Let’s face it: Bullying can be an inevitable and terrible part of growing up. While we can focus on anti-bullying strategies, (and we should!) we also need to focus on our teen’s self confidence and well being. We know that often bullies are lashing out as bravado because they lack their own self-confidence and in turn they hurt the self confidence of their peers.
At Drobocky Orthodontics, we see our job as not only creating healthy, beautiful smiles for our tween and teen patients but also caring for their overall well-being. Our goal is to become an active part of our patients’ support system. By opening conversations with our patients and building relationships we are often able to root out problems and help them come up with strategies to overcome them.
We also have a secret weapon in our back-pocket when it comes to self-esteem: Invisalign Teen clear aligners. A recent study found that nearly half of teens report wearing Invisalign does/will boost their self-esteem. (After conversations with our adult patients, we think the findings would be similar.)
We know that our teens are super conscious of their image. Just note the number of selfies they take, and how much time they spend liking, commenting and sharing their friends’ photos on Snapchat, Facebook and Instagram. That’s why when teens come to us for orthodontic treatment, we want to be sure we have options for them, to ensure their confidence stays high while their smile improves.
Reducing the chance that your child will experience bullying allows us impact their lives not only throughout treatment but in the years to come.
Dr. Oles Drobocky leads a friendly, dedicated team that works together to create a positive experience for patients and their families. He is an Invisalign Gold Plus Provider and the leading orthodontist in terms of Invisalign Teen cases treated in South Central Kentucky.
