What is the Guppy Grinz Club?

Our Guppy Grinz Club is part of the evolution of our Growth and Guidance program. If a patient is not yet ready for orthodontic treatment, he or she gets enrolled in this program and is ;monitored on a six- to 12-month basis.

This allows us to educate our young patients about proper oral hygiene and monitor their dental development, and it involves the youngster in our practice through various activities and events that provide an opportunity for all members of our team to build a positive relationship with each child.

How do I know if my child is eligible?

While there is no exact age for children to begin orthodontic treatment, the American Association of Orthodontists recommends a visit to an orthodontist around age seven. By this age, most children have a mix of baby teeth and adult teeth, which makes it easier for the orthodontist to diagnose and correct tooth and jaw problems sooner and without surgery.

At your son or daughter’s first consultation appointment, pictures and a panoramic X-ray are taken of your child’s mouth, along with a thorough evaluation performed by Dr. Sanborn. Most of our younger patients (ages six to ten) are entered into our Guppy Grinz Club at this time.

What are the fees involved with the Guppy Grinz Club?

These visits are a courtesy to our families and are provided at no charge. Any necessary photos or X-rays needed in our office, or future checkup visits with us, are also done as a courtesy service to you until a point in time when necessary treatment is determined.

Why do I want to be a Guppy Grinz member?

There are some fantastically FUN aspects to being part of the Guppy Grinz Club. At their initial consultation, patients are presented with a goodies bag filled with some fabulous rewards! The following are examples of what is included:

  • The Official Guppy Grinz Club T-shirt
  • Invitations to special parties and events
  • Educational materials
  • Quarterly newsletters
  • Birthday recognition

We want to make sure our patients receive the BEST care, and most diligent attention, to ensure the appropriate treatment is implemented at the right time. Call today to schedule your child’s first complimentary visit!

Best ortho around great with kids. They have activities to put the kids at ease and keep them occupied even video screens to watch movies while in the chair being examined."

“On vacation, my son's expander broke, and half of it came out of his mouth. We slightly panicked as we were more than two hours from home. We called Sanborn Orthodontist, they stayed open for us to get there and took care of him as if he was one of their regular patients. We were so impressed and thankful."

Maureen B.

“The staff is awesome. They made our little girl feel so comfortable. Outstanding atmosphere!"

Cathy L.

“Love Dr. Sanborn and his staff. They are very friendly and care about all their patients. He is involved in the community in promoting dental care. I went in for my consultation appointment and I was back in the next day getting my braces on. I would recommend Dr. Sanborn for anyone who is looking for a good orthodontist."
