Congratulations to Abby Rodgers, who was recently named Miss Philadelphia’s Outstanding Teen for 2013!

Abby, a junior at Saint Basil Academy and an orthodontic patient of Dr. Appel’s, won the contest based on several factors: public speaking and support of a cause (bullying prevention and self-esteem), fitness, talent (in Abby’s case, vocal talent), and poise and beauty—which includes the beautiful pageant smile Abby got with the help of Dr. Appel!

The nationwide Miss America Outstanding Teen program is designed “to encourage and reward the talent, communication skills, community service, and academic achievement of girls between 13 and 17 years of age.”

Abby will compete in the Miss Pennsylvania’s Outstanding Teen pageant in June. Here’s wishing her all the best from Appel Orthodontics—where outstanding teens get outstanding smiles!
