May is National Teen Self-Esteem Month®

Celebrate with a Smile!

two female teensEach May, ARCH Orthodontics recognizes National Teen Self-Esteem Month. Having nine locations throughout the greater Boston area, we work closely with so many teenagers (and their parents). Our orthodontists and team members understand how crucial it is for teens to feel healthy and confident.

We always want everyone (especially teens) to feel comfortable with their smile and their overall appearance too. Why? Because your ARCH orthodontist knows that the thought of having braces can sometimes do more to hinder or hurt a teen’s self-esteem rather than help it.

Feeling Encouraged. Being Involved.

Getting to know our teenage patients and their families over the course of orthodontic treatment is part of what makes what we do so special. Whether it’s asking how they’re doing in school or how they’re doing with their latest sporting activity, we take the time to understand and learn about their interests and hobbies. Being involved and acting as a positive role model are just a few ways to help stop negative self-images and boost confidence. We always encourage parents to do the same.

“It’s so rewarding to really get to know who our patients truly are. We spend years with them during treatment and develop a relationship with entire families that is very unique,” says Dr. Andrew Chase. “You see the transformation in their smile and their life. There’s nothing more special than putting a smile on someone’s face and having such a positive impact on their life. We do that through orthodontics and having fun in the office.”

The Confidence of a Healthy Smile

When a teen has healthy self-esteem and feels good about themselves, it can give them the added drive they need to succeed in accomplishing goals and aspirations. When you have a  smile that looks good, you feel good and are often more outgoing. ARCH Orthodontics wants to help you become a healthy, happy, more self-assured version of you. If you or your teen is lacking self-esteem because of a not-so-straight smile, we invite you to schedule a consultation at any of our nine ARCH locations. Orthodontic treatment can correct crooked teeth, uneven spacing, overbites, and underbites. You’ll receive a thorough exam, diagnosis, and treatment plan that can help give your smile, your confidence, and your self-esteem a big boost.
