Happy New Year!

I'm a bit intimidated by a blank calendar- a new year. By the end of a year I'm pretty comfortable with what is going on, but a new year seems like the great unknown.

Here's a couple of ideas for new year's resolutions for 2017:

1. I encourage you folks with braces to set a goal to keep your teeth and gums ultra clean! You will not regret it. Remember, we are trying to keep your mouth healthy and avoid decalcification (white marks on your teeth). 

2. Another goal should be to wear elastics 24 hours a day unless instructed to do nighttime only, etc. Elastics work based on consecutive hours of wear, not just cumulative hours. If you wear them just part time the progress will be much, much slower. I have seen elastics work many times! Those that wear them absolutely full time are pretty obvious. Progress is much faster!

Anyway, best of luck for 2017 in whatever you are working on!

Dr. Brian Baird

I grew up in Brigham City, where I first got the idea to become an orthodontist. I had braces as a senior in high school and liked what it did for my smile. That's where it all started. I understand what you are going through with braces, although I had bands around each tooth instead of the much trickier brackets that we use today. Our wires are a lot better these days, too, thank goodness.

I love spending time with my wife and these 3 crazy girls.

I love hiking, especially at Zion National Park. I'm a sports junkie. I especially like basketball. The Jazz about killed me when they went to the finals and lost, but I still like to follow them. My other big hobby is music, especially jazz. I'm best at saxophone, but I claim to play the piano and guitar. I'm interested in a bit of everything, I like to travel and see new things.

I hope you enjoy your time with us. Please ask questions. We'll try to make it as fun as we can!

You'll love your new smile!
