For This Family, Orthodontics is a Family Affair

April 22nd, 2014

Dad Says, “My daughter’s smile lights up a room.”

(ISSUED SPRING 2014) — “A smile is everything,” says Earl Draper, father of three adult offspring who all have photogenic smiles.

It’s been 10 years since his youngest finished Orthodontic treatment at ARCH Orthodontics with Dr. Robert Chavez and his son, Dr. Andrew Chase. “This year,” Earl says, “It was my turn. And my wife is next.”

“I’ve seen firsthand how their smiles gave my kids self-confidence,” says Draper who’s in his early 50’s.  “I’m convinced that their success is due in part to their appearance. My daughter’s teeth are ravishing – like out of a magazine. Her smile lights up a room.”  (In photo left to right, Kimberly, Christopher and Matthew Draper)

Draper’s oldest, Christopher, 27, is a graduate of Boston’s Wentworth Institute of Technology and is following in his dad’s footsteps in the commercial real estate industry as a construction project manager. Son Matthew, 22, will graduate Wentworth this summer with the same major.  And daughter Kimberly, 25, graduated Simmons College’s School of Nursing and is working toward her goal to become a Nurse Practitioner.

“In my work, I represent the landlord, so when I’m talking to a tenant, I want to project the best possible image,” says Draper. “My new smile and appearance give me added confidence. I don’t want to show any imperfections or to be uncomfortable.” His job puts him in regular contact with high-profile tenants in several of Boston’s landmark properties owned by Equity Office Properties, part of The Blackstone Group.

On a dental check-up, Draper’s dentist suggested addressing teeth shifting and misalignment issues caused by a tooth injury years ago. That’s when Draper reconnected with Drs. Chavez and Chase.  “Over the years, I related well with Dr. Chavez. He’s very professional but we share a sense of humor,” he says.

And recently, when his wife Cheryl saw her dentist for crown repairs, the dentist noted her ‘bite’ was off and recommended realignment. “This truly makes it a family affair,” Draper smiles.

Dr. Chavez says that, during his 40 years of practice, there have been many cases in which all the children in a family have needed braces, but it’s not as common to have both parents as patients, too.

Draper likes to think he is as attentive and accommodating to his tenants as the ARCH staff has been to his family: “They did their best to make appointment times fit our busy school and work schedules. Everything was explained and our questions were always answered completely and cheerfully.”

Dr. Chavez says the ARCH team adheres to 5 core values: Support, Professionalism, Integrity, Respect and Excellence. “The acronym SPIRE makes it easy to remember and implement with every patient.”

Local Orthodontists Focus on ‘One Direction’ Toward Greater Self- Confidence

one directionBOSTON, MASS. (Spring 2014)  – It may be difficult to obtain tickets for the One Direction concert on August 8th at Gillette Stadium in Foxboro (MA). But one lucky patient of ARCH Orthodontics and their guest will definitely be present to flash their beautiful smiles at the English-Irish pop boy band.

In a contest now underway, for each new patient that a current ARCH patient refers, he or she will receive one contest entry. There’s no limit to the number of entries one person can receive. The winner will be chosen in a random drawing in July and receive two tickets for the August 8th concert.

“There’s a connection between the band’s name and our philosophy,” says ARCH’s Dr. Andrew Chase. “A great smile and healthy mouth point you in ONE DIRECTION – toward greater self-confidence and better all-around health.”

Dr. Chase adds, “Through this contest and other creative and fun programs, ARCH helps to fully engage patients in their treatment and the improvement of their oral health.”

One Direction’s three albums released in 2011, 2012 and 2013 broke several records, topped the charts in most major markets, and generated hit singles. They have been described as forming part of a new ‘British Invasion’ in the U.S., having sold 19 million singles and 10 million albums, They are the first band to have their first three albums debut at #1 in the U.S. The group has raised millions for cancer and autism research and to feed the hungry.

ARCH, now in its 40th year, has been the Official Orthodontist of Miss Massachusetts for four years. The practice has several convenient offices south of Boston and on Cape Cod. For a free initial consultation including panoral x-rays, call 1-800-28- SMILE, email or visit

Both Dr. Chase and Dr. Chavez discuss how small changes to your smile can make a big difference and improve your life at any age. “We can make a difference in a person’s life at any age,” says Dr. Chavez who points to hundreds of patients from ages 4 to 84 as proof.  During the shows, the doctors display and discuss patients’  ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos.
