In my profession I see all sorts of interesting details on a daily basis, and not much shocks me. However, last week, I was caught a bit off guard, and experienced a professional “WOW” moment! Carter Grice, one of my 7th grade patients, came in for a routine preventative appointment, and like most teenagers, he has braces. He has always had a beautiful smile, and does an exceptional job with his oral hygiene. So, when I entered the hygiene room to do my routine exam, his PINK smile was not what I expected to see. In fact, I was immediately blinded by his PINK orthodontic bands!
I was astonished! So naturally, I asked why he chose PINK orthodontic bands, and he quickly responded, “It’s for Breast Cancer. I was inspired by my coach, Scott Bell, whose wife has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer, and a family friend, who has also suffered from breast cancer.” It was then, that I experienced my “WOW” moment. I thought to myself, how cool is that? How awesome that Carter, a 7th grade young man, took the step, or better yet leap of faith, to support a cause so huge! Through such a simple act, he became an instant PINK billboard for breast cancer; it was brilliant! My hat goes off to him and any young person who is out there making themselves an advocate! “WOW!”
