WIN a Floss Like a Boss Kit from Dr. G!


When it comes to creating smiles that last for a lifetime, we know that orthodontics is one part of a overall dental health program.  That’s why we refer our patients back to their primary dentist for cleanings at 3 month intervals instead of 6.

We are offering a Spring Cleaning Giveway of 10 “Floss like a Boss” kits to our active patients that participate in having a cleaning by May 27th 2021.

Here’s how the contest works:


Step 1: Book a Cleaning

Step 4: Floss Like a Boss!
