Christmas Candy Cane Contest - December 2020
Everyone knows that candy canes and the holidays go hand in hand. That’s why we decided to make them the theme of this year’s holiday contest.

Autumn Acorn Contest - November 2020
Falling acorns are a sure sign that Autumn has arrived, so we decided to make them the feature of our Autumn contest! To enter our Autumn contest, patients were challenged to guess the number of acorns in the jar for a chance to win a $25 gift card!
Congratulations go to our winner, CLAIRE DALLING, whose guess of 578 came closest to the actual number of acorns in the jar. As our winner, Claire took home a $25 Target gift card. Way to go, Claire!
Halloween Contest - October 2020
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 entry of 338, Callie Raymond was just three away from 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 items like those in our Forbidden Zone Jar. Of course, you can still enjoy Halloween and all the fun it brings. If you still have some Halloween 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 & floss to protect your teeth!
Back-to-School Brain Teaser Contest - Sept. 2020
With schools back in session, it was time for patients to put on their thinking caps! This year’s Back-to-School Brain Teaser contest featured the simple, yet handy writing tool... The Pencil. Writing apparatus have come and gone, but the trusty pencil has stood the test of time. In fact, historians have traced back the invention of the pencil to the mid 1600’s.
Congratulations go to our winner, Jack Maynard whose entry of 156 was just one away from the actual number of pencils in the jar. As our winner, Jack took home a $20 Best Buy gift card. Way to go, Jack!
Fill Our Pool For Back To School Raffle - Sept. 2020

Seashell Summer Contest - August 2020
Ahh, Summer . . . Don’t you just love it! There’s nothing better than sand between your toes, soaking up the sun, or collecting seashells by the seashore. We collected some seashells of our own, put them in a jar, and made them the theme of our summer contest! Congratulations to our winner of our Summer Seashell Contest whose guess of 256 came closest to actual number of seashells in the jar. Our winner, Julia, received a $25 Rita’s gift card for some cool summertime treats!
Take Me Out To The Ballgame Contest - June 2020
With the baseball season in full swing, we decided to hold our Take Me Out To The Ballgame Contest. As the well-known baseball song goes, it just wouldn’t be baseball without peanuts and cracker jacks, so we made peanuts the theme of our Spring Contest.
Congratulations go to Joey Gross. With a great entry of 838, Joey came closest to the actual number of peanuts in the jar. As our winner, he took home a $35 gift card to Dick’s Sporting Goods for some great sports gear of his own.
Wondering how close you came? The actual number of peanuts in the jar was 861!

Congratulatons go to our winner, Brynn Radeke, whose name was randomly chosen from all those who entered. As our winner, Brynn received a $35 Amazon gift card for some online shopping.
