Orthodontist Dr. Howard Shullman’s New Book Is Designed To Get People To Smile Dr. Howard B. Shullman is a highly trained and skilled orthodontist who has been serving the Wellington community for more than 12 years and treats patients of all ages. Now, he has published an inspirational book called 101 Reasons to Smile. With an undergraduate degree in biomedical engineering and a doctorate of dental medicine, both from the University of Florida, Shullman is a member of the American Association of Orthodontics and the South Florida Academy of Orthodontics. Following graduation, Shullman practiced general dentistry in Tampa, focusing on the treatment of children, before continuing his orthodontic training at Nova Southeastern University. There, he served as chief resident in the Department of Orthodontics during his final year of residency. An active member of the Wellington community, he is highly involved in the area, helping out with local schools, recreational leagues and businesses. In addition, Shullman is a member of the Wellington Chamber of Commerce’s Health & Medical Committee, where he and his staff brainstorm with other committee members about local community initiatives. The practice’s philosophy is to employ both skill and compassion in everything they do. This ensures that each patient receives the most advanced, effective and customized treatment plan. Shullman’s love of the constantly evolving field of orthodontics drives him to be knowledgeable about all the newest treatment options. As such, his patients receive the most up-to-date and

effective care possible. Shullman offers multiple guarantees to alleviate concerns his patients may have throughout their treatment process and the life of their smile. In order to accomplish this, Shullman offers his Lifetime Satisfaction and Lifetime Retainer guarantees. With the Lifetime Satisfaction Guarantee, Shullman is so confident with his treatment methodology that if patients aren’t completely satisfied with their results at any point after orthodontic treatment, all they have to do is let him know, and he will fix it. Shullman also knows that the key to a happy and healthy smile is properly wearing and maintaining an orthodontic retainer. Many orthodontists charge a fee to replace a retainer, but Shullman knows that sometimes accidents happen. With the Lifetime Retainer Guarantee, if a patient loses or breaks a retainer, Shullman will replace it for free. His latest endeavor is a book written to inspire others to share a smile. Titled 101 Reasons to Smile, it reminds people to think about the moments in their life where they felt happy or inspired. “Smiles inspire all of us,” Shullman writes in the introduction. “Smiles evoke confidence. Smiles warm the soul. Smiles have the ability to change our mood and the mood of others. Smiles are contagious. For these reasons and so many more, this book was written to express the joy I have experienced over the years creating beautiful smiles that last a lifetime.” Each page of the book includes an inspirational reason to smile, such as: “Squishing your toes in the sand as the ocean water surrounds your feet,” “looking into someone’s eyes and seeing their

soul” and “seeing the work you do impact people in a positive, lasting way.” Since the book has been released, Shullman has donated thousands to local schools for their upcoming graduating classes as a special gift. In addition, 101 Reasons to Smile has been given to many community businesses and local Wellington Chamber of Commerce committee members. He has even begun signing copies for his patients. To receive a complimentary copy of Shullman’s book, or to learn more about his orthodontics practice, call (561) 868-5050 or visit Shullman Orthodontics at 9859 Lake Worth Road, Suite 21. For those not in the area, or if you would like to send a copy of the book to someone special, 101 Reasons to Smile is also available on Amazon for $15, where 100 percent of the proceeds will go toward a scholarship fund for patients who otherwise cannot afford orthodontics treatment.
