Dr. David R. Lach, owner of Lach Orthodontic Specialists, is giving back to the community in a variety of ways as part of his commitment to make East Orlando a better place to call home.
Free Colored, Customized Mouth Guards for Youth Sports Teams
In an effort to educate parents, coaches and young athletes about the prevalence of sports injuries and how many of these can be reduced or prevented by wearing proper protective mouth gear, Dr. Lach’s office will be providing free mouth guards to local sports teams.
“Accidents and injuries are a part of sports, but many involving the mouth can be avoided if proper mouth guards are worn,” says Dr. Lach. His office will be offering colored, custom fit mouth guards (valued at $250) free of charge as an alternative to the “one size fits all” guards found in sporting goods stores. “These special devices are carefully designed to provide optimal protection from facial and dental injuries during sports,” he says.
The office also welcomes players from all organizations to join them for an end of the season sports parties with food and games.
Promoting and Rewarding Positive Behavior
Dr. Lach would also like to acknowledge area youth’s accomplishments in academics, athletics, arts, music and community service through the use of the office’s Fin-Tastic Rewards Card.
“The program allows us to work directly with coaches, parents, teachers and community leaders to recognize our youth through a points system,” says Dr. Lach. “Participants simply track points and cash in on free prizes from retailers like StarBucks, McDonalds, Sports Authority, Target, Game Stop and iTunes.”

Smiles for Hope Foundation Offers Orthodontic Care to Kids in Need
The Smiles for Hope Foundation aims to provide orthodontic care for several patients each year that may not be able to obtain the assistance they require because of their financial or special situations.
“We have several children participating in our program now and each time they visit our practice for orthodontic treatment they arrive in style,” says Dr. Lach. “A stretch Hummer limo brings them to their appointment and while they’re here, we have a Family Fun Night of games, inflatables, free food and ice cream.”
Family Fun Nights are open and free to all patients and residents in the community. Events are hosted every two months. Applicants can enter online or at the practice’s office.
Lach-Star Winner to Receive Free Braces
Recognizing that not everyone can receive free braces through the foundation, Dr. Lach created a contest to win free orthodontic care called “Lach-Star” which is open to all area children.
To enter, contestants must first post a video of themselves dancing, singing or performing to the practice’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/LachOrthodonticSpecialists. Then, simply tag the video with “Lach Ortho” and have friends comment on the post.
The contest will end August 5. The top three finalists will perform onstage during the next Family Fun Night on August 9. The winner will receive free braces with the runners up going home with an iPod product.
