Braces Omaha’s Smiling with the Stars casting call has selected its first star! After reviewing the applications from local families in need of braces, we narrowed down the applicants and hosted a few callbacks. Then, we met as a team and selected Ava from Omaha. We surprised Ava with the announcement when she came to our office for what she thought was the next round in the casting call selection. She will soon begin her journey to a straighter, brighter smile.
In her application Ava said, “When I smile, I feel uncomfortable because of my teeth. The reason I need braces is because my teeth hurt and my top teeth are the ones that are crowded the most. Kids at my school make fun of me because my teeth are crooked. If I do get the braces, I would not be afraid to show my smile. I also would feel more confident to smile in pictures and to others around me. Also, when I get them taken off, I would be so happy and relieved that I have a good, straight set of teeth.”
Dr. Clarke Stevens and his team look forward to helping Ava achieve a straighter smile and gain more confidence.
