1st Graders

Kindergarteners

Results from the Madeleine School Jog-a-thon are in and the winners of the $250 challenge grants from Braces by Dr. Joe & Dr. Rensch are the First Graders, and the Kindergarteners!  Don't you just love it when the youngest students show 'em how it's done!  The Kindergartners had the highest participation of any class  in the event , and the First graders raised the most money.  Awesome!  We love supporting the Jog-a-thon and the students at the Madeleine School.  This year the weather on the day of the Jog-a-thon was so hot, students had only 20 minutes to run as many laps as they could, (not the usual 40.)  Parents and friends lined the track with spray bottles ready to cool off the runners.   Popsicles were a perfect way to end the day.  Great job students at the Madeleine School!

Pizza, friends, family, and lots of smiles ended the season for the Braces by Dr. Joe & Dr. Rensch Wilshire Riverside Little League team.  A pizza picnic before the game gave everyone a chance to catch their breath and relax.  Over the season the team showed a lot of improvement in baseball skills and equally as important developed many friendships.

We are proud to support Wilshire Riverside Little League. We'd like to thank the awesome coaches, family members and many volunteers it takes to keep these local kids playing ball in the park. It’s great to see everyone outside playing together, learning to be a part of team!  

We're looking forward to next year!  

 

 

Ready, Set, Go!

The Jog-a-Thon at the Madeleine School was a blazing success!

For the third year in a row we are happy to support The Madeleine School by offering 2 challenge grants during the Jog-a-Thon.  Whew! this year race day the temperatures reached into the 90's so parents stood near the track with spray bottles ready to cool off the runners.  Awesome music made running (or walking) around the track sound like fun. Way to go Madeleine students, parents and staff for putting together such a fun event every year!

.

The Jog-a-Thon is a major fundraiser for The Madeleine School, and getting everyone outside, and having fun makes it a perfect event for Braces by Dr. Joe & Dr. Rensch to help support.  Plus, we get to hand out 300 popsicles!

Wilshire Riverside Little League

Play Ball!  Put down the electronic devices and head for the ballpark.  We love supporting the neighborhood kids as they learn to play baseball.  Little Leaguers learn how to work as a team, communicate with each other, get outside and have fun!  It's a great night when parents, grandparents and friends are cheering in the stands.  Go watch a game some night, you'll laugh and have a good time, and see some great baseball.  We'd also like to recognize the many coaches and volunteers who make these games possible.  You are appreciated!  Here's to fun times and  snacks after the game! 

Camp Beaumont!

Posted: Feb 28th, 2019

We dusted off our hiking boots and headed for Camp Beaumont!  The "Un-Auction" event had a "Camp" theme, including yummy s'mores!  "Camp Beaumont" is the largest fundraising event for Beaumont Middle School and we are happy to help support the local students, teachers and their awesome awarding winning programs in music, math, art and drama.

 



Happy Trails!

Ride ’em Cowboy!

Ride 'em Cowboy!

The Alameda Auction Preview Party was a rootin-tootin good time! As first time sponsors of the Preview Party we helped kids hop into the saddle at a "Rodeo" themed photo booth and let their inner cowboy or cowgirl shine!  People took home fun photo strips filled with families, friends and just happy cowpokes!  Parents and kids attended the event to preview the awesome art projects the students are working on to be sold at the upcoming auction.   Parents and kids alike could wander through the art, join in the cakewalk, buy a hand crafted bandana, take a "Rodeo" photo, and reserve their table at the Auction.  What a fun way to say "Howdy Partner" and support our neighborhood kids and Alameda Elementary School!



Record Funds Raised at 2018 Jogathon!

Posted: Jun 18th, 2018

Records were smashed at the 2018 Jogathon!  Over $52,000 dollars were raised at this fun, fast event at The Madeleine School.  Cheers for the 1st, 2nd and 3rd Graders who won the Challenge Grants from Braces by Dr. Joe & Dr. Rensch.  The 1st and 3rd Graders tied to win the "Highest Participation" award with 100% participation! Wow!  Big cheers for the 2nd Graders who won the "Funding Frontrunner" challenge by raising the most money in a single class.  We are so happy to support the fantastic students and the great programs at The Madeleine School.

Beverly Cleary School Barn Dance

Posted: May 7th, 2018

We are grateful to support the Beverly Cleary School as sponsors of their Barn Dance Auction.  Community support helps keep the excellent staff and inspired programs running at Beverly Cleary School. Rossi Farms in NE Portland was the perfect setting for a country casual good time.  Thank you to all the staff and volunteers who worked on putting together such a fun night!

 

Play Ball! Wilshire Riverside Little League Support

Posted: Apr 18th, 2018

We're excited to see our team working together in the ballfield learning how to play the game. Spending a summer night in the park watching a big game is AWESOME! Thank you to all the Coaches, Moms, Dads, and everyone who is there to support these young ballplayers.  We love being a part of the Wilshire Riverside Little League!

 

 

Go Sky Piranhas Robotics Team!

Posted: Jan 29th, 2018

Building robots and life skills!

We are happy to support the Sky Piranhas robotics team! Several of our patients are members of this team that builds robots to compete at events.  The Sky Piranhas are part of the "FIRST" (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology) program.  This program helps students learn engineering and design skills, along with leadership and communication basics.  We love that the goal of this program is to give students a hands-on experience working with real engineers, so scientists and engineers can be seen as role models just like professional athletes.  Awesome!

"Thanks Dr Joe and crew for taking such amazing care of my three kids over the years! We have had a fantastic experience each and every appointment. Dr. Joe combines his excellent skills with a great team and office experience. He and the team identified each of my kid's different needs and personalities. They then met each one where they were at, worked with them every visit to help them succeed, and they all have fantastic smiles and great memories! Thank you!!"

"Dr. Joe and his entire staff are top of the line.  This place is clean, they explain what they’re doing and why, and the results are amazing.  Dr. Joe and team not only straightened my teeth, but fixed my bite.  Chewing food is awesome now and so easy to keep my teeth clean!"

"This place is very professional and makes sure you feel comfortable and welcome.  Being new to the area and finding a new orthodontist worried me a bit, but the staff here made me feel like I’ve been a patient forever!  The office is very clean, so well decorated, and very comfortable.  Dr. Joe and all of the staff were so friendly!  They explained everything to me thoroughly in regards to my new patient exam, and made sure I knew what my options were moving forward.   They were able to look at my mouth and answer any questions I had, as well as provide me with reasoning and explanation behind my bite and jaw issues.  I felt very well taken care of and would highly recommend coming here to anyone regardless of your orthodontics situation.  I will definitely be returning!"
