Fun, Prizes & Events

Whew! Man, this summer is a scorcher! Sometimes we need something ice cold, flavorful, and tasty to help subdue the heat that’s dragging us down. Heads up Wakham & McMurphy orthodontic patients! Check out our ice cold cabinet that we have for the summer time. Ask Dr. Wakham, Dr. McMurphy, or any of their most wonderful and caring staff if you need a flavorful tasty item for your sore teeth next time you come to see us. Hope everybody is having a great summer, getting plenty of rest, and watching lots of Netflix. We’ll see you soon at your next appointment.


Dr. Brice McMurphy, a Biloxi native, will be acquiring Wakham Orthodontics and joining our team in August! You’ll soon be seeing his smiling face and enthusiastic personality in both Biloxi and Ocean Springs offices. 

Dr. McMurphy, alongside Dr. Dean Wakham, will continue creating beautiful smiles along our Mississippi Gulf Coast as Wakham & McMurphy Orthodontics!! 

What are we doing? We took a few hours away from treating our patients today for basic CPR recertification. Yes, orthodontic offices need to be prepared. We refreshed our skills on how to handle the ABCs (airway, breathing, and circulation) of CPR (cardiopulmonary resuscitation). It was a fun morning and a good continuing education course. We are all better prepared to handle an unexpected cardiac emergency!

We hope all of the students at Our Lady of Fatima Elementary School will enjoy the freeze pops donated by Wakham & McMurphy Orthodontics & have a fun-filled day attending your Field Day today.

Two handsome guys. Father (Johnny) and son (Jacob). Jacob just finished orthodontic treatment and Johnny finished orthodontic treatment last year. Both guys were great patients. Smiles for a lifetime!

Special Announcement for our Patients in High School 

It is a pleasure that we have Sunna Savani as a patient in our orthodontic practice. She is currently a sophomore at University of Alabama at Birmingham.  Sunna is a high achiever and has a record of superior performance in her education and in scoring exceptionally well on the ACT.  Sunna scored a perfect 36.  I asked Sunna if she could share her knowledge and her study techniques on how to do your best on the ACT.  She has accepted our invitation to share her wisdom with our patients that are high school students.  Sunna will give a presentation on Saturday, December 16, 2017 at our Biloxi office from   10 am to 1 pm for our patients in high school. 

Please let us know as soon as possible and at least one week prior to Saturday, December 16, 2017, if you are interested in this ACT review session, so we can reserve a seat for you. There is no charge for this presentation and I’m sure it will be very informative.  Refreshments will be provided.

The lifetime risk of getting breast cancer is 1 in 8. Although it’s the second leading cause of cancer death for American women, its death rate is much lower (1 in 28) thanks to early detection. Early detection is crucial to catching the cancer, treatment and survival. We support the efforts of all those involved in research and prevention. Wear pink this month as much as possible to help bring awareness to this important cause!


It’s our month to celebrate! The month of October is National Orthodontic Health Month. We feel very blessed to work in this wonderful profession and we send a special thank you to all of the patients we have had the opportunity to make “SMILE” since we’ve been in business. Help us celebrate this month by telling any of your friends or family who could benefit from orthodontic treatment to come in for an evaluation, and be sure they tell us that you sent them. Happy NOHM!

Mole Day was created as a way to foster interest in chemistry. Schools around the world will celebrate today with various activities. The day commemorates Avogadro’s Number (6.02 x 1023), which is a basic measuring unit in chemistry. For a given molecule, one mole is a mass (in grams) whose number is equal to the atomic mass of the molecule. Feeling smarter yet?

Happy Mole Day!


One evening during a violent thunderstorm a mother was tucking her son into bed. She was about to turn off the light when he asked with a tremor in his voice, 'Mommy, will you sleep with me tonight?' The mother smiled and gave him a reassuring hug. 'I can't dear,' she said. 'I have to sleep in Daddy's room.' A long silence was broken at last by his shaky little voice; 'The big sissy.'… anonymous
