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!

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!
