At Dental Health Orthodontics a beautiful smile is the side-effect of superior orthodontic treatment. Our orthodontists start the process with a free consultation to meet, assess, and discuss options that are best suited to each patient. The American Association of Orthodontists recommends an initial check-up with an orthodontist at the first sign of orthodontic problems or no later than 7 years old. While few children need treatment at this young age, early detection of certain orthodontic problems ensures treatment can be timed appropriately to a child’s growth and development.

Infant Swimming Resource goes beyond traditional swimming instruction, by teaching children aged 6 months to 6 years old ISR Self‐Rescue™ techniques designed to help them survive should they reach the water alone.
Infant Swimming Resource’s Self-Rescue™ swimming program is a 4-6 week course, scheduled 5 days per week, Monday through Friday, for 10 minutes each day.
With a focus on safe, customized, one-on-one lessons by certified Instructors, ISR’s survival swimming lessons emphasize health, ongoing program evaluations and parent education to deliver the most effective and safest results in the industry.
The ISR program is for children 6 months to 6 years of age.
Lessons for a 6-12 month old focus on teaching the child to roll onto their back to float, rest and breathe, and to be able to maintain this life-saving position until help arrives.
Lessons for children 1-6 years old focus on teaching the swim-float-swim survival sequence. Children learn to swim with their head down; roll onto their back to float, rest, and breathe; and roll back over to resume swimming until they reach the side of the pool, where they can either crawl out or until they can be rescued.
Statics indicate that 86% of children who fall into water are fully clothed. Therefore, once the children are fully skilled they will practice their ISR skills fully clothed.
