Orthodontist Awards Free Braces at Last Weekend's Condors Game
Grand prize the culmination of an 18-month-long car-magnet contest
By: Thurman Orthodontics
The contest, which began in January 2015, was simple and quite fun for the participants. When staff members of the practice, including Dr. Michael Thurman himself, would drive around Bakersfield and spot a car with the magnet, they would take a picture of the car. These images were then periodically uploaded to the practice's Facebook page where people could "claim" their car. Judging from the Facebook comments, it was clear that people were always excited to know they'd been spotted around town with the magnet. People whose cars were claimed were then entered into a raffle. They had the chance to win monthly prizes, such as Amazon gift cards, and were also entered in the grand-prize raffle to win free braces.
"We see our practice as part of our community, and a big way people get involved in their communities today is through social media," Dr. Thurman said. "We loved running this contest because we could join people together and get them really excited about winning something valuable that would change their life—a beautiful smile. For us at the practice, we had a lot of fun spotting our stickers around town."

The practice strives to exceed expectations in every way possible by providing the best service in a fun and rewarding office atmosphere.
