Mapleton youth wins Arbor Day tree poster contest

Emma Beach, a fourth-grader at Mapleton Elementary, recently won the Sweepstakes Award for the Utah Arbor Day Tree Poster Contest. 

r By April GallierrSpringville orthodontist, Dr. Casey Warren, has always wanted to give back to the community he grew up in. For the last 8 years, he has been giving back by providing orthodontic scholarships to local kids that may not be able to otherwise have the opportunity for a straight smile. Dr. Warren said, “A smile is a very important, so if we change it and make someone more confident, I really enjoy doing that.”

This year Dr. Warren was able to award 5 girls the opportunity to have free braces with the scholarship program. While the program is not limited to gender, these 5 girls were the top candidates for this year’s scholarship.

To become a candidate to receive free orthodontic treatment, individuals must fill out an application that includes information about why they would be a good candidate and include a head-shot, two letters of reference and verification of income. “I like the programs because it is a scholarship and individuals need to put forth the effort to apply,” Dr. Warren said. “Having braces put on and taking care of them takes effort, so it shows us that the person who has applied is willing to put forth the effort to help change their smile.”

In the last 8 years, Dr. Warren has awarded more than 45 orthodontic scholarships totaling more than $220,000. Previous recipient, Tienna S., said, “I smile more because I feel more confident with my straight teeth.”

Dr. Warren started his practice, Warren Orthodontics, in Springville in January 2010 after graduating top of his class from Baylor College of Dentistry and completing an orthodontic specialty program at the University of Nebraska, also graduating top of his class.
