POP Program

The American Association of Orthodontics recommends that children are first seen by an orthodontist at the age of 7 years. Younger siblings (under the age of 7) may occasionally accompany their big brother/sister to the office and are curious about orthodontics.

At Lucas Orthodontics, we offer the Pre-Orthodontic Treatment Program (POP), where the younger children can get involved and educated about their teeth and how to care for them.

Each of these children gets a special POP t-shirt and a special gift on their birthday until they are ready for their first orthodontic exam at age 7.
