Treat Yourself Right: Local Orthodontist Gives Brace-Friendly Halloween Advice

Every October local orthodontist, Dr. Susan Lempert, urges parents and children to be mindful of certain Halloween treats that have the potential to damage orthodontic braces.  Sticky, crunchy and chewy candy will break the braces off the teeth. Repairing the broken brace is time consuming for both the patient and the doctor and requires missed time from school and work.   

Instead, choose softer options like melt-in-your mouth chocolates, peanut butter cups or thinly sliced apples with soft caramel dip. Remember to brush your teeth with fluoride toothpaste after these sweet treats!  

Looking for a way to get rid of all that extra candy?  Dr. Lempert proudly supports Operation Gratitude and is hosting a Halloween Candy Dropoff at her office.   Candy will be boxed up and shipped to the troops. The last day for drop-off will be November 7th.   

Dr. Lempert provides complimentary screenings for children in her Swedesboro office. You can visit her website at to learn more about her practice.

Dr. Susan Lempert




Dr. Lempert graduated from Brown University with a B.A. in Human Biology.   She received her Master of Science in Oral Biology Degree, Certificate in Orthodontics, and Doctor of Dental Medicine Degree from Temple University School of Dentistry.  


Raines Dental Pink Wednesdays to Support Those in the Fight Against Breast Cancer

 Raines Dental LLC, a full service practice providing comprehensive general and cosmetic dentistry in Mullica Hill, kicks off Pink Wednesdays, a month-long effort in honor of breast cancer awareness month for the second year in a row. Throughout the month of October, for patients who schedule a non-preventative dental appointment on a Wednesday, Raines Dental will donate a portion of the fee to create Chemo Care Bags for those in the fight against breast cancer.

The practice is also encouraging patients to support and share in this effort to help women diagnosed with breast cancer accepting donations at the office every day of the week. Those who contribute will be recognized with a Pink Tooth and entered into a raffle supported by other local businesses. At the end of October, the bags will be hand-filled with lotions, candies, magazines, anti-nausea medications and other items that bring comfort to those getting chemotherapy treatments. Then, Dr. Raines and staff will personally deliver them to the Penn Medicine Abramson Cancer Center in Philadelphia, PA.

“Last year was such a rewarding success that we couldn’t wait to support this effort once again, says practice owner, Jason Raines,  DDS. “To read that about 1 in 8 U.S. women will develop invasive breast cancer over the course of her lifetime is heartbreaking. The likelihood of it hitting close to home is inescapable. So, this year we decided to make it a bit more personal by creating Chemo Care Bags for those actually in the fight.” Pink Wednesdays is only one of the efforts Dr. Raines has implemented or supported to help those in need. Other programs have included Access to Care as an Albert Schweitzer Fellow, Give Kids a Smile, Dentistry From the Heart and “Take Mom to the Dentist” this past May. He adds, “there is nothing more rewarding than giving back.”

Raines Dental, LLC provides comprehensive general and cosmetic dentistry, including routine oral hygiene and cleanings, fillings, dental implant restorations and root canal therapy. State-of-the-art treatments also encompass traditional and same day dentures, bridges, crowns and dental sealants plus extensive cosmetic services from bonding and porcelain veneers to teeth whitening and clear braces.  Raines Dental is located at 4 Burton Lane, Suite 200 in Mullica Hill, New Jersey with flexible appointment scheduling Tuesday through Saturday and participates with most dental insurances to maximize patients’ benefits. For more information, visit or call (856) 343-4020.
