Taking Braces Off for a Decade – Dr. Panucci and Beach Braces

Patient lends talent in video heralding Beach Braces’ 10th year in business

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE 24 July 2015

On August 10, Dr. Patricia J. Panucci will mark the 10th anniversary of the day she realized her childhood dream and officially opened her Manhattan Beach-based practice, Beach Braces. At that time, city leaders, the Beach Braces staff and several members of the local dental community celebrated the fledgling business with a ribbon cutting ceremony and best wishes for a successful future.

Since that day Dr. Panucci has provided new smiles to nearly 4,000 patients, including 12-year-old Leah H., who recently lent her vocal talents to an animated video Dr. Panucci created as a fun way to celebrate the practice’s first decade in business.

The video, aptly titled “Braces Off,” is the result of a collaboration that initially consisted of Dr. Panucci and her husband, who started by re-writing the lyrics of the number one hit single by pop sensation Taylor Swift titled “Shake It Off.” Once the lyrics were completed, Dr. Panucci called upon the Seattle-based creative agency J. Media Inc. to create the animation and incorporate the new lyrics into the production. Leah, who still had her braces on at the time of her recording session at Dr. Panucci’s makeshift studio in the Beach Braces consultation room, is now all smiles after having her own braces off about a month later. Leah is not the only star of the production, however; watch and listen closely and you’ll see how Dr. Panucci also gets in on the act, debuting her original rap regarding Gummy Bears.


On a serious note, Dr. Panucci extends her thanks to the families she’s served over the last decade, as well as the entire South Bay community for their continued support of her practice. Dr. Panucci always says everyone should love to smile, and she and her team are looking forward to many more years of helping patients put their best smile forward.

In addition to expressing gratitude to her patients and her community, Dr. Panucci wishes to offer a special thanks to Taylor Swift for inspiring the creation of the video – she and her patients are big fans!

Dr. Panucci is renowned as one of Southern California’s premier orthodontic specialists. The top priority at Beach Braces is to offer families the best quality care with cutting-edge technology and the most advanced techniques available so that patients of all ages can smile with confidence. By providing patients with great personal care and employing state-of-of-the-art procedures as they have for the past decade, the team at Beach Braces will continue to offer the the highest quality service for years to come.
