(1078) Orthodontonomics


Teeth have appeared a couple of times at suburban-poverty.com of late.  Not just our editor’s either!  Today we have a piece from the CBC about the availability of free services from orthodontists available to children in socio-economic difficulty.  Now, it isn’t just about Little Timmy having to get that modelling quality smile via ten grand worth of ortho or he’ll end up a syphilitic serial killer.  No, orthodontics is genuinely health related, making this an interesting piece.
Orthodontists eager to work for free, now they just need teeth to fix. Smile4Canada has hundreds of volunteer orthodontists but only 16 applicants
