Vestal Orthodontist Bringing Smiles To Binghamton Youth
By Matt Paddock VESTAL, N.Y. – Muench Orthodontics of Vestal has helped bring smiles to the Binghamton Youth through the nonproﬁt “Smiles Change Lives”. Over the past three Dr. David Muench has donated over $300,000 in braces for kids. To qualify for the program, a child must be between the ages of 7-21, maintain good oral hygiene, not already be wearing braces, and have a moderate or severe need for braces along with meeting ﬁnancial guidelines. Muench says, ” Its been a fantastic experience for myself and my staﬀ we feel good we’ve been able to make a positive impact on a child”. The service that they provide is all inclusive meaning the children get a full set of braces, complete treatment, retainers and follow up treatments. “It’s kind of hard to describe but obviously its a great feeling and the reactions on the part of the patients, children, and parents can be sometimes overwhelming… its usually a very happy day when they come in and get their braces oﬀ and there’s a lot of smiling sometimes there’s some tears… it can sometimes get emotional but in a good way and so it’s a happy thing its a good thing and we’re just very honored to be able to do this for the community” said Muench.
