We have several contests throughout the year and give our patients many opportunities to win great prizes like gift certificates to Target or Walmart, movie passes, Nintendo DS Lite, PSP, an iPod and many more. We have contests that anyone can enter like drawing pictures for our yearly calendar, sending us postcards during summer vacations, sending us pictures of your pets, counting beans or candy in a jar... and many other contests too numerous to mention.

Current Contests


Good Co-operation Contest - at each appointment the patient has a chance to enter this by having good oral hygiene and no breakage- their name is put into a fishbowl and every two months we draw a name out and that person wins a $100.00 VISA Credit Card.

POG Pizza Party - every pre-orthodontic patient is entered into this contest and once every 3 months a winner is chosen to have a Pizza Party at Marcello’s Restaurant and they can invite 10 friends to attend along with their family.

Facebook Check In - anyone that shows one of our Team Members that they have checked in on Facebook while at our office it entered into a monthly drawing for a $25.00 gift certificate to Applebees.

Recommend a Friend - every time a patient refers one of their friends or co-workers to our office we send them a thank you note and include 2 movie tickets to the Regal Cinemas. Once a year we have a Grand Prize winner and they receive a Prize totaling around $600.00.

Summer Selfie contest - patients submit a selfie on our Facebook page and enter one of three categories - Funniest, Taken from the Farthest Distance, Why they love Cantor & Team Orthodontics - each category has a winner of $150.00 in cash
