Dental Health Month Contest - February 2017

Blast from the Past Contest - January 2017
With the new year upon us, we were feeling a little nostalgic — so, we decided to have some fun with a contest that was a blast from the past. We posted a list of the “Best Kids Movies of All Times”, and patients were challenged to match the movie title to the year the film was released.
We had two movie buffs match 13 of the 14 movies correctly. Congratulations go to Derik Abbey (pictured at the top) and Ben Orlosky. Each winner received four movie tickets to Regal Cinemas for a night at the movies!

Autumn Acorn Contest - November 2016
Falling acorns are a sure sign that autumn has arrived, so we decided to make them the feature of our Autumn Contest. Patients were challenged to guess the correct number of acorns in the jar, and our winner, Joshua Schucker, did an amazing job. His guess of 720 was just four away from the actual number. As our winner, Joshua took home a $25 Dick’s Sporting Goods gift card!
So how much do you know about acorns? Here’s some fun acorn trivia . . .
- The older the tree gets, the more acorns it will produce because the tree must save up enough energy and resources to develop the fruit.
- Once an acorn falls to the ground, it has less than a 1 in 10,000 chance of growing into an oak tree.
Halloween Contest - October 2016
It just wouldn’t be Halloween without the traditional candy corn, so we put them in a jar and challenged our patients to guess the total number of treats inside. Congratulations go to Sophia Sotirakos whose guess of 900 came closest to the actual number of candy corn in the jar. As our winner, she received a $25 gift card to Regal Cinemas for a night at the movies!
Wondering how close your guess was? The actual number of treats in the jar = 913.
Remember to trade in those sticky, chewy treats for some braces-friendly alternatives to avoid breakage to your braces!

It just wouldn’t be summer without trips to the beach, strolls on the boardwalk, and memories of caramel corn and salt water taffy. While those gooey, chewy summertime treats are off-limits to those in braces, there’s no reason why we couldn’t have some fun with them during this year’s Summer Contest!

Fishing Frenzy Contest - June 2016
With the fishing season upon us, Dr. Godwin and fishing fans everywhere were suiting up, grabbing their tackle, and hitting the water for some good old fishing fun! We thought it was a great time to have some fishing fun of our own, so we kicked off our Fishing Frenzy Contest. Lucky for you, a fishing license wasn’t needed to join in the fun. All you had to do was take a guess at the number of phony fish in the jar. Congratulations go to our winner, Jenna Pullen. With a great guess of 1738, Jenna came closest the actual number of fish in the jar. As our winner, she received a $25 gift card to Dick's Sporting Goods!
