February is National Children's Dental Health Month.


This month-long national health observance brings together thousands of dedicated dental professionals, healthcare providers, and educators to promote the benefits of good oral health to children, their caregivers, teachers and many others.





Drinking fluoridated tap water is an easy way that we can help prevent tooth decay. The fluoride in the tap water strengthens your tooth enamel to protect against the formation of cavities. Try to choose tap water over other beverages that contain sugar and acid which contribute to tooth decay.

We are all excited to be starting the new year and looking forward to all that it will bring.  Dr. Salaita is expecting her baby in February and we can't wait!  She has decided to make it a surprise for everyone, including herself, as to what the gender is. We are having a contest for patients to guess if it is a he or a she!! Take a look and tell us what you think......

As the Thanksgiving holiday approaches, we have been reflecting on what we are THANKFUL for.

Check out our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/smilesbyemrich/ to see our WEEK of GRATITUDE photos. The staff expressed their appreciation for all the love and support they receive from their families. Dr. Salaita is thankful to be a part of the Westerville community and for all her patients who make her job rewarding and fun. And Dr. Emrich wanted to give thanks to everyone who make up our team who he considers his office family and a blessing!


From all of us at Emrich Orthodontics, we hope you and your family enjoy this Thanksgiving holiday!

We've been celebrating all month long by reminding our patients how to have a BRACE-SAFE Halloween! Remember to avoid sticky, chewy treats and hard candies that can cause brackets to pop off or wires to bend. Enjoy soft chocolates and remember to brush & floss afterwards!


We participated in a Trunk-or-Treat event, transforming one of the assistant's cars into a mouth! Last year we turned the office into a PacMan maze and this year we will be traveling to a galaxy far, far away for a Star Wars filled day! - May the Force be with you!!!

A fun, caring work environment translates to happy patients who love coming into the office!
