Thoughts on ''Ugly Betty''?

By RD Heldenfels Published: September 28, 2006

You've had a chance to see it. Comments welcome. And here's an odd one -- in the form of a letter to Betty -- that arrived in tonight's e-mail, clearly from someone who didn't see the braces as part of the show's overall exaggeration:


Dear Betty,
I saw you on Thursday and I want to be the first to congratulate you on joining the growing trend of more than one million adults with braces – you are well on your way to a healthy, beautiful smile.


Although most adults today opt for sleeker and less noticeable braces, it looks like you decided on the retro “railroad tracks” model. If you ever want to make a change, please feel free to contact me -- or one of my 9,350 colleagues in the U.S. and Canada -- at the American Association of Orthodontists. If you want to see the latest treatments we offer, or if you’d like to find an orthodontist near you, please visit us online at www.braces.org.


Good luck with the new job and keep smiling,
Donald R. Joondeph, DDS, MS
President
American Association of Orthodontists
