Boones Ferry Dental Sponsors Candy Corn Counting Contest

Boones Ferry Dental in Lake Oswego, Ore. sponsors candy corn counting contest for new and existing patients.


Lake Oswego, OR -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/05/2015 -- New and existing patients of Boones Ferry Dental can enter a contest to win a Sonicare electric toothbrush. The contest runs from Oct. 1 to Oct. 31. To enter the contest, the patient must have an appointment for a cleaning. Then, patients can take a guess as to how many candy corns are in the container. The winner, who will be announced on Nov. 1, is the patient who comes closest to the correct number.

Dr. Patrick Morrissey of Boones Ferry Dental recommends Sonicare electric toothbrushes because they do a thorough job of cleaning teeth. This type of toothbrush not only scrubs plaque and debris off teeth, but also works to clean dental plaque in areas where the tips of the bristles don't even touch.

It rotates at a speed of up to 31,000 brush strokes per minute, which enables it to remove up to two times more plaque than brushing with a traditional toothbrush, cleaning deeply between teeth and along the gumline. It has an angled brush area that makes it easy to reach the back teeth. Sonicare is safe to use on braces and dental restorations, such as fillings, crowns and veneers. It improves gum health and even helps to remove and reduce stains on teeth for a whiter smile. The design is ergonomic, making it easy to handle. It is battery-operated and rechargeable. The toothbrushes usually have a timer on them, so patients know exactly how long they have brushed. They retail for about $100.

In short, the Sonicare electric toothbrush cleans teeth more thoroughly and in less time than using a traditional toothbrush.

"At Boones Ferry Dental value our patients and we want them to have the healthiest teeth possible. That's why we are giving away a free Sonicare toothbrush," said Dr. Morrissey. "But we also like to have a bit of fun and celebrate the fall season. We hope all of our patients will make an appointment and come in to guess how many candy corns are in the jar!"
