Join Us At The Health & Wellness Experience

  • March 14, 2016

This Saturday, we hope you will visit us at the 3rd Annual Health and Wellness Experience.

This year’s event will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, March 19, at the Mizner Park Amphitheater in downtown Boca Raton. This event is free and fun for the whole family. (You might learn a few things, too.)

Last year, more than 6,000 people attended this event, which featured more than 70 booths from health and wellness businesses and organizations serving our area.

Our team from the orthodontist office of Robert A. Eckelson, D.D.S., P.A. will be one of this year’s exhibitors.

Stop by our booth if you are one of our current patients, if you have questions about orthodontic care, or if you just want to say hi.

What To Expect

You should expect a day filled with fun and educational activities.

Florida Atlantic football coach Charlie Partridge is scheduled to be at the FAU Coach’s Corner exhibit from 11 to noon. You and your kids can try ladder, cone, and tackling drills. Challenge your friends in the Pop-A-Shot challenge, or see how you do in the soccer shootout.

The Kids Zone will allow your kids to test their own abilities. They can climb a wall. They can try their hand at throwing a football, and they can test their soccer skills.

Do you think you can text and drive safely? You can find out the real risks in the STIC driving simulator. STIC stands for Stop Texting In Traffic.

Throughout the day, visitors will have the chance to see a number of live demonstrations on the amphitheater stage. You can watch examples of yoga, dancing, cheerleading, and Zumba. You may even decide to give them a try.

Learn About Our Services

At our booth, we will be providing information about the many services we offer at our office. These include Invisalign and Invisalign Teen.

Invisalign was developed as an alternative to traditional orthodontic treatments. Invisalign uses clear plastic aligners instead of the brackets and wires that are used with braces.

Both braces and Invisalign are effective at moving your teeth. Many patients can use either option.

Nevertheless, Invisalign does provide some unique benefits when compared to braces.

For example, you don’t have to wear your aligners all the time. You can remove the aligners to eat and to brush and floss your teeth. You will need to wear the aligners a vast majority of the time during your treatment. You may find that short breaks to eat and care for your teeth can make the treatment a little easier, however.

Invisalign Teen is a unique product for younger orthodontic patients. This treatment can start even if your son or daughter is waiting for some permanent teeth to erupt.

For parents, Invisalign Teen has some special features to encourage proper compliance and to help you replace up to six aligners for free.

If you have questions about any of our services, we will be happy to provide the answers. In addition to orthodontics, we can treat TMJ disorders, help you (or someone you know) with snoring problems, and create custom-made athletic mouthguards for your family.

Commitment To Our Community

We opened our practice 40 years ago here in Boca Raton. We have remained focused on providing quality orthodontic care.

We also make an effort to stay active and involved in our community. Our participation and support in this year’s Health and Wellness Experience is just one example of that.

Our own Dr. Eckelson is a member of several local civic organizations. These include the Boca Forum, the Boca Raton Medical Arts Center, the Boca Roundtable, the Jaycees, and the Rotary Club of Boca Raton.

Dr. Eckelson also serves as a district advisor and a merit badge counselor for the Boy Scouts.

He remains active in the Angel Flight program as well. Angel Flight helps individuals who have special medical needs or who are victims of domestic abuse. Volunteers with this program also serve as first responders who provide assistance during natural disasters.

We Look Forward To Seeing You

We are hoping for good weather at this year’s event. We hope to see you there, too.

Oral health is an important part of your overall health. The 3rd Annual Health and Wellness Experience offers you and your family a great way to get ideas on how to live a healthier life.
