This upcoming Sunday - which happens to be Independence Day, of course - Our staff will celebrate our nation's 234th birthday. For most folks, the Fourth of July is a chance to celebrate and commemorate America's Declaration of Independence. It's also a time for every American to pay homage to all our soldiers, past, present and future - who lost their lives in battle - and the brave servicemen- and women who place themselves in harm's way every day so that we may continue enjoy our freedoms.
Today, we thought we'd ask: what are your Fourth of July weekend plans? Are you heading to a barbecue? A picnic? Hitting the open road with family? Having fun in the sun?
Whatever you might be doing over Independence Day weekend, our entire staff hope you have a great week and a safe and happy Fourth of July weekend! Feel free to post your Independence Day photos on our Facebook page!

At Get It Straight Orthodontics, we know how much a person can benefit from an straighter, healthier smile. The boost in self-confidence can work wonders, which is why Get it Straight Orthodontics has partnered with Good Looks For Kids (through McAvoy Foundation), a Chicago-based non-profit foundation "committed to image wellness for low- to middle-income adolescents who are battling cancer".
Every year, Dr. Neil donates one probono orthodontic case to the organization. In 2008, Dr. Neil was even featured in USA Today when he worked with a patient battling leukemia in 2008. Because of the patient's weakened bones, Dr. Warshawsky recommended the SureSmile system to shorten treatment and minimize tooth movement.

Now that we’re in June, our staff at Get it Straight Orthodontics thought we’d tell you June is National Smile Month, and a good time to remind all our patients to practice good oral hygiene between your visits to see our doctors.
Below are a few simple steps you can take to improve your oral health so that you may celebrate National Smile Month for many, many years to come:
* Brush at least twice a day with fluoride toothpaste.
* Floss everyday to clean between your teeth.
* Reduce your intake of sugary foods and drinks during your orthodontic treatment with us.
* Visit your dentist regularly (usually every six months apart).
If you have questions about any of these tips, we encourage you to give us a call. We hope you enjoyed the long holiday weekend!
