Sylvania Award Program Honors the Achievement

SYLVANIA July 7, 2014 — Drs. Simon, Haerian, & Ludwig Orthodontics has been selected for the 2014 Best of Sylvania Award in the Orthodontists category by the Sylvania Award Program.

Each year, the Sylvania Award Program identifies companies that we believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and our community. These exceptional companies help make the Sylvania area a great place to live, work, and play.

Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2014 Sylvania Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Sylvania Award Program and data provided by third parties.

Miles for Smiles 2012

The purpose of the Miles for Smiles event is to bring the entire Northwest Ohio dental community together for a day of fun, fitness, and fundraising. Participants included dentists, hygienists, assistants, family, and friends all ready to walk or run to earn money to support the Dental Center of Northwest Ohio.

Since 1910, this nonprofit organization has been providing primary oral health services to area children, adults, and seniors with limited access to oral healthcare. Last year, Miles for Smiles raised more than $50,000, and judging by the number of participants this year, we're sure it will be prove to be just as profitable.

Our staff and doctors love participating in this great fundraiser, and we are proud to announce our patient, Ben Wexler, won this year! Way to go, Ben!
