Gift for ortho office?

If you have finished with your orthodontic treatment and are wearing retainers (or will be soon), this is a special place to connect with others in your (enviable) situation. Ask a question or make a comment about life post-braces.

Cute idea, I'd go with some kind of teeth related christmas ornament.

I gave my ortho some flowers plus some bottles of wine to share with her team. My ortho told me the nurse had a bottle of mouthwash for me-which turned out to be vintage champagne when I looked in the bag.

Brackets added to premolars 2 April 2012
Estimated treatment time originally 6-9 months
. Brace removed on 22 July 2013 after 18 months and 19 days
Now enjoying bonded upper retainer plus part time essix/hawley( I have both)

Love the suggestion of Edible Arrangements! I was going to bring some cupcakes and treats from a famous local bakery in my neighborhood during one of my adjustment visits, but it just seems so inappropriate to give sweet, sticky treats to people who work on teeth?! I even thought of including a note to say "Enjoy the treats: I know you have enough toothbrushes here for afterwards!". haha :lol:
