We turned 5! What exactly does a birthday mean to us at The Brace Space? Autumn of 2013 saw us opening our doors for the very first time. Before The Brace Space was born, Dr. Dan Stuart, was practicing as an Orthodontist in Dartmouth. A few years later as his practice grew, he asked Dr. Sarah Davidson to join him to create the Stuart Davidson practice. It was not long before many people saw the capabilities of this team and urged them to create an orthodontic office in the Larry Uteck area. As a result, this dynamic duo, together with another colleague, Dr. Ric Bezanson, originally from New Brunswick and then from his Fall River Clinic put their heads together. They found the perfect location, paid attention to detail as they walked the local builders through their vision for their clinic, recruited the best group of professionals to become part of the orthodontic team, and with that foundation, a star was born: a centrally located Bedford Orthodontic office, where we transform lives one smile at a time. With all the phones, selfies and photos that people now take, it is more important than ever to feel free to smile. For our patients ages 5-85 not only does the smile change, but also their confidence, their self appreciation, the longevity of their teeth and their self image. Together with the tremendous support of our patient families, the highly trained dentists in our community also played a large part in the success of the Brace Space. Because our Orthodontists live and raise their children in our Bedford and Halifax communities we are at the grass roots level. Because the community is helping us, we are committed to supporting our community. Whenever we can, we support individuals, schools, teams and community events. We have also created an annual fundraiser, where we partner with other businesses to raise money for local charities. In this manner we have been able to donate to Phoenix House, Make a Wish and Kids Help Phone. It helps us satisfy our healthy body, healthy mind, healthy community mindset. You know the old adage, it takes a village to raise a child. Thank you to each and everyone of you for the support and trust you have put in us. You have come from far and wide to see us, from Toronto to Yarmouth to Mexico (yes, we have a patient coming from Mexico!), and all places in between. Many say to us that even though the time of being in braces or Invisalign seems long at the outset, when the treatment is over, our patients say that they will miss coming in to see us. You have become part of our ever growing family who we would love to share a visit with, any time you care to drop by. Until we see you, here’s to the next 5 years of beautiful smiles!
