Contests, Prizes and Parties
We want each kiddo to look forward to his or her visit with us. We want them to remember the fun, not the dental work!

Christmas Party 2018
We had such an amazing time at this year’s Christmas Party! We got together at Dr. Kasia’s home under a Christmas tree. Malgosia had it catered for us so we were able to relax with all the yummy food and fun gifts. Secret Santa was good to us and our famous White Elephant game gave us some major case of laughs! This year we decided to dress up in our best holiday Ugly Sweaters and spread holiday cheer that way. We even had a contest. Who do you think should have won??? Last, but not least, we finally figured out who actually has a good voice and can carry a tune with our karaoke party. Songs were sung loud and clear! In three different languages… Such a fun time getting together for the holidays! Merry Christmas and Happy New year to all our patients!
