Myers Orthodontics on Bringing Up Bates

While it might surprise you to hear this, orthodontics isn't usually a profession that brings a lot of fame. While we love what we do and feel truly blessed to get to serve the community of Knoxville with wonderful smiles, our recognition rarely extends beyond the gratitude and friendship of our patients. And we're just fine with that - for us, the look of sheer joy and excitement when a patient gets their braces off and sees their brand new smile is more than enough thanks. But recently, we got to try our hand at appearing on a national reality TV show - that was an exciting day in the office!

A Special Guest Appearance

That's right - Dr. Myers and Myers Orthodontics were recently featured on an episode of Bringing Up Bates! For those who don't know, Bringing Up Bates is a reality television program following the lives of Gil and Kelly Jo Bates - along with their 19 children! It was time for some of the children to have their first orthodontic visit, and like any good parents, Kelly Jo and Gil came in for an evaluation to see what treatment was needed. To show our love for our patients and their families, we offer a 5% discount for each additional sibling... but 18 additional siblings was something we definitely didn't plan for!

Either way, the Bates's visit was a fun day for everyone at the office, and the children were a joy to treat. The episode aired in June, so you can watch for it playing on UPtv or watch the online preview here.
