Holiday News, 2009

To conclude 2009, we'd like to thank you, our patients and the community, for another fun-filled year at the office! For 2010, Dr. Bui and Team would like to focus on getting our patients involved. Now that you have (or are well on the way to) a beautiful new smile, why not show it off by telling your friends and family?

A Note from Dr. Bui

While this year has been a difficult economic one for countless people, it makes us appreciate the things we have even more. We feel blessed for friends, family and patients that have enriched our lives. We are also making strides to give back to our community through our annual events, such as the food drive and candy buy back. Ask Our Team about what's currently going on in our office...
  • Holiday Canned Food Drive
  • "Share A Smile" Patient Referral Incentive

WHAT'S NEW?

  • Waiting room television— Earlier this year we added a TV in our waiting to  display useful information and videos about our office!
  • Bulletin board— Look for the new bulletin board in our treatment area to see photos of other patients like you!
  • Facebook Fan Page— Are you on Facebook? Click here and become a fan of our office!
  • Website Additions— Check our website for braces-friendly recipes and articles!

OUR TEAM

  • Stephanie Vu has been with us from the start. In addition to working in the office with us, she designs and maintains our website. Stephanie's artistic skills and many talents make her an invaluable asset!
  • Bhavna Patel joined us in beginning of the year and has brought the same warmth and hospitality from the front desk of her parent's hotel to the front desk of our office.
  • Chris Nguyen is our hard-working intern. He came to us looking for experience in an orthodontics office and we're glad to have him!

WHERE ARE THEY NOW?

  • Anuja was accepted to Loma Linda for graduate school this past Fall. She is currently pursuing a master’s degree in public health. We enjoyed her time in the office and wish her good luck and a great education!

Year in Rewind

Holiday Canned Food Drive

During the holidays, our office continues to think of individuals and families around the community that are less fortunate by hosting an annual food drive. Through November and December, patients are encouraged to bring in canned food and other "most needed food items" to their regular appointments. These items are to benefit the Orange County Food Bank who works hard to distribute 15 million pounds of food annually to the homeless, disabled persons, seniors on fixed incomes, the unemployed and the working poor. We appreciate all of your donations for the food drive; thank you for supporting our community!

Halloween Candy Buy-back Program

To conclude the National Orthodontic Health Month of October, we put together our annual Halloween Candy Buy-back Program. This year our office collected over 100 pounds of candy from patients and members of the community in exchange for money. The candy went to military troops overseas through Operation Gratitude and an equal monetary donation was donated to the Orange County Humane Society. To see an article in the Fountain Valley View about our most successful event this year, click here. Please spread the word in our community about this event so its success can grow with each coming year.

Annual Summer Ice Cream Social

July may be National Ice Cream Month but children and adults alike don't need a reason to enjoy ice cream. Having a scoop or two on a hot summer day can't be beat, however, and getting it for free is like the cherry on top! On July 10th, our office hosted an ice cream social in appreciation of our patients, their friends and family as well as people in the community. Dr. Bui will continue to make this an annual event as part of a wider effort to bring the community together for simple and delicious pleasures.

ADA, CDA, OCDS

Dr. Bui is a tripartite member of the following dental associations: American Dental Association (ADA), California Dental Association (CDA), and the Orange County Dental Society (OCDS). As a part of the membership committee, Dr. Bui helps organize mixers for dentists in order to foster comraderie among her peers. During this year's CDA convention, she also helped host local and visiting dentists at the hospitality suite.

Teaching at USC

Dr. Bui has been a clinical instructor at USC Dental School since 2007. She enjoys teaching dental students how to diagnose and treat orthodontic problems.

American Association of Orthodontists (AAO) Convention in Boston

This year, the AAO's annual conference, was held in Boston. It is the largest meeting for orthodontists worldwide. Dr. Bui attends these conferences every year to stay abreast on the most current techniques and technologies in orthodontics. Dr. Bui was also glad for the opportunity to reunite with colleagues and professors from Harvard and UNC.

Warner Middle School

Dr. Bui was invited to Warner Middle School in February during National Children's Dental Health Month to give a presentation on oral hygiene. It was great to see some of our patients in the audience!
