MEDFORD, NY, July 08, 2010 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Lutz family of East Setauket, NY was the recipient of a Long Island Extreme Makeover: Home Edition which began on Tuesday June 22 and was completed in five days by the end of the week. Unlike the show's traditional early morning door knock, Ty Pennington made the announcement to the family at Yankee Stadium on the Jumbotron prior to the NY Yankees vs. the NY Mets game.
When Coolsmiles heard about the project, they knew that wanted to become involved. Orthodontists Dr Leon Klempner and Dr David Amram quickly joined in to support the Long Island community effort by offering their orthodontic expertise and services to the Lutz family.
Dr Leon Klempner, a resident of Setauket NY for the past 23 years, attended the Press Conference to personally present the Coolsmiles contribution to the Lutz family. "We are not good at electrical... and we are not good at plumbing," commented Dr. Leon Klempner. "But we are good at creating beautiful smiles".
Dr Klempner further stated, "Special needs families often have medical and dental costs that are sometimes prohibitive and financial resources may be limited. On behalf of myself and my partner Dr David Amram, Coolsmiles would like to provide complete comprehensive orthodontic care to all members of the Lutz family."
To watch Dr Klempner present the certificate for orthodontic treatment to the Lutz family at the press conference, visit their blog.
Many special needs patients, especially with Downs Syndrome, require extensive dental care due to developmental issues resulting in missing or unerupted teeth that can cause health issues later on in life. The entire Coolsmiles Team is thrilled to not only make a difference in the lives of the deserving Lutz family, but to also play along with the Long Island community coming together for a great cause.
The Extreme Makeover: Home Edition featuring the Lutz family from East Setauket NY will air on ABC in September 2010.
Coolsmiles Orthodontics has been creating beautiful healthy smiles for over 25 years in the Long Island area and specializes in leading edge orthodontic treatment which reduces treatment time and discomfort. For teen and adult patients who don't like the idea of wearing braces, Dr Klempner and Amram are certified Invisalign treatment providers. Invisalign is the "braceless" alternative to straight teeth.
