Congrats Miss Ohio Teen USA-- Barnett Orthodontics Patient

Becoming Miss Ohio Teen USA takes more than a beautiful smile, but straight teeth are certainly an important part of the package!

We were excited to learn recently that our past patient, Bridget Linton was crowned Miss Teen Ohio 2010. Bridget is an amazing person both inside and out and has used her position this year to work with different organizations such as the American Heart Association, Girl Talk and D.A.R.E. She has visited Ohio schools to encourage children to become aware of their inner beauty and promote a positive self image.

Congratulations Bridget and keep up the amazing work as Miss Ohio Teen USA!

Barnett Ortho Gives Back: HELP us HELP Our Community

While "creating" smiles is a daily occurrence at Akron's Barnett Orthodontics, this month we hope to be creating smiles of a different sort, on the faces of those a little less fortunate.

In the month of October, our team will be volunteering at a local food shelter, the Akron-Canton Regional Food Bank. We will be helping with the organizing and packaging of their food donations. The food bank helps to feed people and fight hunger by providing food and other essential products to food pantries, hot meal sites, shelters and other hunger-relief programs. We are certain it will make a lot of people smile!

Considering the fact that we have the opportunity to work with almost a thousand area patients, we will be collecting food items for donations to the food bank.

We would LOVE your help!

Please bring in a non-perishable food item to assist us in our efforts. The items most needed are:
  • boxed cereal
  • peanut butter
  • canned tuna
  • canned vegetables
  • canned stew
  • canned soups
WIN $50.00

Everyone who brings in a food donation will be entered into a drawing for a $20.00 gift card to Summit Mall.

The person who brings in the most food items will win a $30.00 gift card to Summit Mall.

We look forward to working with our patients in giving back to our community. We greatly appreciate your support!
