Congrats to Our Most Embarrassing Orthodontics Story Winners

VCO Orthodontics

Smile (file photo)Lisa and Sarah: we’re sorry you had to go through those things, but congratulations! At least you’re going to have whiter teeth.

Sarah and Lisa are the top vote-getters in our Most Embarrassing Orthodontics Story contest, sponsored by our friends at VCO Orthodontics in Rosslyn.

Lisa will get professional teeth whitening for two from VCO, a more than $800 value, while Sarah, as runner-up, will get teeth whitening for one.

Lisa received 332 votes for her humorous story of getting orthodontic headgear installed just before a televised holiday sing-along by her school choir. Needless to say, it was a very lispy “Crethmath.”

Sarah, meanwhile, received 107 votes for having to go dumpster diving for her retainer after leaving it on her lunch tray in fifth grade. She found it and actually wore it again, which frankly sounds worse than Lisa’s experience, but — ARLnow readers have spoken and she’s No. 2.

Our thanks to VCO and Dr. Crissy Markova, DMD, for sponsoring this fun contest. If you or your kids are in need of orthodontic help and want state-of-the-art care in a modern, comfortable and environmentally-conscious setting, VCO is the place for you.

The Arlington-Aachen High School exchange is returning this summer and currently accepting applicants.

The sister-city partnership started in 1993 by the Arlington Sister Cities Association, which seeks to promote Arlington’s international profile through a variety of exchanges in education, commerce, culture and the arts. The exchange, scheduled June 17th to July 4th, includes a two-week homestay in Aachen plus three days in Berlin. Knowledge of the German language is not required for the trip.

Former participants have this to say:

_”The Aachen exchange was an eye-opening experience where I was fully immersed in the life of a German student. I loved biking through the countryside to Belgium, having gelato and picnics in the town square, and hanging out with my German host student’s friends. My first time out of the country, the Aachen exchange taught me to keep an open mind, because you never know what could be a life changing experience.” – Kelly M._
