Introducing the iD Kids Next Generation

iD Kids

Kenilworth, IL – Kenilworth orthodontist Dr. Michael Stosich is committed to ensuring children throughout the Chicago area have the healthiest smiles possible. To that end, Dr. Stosich and iDentity Orthodontics are proud to announce the iD Kids Next Generation, a growth and guidance club to monitor your child’s smile.

“This club is for children of all ages, beginning at age one,” says Dr. Stosich. “This is a time to monitor your child’s dental and facial growth every six months so we can be sure everything is progressing as it should. It will allow us to catch developing problems early enough that we can use minimally invasive treatment approaches to correct them.”

Children who are part of the club will be seen in the office by Dr. Stosich and his staff, and will have at-home digital monitoring communication abilities.

The American Association of Orthodontics recommend that children visit an orthodontist for the first time at the age of seven. But, beginning a relationship with an orthodontist at an even younger age can help ensure that treatment can begin at exactly the right time to have the most impact. And for some children, Dr. Stosich will be able to assist with habits that can damage a child’s mouth, such as thumb sucking or tongue thrusting.

“I want every child to have a healthy and ideally functioning bite,” says Dr. Stosich. “Ensuring a properly working bite can help a child avoid a host of other problems. For some children, their smiles may look fine to the naked eye, but the trained eye of an orthodontist can spot issues that could spell trouble in the future. And other children may look like their smiles full of baby teeth are going to be a problem, which in fact the permanent teeth may come in just fine.”

Membership in the iD Kids Next Generation is free of charge and every monitoring visit is, as well. And you won’t find a more experienced and knowledgeable orthodontist than Dr. Stosich.

Dr. Stosich is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics, and also serves as the Director of Orthodontics at the University of Chicago and Comer Children’s Hospital. He spent seven years at some of the top research universities in the country, where he performed studies on how to move teeth as effectively as possible through bone. Every patient Dr. Stosich treats benefits from his advanced smile techniques.
