Hey, Puyallup, looking for an orthodontist the kids will want to go to?
No, I’m not crazy.
Dr. Larson and our friends at Smiles Orthodontics are launching a new program that lets your kids earn points to spend on Amazon. Yes, Amazon!
As you may remember, our older son is a patient at Smiles, and when I told him about this new program he forgot he was a surly tweenager for one full minute while he pumped his fist in the air and said, “Yes!” You might say he’s a fan.
How does it work? Kids earn points for a whole range of things, from taking good care of their teeth to volunteering in the community (love this)! They can also earn points for sharing the Smiles love by doing things like posting pics of their progress on social media and referring friends and family.
Points will be added to a hard, plastic card similar to a credit card. When your kiddo cashes ’em in, he’ll get a code to use on Amazon for ANYTHING-and is there anything Amazon doesn’t sell? I don’t think so.
If your child is already a patient, her current Smile Bucks can be easily converted to this new system. Points can be viewed online 24/7, and there will be options for young patients who aren’t quite ready for braces to earn points, too. Has your kiddo had her evaluation yet? Seven is the perfect age.
No other doctor in the area is offering anything like this rewards program, and if your kids are anything like mine, they are going to love it!
The point, of course, is to keep your kids motivated and feeling positive about their orthodontic treatment. Happy patients are going to take better care of their teeth, and they may even need less treatment time. Here at our house, having our son feel positive about his journey to straighter teeth has been a huge, huge blessing.
I also super love Dr.Larson and his team, and his genuine desire to be a part of this community. My kiddo bumps into one of his bffs almost every time we go in, which makes it easier, too! You can get more information about Smiles Orthodontics and Dr.Larson at their website. They also have fun updates on Facebook and your other favorite social media. If you are looking for an orthodontist, or wondering if you need one, just give them a call. The friendly staff will set you right up, and initial visits are always free. You can reach them at 253.848.4537. Please do say you saw ’em on Sounds Fun Mom. Thanks!
Update-Right now, if you’re a new patient, and you mention Sounds Fun Mom (or show the Smiles ad on your phone), you will get a free Waterpik at the start of treatment! We got one when our son started braces, and it has been Super helpful. This is also a really high dollar freebie-just remember to mention their ad at SFM to get it. Thanks so much!
