Floss Like a BOSS Challenge- September 2018! 

We LOVE flossing! It is such an important part of having good hygiene. There is no better time than the present to start a new habit. The Floss Challenge is a pledge to floss EVERY DAY for 30 days. Patients took the pledge by:
-Choosing a social sign and snapping a photo holding the sign. 
-Then, posting the photo to their Facebook or Instagram account.
Everyone who participated were entered in to a raffle to win tickets to the movie theater to see SMALL FOOT! We were excited that so many of our patients and parents took the challenge. We know so many people gained a great new habit.

Teacher Supply Cake Giveaway

In March we held a contest on our Facebook and Instagram page. We asked our followers to vote for their favorite teacher to receive a teacher supply cake to help get them through the rest of the school year. The response was overwhelming! There were a bunch of teachers nominated, but in the end only one teacher could win. The teacher who had the most votes was Ms. Salaz who is a fourth grade teacher at Martin Luther King Jr. Elementary School in Rio Rancho. We will definitely be doing this again!


February 2018 National Kids Oral Hygiene Awareness Month

February is National Kids Oral Hygiene Awareness Month. To celebrate, we went to St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic school as well as Cielo Azul Elementary school. Our staff did a learning lecture with the kids on how to have proper oral hygiene. The kids loved it! They were able to ask questions, watch demos, and even do hands on experiments back at their classroom that demonstrated why they should brush, floss, and use fluoride.

We always want to make sure our patients are having fun and creating memories while in the office. We created a photo booth station to take pictures with lots of holiday props.

All you had to do was play the game, 'Do You Know Dr. Hughes', and you were entered in to win this sweet prize!
