A smile is front and center for all patients. So adding a tool to your practice that can dramatically change a smile means adding a tool that can truly change a patient’s life. Six Month Smiles is an important addition for dentists who are looking to provide meaningful dentistry to patients eager for confident smiles.
You know that new-patient care generally starts with an acute need or routine cleaning. And once that patient is in your office, you have to demonstrate that they can turn to you for every dental question or concern. When your patients sit down in your chair, they are giving you a unique opportunity to build trust and establish a long-term relationship.
Discover how to achieve meaning dentistry in your practice, by downloading the Free Comprehensive Guide to Six Month Smiles®. Help your patients see beyond basic care; help them to see your practice as an invaluable resource for themselves and their families.
Easier said than done, right? Dentistry will always be the core of your business. You have to pick and choose the added benefits that will best serve your clients while allowing you to remain focused on core dental needs.

"Stacie" is 29 years old and presented with a chief complaint of wanting to address the spacing between her teeth. She had no specific concerns regarding the overjet or deep bite and had previously had a comprehensive ortho consult in which she was advised that she would require orthognathic surgery in conjunction with full fixed orthodontic treatment.
Orthodontists and orthodontic purists will certainly insist upon every tooth having to be in exactly its proper place and rotation at the close of orthodontic treatment. In the past few years, there has certainly been a movement toward a simpler orthodontic solution for those patients (mostly adults) who just want to have straighter teeth, and an improvement in occlusion, without having full-blown orthodontic treatment stretching over a 2- to 3-year period.

Six Month Smiles® education is in large part designed to take the mystery out of moving teeth. This is not meant to trivialize the discipline of orthodontics, but rather “demystify” the process so that general dentists are more capable of helping more adult patients achieve the smile they want.
We are able to prep teeth, remove the pulps of teeth, replace missing teeth, scale teeth, remineralize teeth, remove teeth, repair teeth and some dentists involved in research are even able to grow teeth! But an ability that is lacking for most? The ability to move teeth.
