Ortho patients smile like crocodiles

Share Canberra's trusted news:

EVERY Tuesday is fun day at Supersmiles Orthodontics in Civic.

“Who said that fun and work were mutually exclusive?” says Alana Hyde from Supersmiles. “Have we unknowingly incorporated the quote used in exercise “no pain, no gain” to the workplace? Is work meant to be stifling and boring? Let’s hope not.”

With this in mind, the practice holds regular fun days and fancy dress days. Staff have been known to work in wigs, crazy socks, anything fun really.

“It just makes it fun and exciting for both the staff and the patients,” Alana says.

Yesterday was a Jungle Hangout with visitors from The National Zoo and Aquarium joining in.

“Our connections are past and present patients wanting to help and join the excitement,” she says.

“The Supersmile team’s purpose is to excel in care of our patients, to enrich the lives of our staff and to work with compassion and fun in a stress free empowering way.

“An average orthodontic treatment can be between 15 to 20 months. The team get to know the families really well throughout the treatments.

“We hope it makes you smile, it’s a happy place for everyone.”
