Mouthful of Science

Team Pitts has had the priveledge to educate many students over the last few months. Mouthful of Science has brought many students into our office for a time of learning and fun.  While at Pitts Orthodontics, students rotate through six science stations in the clinical laboratory, operatory and radiographic areas of the clinic.  In each area, Pitts Orthodontic staff and doctors provide interactive opportunities for the students to learn about science.  Each station is designed to meet WCSD educational standards for science. Meeting each student and working hands on with the students has been a very fun experience for our team. Our team has enjoyed meeting teachers and chaparones from many schools all who make this educational

oppurtunity come to life.

Pitts orthodontics is proud to be a Damon user.

Damon Braces is proud to announce our newest ambassador,
Damon patient Bethany Hamilton.

There are not many people who don’t know about Bethany and her amazing story after an unspeakable shark attack. Just a young teen in 2003 when attacked, Bethany has gone on to inspire millions due to her amazing determination and attitude. She shares her astonishing story in her bestselling autobiography Soul Surfer which in April 2011 was released as a major motion picture. Not only does Bethany continue to compete in the ASP World Professional Surfing Tour, but she tours the world to share her story of triumph and to prove that with faith and belief anything is possible.

After being treated with Damon Braces I couldn’t be happier. The results of having braces not only improved my smile, it boosted my confidence.

After the shark attack Bethany will tell you she struggled through many trials and tribulations which took a toll on her confidence and self esteem. When asked, Bethany will tell you that “after being treated with Damon Braces I couldn’t be happier. The results of having braces not only improved my smile, it boosted my confidence.” Now, with help from Damon System braces, Bethany is able to smile through adversity.

If you are interested in improving your smile and outlook on life, take a tour through our website and ask your orthodontist about Damon System braces. If you don’t have an orthodontist, that’s ok, check out our Damon Doctor Locator you will be able to find one in your area.

Dr Tom Pitts teaches in spain

Dr Tom Pitts was recently in Spain teaching a group of orthodontist. Below is the email from Dr Paco Perdron

We are very honored that Tom Pitts had given a course in my office. It was great. The best orthodontists of Spain assisted and even an orthodontist came from Holland.

We learnt a lot with Tom “pata negra orthodontics” (translation “the best of the best in orthodontics”) and we realised that we have to continue learning a lot to reach his level. His teachings are always more than welcome to us.

All the participants have been sending mails of agreement for the quality of the course and Tom´s personality.

I will be always very grateful with Tom and all the members of the group.

Love to all,
