Our annual Tooth-Tastic Open Day has been and gone yet we are still buzzing from the event! Saturday 5th September 2015 we opened our doors to a day of craft making, tooth dazzling, and prize giving fun!
Oral Wellness Checks
Ellen and Shenae were kept busy meeting lots of children and giving an oral wellness check. The children were given a ride in the dental chair, their teeth were counted and parents could ask for advice on their child’s dental routine.
Adults also had an opportunity to have a free oral wellness check with Bryan or Haytham. This involved a quick look around the mouth, an oral cancer check, gum score and photos. They also had the chance to ask for free dental advice.
Father’s Day Craft
While the kids were waiting for their turn to see Ellen or Shenae they were busy making a molar-ific father’s day card for dad! Dads we are sure would have been impressed by the glitter filled creations!
Our beautiful tooth fairy Brittany was well sought after as well. She was as beautiful as ever and was seen handing out balloons and helping at the craft table.
Starlight Children’s Foundation
As part of our event we were raising money for the Starlight Children’s Foundation, a charity worth its weight in gold as it helps seriously ill children through their treatment, making their experience as fun as possible. After all, laughter is the best medicine! We had our girls out at our information stand collecting money for the foundation, raising $105.50 on the day. Bryan Lee then decided he would more than double the donation overall raising $450.00.
Competitions and Prizes Galore!
Father’s Day competition – We had some really interesting and entertaining entries into our Father’s Day competition! We asked the kids to tell us why they had the best Dad in the world to go into the running for a Kart World gift voucher. Well Done to Oscar who has a really awesome dad that plays all kinds of fun games with him!
Colouring Competition – Our windows were filled with talented art work for the weeks leading up to and after the day! It was certainly a hard decision for Bryan to make to choose just 4 winners. Well done to Emma and Carla in the over 7 years category and to Olivia and Samina in the under 7 years.
Participation Prizes – Everyone that took the opportunity to have an oral wellness check went into the running for a prize. Prizes ranged from an iPad air to gift vouchers from our surrounding shops. Congratulations to all our winners.
A big thank you to the shops in the centre that donated prizes. Duncraig Fresh IGA , Eyes on Optometrist , K’Sara Fashion Boutique, alive Medi Spa , meat@marri rd. and Farmhouse Fresh. As always the support of those around us is important. We hope our winners enjoy their prizes as much as we enjoy your products.
