Eddie the Yeti

One night after work, Dr. John discovered a white furry creature rummaging through the dumpster of the office complex. After luring the beast into the office with a trail of Rice Krispy treats, Eddie the Yeti was quickly adopted as the office mascot. He got braces and became our official spokes person. Since then, Eddie has become a local celebrity. Eddie attends events and promotes Pobanz Orthodontics encouraging all in the community to smile more. Events that Eddie makes regular appearances at:

  • Ogden Marathon Kids K
  • Dentistry Merit badge classes regularly held at Pobanz Orthodontics
  • Fifth Grade Field trips regularly held at Pobanz Orthodontics
  • Mouthguard clinics for all interested local sports teams
  • Our yearly Corn Maze patient appreciation event held in October
