Kids Club

Did you know: The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that children receive screenings at age seven. That may seem early, but since permanent teeth start to make appearances around that age, it’s an appropraite time to check for any orthodontic problems while development is still in the early stages. Sometimes, interceptive treatment (also known as “Phase 1”) is advised. More about that here. Often, Dr. White keeps an eye on things over time and offers expert recommendations if future treatment is advised, like what the treatment plan entails and when is the ideal time to start.


If your child is between the ages of 7-10 and you’re coming in for the first time, you can expect the All Star treatment! We want this to be the most-fun doctor’s appointment your child has ever experienced, and of course we aim to impress you as well!


Playing on Dr. White’s former NFL career, the White Ortho All Stars is a kids club for young ones who come in for observation appointments…they’re getting ready to get their GAME ON and practice-practice-practice until it’s time to start. We hook them up with custom Nike dri-fit shirts and rookie cards to track stats like height, weight, shoe size, and grip strength. It takes just a few minutes–but we have seen grip strength battles break out between parents and their kids…and those are moments that will LAST (just sayin’)! At each visit, kids can also earn buttons for their lanyards–we did our best to connect football and ortho in a fun way. All in all, we hope it makes you all smile.

ALL STAR

An all-star is a member of an all-star team. An all-star is an outstanding, highly-regarded performer on a team of star performers.
Welcome to the White Ortho All-Stars!

TRUE FRESHMAN

A true freshman is a college athlete who competes in games beginning in his or her freshman academic year. Competitively, true freshmen are rare and draw a lot of attention from the fans and the media.
You may be young, but you’ve got what it takes. Keep working hard!

ALLIGATOR ARMS

This term describes a receiver who keeps his arms close to his body when anticipating a tackle or hit from a defensive player. He may miss the catch. With his arms close to his body, the player’s arms appear to be too short for his body and resemble those of an alligator.

Hey, sometimes the timing just isn’t right…but it’s still good to be ready.

BOMB

A bomb is a long, high-arcing pass in a football game. For example: Manning throws a long bomb to White down the right side of the field and he catches the ball, running it in for an 80-yard touchdown.

This bomb is super cool. You are also super cool. You are the bomb.

GO FOR IT

It’s a common phrase used in football when the team decides to try to get the remaining yardage in hopes of gaining an advantage over their opponent.

When you’re THAT close, you don’t let anything hold you back.

SLOBBERKNOCKER

This is an intense game with rough play throughout, or a powerful collision between two players. Spit (or slobber) may fly as a result of such a hard hit.

Sometimes the road is a little bumpy (think: molars stubbornly erupting or impacted canines). Hang tight. As they say, Guts bring glory. Pain brings gain.

LONGSNAPPER

A long snapper plays center and is an expert in long, accurate snaps for punts and field goals. Because of the level of difficulty with this type of snap, this player comes in the game only for punt and field goal formations.

We’re all responsible for certain things. Work hard, be humble, stay curious.

DRAFTED

A draft is a process used to allocate certain players to sports teams. In a draft, teams take turns selecting from a pool of eligible players. Each team wants to be the best in the league.

Basically, White Ortho wants to have the best team around. We want YOU!
