HOW I LOST MY RETAINER. WHAT'S YOUR STORY?

It all started when my dogs and I were at my cousins’ house while my parents were away. We were all down in the basement watching a movie after a party and both dogs were sleeping right next to me. 
I decided to put my retainers in because I started to get sleepy. We talked until like 3am and then finally fell asleep. I had the weirdest dream that night, I was riding my horse on the beach and then I hit my face on a tree branch and all of my teeth fell out. I woke up just as I was gathering all of the teeth from in the sand. 
When I looked around now that I was up my big dog was still sleeping and the little one was not there any more. Then I realized my retainers had fallen out but only one of them were still on the bed with me. I put the one I found back in its case and went looking for the other one... I look under the bed and a set of beady black
Daschund eyes stared at me with my top retainer in its mouth. I screamed and pulled Duke, my dog out from under the bed but it was too late.
My retainer was a goner and there was no way of saving it. So I threw the mauled piece of expensive plastic into the trash.

GELLERMAN ORTHODONTICS KEEPS UP WITH THE LATEST

We are always on the lookout for innovative orthodontic technology so that we can bring our patients the latest in orthodontic care.  We have recently started using a new bracket system, known as H4 and we are very excited about it.  H4 is a low-friction orthodontic solution that gives us optimal control of tooth movement, with great design that features smoother edges to increase patient comfort.
But like the old song that advises “make new friends and keep the old,” we also keep the tried and true systems that we know are sound practices.  Every patient is different, and this approach gives us the ability to select the exactly right system for each patient, whether it is a new bracket system, a new kind of hidden braces or a traditional product.  Here is how we see it:  the more treatment options we have, the better we may serve our patients.
When it comes to clinical and administrative and systems, we also stay at the forefront.  Whether it is taking a group webinar class before office hours, traveling to educational events out of state or hosting study groups for our peers, we devote a lot of time to learning and training.  We are always trying to improve our services, our skills and ourselves, so that we can serve our clients in the best possible manner.

We are very proud of the level of service we provide, and we always want to do better.  If there is something that our patients want to share with us, we invite you to send us an email at info@drgellerman.com, or stop by the office and share it with us personally.  We are always happy to see you!
