New Year’s Resolution for a Healthy Smile - Orthodontist in Salt Lake City, Utah

What a year it’s been for us at Foothill Orthodontic Specialists! Dr. Chandler and Dr. Anderson have been overwhelmed by all the incredible transformations they have seen for patients in 2022, and we know there are many more to come in 2023! That’s what we love so much about what we do–every day we get to see patients’ lives transforming through healthier smiles. 

Is 2023 the year for your to get started on your own teeth transformation story? Maybe you’ve been thinking about it for years, but just weren’t sure how to get started? Or maybe you’ve been feeling a little overwhelmed by the possible expense or inconvenience to your life and schedule?  

We’ve Got You!

Thankfully Foothill Orthodontic Specialists are experts at caring for all of our patient’s needs, not just their teeth! We know how daunting orthodontic care might seem at first, but we promise that the benefits will far outweigh the challenges and you’ll be so glad you made a healthy smile your resolution for 2023. 

What Will a Transformed Smile Do For You?


Did you know that orthodontics isn’t only about making beautiful smiles, but also about optimizing your oral health? It’s true! Aligned teeth and healthy jaws and bite patterns can do so much to prevent negative health outcomes. 

Crooked teeth can trap food particles and bacteria in hard-to-reach places, making it difficult to  scrub away with a toothbrush or floss. This can lead to plaque buildup, tooth decay, or gum disease. And misaligned bites, also called malocclusions, can lead to jaw pain like TMJ, headaches, earaches, and more! 

It will be worth it to your long-term health to deal with misaligned teeth now to avoid more challenges down the road.


Boosting your confidence is no small feat, and is a worthy resolution, don’t you think? If you’ve been feeling self-conscious for years about your smile or holding yourself back from expressing joy and laughter in public, it’s definitely time to make a change. 

Shifting crooked teeth is one of the primary goals of orthodontic care, and with so many ways to do it, there is sure to be a great fit for your needs. Clear braces and Invisalign are especially appealing to adults who don’t want a mouth full of metal in professional and personal communication. You can talk to Dr. Chandler or Dr. Anderson about your options when you come in for your first visit!


We were never meant to get through the challenges of life alone, and that goes for orthodontic care, too! The entire staff at Foothill Orthodontic Specialists are experts at not just caring for your teeth, but supporting all of the ups and downs of your orthodontic journey! From maneuvering bills and payments, to advice on how to keep your teeth clean while in braces, you’ll find a friendly face and supportive words throughout your experience.
