Ortho Patients Expand Dining Possibilities

November 18th, 2008 · No Comments

Wearing traditional braces as an adult comes with a list of “cons” that barely outweighs the “pros.” Dietary restriction is one such con. More than one million adult braces wearers in North America will be pleased to learn that now there’s a cookbook just for them. Two cookbooks, actually.

The Braces Cookbook 2: Comfort Food with a Gourmet Touch by Pamela Waterman and Amee Hoge features delectable dishes that won’t put orthodontic devices at risk. With entrĂ©e, dessert, and appetizer dishes, including ideas for vegetarians, The Braces Cookbook expands dining horizons for braces wearers. Tips for eating out and how to wear braces with sophistication and style are also included. The whole family can eat – and enjoy – meals planned from the book.

The first in the set, written expressly for teens, was entitled The Braces Cookbook: Recipes You (and Your Orthodontist) Will Love. It won the Best Arizona Cookbook Glyph Award and was honored with the Good Parenting Seal. Both cookbooks are published by The Discovery Box, and you can find them online at (The second comes out in December.) Or visit to learn more. If you’d like to purchase the books for your office, special case pricing is available.
