Autumn at Christenson Family Orthodontics

4th Annual Food Drive

Is it time to go through yo

ur hurricane/emergency food stash?  Are some of the items nearing their expiration date (but not passed!)?  Don’t let that food go to waste!  Please help Christenson Family Orthodontics fill four boxes of non-perishable foods to donate to our local Food Bank.  Last year our generous patients donated enough food to fill three boxes.  So let’s do more this year!  Bring your donations to your next orthodontic appointment or just drop them off any day.  Every patient who donates will receive a stamp on their rewards card!  See the donation recommendations from the Food Bank:

The Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore has donated over 350 million meals in its 40 years of operation.  The need is even greater now.  Closures and job losses resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic has increased food insecurity in Hampton Roads by 33% among individuals and 47% among children.  Let’s do our part to help those in need.

Patient Rewards Helping Local Businesses

We have re-vamped the patient rewards program at Christenson Family Orthodontics.  Along with offering movie tickets, we are excited to now offering gift certificates to local businesses!  Right now we are offering gift certificates to: Battlegrounds Coffehouse & Grill, Mister Jim’s, and Nothing Bundt Cake.  The selection may vary as we introduce new options.

  1. Be a great patient!  Take care of your braces/trays/appliances.  Brush your teeth.  Show up to all your scheduled appointments.
  2. Leave us a Google or Facebook review
  3. Join us on social media.  Follow our page and share posts.
