By far the individuals with the most unappreciated role in the orthodontic
treatment of a child are the parents. It is the mom or dad that bears
-the responsibility for making the appointment, bringing the child to the
-appointment, coordinating schedules, and usually being unappreciated in the
process. Look at usually any mother's (and many times fathers) planners and
it is amazing that an additional monthly commitment is even workable.

Who picks the child up from soccer or dance or wh ever an, 'rus es o ge
to the orthodontic appointment on time? Who gets the phone call at the
most inopportune time and must change their schedule at the last minute
to bring the child in for some unexpected emergency? Who hears the
words"I can't find my retainer'? Who worries about the child not brushing
well enough, and who gets the complaining that something else is more
important? The answer to all these questions is mom or dad. The parent
also is the one who hears the gripes and woes of the patient.

Parents are the 'Heroes' of the orthodontist. It is the parent that must put
child before all else, and make a financial commitment because they know
whether their child wants braces or not, it is the "right- thing to,do.„.

That is one reason why we added the additional location to our offfce. We
want to make things easier for mom or dad and have an environment that
shows we care and appreciate the parent. The parent is the -unsung" hero
of orthodontics and we tip our hats to the moms and dads who make our job
easier. And lastly, here's something you rarely hear,'THANKYOU!"

Our slate-of-the-art orthodontic facility is located in
West Bloomfield/Commerce Township. 2300 Haggerty Road, Suite 1160
248-9264100. We are also pleased to announce a 2nd location in
Waterford (at the corner of Crescent Lake Road and M-59)
5133 Highland Road, 248-673-4100.

Honet, and the late Pola and the late

Kingswood Girls Middle School in
Bloomfield Hills. She shopped for

for Girls in Detroit and felt this mitz-
vah project was very meaningful.

Weisberg will lead
the congregation in
prayer at Temple
Israel in West
