Looking for a great useful #giftidea ? http://ift.tt/2AnvlqK I don’t know about #2 or #5, but the rest are definitely good choices.

Only your #orthodontist can give you a #smile like this. (Well, the teeth and you are missing in this picture, but you get the idea.) I’ve heard people talking about other treatments not offered by an orthodontist… but without an orthodontist to turn to with questions about discomfort or fit of an appliance, then is the next option to @google it? The #bestidea is to go to someone who cares about your best possible outcome. Don’t waste your valuable time and money going to a non-qualified option with no one to help you #getitright #raleigh #raleighnc #orthodontics #youwontbedisappointed

Today is National Astronomy Day…. THEY FOUND A NEW PLANET!!!!

Wow.  Just wow.  It’s amazing what we can find out about our world… our galaxy.  The new planet is called 2003UB313.  There’s still so much to learn.  I still have that love of @NASA and what they’re doing.  SO COOL!!  #RaleighNC #Raleigh #Orthodontics @ExplorersClub has some @NASA_astronauts in it!!

Tomorrow is World Heart Day

While we all love the imagery we will see on our social media for World Heart Day, it’s a day that is meant to put the spot light on heart disease (aka cardiovascular disease).  Please get out there and exercise more and help your “people” to do so too.

@RexHealthcare has a fitness center in case you’re nearby!  All the best, as it’s not easy to fit in, but all the research says it makes us happier!! (Well, all the scientific stuff, that is!)

“There’s Gold In Them Thar Hills” Mark Twain

Yesterday was the anniversary of Gold discovery sparking the Klondike Gold Rush in 1896.

While there is some gold used in orthodontics, wouldn’t it be more fun to see this cute puppy golden retriever instead?

Total Solar Eclipse Monday 8-21-17

Image by Kris Brauer at Noun Project

 

I’ve talked to some people who were thinking of viewing the eclipse without the proper glasses.  Please don’t.  You could damage your eyes or go permanently blind. Here’s how to do it properly. “The only safe way to look directly at the uneclipsed or partially eclipsed Sun is through special-purpose solar filters.”

Here’s a cool Powerpoint with more information and myths about solar eclipses courtesy of Karl Citek, O.D., Ph.D., FAAO, Professor of Optometry, Pacific University College of Optometry, Forest Grove, Oregon.

Here’s the recommendations from the American Astronomical Society who have a list of retail chains with no delay on shipping:

August 16th …. 1858!! Transatlantic Telegraph Line Inaugurated

Today in 1858 Queen Victoria and President James Buchanan exchanged messages via the new Transatlantic Telegraph Line.  It consisted of 7 copper wires.  (Orthodontists use copper wires often).  We love Wired (the magazine), obviously.  In this article Wired author Duncan Geere tells us, “The first message took 17 hours and 40 minutes to transmit.” Now that’s a long time to be on hold!

 

Today is International Youth Day!!

Youth Building Peace is the theme today 8/12/17 and is dedicated to celebrating how youths support and are committed to building and sustaining peace.  International Youth Day was endorsed and adopted with a 1999 UN resolution.

We appreciate you!!
