The American Association of Orthodontists has done it again! See what happened today:
The American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) is teaming up with celebrity mom and 90210-star Jennie Garth to highlight the latest in back-to-school fashion and orthodontic treatment. On Thursday, August 5, Garth hosted the AAO Style ‘N Smile Fashion show, an exclusive event in the heart of New York City, where healthy, confident smiles are the must-have accessories of the season.
“As the mother of three children – one of whom has just had her braces taken off – and an actress, I know how important a beautiful smile can be,” said Garth. “A healthy, beautiful smile, and the confidence that goes with it, is something that never goes out of style.”
At the show, celebrity-stylist Melis Kuris will style the looks of more than a dozen local orthodontic patients who will model the latest in affordable teen fashion. Local AAO orthodontists will be on hand to make sure each model’s smile is runway ready. Garth, who will serve as the show’s emcee, also will announce a $10,000 donation to the Boys & Girls Club of America. The donation will be used to fund programs that will help to boost self esteem among New York City area students. Beyond the runway, the Style ‘N Smile program extends online at http://www.braces.org/stylensmile/ with fashion tips and orthodontic information for both students and adults alike.
