At our orthodontic office, we’re constantly working to try to keep the treatment process interesting and fun for our patients. One of the ways we do that is by hosting different contests for our patients to participate in, usually 4-5 each year. We’ve come up with some pretty fun stuff before—“Take your doctor on vacation” (our version of Flat Stanley), a t-shirt design contest, and summer postcard contests, just to name a few. One of the best was called “Pick My Nose” in which all the doctors and staff took impressions of our noses and made stone casts out of them, and we then asked our patients to match the stone nose model to the correct doctor or staff. Kind of out there, but fun nonetheless!
