Be prepared for the school year with these easy tips for braces!

Be prepared for the school year with these easy tips for braces!

  • Pack A Compact Mirror: can’t make it to the bathroom? Having a mirror handy will help you ensure that nothing is stuck in your teeth or braces.
  • Chapstick/Lip Balm: fight chapped lips this fall by always having your lips moisturized and protected from the elements such as cold and wind.
  • Extra Rubber Bands: if you are one of the many people that need to wear rubber bands on your braces, make sure you’re always prepared with extras in case one breaks or falls off.
  • Avoid Difficult Foods: Foods can be tricky with braces. Try to avoid things such as nuts, seeds, super sticky candies or stringy foods. Any of these can either get stuck in your braces or run the risk of breaking them and it can be difficult to remove these foods from your braces.
  • Pack a Portable Toothbrush/Floss Kit: having a small toothbrush & toothpaste with floss can be a life saver in between meals. It’s important to brush after eating to prevent food being stuck in your braces and to prevent tooth decay.

What our customers say

Will Merritt


This is the best dentist in town and they have always worked with me, and I'm terrified of going to the dentist. These guys are very fast in the dental work they do and super gentle

Mark Beehler


I have been a patient at Southtown Dental for several years. After 50 years of not looking forward to going to the dentist, I can say that I actually enjoy going now. The hygienist, Deanna, is outstanding. Not only does she do a terrific job but she is gentle and very personable. The office staff is professional and on point. They are also very welcoming and friendly. It really comes down to the dentist care which has always been very good. Today my teeth are clean and sparkly- I look forward to going back in 6 months!

Seeing Dr. Fielding and the rest of the staff is like visiting the family. They provide a comfortable warm, setting and professionalism beyond expectations.

We loved our experience! Miss Jackie and Dr. Callahan helped my 3 year old enjoy his first full cleaning! Thank you 😊

Jenna DeVincentis


Another wonderful visit for my two young daughters. Everyone is accommodating, kid-friendly, and patient. Dr. Bill and his staff went above and beyond to be sure my girls were comfortable.
