Educators, a police officer and medical professionals are just some of the people who will trade in their day jobs for dancing shoes at the sixth annual Dancing with The ARK’s Stars on March 12 at Pinewood Preparatory School.
The premier fundraiser for The ARK, this event features a dynamic cast of local celebrities paired with professional dancers.

Proceeds benefit the many programs of The ARK as it provides essential services for families dealing with Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia.

Serving five counties, The ARK offers respite care, support groups, caregiver consultation, education, resource referrals, community learning programs and rural services development.

The 2016 celebrity dancers are:

• Jimmy Bateman, Summerville Police Department

• Gary Brewer, Banks Construction

• Nancy Deitch, Rollings Middle School of the Arts

• Mary Early, Early Family Foundation

• Wakesha Evans, Hope Clinic

• Matthew Orosz, Hearing Care of Summerville

• Greer Reagin, Reagin Orthodontics

• Pren Woods, Alston Middle School

Each dancer is paired with a professional dance partner from Elite Dance International Studio in Mount Pleasant. Couples will perform at the event for a chance to win one of two titles: the Judge’s Award or the People’s Choice Award voted on by the audience.

Similar to the hit TV show “Dancing with the Stars,” four couples will dance in each round, with the two couples receiving the most judges’ votes competing in a “dance off” to win the Mirror Ball trophy.

The couple receiving the most votes by dollars wins the People’s Choice trophy. Votes are $10 each, and can be cast in advance at TheARKofSC.org or at the event.

This year’s judges are Rodney Profit, 2015 winner of the Judge’s Award; Kenny Walker, 2015 People’s Choice Award winner; and professional performers Brad and Jennifer Moranz of Moranz Entertainment.

This year’s Mirror Ball Sponsor is Dorchester County Probate Judge Mary Blunt. Serving as the master of ceremonies is Steve Mandell, head of school at Pinewood Preparatory School.

Dancing with The ARK’s Stars is at 7 p.m. Saturday, March 12 at in the Eidson Gym at Pinewood Preparatory School, 1114 Orangeburg Road. Tickets are $50 in advance and $60 at the door.

Purchase tickets online at TheARKofSC.org or call 843-832-2357 for information.

What is expected of me during my Orthodontic Treatment?

We hear this question a lot at Reagin Orthodontics, and we don’t mind when patients who are eager to complete their orthodontic treatment ask us. After all, we know there is no better feeling than getting your braces off!

During your initial consultation with Dr. Reagin, he will map out a specific treatment for you and will do his best to give you a timeline of when we expect you to wrap up treatment.

Having said that, we know every patient is different. People have different biological responses to orthodontic treatment and some people’s teeth may move faster than others.

Luckily, there are things you can do to ensure your treatment wraps up in a timely manner. By following these suggestions, you can avoid any setbacks during your treatment.

  • Make sure to keep your adjustment appointments. Postponing or cancelling will delay treatment!
  • Be sure to show up on time to your appointments. This will give Dr. Reagin and our team time to do everything we planned during your adjustment visit.
  • When prescribed, make sure you are diligent about wearing rubber bands or other appliances.
  • Avoid damage to your braces and teeth by wearing a mouth guard during sports activities.
  • Make sure to brush and floss regularly! Gum disease or other dental work can delay orthodontic treatment.

If you remember to follow these guidelines, you’ll be on your way to having the dazzling, healthy smile you’ve always wanted. As for us, our team at Reagin Orthodontics will do our part to move your orthodontic treatment along efficiently. If you have any questions about your treatment time, please give us a call at our office or ask us during your next visit!

What is a Water Flosser?

At Reagin Orthodontics we are all about good oral health! Daily brushing and flossing of your teeth as well as maintaining your 6 month visits to your dentist is the cornerstone of good oral health.

One of the most important areas of your mouth to clean is in-between your teeth and around the tooth/gum junction. These are the first places bacterial plaque will form, and it is also the hardest to keep clean.  Water flossers, like Waterpik™, are a good tool to clean between the teeth and around orthodontic appliances.

At Reagin Orthodontics we really like the use of water flossers. Here is what we have found:

Waterpik™ makes several types of water flossers including some just for kids. Personally, we like the countertop Waterpik™ Ultra Water Flosser, since it holds a good amount of liquid and patients find they have more control over the water pressure than the cordless Waterpik™. The Ultra Water Flosser runs about $60, but if you live by a Costco you can get both the Ultra Water Flosser and the Cordless Plus Water Flosser for only $79.

Water flossers typically come with several attachments and you can try them all out if you like, but the Classic Jet Tip works best. If you have braces the Plaque Seeker and Orthodontic Tips can help you clean around the brackets.

 

What to expect at your Initial Orthodontic Consultation

Consult

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

When you meet an orthodontist for an initial consultation, we strongly recommend consideration of the following:

– What is the practices philosophy? Make sure it lines up with what you are looking for.

– What is the orthodontist’s level of experience and how long have they been practicing?

– Does the practice have multiple offices forcing you to go to different office locations for your appointments?

– Is the orthodontic practice conveniently located close to your home, office or child’s school?

– Ask to see before-and-after photos of previous patients. Are the results to your liking?

– How varied and advanced are the treatments offered? Revolutionary new technologies such as temporary mini-screws, translucent aligner scanning (such as Invisalign and Invisalign Teen) and self-ligating brackets.

– Is the orthodontist familiar with the different cutting edge accelerated treatment options such as AcceleDent, Propel, and Wilckodontics?

– What is the orthodontist’s diagnosis and plan of action for your teeth and how clearly has it been explained to you? Did the orthodontist provide information about alternatives? How practical is the treatment plan in light of your personal, business and social needs?

– What is the office ambiance like? Specifically, are you (or your child) comfortable with the orthodontist’s chair-side manner? Is the staff friendly, welcoming and quick to address your concerns? Since orthodontic treatment takes an average of two years, with appointments typically every six to eight weeks, it is important to establish a rapport with all of those who will be providing services.

– Emergencies are unlikely, but just in case, what is the office protocol?

– What are the financing options? Are their multifamily discounts? Paid in full discounts?

– Does the fee for treatment include retainers and is there a “Lifetime Guarantee” offered? Make sure to ask.

– Does the practice focus on educating you (and/or your child) on the care of their braces and/or appliances?

At Reagin Orthodontics we believe that finding an orthodontist you trust is like forming any important relationship in your life. Do some research, get to know them, ask your friends and trust your instincts!
