Summer is quickly approaching, which means vacations, summer camps, water slides and tons of warm-weather fun for our Papillion braces and Invisalign patients. However, for some people, especially new braces-wearers, the idea of being out and about or away from home (and Dr. Hawley) leaves them worried about dealing with a braces emergency. First, we have to say, a true braces emergency is extremely, extremely rare.
We love MOMS!!! While any day is a good day to show the moms in your life how much you appreciate them, Mother’s Day, which is Sunday, May 13th this year, (hint, hint!) is a great time to pull out all the stops! Now, to help you give your mom, wife, grandmother, or mom friends the celebration they deserve, we’re sharing our best Mother’s Day ideas, ranging from gifts for mom to where to go to mark the occasion!
Dr. Hawley and the Hawley Orthodontics team are getting in the holiday spirit. With so many Omaha family events going on, there’s plenty of festive fun to be had. It’s a wonderful time of year and we hope all of our patients and their families enjoy every second of it. To help you do just that, we’ve compiled a list of 10 Omaha holiday activities that will leave you feeling merry and bright.
One of the things Dr. Hawley likes best about being a Greater Omaha orthodontist is getting to know patients and their families throughout their smile transformation. In doing so, we chat with a lot of moms at our practice, either when they bring their kids to see us or when they’re undergoing treatment themselves. Not only that, many of the Hawley Orthodontics team members are parents too. The point is, we know that when you’re raising little humans, it’s important to have support, guidance and, of course, a bit of fun. Thankfully, there are a number of Omaha mommy bloggers, meetups, and groups (along with one for the dads) to allow you to do just that and we’re sharing some of our favorites.
It’s only natural that our Papillion braces patients are curious about their food options as soon as they start treatment at Hawley Orthodontics. Many of them believe the myth that you have to give up a lot of your favorite treats when you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment. Well, we’re here to tell you that that’s absolutely not true. You can still enjoy the things you love! After Dr. Hawley puts your braces on, one of our team members will give you a rundown of what to add to your grocery list and we guarantee you’ll be pleasantly surprised. In the meantime, here’s a brief overview of some of our recommended foods as well as ideas for where to eat out with braces on in Omaha and the surrounding area.
As a Papillion, Nebraska orthodontist, Gretna resident and father of four daughters with tons of energy, Dr. Hawley has the inside line on all of the awesome things to do with kids in Omaha and the surrounding areas.
