It is a truth universally acknowledged that nothing is cuter than children's art.
If you've been to our offices lately, you may have noticed that we like kids' art so much that we're providing special sheets to draw on-- and that, furthermore, until February 2014, everyone who submits a drawing of her or his dentist will be entered into a monthly raffle as part of the first ever CHESTNUT DENTAL ART FAIR.
Every month, we'll randomly select one portrait from each office to win a $25 American Express gift card; those winners will automatically be entered into a contest in the spring to win even COOLER prizes. (We love art from everybody, but art from the households of Chestnut Dental employees are not eligible to win.) We'll also be showcasing galleries of our young patients' amazing art in our offices and on our Facebook, so get ready!
Chestnut Dental Art Fair: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
1) How do I enter my child's art in the CDA Art Fair?
Fill out the necessary information on the back of the entry form / drawing sheet and give the signed form to the Front Desk staff. Alternately, you can email a scan of your signed entry form (front and back) to email@example.com or mail the signed entry form to our Needham office at

You can find entry forms / drawing sheets in the pediatric waiting areas and hygiene rooms of our Franklin and Needham offices, OR you can download the form here. (Remember to print it front-and-back!)
2) What prizes are you giving out, and how often?
Every month, we will award one $25 gift card to a winner from each office. At the end of Art Fair (in March), we will award a Kindle Fire to our grand-prize winner and a $100 American Express gift card to our second-place winner.
3) How will I know if I win?
If you win, we will contact you at the phone and email address you provided on your entry form; we will also announce the winners on the Chestnut Dental Facebook! Only winners will be directly notified, and the Front Desk staff will not be able to answer any questions about who has or has not won.
4) How will you decide the winner?
The monthly raffle winner will be drawn randomly from all the entries submitted to a particular office during the given month. Our big grand-prize winners will be decided by popular vote on the Chestnut Dental Facebook in the spring.
5) How many times can I enter?
Each child can only be entered to win once per month, but we welcome all the art you want to offer!
6) My child drew a picture of her/his dentist, but not on an official entry form. Can I still enter it?
Definitely! Please scan the art and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org with an explicit statement of your permission for Chestnut Dental to display your child's art. Alternately, you can submit the art in person or by mail, but the art must be accompanied by a permission statement. Art that is not accompanied by a permission statement will not be entered in the Art Fair.
7) What will happen to my child's art?
We aren't able to return submitted entries, but we will give them a good home! By entering the raffle, you give CDA permission to display your child's art in our offices or online.
8) What personal information will you display along with my child's art?
Only the first name, last initial, and age of the artist, plus the name of the rendered dentist. :)
