As we approach “Thanksgiving eve”, we think of the many gifts we have in our lives; most importantly the people who are our family and the patients who we now call friends. We are grateful each and every day for the trust you have given us and the smiles we have shared. We are blessed beyond all measure and wish many blessings on you and yours.
Happy Thanksgiving from Dr. Snow and the Team at Snow Orthodontics!

Here are some thoughts by writer Melody Beattie that we felt were a good inspiration for the holiday:

Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more.

It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.

It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend.

It turns problems into gifts, failures into successes, the unexpected into perfect timing, and mistakes into important events.

It can turn an existence into a real life, and disconnected situations into important and beneficial lessons. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.

Make sure you do not miss out on valuable tax savings with your 2015 Flex Spending plan. This is a use it or lose it situation! The average amount forfeited annually from unused Flex or HSA accounts is between $75 and $500. This is money that has been deducted pre-tax from your income, so plan to use it before year’s end. What better way to use your balance remaining than an investment in your smile?

Schedule a new patient exam now and you can start braces or Invisalign before the end of the year. You can also get an estimated cost for your expenses in 2016 so you can set up your plan for next year to maximize your benefit.

When all the gifts are opened and the holiday decorations put away, there will still be pictures of you and your loved ones for everyone to see. Are you hiding your smile? A new smile is a gift that lasts forever and your beautiful smile can stand out in photographs for years to come, if you get started today.
