ATLANTA, June 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- The Georgia School of Orthodontics (GSO) announced Thursday the recipients of complimentary orthodontic care at GSO's grand opening and ribbon cutting event.
"We reviewed hundreds of nomination entries and after thoughtful deliberation, chose three children who truly inspired us and whose stories touched our hearts.

The recipients are:
- Eli Apted - Conyers, Ga

GSO will provide the recipients any necessary orthodontic work including braces, retainers, surgeries and more at no cost. GSO will also provide the children who were nominated but not selected with a $500 reduction in the cost of their orthodontic treatment.
The Georgia School of Orthodontics is now accepting patients. All patients will have access to GSO's state-of-the art technology, like the CS 3600 intraoral scanner, which eliminates goopy impressions and awkward intraoral photos and features greater accuracy and speed for the orthodontic residents. GSO is the first orthodontic school in the nation with this technology.
Patients will receive high quality care at an affordable price. The practicing doctors are licensed dentists seeking specialty training in orthodontics and are overseen by board-certified faculty. The Georgia School of Orthodontics' presence in Georgia will address a critical need for orthodontists and affordable care in the region.
