Graduation 2009 and the Best Smile Award from Okun Orthodontics

June is almost over and so are this spring’s graduations. Many of our patients graduated from Middle School and High School, including Dr. Okun’s children. It gives us great pleasure to see the beautiful smiles we helped to create in yearbooks and at graduation ceremonies.

We’ve always said that “a beautiful smile can change your self image.” So many times we’ve seen new patients talk with their hands in front of their mouths because they are afraid for people to see their teeth. After wearing braces, they feel so good about themselves that they walk down the street smiling. A smile is contagious. Everyone they smile at smiles back, reinforcing that good feeling.

Dr. Okun’s patients are known for sharing their smiles. In fact, this year two of the three student’s winning the “Best Smile Award” in the Westchester Hebrew High School Yearbook were patient’s of Dr. Okun! Thank you to Sarah E. and Eddie G. for sharing those beautiful smiles every day!
