1. We're a Family Owned Business
Our business was founded in late 2001, when the owner of the company -- Lynn S., a
mother of two young kids -- got braces in her early 40s. Very quickly she
realized the challenges faced by adults and kids in braces, and created the
DentaKit Braces Survival Kit. Our company has grown a lot since then, but it
continues to be family-run. We're proud to have taught our kids a little
something about entrepreneurship along the way. In fact, our college-bound
oldest daughter just started her own photography business!
2. We Are Braces and Retainer Users
As people who have worn braces and retainers, we know what you're going through.
We know what works and what falls short. All of the products we sell are
thoroughly evaluated before we offer them to you. We never sell products which
we think are shoddy or will cause problems. And if you're not happy with
something you bought, we'll work with you to get it right.
3. Fast Shipping
We work with a professional warehouse, and our orders ship the next business
day. In most cases, you'll receive your order within 5 to 7 business days, but
many times it's even faster than that. Even better? All orders over $69 shipping
to the 50 US states and territories can get free shipping with coupon code
FreeShip69, which you can enter on the Shipping checkout page. That goes for
APOs and FPOs, too.

challenges. We're always on the lookout for innovative products to help make
your orthodontic experience easier and more pleasant.

8. Metal Mouth Message Board Online Community
We are the proud founders of
ArchWired.com's Metal Mouth Message Board
. ArchWired.com is our "sister"
website, and is also run by our family. It's a great place to commiserate with
other braces wearers, to ask a question, and get the latest information.
9. We Support Charities
DentaKit.com "gives back" by supporting Smiles Change Lives and The Smile Train.
In the past we have also given disaster relief donations to Doctors Without
Borders and the Red Cross. In addition, our family personally supports
entrepreneurship in the third world through Kiva.org, and fundraising for
education in our local community.
10. We Don't Bother You or Bombard You
We hate spam and junk email as much as you do (maybe more!) A few times
per year we send out an email announcing a special sale. That's it. You won't be
continually bombarded with emails from us, the way you are from other companies.
We'll only contact you when we have something really important or fantastic to
convey. And if you ask to be taken off our mailing list, we'll really take you
off, no questions asked.
