At Bedford Orthodontics, we believe in giving back to the wonderful community in which we live in and work in. Community involvement is a priority for us, and we have a proud history of donating our time and resources to organizations that extend beyond orthodontic care. We care about our community and consider it a privilege to support local schools, sports teams and community events.
Dr. Barnard is available to visit local schools to educate students about orthodontics – it is one of the ways we give back to our community. During these school visits, Dr. Barnard can present information on a variety of topics in orthodontics in a fun and interactive format. Teachers and school administrators, please feel free to call our office to book a classroom presentation for your students.
We also offer office tours to elementary and junior high school students. While visiting our office, students learn about orthodontics, and oral hygiene with braces or other orthodontics appliances. We offer fun and interactive presentations during the office tours, and hands on demonstrations! Teachers and school administrators please do not hesitate to call our office and schedule an office field trip for your students.
Is your junior high or high school hosting a Career Day? Dr. Barnard is available to discuss what being an orthodontist is like and teach students, who may be interested in pursuing future careers in the field of orthodontics, what the job entails and what studies they need to pursue to become an orthodontist. Teachers and school administrators please do not hesitate to call our office and book our doctor for your career day.
Bedford Orthodontics frequently sponsors local sports teams and dance competitions that our patients are involved in. We support activities that get our patients moving and physically active. Please inquire at the office if your team is eligible for our sponsorship.
We are happy to sponsors community events. In fact, we are Gold Sponsors of Bedford Days! Have you checked out Bedford Days?
