Dr. Mark Berkman recently joined Michigan Orthodontics, where he practices with Drs. André Haerian and Terry Timm. Their office, where smiles have been created since 1973, is recently updated and uses the newest technology to deliver state-of-the-art Orthodontic specialty care.

His five tips for a spectacular smile are:

It’s winter, so keep lips well moisturized. If your smile is a picture, they are the frame!

Following the recommendation of the American Association of Orthodontists, children should see an orthodontist for a screening at age seven.
If you’re wearing braces, carry a toothbrush, so that you can brush after every meal and not feel self-conscious about food caught in a
visible area.

Drink more tea! It stains less than coffee and black tea has been shown to help prevent gum disease

Get confident! A smile is on of the best ways to convey confidence and happiness without words. Are you using yours to your advantage?

Want more tips or have questions? You may contact Dr. Berkman at 734-429-5433 or learn more about Michigan Orthodontics at MIbraces.com. 214 W. Michigan Ave., Saline.
