Forbidden Zone Halloween Contest - October 2022
It just wouldn't be Halloween without candy treats, so we put them in our Forbidden Zone Jar and challenged you to guess the total number of sticky, chewy treats inside. With an amazing guess of 307, Maddy Saltzer guessed the exact number of treats in the jar. As our winner, she received a $35 Amazon gift card for some fun online shopping.
Halloween is always a tricky time for patients in braces. As tempting as those chewy, gooey candy treats may be, patients wearing braces and other orthodontic appliances need to steer clear of those in our Forbidden Zone Jar. Of course, you can still enjoy Halloween and all the fun it brings. If you still have some treats lurking around, remember to trade those sticky, chewy candies for braces-friendly options like chocolate or other melt-in-your mouth goodies & don't forget to brush and floss to protect your teeth!

Salt Water Taffy Summer Contest - August 2022
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!
Patients were challenged to guess the number of salt water taffy in the jar. While many patients came close, we had one patient guess the exact number of taffy in the jar. Congratulations go to Jack Gwin!. As our winner, Jack received a $20 Rita's gift card!
Actual number of Taffy in the jar......247.

All you had to do was take a guess at the number of phony fish in the jar.
Congratulations go to our winner, Joshua Y. With a great guess of 1829, Josh came closest the actual number of fish in the jar. As our winner, Josh took home a $25 gift card to Dick’s Sporting Goods for some sports gear of his own!
