Think Pink to End Breast CancerHalloween Candy: Which Treats are Safe for Braces?

Columbus, OH, October 2016: October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and the Hutta brothers are coming together to help fight this disease with Pink Smiles! For the entire month, all three practices are donating $5 to the Stefanie Spielman Fund for Breast Cancer Research for every patient that requests pink bands on their braces. The fund supports cancer research at The Ohio State University Comprehensive Cancer Center – Arthur G. James Cancer Hospital and Richard J. Solove Research Institute.

Hutta & Hutta Orthodontics, Hutta & Cook Orthodontics, and James T. Hutta Orthodontics are excited to be a part of this incredible cause and are happy to have found a unique way to donate thousands of dollars toward breast cancer Research.

“We have been deeply touched by this cause, and are determined to do our part for our global community to find a cure” says Dr. James T. Hutta. “We know so many families affected by this disease, and feel we have found a great way to help. We love that our patients are rallying around this cause and so many of them have requested a pink smile to do their part in the fight.”

Last year, patients—young and old, male and female—were proud to wear pink bands and participate in this great cause. Its impact reached far and wide, and created a strong enthusiasm that involved the entire community. It was such a success and moved so many people that Dr. Hutta’s brother and fellow orthodontist, Dr. J. Lawrence Hutta, wanted to adopt the Pink Smiles charitable campaign in his offices.

“We are so excited to have our practice involved in this year’s Pink Smiles campaign,” says Dr. J. Lawrence Hutta. “We really wanted to do something to help make a difference. We love seeing all of our patients with Pink Smiles!”

“All of our patients are so engaged in making a difference by sporting their pink in October,” echoes Dr. James T. Hutta. “We really feel proud knowing that we’ve inspired our community to learn more about this disease and how they can help.”

The Pink Smiles campaign runs through the end of October, and speaks to the incredible power of community engagement.

“We are so happy to help our many patients and friends impacted by this illness” says Dr. Brandon Cook of Hutta & Cook Orthodontics. “We are very much looking forward to carrying the tradition into the future, until we can find a cure.”
