Since 1973, Rogers & Andrews Orthodontics has been instrumental in giving handmade smile to over 15,000 patients in Augusta and beyond! We are fast approaching our fifty-year anniversary as an Augusta orthodontist, which we will certainly have to celebrate in fashion. But seeing as how this is our 45th year providing Augusta and Thompson with orthodontic services, we figured it would be a worthwhile activity to sit back and take account of some major historical events that have taken place since the year 1973. A whole lot has changed since then, but one thing that has remained the same is our commitment to providing reliable orthodontic treatment.
Here are a few historical events we thought we’d mention in order to help convey exactly how long we’ve been around at Rogers & Andrews Orthodontics:
- In 1975, The Vietnam War ended!
- Bill Gates and Paul Allen founded Microsoft, also in 1975
- The United States celebrated 200 years as a nation in 1976!
- Xerox markets the very first mouse as a part of a personal computer in 1981
- Nintendo introduces the Game Boy in 1986
- In 1987, the world’s population increases to 5 billion strong!
- The Cold War ends in 1990, as East and West Germany are reunited!
- J.K. Rowling publishes the very first Harry Potter book in 1997
- The tragedy on 9/11/01 takes place
- President Barack Obama is elected as the first African American president of the United States in 2008.
- Facebook, Twitter, and the world of mobile devices and social media takes place, for better or for worse!
Orthodontic Care You Count On
So much has happened that we are only skimming the surface when it comes to world events since 1973. But in truth, we are not historians; we are providers of orthodontic care. We just wanted to point out that being in business for almost a half-century is something we are proud of because it points to the fact that we are a local orthodontist that treats our patients the right way. If we weren’t, there’s a safe bet we wouldn’t be around anymore!
From Dr. Andrews and the rest of our staff, we are committed to making sure each patient who receives treatment achieves the most radiant and healthy smile they’ve ever had. We combine our wealth of experience with innovative technology and equipment to ensure our patients receive the best orthodontic care available. The finishing touch is our dedication to personal care. You aren’t just a patient when you walk through our doors; you are a person with unique needs and goals.
