Happy National Orthodontic Health Month!


When October comes around the first thing that comes to the mind of most is “trick or treat”, but for orthodontist this means National Orthodontic Health Month.

National Orthodontic Health Month is all about creating awareness about orthodontics and promoting orthodontic health. This is the perfect time for your practice to interact with your surrounding community and patients to help them better understand the importance of what your practice does. It is important that those of all ages understand the health and lifestyle benefits of orthodontics.

With Halloween everywhere this month it’s the perfect opportunity to spread awareness in a fun way.

Here are few ideas for your practice:

-Host an orthodontic community health fair

-Distribute healthy Halloween treats

-Provide patients with healthy Halloween treat recipes

-Host an in-office orthodontic trivia contest

-Post fun orthodontic facts on your website/ social media platforms

-Host a pumpkin smile carving contest

Let us know how your office celebrates and what ideas you come up with. To find out more about National Orthodontic Health Month visit
