At Brieden Orthodontics, our mission is to help patients of all ages throughout the East China & New Baltimore, MI area achieve a great smile. While orthodontic treatments like braces and Invisalign are one of the primary ways we accomplish this, we also deeply believe that patient education is vital to creating great smiles. That's why we're excited to announce that we'll be facilitating field trips for third graders in both East China and New Baltimore – providing an excellent opportunity for kids to learn more about what it takes to maintain great oral hygiene!

Orthodontic Field Trip at Brieden Orthodontics

Later this month, we'll be welcoming local third graders into our office to learn more about dentistry, orthodontics, and what it takes to have a healthy smile. The field trip to our New Baltimore office will take place on the 21st, and our East China field trip will happen the following day, on the 22nd. For each trip, Dr. Brieden is proudly covering the cost of transportation for all students.

Once the students arrive at our office, we'll break everyone into 4 groups and have them rotate through 4 different educational stations. Each station will cover a different element of oral health, and by the end of the trip, each student will have visited every station. The education stations will be as follows:

  • Station 1: This station will teach students about dental x-rays, digital photographs, and the exciting new technologies used in diagnosis and examination.
  • Station 2: Here, students will learn how impressions and models are used to better understand the teeth and plan treatment.
  • Station 3: This station will teach students proper brushing techniques and what it takes to maintain great oral hygiene.
  • Station 4: Finally, students will learn about orthodontics, the different types of malocclusions, and how we use braces to straighten teeth and achieve a better smile.

Every participant in the field trip will walk away with a fun take-home packet including a dental activity book, toothbrush, floss, and toothpaste. Plus, we'll be holding an additional contest to see who has the best brushing technique – and anyone who enters will have the chance to win a brand new Sonicare toothbrush!
