Advice from Lynn
I'm Lynn, the founder and owner of DentaKit.com. I had braces for three years as an adult (and I still wear my retainers at night). I've been involved in the dental industry for over 15 years. I know firsthand how confusing the entire process of braces (or aligners) and retainers can be.
That's why I've written a series of articles that can help guide you through the process. As time goes on, I'll be adding more articles. If you want to know more about me and about our company, see our About Us page and watch our video!
If you have an idea for an article or want to make a comment, email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
