Bullying is a nationwide epidemic that over 3.2 million students report being victims of each year.
Fishbein Orthodontics is proud of the work we do to help kids have a more confident and healthy smile. We recognize that, unfortunately, this can't solve every issue stemming from low self-esteem, so we're setting out to do more. In order to do our part to combat the enormously high statistics relating to school-age bullying, we decided to start building a more unified community–starting with you!
We are proud to announce EmBraces
Our anti-bullying initiative aimed to build a network of young ambassadors that spread positivity and educate the importance of embracing others.
Throughout the school year, Embraces will award full orthodontic treatment to three chosen applicants who shared their story of overcoming a bullying-related struggle and made a positive impact for themselves or others. These students will receive treatment free of cost from Fishbein Orthodontics and become the start of a team of young do-gooders in the community that will go on to help their peers learn more about why it’s important for people to embrace each other.
Start the Conversation at Home
If you think you're a good match for this, start the discussion with your family and take a stance to stop bullying. You can either submit a video or short essay explaining your experience, what changes you wish to see, a situation you helped prevent, or how you overcame bullying yourself.
