About the Quarterly Draw
At You Make Me Smile Dental Centre, the team takes great pride in the quality of their dental work and the reputation they have built in the community. They truly care about the level of patient care they provide and when a patient refers a friend or family member to them, they feel that you are paying them the highest compliment.
Each quarter, our referring patients from the past 3 months will be entered in a raffle to win a big prize.
Our team is constantly changing the type of prizes they offer in order to offer you exciting and different rewards as you continue to refer your friends and family to our office. The more often you leave us a 5-star Google Review and you refer someone to our office, the more chances you have at winning a prize.
Smile of the Month!
The road to a winning smile requires excellent teamwork. At You Make Me Smile, we consider the patient as a team member.
Congrats to Judith K!
Our Smile of the Month
In recognition of our very best patients, we have developed the SMILE OF THE MONTH PROGRAM. The rules are simple; each month we keep track of all patients who have an excellent oral hygiene, excellent cooperation and show a great attitude towards their treatment/appointment.
Needless to say, many of our patients have a perfect attitude. So, at the end of each month, we randomly select one patient from the list of the best we had to be SMILE OF THE MONTH. As a token of our appreciation, the winner receives a gift basket filled with local products (value of 150$). Also, these patients can rest assured that they will soon be the proud owner of a beautiful smile and healthy bite…the best reward of all!
