Neal Smiles Tooth Club is a unique way to engage our younger siblings of patients or children of adult patients who aren’t ready for orthodontic treatment.

There are many ways to earn Neal Notes through the Tooth Club, including losing your baby teeth! Please talk to our team at the front desk next time you come in to get started in our Club.

Tooth Club members receive:

  1. Neal Smiles T-shirt
  2. Membership card
  3. Exclusive Invitation to Tooth Club parties
  4. Neal Notes

Our tooth club members will generally schedule their first new patient exam around age 7. Age 7 is what the American Association of Orthodontics recommends because many issues can be prevented if treated early. You do not need a referral from your dentist to be evaluated at our office.

Some of the issues we look for are:

Habits

  1. Tongue Thrust
  2. Thumb Sucking/Finger Habit
  3. Mouth Breathing/Snoring
  4. Grinding

Genetics

  1. Family History of Crowding
  2. Jaw Growth Discrepancies

X-ray Anomalies

  1. Severe crowding
  2. Teeth erupting in the wrong direction
  3. Missing teeth
  4. Extra teeth
  5. Impacted teeth

Teeth Protection

  1. Protruding front teeth
  2. Correction to limit future damage and costly dental work

Social issues/Self Esteem Enhancement
