Season’s Greetings from Drs. Eckler and Black Orthodontists!

December 10th, 2017


In this season given to tidings of comfort and joy, and as our team at Drs. Eckler and Black Orthodontists reflect on the year that was, we’d like to ask you, our wonderful patients: What do you love about the holidays this year? Being with your loved ones? A clean slate for 2012? Opening presents by the fireplace? All the delicious food? Also, what gift are you most looking forward to getting this year?

We’d love if you shared with us all the things you love about the holidays. Stay warm, and don’t forget to stay away from those sweets!

Happy Holidays from Drs. Eckler & Black and all of us at Drs. Eckler and Black Orthodontists!

Are you wearing your mouthguard?

November 10th, 2017

With fall sports close to wrapping up and winter sports right around the corner, many patients here at Dr. Eckler & Black Orthodontists will once again pick up the ball, bring the cleats out of seasonal retirement and hit the fields for the return of sports action! During this time, however, Drs. Eckler and Black and our team urge our young athletes to play it safe when out on the field. Here are a few ways to ensure your mouth’s safety this fall and winter, courtesy of our friends at the Canadian Association of Orthodontists:

1. Wear mouth guards for contact sports such as basketball, wrestling and hockey
2. Wear a helmet
3. Wear protective eyewear
4. Wear a face shield to avoid scratched or bruised skin
5. Be alert, even as a spectator

We hope that helps. Drs. Eckler and Black will both tell you protective gear is vital for anyone engaging in tooth or mouth-threatening activities. If you have any further questions about any of these tips, please contact our office or ask us on Facebook. Stay safe!
