The holiday season is upon us, and along with it, (occasionally) cooler weather and a cornucopia of colors in the trees. It’s a time of joyous celebration, merry family reunions, and of course, the giving and receiving of gifts.
But before you finish shopping for your little ones—a mind boggling task requiring a year-long memory to ensure all wishes are fulfilled—we have a suggestion. We understand that there are very few things in life that compete with watching your kiddo tear open the gift they’ve been begging for since February. But we think there might be one rival to consider that has undeniable long-term value: a confident smile.
You may be wondering how orthodontic treatment for your child could be considered a gift, so allow us to explain.
Braces as a gift?
We’ll admit, braces aren’t the most traditional gift. And with fierce competition like that to-die-for jacket, or the latest tech, braces probably won’t result in the immediate joy mentioned above. But that’s just it. While fashions fade and last-year’s tech gets replaced, some gifts are lasting. In fact, there’s one gift that is truly timeless—a beautiful smile! It’s one of the most rewarding long-term gifts your child will receive during their lifetime.
Think about it like this: as a parent, what’s more valuable, the fleeting joy on their face as they tear into a gift, or the smile they use to express that joy? If you were to ask the grown-up version of your child that same question, which one would they choose? Outside of a puppy, or the proverbial pony, we’d be willing to bet that the answer to both would be ‘the smile’.
What makes a gift a gift?
While there are many variations across cultures and customs, there’s one thing a gift always has in common regardless of what, when, or where: a true gift must have value. It’s value, not money or size or any other factor that makes a gift a gift. And with very few things being valued as much as a beautiful smile, now you understand why we believe orthodontic treatment could be such a great gift.
From the incalculable factors like self-confidence and first impressions, to the calculable factors like higher salaries and hiring rates, the value of a straight smile is practically priceless. For the same reasons, a straight smile is a very worthwhile investment. To hear more on that, read our short post on The Financial Benefits of Getting Braces.
Where Do We Go From Here…
At Birmingham Orthodontics, it’s our mission to make smiles affordable to anyone. How? It all starts with your first visit, where we’ll determine what your child’s treatment plan would look like, including financial options. Coupled with discounts like our Youth Savings Program, Multi-Family Discount, and a yule time budgeting, your child could be getting a gift this holiday that has no equal – a brand new smile! It’s a gift that starts at $125 a month. (link to landing page if/when there is one for this sales effort.)
The bottom line is, we cannot realistically think of a single gift greater than a new smile. Though it may require a few penny’s to be pinched over the holidays, just think of it like this: their new smile from Birmingham Orthodontics will be the same smile they’ll be using for many holidays yet to come. So, if you’re ready to give the gift of a straight smile, simply choose from one of our four convenient locations in Trussville, Alabaster, Hoover or Greystone and schedule your free consultation with us today!
