FIRST THINGS FIRST - WE MUST get the braces off of kids who cannot get access to treatment. PERIOD. Somebody has to do something - and those somebodies are orthodontists. We are the experts in this area. Regardless of how many of these ill advised or questionable cases were started by non-specialists, we are the people who can come to the rescue for Texas' kids.
The state and national societies will not act quickly enough to help these children who are caught in this firestorm. We can no longer wait for these organizations - we need individuals of character to step forward and step up to the challenge.
Commit now, and beginning in January 2013, practices across Texas will open our doors to remove braces for kids who have been without care for over a year. Email Dr. Ben Burris at email@example.com or call 870-926-5321 for information or to pledge your support, your time, and/or your office to help the kids. Change the conversation and show the world that responsible orthodontists will fill the void left by others and do what's right for the children of Texas!
