ANNUAL YMCA PATIENT PARTY
Dr. Ted & Dr. Lyndsey McCaskey and their staff celebrate National Dental Health Month each February by hosting "Beat the Winter Blues" parties for patients and their friends. The YMCA's in Butler and Grove City have provided great venues for the staff to interact with the children and their families beyond the office environment. The patients and their friends can play basketball and volleyball, enjoy swimming, use the game rooms and play bingo and relay games. As a special treat, Dr. Ted and Dr. Lyndsey provide pizza, chips, pretzels and drinks for all who attend. When you become a patient, remember to watch for the announcement of the "Beat the Winter Blues" parties so you can sign up and bring a friend!
McCaskey Orthodontics has many other contests throughout the year in an attempt to keep our patients involved and to make their experiences in our office fun. The staff has a great time with these contests too!
We offer several social media contests throughout the year including our annual Flat McFroggy contest in summer, our Holiday Ornament contest in winter & our #shareyoursmile selfie contest! These contests provide our patients to win fun prizes like iPads, iPad minis & even Apple Watches!! Check out our Facebook & Instagram pages to see all of our past participants!
Patients can also participate in our various monthly in-office contests. Usually, the winners of these contests receive cash or giftcards. We are all big sports fans at McCaskey Orthodontics, so some of our winning prizes are tickets to Pirate, Penguin and Steeler games! These contests are as much fun for us as they are for the patients as we enjoy seeing how engaged they are in their visits to our office!
TEACHER OF THE YEAR CONTEST
Before Dr. Ted McCaskey became an orthodontist, he was a highschool biology teacher and football & basketball coach. Because of his previous career, McCaskey Orthodontics has a great appreciation for those individuals who dedicate their lives to educating our youth. Each year, we hold an essay contest for patients to write about their favorite teacher and describe the impact that teacher has imparted. The teacher written about in the winning essay receives $200 to spend in his or her classroom!
Good oral hygiene is of utmost importance when a patient is in orthodontic treatment. When a patient is in active orthodontic treatment, we encourage him or her to maintain good oral hygiene. One of the ways we do this is through our hygiene contest. Each time a patient comes to our office for a regularly scheduled appointment, he or she has the opportunity to receive two entries to our hygiene contest. If a patient has brushed and flossed properly, he or she will receive an entry. A second ticket will be awarded if a patient has taken good care of his or her appliances. A patient can also receive an entry to the contest if he or she brings a business card from the dentist stating the date of his or her most recent exam and cleaning. Every month, one of the tickets is pulled from all the entries and that patient receives a prize! This contest motivates many of our patients to brush and floss well and to keep their six month appointments with their regular dentists.
