Contest Winner’s Choice: A Day of Beauty or a Day of Racing

November 18th, 2015

cartThe winner of a referral contest sponsored by a local Orthodontic practice will be able to choose whether they want ‘A Day of Beauty’ or a ‘Day of Racing.’

For each new patient that a current patient refers to ARCH Orthodontics, the patient will receive one entry. New patients must begin treatment by March 31, 2016. The person with the most referrals can either enjoy a complete beauty / hair makeover at the award-winning Makeovers Salon + Spa in Easton, or a heart-pumping visit to the F1 Boston kart racing track in Braintree.

Dr. Andrew Chase of ARCH said, “We’re always looking for new ways to create excitement for our patients, whether they are 4 or 84. We hear from our ‘alumcutni’ who attest to the fact that their new, wonderful smiles give them more self-confidence and improve how others perceive them. This contest gives everyone one more reason to smile.”

ARCH Orthodontics, the Official Orthodontist of Miss Massachusetts, offers free initial consultations (a $500 value) and no-interest financing.  The practice also extends courtesy discounts to families of military personnel and veterans, and to municipal employees in the 9 towns where ARCH has offices.  For an appointment, call 1-800-28- SMILE, email:  or visit

Orthodontists Salute National Heroes Veterans, Active Military and Their Families to Receive Courtesy ‘Thank You’ Discounts

November 6th, 2015

usTo mark Veteran’s Day and honor veterans and all those currently serving in any branch of the U.S. Armed Forces –and their families – ARCH Orthodontics is continuing a tradition and offering a courtesy discount of 5% off the cost of an Orthodontic treatment plan.

“This is our way of saluting our National Heroes,” says Dr. Andrew Chase. These courageous men and women who defend democracy and protect our country. They deserve a healthy and great smile because of what they’ve done or are doing.”

“A healthy America needs healthy citizens,” Dr. Chase adds. “Life is full of things to smile about and Orthodontic treatment is an investment in that smile which will reap benefits for a lifetime. A healthy and attractive smile creates a better impression on the outside that permeates from the inside.”

“ARCH Orthodontics is especially proud to have on its team Dr. Janeen Hughes,” Dr. Chase said. Events of 9/11 inspired her to change her plans and become a dentist with a Marine unit headed for Iraq. Dr. Hughes served as the only dentist onboard an amphibious ship off Kuwait in 2004. She earned a Navy Commendation Medal and a Letter of Appreciation for Outstanding Orthodontic Service from the U.S. Navy. She practices in ARCH’s Canton and Randolph offices.

Dr. Chase’s father, Dr. Robert Chavez who founded ARCH 41 years ago in Stoughton, said, in addition to the 5% courtesy discount, ARCH offers a complimentary initial consultation (a $500 value), plus no-interest financing.

Those currently serving in the military, veterans and members of their immediate families should mention the family member who served or is serving when calling to set up an appointment.

October Is National Orthodontic Health Month

October 5th, 2015

spooky“October is National Orthodontic Health Month”– the perfect opportunity to remind everyone of the positive impact Orthodontic care can have,  and to remind people of all ages to eat healthier and care for their teeth and gums all year long,” says Dr. Andrew Chase of ARCH Orthodontics.

“Every child should have a check-up with an Orthodontist by age 7,” he says, concurring with the recommendation of the American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) of which he is a long-time member. “For some children, a timely evaluation will lead to significant treatment benefits initiated at the right time. For others, the principal immediate benefit is a parent’s peace of mind.”

Dr. Chase says Orthodontics can improve how you look and also have a positive impact on your health. If you have crowded teeth, braces can improve your ability to keep everything clean, reduce periodontal problems and tooth wear. If you experience pain or discomfort from TMJ, Orthodontics can offer long-term relief. It can also have a positive impact on your confidence.

While the traditional Orthodontic patient is in the 10 – 16 age range, Dr. Chase says about 30% of today’s patients are adults who want to improve their looks and self-confidence. “Aligned, well-spaced teeth make it easier to brush and floss correctly, and present a great image.” Studies show that a great smile can help you socially and professionally. Based on patient experience and national surveys, Dr. Chase says having a great smile can add $1.5 million or more to your lifelong earnings!

“This is also the ideal time to remind anyone with braces of our ‘Rule of 5’s,’ says ARCH founder Dr. Robert Chavez.  His braces care checklist consists of these rules, all associated with the number ‘5’:

(1)   Brush 5 times throughout the day – after breakfast, lunch or after school; after supper; after snacks and before bed.

(2)    Each time you brush, for each tooth on 5 surfaces, brush in toward the gums, under the wire, on top of the wire, on top of the tooth, and in back of the tooth.

(3)    At the end of the day, spend 5 full minutes to brush, floss and fluoride rinse.

Dr. Chase estimates that the ARCH team has treated about 25,000 patients of all ages since his father, Dr. Chavez, opened his first office in Stoughton 41 years ago. Today ARCH operates 9 offices between Boston and Orleans on Cape Cod.

For the fifth year, ARCH Orthodontics is the Official Orthodontist of Miss Massachusetts and its Scholarship Foundation. ARCH offers free initial consultation (a $500 value) and no-interest financing.

Representing the Bay State, Meagan Fuller of Attleboro appeared on the nationally broadcast Miss America Pageant in Atlantic City.  Her platform is America’s Promise Alliance, a national organization devoted to helping to create the conditions for success for all young people. It is based on the belief that all children are capable of learning and thriving, and that every individual, institution and sector shares the responsibility to help young people succeed.


Meagan, who served as an AmeriCorps ‘Promise Fellow’ in New Bedford, earned her BA in Communication Studies at the University of Alabama and her Master’s in Public Health at Tulane. She plans a career in health communication: “I want to educate people of all ages on ways to keep themselves healthy, and learn about preventative medicine so people stay healthier while reducing healthcare costs. I want to work toward a more strategic allocation of resources.”

ARCH’s Dr. Andrew Chase says, “We share common values and a philosophy with the Miss Massachusetts program: to strive for excellence and to do our part to improve the community. We believe life is full of things to smile about and that Orthodontic treatment is an investment in that smile which will reap benefits for a lifetime. A healthy and attractive smile always creates a better impression.” Dr. Robert Chavez says, “This is the 6th year that ARCH  has supported the Miss Mass. Scholarship Foundation because of its dedication to helping young women recognize their potential.” ARCH was the first Miss Massachusetts Orthodontic sponsor in the organization’s history.

ARCH Orthodontics has 9 offices south of Boston and on Cape Cod. As part of its 41st  anniversary celebration, ARCH is offering free consultations for all ages – a $500 value – and no-interest financing.  ARCH is also offering a courtesy discount to those currently serving in the military, veterans and members of their immediate families. A similar offer is extended to municipal employees in the towns where ARCH has offices and their immediate families.
