    The toothbrush cursor is extremely annoying. The animations are cute, if a little distracting...but they advertise the dentist's specialty, so are an exception to the rule. The only really bad thing is that, because it is an entirely Flash site, text is not resizable. I will say, this is one Flash site that I really like, because Flash was used to enhance the purpose, not just because it's cool or pretty.

    Text is legible for users with good eyesight....not for users with poor eyesight (You'll see me comment about this in a lot of posts, first, accessiblity for all should be important in all websites, and second, it is a personal issue as I have two family members with poor eyesight, and one of them is legally blind and uses a screen reader and screen readers read html, not flash).Toothbrush is huge....and huge, kind of overpowering.

    Ahhh...here we go. jyuill, I am legally blind and I found the text hard to read, so thanks for bringing that up. The typeface of the text isn't too bad but the line spacing is too small. Makes it kind of blur into one. I would really be changing that curser as well. Very annoying. If you made it normal size the toothbrush would be fine.
    Nice site, but beware of 100% flash websites - accessbility can be a problem. But a good design.

    Thanks all. I made the tooth brush smaller, and the text in about us larger.

    Thanks again

    This is off target for branding. You pitch braces for adults in copy and Nickelodeon in style.

    Adults are put off by this. Kids don't shop for dentists.

    The site isn't positioned well for the product being talked about. Branding is not whatever the client says. Nor is it any whim a designer may have. Branding happens in the minds of a target audience, and this isn't taking that audience into account. This causes "brand dissonance," where there is a message-to-market mismatch.

    Well, I think the the main target is kids, but they offer it to adults as well. I guess the orthodontist will let me know if potential clients say it's bad and maybe it'll be changed. But there's no way to know if they're put off by it till someone says something.

    If you think the branding isn't good. What would you do to make it better?
