Join Dr. Tisseront and the Team for a fun filled evening of ICE SKATING on Thursday, February 1st from 6-8pm at the Reston Town Center Ice Skating Pavillion. Come skate the night away with us while sipping on hot chocolate! Bring the family and a friend for a chance to WIN a PS4! RSVP to [email protected] by January 25th! We hope to see you there!
School has been in session for a whole month already, and it’s about time to get the creative juices flowing and help your children figure out what they’re going to wear for Halloween. Will it be a Despicable Me 3 costume? Wonder Woman? Or maybe a slice of bacon, because everyone loves bacon!
While you’re trying to figure that out, you may start thinking about the amount of candy that ends up in your home after a night of trick-or-treating. All that candy! The sugary bliss of a week full of candy for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Ahhhh…..
This may trigger thoughts of ingenious ways of getting rid of all that candy… Take it to the office? “Trade it in” with your children, and have them choose their favorite toy? Throw it away? WAIT! There’s a better solution that you’re going to just love….
Bring your candy to a dentist’s office. Bringing your leftover Halloween candy to a dentist may not be the first thought that pops up in your mind, but guess what? Each year there are a handful of dentists in Reston, such as Dr. Tisseront’s orthodontic practice in the Plaza America shopping center, who offer to PAY you for your leftover Halloween candy. You heard me right: they PAY YOU!
However, not all Halloween candy buy-back programs are the same, and none give you as many reasons to donate your candy as Tisseront Orthodontics. Dr. Tisseront and his team are passionate about supporting our local community, and they do so through annual dental health elementary school visits, by supporting local lifeguards with towels for their uniforms, by sponsoring local children’s sports teams such as soccer and baseball and, finally, by holding their annual, extremely popular Halloween Candy Buy-Back event.
Dr. Tisseront and his team have been collecting your leftover Halloween candy for the past 10 years. Dr. Tisseront donates $2 per pound of candy: $1 goes to the child donating, and $1 goes directly to Children’s National Medical Center in D.C. But it doesn’t stop there. Not only do they donate money to a great cause, they package up the candy and deliver it to our troops overseas! A letter-writing station is also set up during the event so the community can write letters of appreciation and draw pictures to send to our troops; each box of candy is accompanied by two to three letters.
Each year, they collect over 1,000 pounds of leftover Halloween candy! Last year set . a record of 1,679 pounds, and they hope to top that this year, with your help.
THIS EVENT HAS ALLOWED DR. TISSERONT TO DONATE OVER $20,000 TO CHILDREN’S NATIONAL MEDICAL CENTER OVER THE YEARS.
Local businesses such as Pitango, Mayflowers, Ben & Jerry’s, Clyde’s and the Skating Rink at Reston Town Center have all donated prizes for this popular community event. Many students volunteer to box up all that candy as well, so if your child needs service hours, give us a call!
This year will mark the 12th Annual Halloween Candy Buy-Back event for Dr. Tisseront’s office. With a win-win all around, don’t forget to mark your calendars for Monday, November 6, from 12 to 4 p.m. You’ll be glad you did!

Announcing the Launching of the New Elite Lingual Orthodontic Study Club, Inc. Website
Reston, VA – The Elite Lingual Orthodontic Study Club, Inc. (ELOSTM) is proud to announce the launching of its new website. The new site is designed to give comprehensive information about lingual braces, or behind the teeth braces, as well as information on where to find leading ELOS lingual specialists in the US and Canada.
Lingual braces are worn behind the teeth, making it very difficult for anyone to know you’re wearing braces at all. Comfortable and virtually invisible, lingual braces are the preferred option for those worried about the appearance of braces and don’t want buttons glued to their teeth as with clear aligners such as Invisalign®. Lingual braces are a great choice for both teens and adults. They are the braces of choice for CEO’s, professional athletes, celebrities and stars – and for anyone who wants to improve their smile but doesn’t want to show braces.
“I strongly believe in the important role orthodontics plays in changing people’s lives and I’m truly thrilled with the founding of ELOS and the launching its new website”, says Dr. Stephan Tisseront, initial Director of ELOS and President of Tisseront Orthodontics. “I’ve found that many patients have simply never heard of lingual braces, nor do they know where to find a truly skilled lingual specialist. Now, even those who’ve hesitated to improve their smile because they thought it meant wearing regular braces or clear aligners have an option to visit an ELOS lingual expert and improve their smile invisibly using lingual braces. All ELOS lingual specialists are skilled in treating any type of case, no matter how complex, with invisible lingual braces”.
Through the ELOS website, patients will have little difficulty determining which side to lean on when comparing lingual braces vs. Invisalign® or any other clear aligner system. ELOS offers a detailed definition of what lingual braces are and the various brands available such as Harmony, Incognito and Suresmile, as well as the various benefits over regular braces, retainers and clear aligners like Invisalign® or ClearcorrectTM.
“Not all orthodontists are skilled in the use of lingual braces, not many of us at all have been able to master this technique”, says Dr. Tisseront.
There are only a handful of Orthodontists across the country who are true lingual experts and who are able to treat any case with lingual braces. The ELOS website has information on nearby expert lingual orthodontists located across the U.S. and Canada. The site includes a map under the ‘Meet the Doctors’ section where patients can view a map displaying ELOS lingual orthodontists. The site also has a section, lingual braces before and after, that shows prospective patients what they can expect when treated by an ELOS orthodontist. It also provides answers to the most frequently asked questions about lingual braces.
