Win a Truly MAGICAL TRIP TO DISNEYLAND PARIS!
At our practice we also hold children’s events 4 times a year; February, April, August and October. Each event is enthralled with exciting themes to ignite the imagination:
- Calling All Superheroes in February
- Easter Eggstravaganza in April
- Time to shine, Its Summertime! August
- Happy Halloween! October – where things get a little cutesy not spooks’y, No scaring allowed!
Our intention is to try and get as many children to get into the regular routine of coming to the dentist to improve oral health. To educate youngsters is the key to changing society’s viewpoint on visiting the dentist. At Obex our passion is working with young people and the community and we are committed to making the experience of the dentist fun and less scary and build positive memories which will last a lifetime!Our next Disneyland Paris competition is taking place in October 2018.
During our Children’s events we have competitions where the best fancy dressed could win a prize and our more creative children could win some vouchers in our colouring competitions. The ultimate prize for one of our lucky patients is receiving a once in a lifetime trip to Disneyland Paris! This competition runs during our Superheroes event in February and our Halloween event in October.
Our events always fall on school holidays so coming to the dentist never has to effect children’s precious attendance figures during school term times. We also open later in the evenings and on Saturdays to accommodate the busy lifestyle of the 21st century family!
Previous winners’ stories
April 2017 Winner - Erin NeillHemel Smile Studio, Bennetts End
Dentist - Shamir Shah
We are extremely proud to announce this February’s prize draw winner as Erin Neill, aged 11. Erin has said that she screamed a lot when they got the phone call. They were actually at a friend’s birthday party when they got the call and Erin has been excitedly telling everyone that she has won.
Erin, along with her mum and dad, are booked in for their trip during the October Half Term holiday and have also added a couple of extra days so they can all visit the Eiffel Tower and other sights in Paris while they are there.
Erin said “I’m so excited to be going to Disney land Paris, when mum told me I had won I started screaming, I’m looking forward to going on the Ratatouille – Recipe for Adventure 4D ride, seeing Sleeping Beauty’s Castle and going to the Forest of Enchantment with Merida, Baloo, Tarzan, Rapunzel and Pocahontas telling tales in the form of a fantastic ‘Disney Musical Adventure’”
February 2017 winners blog - Thomas VeyresDarrell House Dental Practice
Dentist - Pavit Sehmi
We would like to thank The Darrell House Dental Practice and Obex Dental for a fantastic break in Disneyland Paris. We were very surprised when we received the phone call announcing that Thomas was the lucky winner. Our thanks also extend to our travel agent as she worked really hard to find us the best deals possible at the most convenient times to us.
We then spent an amazing two days in Disneyland Paris. The boys finally met Mickey Mouse, which was the highlight of the trip, and also managed to do most of the child friendly rides in the park. Our favorite ones were “It’s a Small World” and “Peter Pan” which really gave us the impression of flying high up in the sky. Our tickets gave us access to both the Disney Adventure Park and Disney Studios, so we also popped over to the Studios and visited the Toy Story area and enjoyed a ride on “Slinky dog”. On the way out we were stopped by a Star Wars Stormtrooper parade but we made it out in the end safely without the need for any Rebel assistance…..
We also tried a number of scary rides such as the “Thunder mountain” rollercoaster and the “Tower of Terror” which provided lots of “chilling” fun!
Our half board allowed us to use our dinner/lunch voucher in restaurants around the park so we had lovely meals at the Agrabah Café which also offered many vegetarian/vegan options.
We will remember and cherish the many pleasant moments from this Disneyland Paris family trip for years to come. These are memories which the boys will indeed treasure for a long time.
