About "Braces Friendly Eats" by Collins Orthodontics
When Malia prepped for clear braces treatment at Collins Orthodontics, she shared her plan with us. Her meal plan! She jumped on the internet, found the foods perfect for her first week in braces, and prepped them before ever sitting back in our chair at Collins Orthodontics. 
The result? Collins Orthodontics presents Braces Friendly Eats featuring Malia Howe—healthy foods you’ll love that won’t irritate your smile while you start your treatment.

Meet Malia
Say hello to mom, blogger and (surprise!) ninja in the kitchen, Malia Howe. She never had braces before and recently decided she was ready for the perfect smile. And she didn’t have to look far for the right orthodontist, Dr. Grant Collins, a family friend. Together they decided to bring these tasty, smile-friendly eats to patients everywhere.
