• Orthodontics Patients List What They Are Grateful For

  • Over 1.2 billion people – 20% of the world’s population – are still without access to electricity worldwide, almost all of whom live in developing countries. This includes about 550 million in Africa, and over 400 million in India. Access to electricity must be environmentally and socially sustainable.

    About 2.8 billion people use solid fuels—wood, charcoal, coal and dung—for cooking and heating. Every year fumes and smoke from open cooking fires kill approximately 1.5 million people mostly women and children, from emphysema and other respiratory diseases.

    These statistics come from the World Bank. 

    When we read statistics like this, it is hard to feel sorry for ourselves. As residents of the Vancouver, Battle Ground area, we have so many incredible blessings.

    As an orthodontics practice that works in Battle Ground and two Vancouver locations–Salmon Creek and Cascade Park–we are incredibly grateful for our patients and all those parents and other family members we get to know.

    Have a great holiday season.

    We asked our patients what they were thankful for and these are some of the really great answers.
