Andrew's beautiful new smile...

Andrew has never, ever remembered when his upcoming orthodontist appointments were. I would drop him off, he would get the work done and then make his next appointment. When I would get around to asking him when it was scheduled...he would have absolutely no clue. We would wait for the call from the orthodontist's office the night before his appointments.

This was not the case this month. I asked him on Monday (keep in mind that it was the day after a 9 day vacation) if he remembered when his orthodontist appointment was. "Thursday at 8:00 a.m. It will be a 75 minute appointment." I was in shock. But, why was I surprised he remembered the last appointment? It was the day he was supposed to get the braces off!

He was a bit worried since everyone at school warned him that sometimes they tell you that you aren't quite ready and then you have to wait another month. (That sounds like many of my OB visits on the due dates of all of my children, but that is another story.)

Luckily for Andrew, today was the day. Here is Andrew before he went into SmilePerfect this morning. Maybe he will now smile more!
