Drs. Hobson is a big supporter of her Hood River community and your child’s overall health. One of the ways she supports both is by sponsoring the Hood River Little League.
This is a wonderful organization that provides the opportunity for all boys and girls ages 4-14 to participate in either baseball, soft ball or T-ball leagues. Straightline Orthodontics believe that participating in programs like this is a great way for kids to build self-esteem, stay healthy and spend time out side!
Dr. Hobson is happy to participate in bringing such a positive opportunity to the kids in our Hood River community! Registration is open now, you can find out more information online at http://www.eteamz.com.
Congress and the American Dental Association (ADA) has designated the month of February as Dental Health Month. The ADA sponsors this month to raise awareness about the importance of children’s oral health.
Did you know that tooth decay is the number one preventable childhood disease? Prevention begins with good dental habits, the right diet and regular visits to the dentist at a very early age.
Many pediatric dentists recommend seeing children before the age of one. At this age, it’s about more than clean teeth, it is about developing a long lasting relationship with parent’s, the child and dental provider. This approach truly makes a difference in the lives of children and the movement for healthy kids.
It is never too late for your child to see a dentist. Pediatric dentists speacialize in the care and treatment of children. While some general dentists see children, it is important to talk with your dental provider to see if it is a good fit for everyone. Creating a great dental experience from an early age is ideal.
Setting the stage for a healthy dental foundation and establishing a great relationships will carry on for a lifetime. Seeing your dentist is just as important as seeing your physician. Hood River has many fantastic options for your children’s dental care. If you have any questions, Dr. Hobson is always available to you and your family.
We are proud to be a sponsor of this year’s Halloween Family Dance! It promises to be a great night of family, costumes and dancing with Dance Machine!
Not only will it be fun, the dance benefits a great cause! A fund is being started to provide Title 1 students the opportunity to participate in after school activities, such a ballet, Lego club, swimming lessons and karate. Many of us take these opportunities to enrich our children’s lives outside of the classroom for granted, but for many of our neighbors, finances prohibit participation. This fund will help eliminate the financial obstacle, allowing more kids to participate in extra-curricular activities – which not only enriches their lives, but our whole community!
We look forward to seeing you on October 30th! For more information, see the flyer below or visit the event Facebook page.
We were thrilled at the chance to be a sponsor of this year’s Gorge Kids Triathlon, which helps support health and physical education in our local schools – something we couldn’t be more proud to be a part of!

If you didn’t get a chance to meet Dr. Kara or sign up for your free consult, feel free to email us at email@example.com and we will get you scheduled for a courtesy exam.
