Getting social with the doctors

May 31, 2012

At Factoria Orthodontics, we embrace technology, whether it’s through the innovative treatments we offer, our high-tech web site or our Facebook fan page. As you can probably tell, we love connecting with our patients online, whether it’s by sharing news on our blog or communicating ideas on our fan page. For social media to work, we understand that conversation is vital, and that’s why we invite you to join in and tell us what’s on your mind. Although social networks are hugely popular these days, we know they’re unpredictable and ever-changing.

While Drs. Huang and Fidler and our staff takes time to research how to best use social media, we thought we’d ask you, our loyal patients: How would you like us to use our social networks? What would you like us to share on our blog? Please post your thoughts or give us a call!

Ask Dr. Fidler: “I’m 31 – am I too old for orthodontic treatment?”

Absolutely not.

In fact, our staff at Factoria Orthodontics read a fascinating statistic not too long ago: the number of adults getting braces has actually jumped 24 percent since 1996! It’s true that braces help make your pearly whites strong, healthy and perfectly-aligned, but perhaps another reason for the spike in adult braces is this: people want to look and feel great.

In an age—and society—where looks matter as much as anything, and at a time when evenly-aligned teeth might be the difference between getting a job or a promotion, adults are choosing—wisely—to invest in orthodontics. Treatment with Dr. Fidler can be successful at any age, and we know that adults especially appreciate the benefits of a beautiful and healthy smile.

If you’ve been thinking about getting that perfect smile, Dr. Fidler would love to have you visit for a complimentary consultation at our Bellevue office! Please give us a call to set one up!

Happy Holidays from all of us at Factoria Orthodontics!
