December Newsletter 2018
We’re just a few weeks away from the close of 2018. The year has flown by, but there’s still a little time left to highlight some great moments from the fourth quarter and share some important information with you about our business hours throughout December.
Thank you to everyone who came to help make our 2018 Fall Festival so amazing! We had a blast jumping back into the 80’s for the night and hope you all did, as well. We were able to give away (3) Oral B Electric Toothbrushes, a Fortnite gaming package, a super cool Drone, a bodacious pair of Beats and THREE Free Sets of Braces! A really great “feel good” moment of the night was when a younger boy found a lost wedding ring. The couple who had lost the ring were so incredibly grateful ~ what a great show of community and caring! Our patients are truly the BEST!
In addition to all the fun and good eats that took place during the night, our amazing patients collectively donated over 2500 articles of clothing and shoes plus some very valuable miscellaneous items! The Salvation Army was astonished by and so grateful for the amount of items collected. Please know that every item donated is a great help in their continuing ministry to help addicted men and women return to healthy, productive living. We cannot thank you enough for participating in our most successful donation drive ever ~ you truly give generosity a new meaning!
We have printed up the many pictures we took throughout the night which are now hanging in our Peoria office…feel free to find yours and take it home with you! We have also posted them on our Facebook page ~ if you weren’t able to make it this year, take a look at all the fun and plan on being here next year! Thank you again for a radically fun night!
The holidays are right around the corner, and that means we’ll all take a little time off to reconnect with friends and family. Over the next few weeks, we’ll observe select closures and limited hours. As you plan your year-end treatments and visits, please heed the following holiday schedule:
December 22 – January 1: CLOSED
January 2: REOPEN, normal hours
Our Chandler office will operate during limited hours on the following dates:
December 27: 7 a.m. – 5 p.m.
December 31: 7 a.m. – 2 p.m.
During our scheduled closures, you are still welcome to leave us messages via our office phone system. For any emergencies, we’ll respond as promptly as we can. However, for any non-urgent issues, we’ll return your calls when we reopen January 2.
If you have any questions or concerns about upcoming appointments affected by our holiday schedule, please don’t hesitate to contact the front desk.
Though Black Friday and Cyber Monday are behind us, many of you are still busy braving the big mall crowds to cross items off your shopping lists. Though gift giving is fun and heartwarming, we also understand that it adds up, and we want to help through our Holiday Season Quarterly Referral Contest.
For any patient referrals during the 4th Quarter, both you and your referral will be entered into a raffle to win a $500 Holiday Shopping Spree, valid at any participating retailer.
While you help us spread the word about our practice, we’ll help you spread a little extra holiday cheer!
But time is running out – the Contest runs through December 19. We’ll announce one Grand Prize Winner on December 20 – just in time to snag those last-minute gifts.
You’re welcome to enter the contest as many times as you like. We just ask that you meet at least one of the following criteria listed below:
For current E&S patients, refer a new patient who:
- Completes an E&S Orthodontics Complimentary Consultation (valid for 1 entry per referral)
- Begins an E&S Orthodontics Treatment Plan (valid for 2 entries per referral)
For new E&S patients:
- Attend a complimentary consultation with E&S Orthodontics before December 19th (valid for 1 entry)
- Be sure to notify the front desk about all of your referrals so that you can receive your raffle entries. And to further assist us in properly tracking all entries, please ask your referrals to mention your name when they schedule their consultations.

Our patients are the core of everything we do. We remain dedicated to providing you with the best possible orthodontic care in Phoenix, and our mission will continue in the New Year.
As you kick back and relax over the next few weeks, be sure to protect your smile with the following tips:
- Rinse with water and brush carefully after having sticky or sweet snacks.
- Stay hydrated to avoid drying out your mouth.
- Try not to overdo it with hard candies.
- Also limit your intake of heavy, starchy foods, which can get wedged in your teeth and cause plaque buildup.
- Have fun! Enjoy your meals – just keep up your brushing routine.
We can’t wait to see you again in 2019.
Wishing Happy Holidays to you, your family, and your friends.
Dr. O & Dr. Saavedra
