Our patients and staff love Halloween, so we thought a few years ago, ‘how can we engage the two?’ – Dr. Comella
Rochester Area Dentists Take Halloween Festivities to The Next Level
Comella Orthodontics challenged local dental offices to a Pumpkin Decorating Contest. The rules are simple, participating offices received a pumpkin to decorate, and patients voted on their favorite pumpkin design.
(No carving allowed!) Over 30 offices submitted pumpkins for the competition; from Victor to Gates, and all points in between. All of the entries were on display in the waiting room of the Brighton office for patients to enjoy through the end of October.
The competition received some extremely creative entries, which were voted on by patients of Comella Orthodontics. There is a pumpkin decorated to support breast cancer awareness, several based on the movie “Frozen,” a witch, an elephant, a pig, and many more amazing creations. The winning office will be treated to lunch by Dr. Comella at the restaurant of their choice.
Dr. Comella started this contest six years ago and participation has increased each year. This year, the number of participating offices was twice that of last Halloween.
“Our patients and staff love Halloween, so we thought a few years ago, ‘how can we engage the two?’” said Dr. Comella. “We thought this would be a very social, fun and interactive way for other offices and our patients to get involved in Halloween, and the kids and adults love it.”
