There are many reasons to change jobs: looking for a better opportunity, increase in pay or responsibility, layoffs, etc. No matter what the reason, it’s quite common. According to the U.S. Department of Labor Statistics, younger baby boomers (those born between 1957 and 1964) had almost 12 jobs from ages 18 – 50. Not surprisingly, almost half of those jobs were held from ages 18 – 24.

A smile can communicate many things. What is your smile saying about you?

If you’re looking for a way to straighten your smile, without the appearance of metal braces, Invisalign is right for you.

What is Invisalign?

Invisalign-v-bracesInvisalign® braces are a series of nearly invisible, custom-made, 3D-printed aligner trays that gradually shift your teeth into place.
