Adult Braces

Dentists offer a wide range of dental treatments, including routine teeth and gum care, […]

Watching the clock tick down the final seconds until midnight, many of us- Nettune & Banasiak Orthodontic Associates included- feel nostalgic about the passing year and hopeful about the new one to come. New Year’s Eve is one of the most widely celebrated holidays in the world, with over-the-top celebrations taking place in dozens of countries.

In the United States, New Year’s Day is a public holiday; government offices, schools, public organizations, and many businesses are closed for the […]
