Rosa Parks &
Martin Luther King, Jr.

Rosa Parks Day is coming up on February 4 and unlike some of the other holiday pages that you may find up on the King Orthodontics website this holiday does not result in the closure of our offices.

Rosa Parks day is an observance of an event that occurred on December 1, 1955 when Rosa Parks, an African-American seamstress refused to move from her seat for a white male on a Montgomery Alabama bus. This single act spawned a large-scale protest which resulted in a number of civil rights activists including Martin Luther King Jr. converging on Montgomery to organize a boycott of the Montgomery bus system. Rosa Parks would eventually go down as one of the great heroes for overcoming racial segregation and this case in Montgomery Alabama would eventually result in the segregation law being lifted as it was an unconstitutional practice.

Our staff on Rosa Parks day:

Our staff will be taking time to remember this amazing historical event and this amazing woman who managed to change life as we know it in the United States. Our staff is extremely multicultural and the neighborhoods that surround our offices are multicultural as well. It’s important that we take some time to really appreciate all that Rosa Parks and her like-minded civil rights activists were able to do for our country and our people on this day.

What to consider during this day:

We understand that a number of local schools and community centers are organizing events, dinners and community outreach on February 4 this year. For patients that are still undergoing orthodontic treatment it’s very important that they treat this holiday as they would any other day during the treatment process. Try to avoid any damage to orthodontic appliances by sticking to your dietary plan and avoiding various activities that could damage the appliance as well. Make sure to keep up with regular cleaning and care as you regularly would as deviating from your treatment plan could set your progress back and lead to you wearing your orthodontic appliance for a longer period of time.

If you have any concerns or require an appointment please feel free to contact us at any time including on Rosa Parks day as we will be open. King Orthodontics is available to answer any of your questions or provide you with a free consultation if you would like to start your orthodontic treatment today.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day with King Orthodontics

Martin Luther King, Jr.Martin Luther King Jr. Day is coming up on January 20th and we wanted to announce that our offices will stay open along with many other businesses over the long weekend.

Our staff is going to take some time to remember a great man Martin Luther King Jr. The community that surrounds our office is very important to us and it is a multicultural one, as our offices and staff. Without the civil rights movement our community would not be the way it is today and our office would certainly not be the same place without it either. For this reason we feel that it’s important to recognize the amazing accomplishments that Martin Luther King Jr. brought to the civil rights movement. With his sacrifices and tenacity the world was able to change.

Our staff will be taking this time to reflect and give back to the community in which we have grown over these years . We all plan on taking some time out during the weekend to give to a charitable organization in the area and to benefit fellow members of our community.

What you can do in the event of an emergency:

If you experience any issues with your orthodontic appliance or have an accident over the weekend please feel free to call into our office so that we can make the earliest available appointment following the weekend. We are always available to take your calls and our voice mail and messages will continue to take any emergency concerns over the holiday. We can get you in as soon as possible after the weekend has concluded but we also have a number of excellent tutorials and FAQs that you can follow to make yourself comfortable or to prevent damage until then.

On our website you can find some great tips on what to do in the event of an emergency situation and how you can adjust your orthodontic appliances for comfort. Robert keep all of your orthodontic appliances if they fall off or are damaged for your appointment visit.

Keeping up with your treatment:

Remember that this holiday is no different from any other day for your orthodontic treatment. Stick to your diet plan, know the foods to avoid and consult our FAQs for care requirements during orthodontic treatment.

We hope that you have a nice holiday weekend and that you can take some time to reflect on this great man. If you do need to set up an appointment please contact King Orthodontics at any point before or after the holiday weekend on January 20.
