Emma White wants to create smiles that you won’t want to hide. A former English & Drama teacher, Emma is these days the Founder and CEO of an innovative and brilliantly simply business called OMU. Taking orthodontics (braces) and dental hygiene into schools, OMU stands for Orthodontic Mobile Unit. Experience running their Open Wide dental practice led to three lightbulb moments. Lightbulb moment #1 was when Emma realised that dental surgeries were not always a comfortable place for children and decided to “change things up a bit”. She introduced “Open Wide Days” just for kids. “All the kids that come to us enjoy coming to see the dentist. Balloons, face painting, they can dress up. We talk teeth and nutrition. It’s a fun time. A really good thing”. Lightbulb moment #2 was when her dentist husband Ben noticed that many parents and children arriving at the practice were often stressed. Having to collect children from school, traffic, permission from the school itself – all for a 10 minute appointment. Their idea – literally, to take the practice to the school. They bought a bus, fitted it out as a full on mobile surgery, painted it bright and hit the road. “Schools love it, parents love it and the kids are happy and relaxed”. Their Teeth Academy (lightbulb moment #3) provides free workshops to the schools, educating and informing the children around dental hygiene and normalising braces in a relaxed and cool way. Emma’s passion for her work shines almost as bright as her smile in this whiter than white episode.
