How to Get a Straighter Smile with Invisalign & Krieger Orthodontics

I met with Dr. Krieger for my complimentary consultation, and we talked about my options.

I started on the SimplyStr8 Program and at the time this article is being written, I am about 13 weeks in.

I decided that enough was enough with the tricks and products that didn’t work. I’m making a change for good! Aiming for more great hair days, I swapped my shampoo and conditioner with Pantene’s Sheer Volume Collection and took the 14 Day Challenge!
