Colleges at Cooney & Tyner Orthodontics

At Cooney & Tyner Orthodontics, we are proud of the work we do with our patients, but our pride doesn’t end there. Before our team was considered professionals, they were working to get their degree in some incredible universities in the Albany/Troy area and beyond.

Back to School Smiles at Cooney & Tyner Orthodontics

School is officially back! 

Everyone remembers picture day as part of the back-to-school routine, whether as a student or a parent. Picture day and the beginning of school are times where everyone wears their nicest outfits for photos, but there is often little children can do to dress up their smiles. For some, these early school photos provide a meaningful “before” photo to eventually be paired with an “after” following orthodontic treatment. 

The American Association of Orthodontists recommends that the initial orthodontic evaluation should occur at the first sign of orthodontic problems or no later than age 7. By bringing your child to the orthodontist at an early age, they will have a lifetime of confident smiles. 

In honor of school being back, let’s take a look at our staff’s smiles from their school pictures.
