5. Prizes and Odds. One Grand Prize Winner will receive a "Contemporary Smile Makeover" (valued up to $10,000). Candidates will be selected based on their video submission, the dental treatment necessary, and their friends’ and families’ enthusiasm. The selection process will be conducted by a committee formed by Contemporary Family Dentistry. Five finalist candidates will be selected. The 5 Finalist candidates will be notified, at which time the candidates will be asked to come in for a preliminary exam by Dr. Henderson. The examination may require a complete medical history, clinical examination, and x-rays. The examination will be performed at no cost to the candidate. If the examination is consistent with the video submission and is deemed to be in the scope of practice of Dr. Henderson, the candidate will go on to the next round of the contest. The remaining candidates’ video submissions will then be re-posted. Selection of the winner will be chosen by the Facebook community based on the number of “likes” on their post. Grand Prize Winner may receive one or more of the following services: restorative dentistry, periodontal therapy, Invisalign orthodontic therapy, implant dentistry (restoration of previously placed implant), oral surgery or applicable services.
