Last weekend, Dr. Neil attended the 2011 AAO Annual Session in Chicago. Be sure to check out a few of the photos from the Incognito braces booth!

The high-tech braces are 100% customized to the precise shape of your mouth, so that our patients get the most efficient and effective tooth movement!

If you know Dr. Neil Warshawsky, you know his goal is to give his patients unparalleled orthodontic care, resulting in healthy, aesthetic results that give you the comfort and confidence to smile!

Since Dr. Neil is a clinical instructor for 3M, he will be working at the event to share his expertise with other orthodontists. We're actually one of the world’s most experienced practices in working with Incognito braces!

May marks National Physical Fitness and Sports Month!

May 6th, 2011

Did you know the month of May is designated National Physical Fitness and Sports Month? In 1983, President Ronald Reagan encouraged Americans to incorporate more physical activity into their lives, and the reminder is even more significant in this day and age, as kids everywhere are distracted more and more by television, social networking and video games. Kids living an active lifestyle can improve their health, productivity and overall well-being, and best of all? It doesn’t have to take a lot of time!

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has provided these public health guidelines for your convenience. The guidelines call for children and teens to exercise for at least one hour each day of moderate intensity physical activity (such as playing sports or brisk walking) or one hour and 15 minutes of vigorous activity (jogging, dancing and jumping rope).

At Get It Straight Orthodontics, we always encourage our patients to stay fit by exercising or participating in sports. However, we want to remind you to always wear a mouth guard or other forms of facial protection when playing sports. To learn more about how often your child should exercise, we recommend you check out this series of helpful articles about kids and exercise, courtesy of our friends at KidsHealth.org.
