Getting Crazy at Mint Hill Madness

Carolina Kids Dentistry was proud to partner with Robinson Orthodontics to sponsor the free “Show Us Your Smile” photo booth at Mint Hill Madness this year.

Dr. Bevin Malley, a Charlotte, NC pediatric dentist, continued to spread the word about our pediatric dentistry practice, as well as the importance of good oral hygiene.

We understand the importance of educating children about proper dental health in a way that is fun and engaging. That’s why we wanted to be involved in the “Show Us Your Smile” booth. Inside the booth, children got to choose from a variety of props such as feather boas, wigs and sunglasses to create their own version of “madness.”

“No fair is complete without a photo booth,” said Mint Hill dentistry professional Dr. Malley. “The kids had great fun posing for pictures and the booth provided an opportunity to speak with kids about good oral health habits.”

The more exposure kids have to dentists, the better they tend to feel about letting a dentist work on their teeth.

We also handed out goody bags filled with toothbrushes, toothpaste and floss. We like to be involved in community events such as Mint Hill Madness and similar events because although we opened in December 2010, we are still relatively new and we have lots of people to meet. We believe that family-oriented events are an ideal outlet for us to spread the word about who we are, where our office is located and the services we offer.

“We truly enjoy doing events throughout the community because it enables us to connect with our community since they were so receptive to us even before we opened our doors,” said Dr. Malley.

The Mint Hill Chamber of Commerce sponsored the family-friendly event, which is held annually to celebrate the arrival of the fall season. This year’s 29th annual event was held Sept. 23 and 24 in downtown Mint Hill. It featured dancing, live music, a beauty pageant, fireworks, a 5k run and an assortment of children’s activities throughout the two-day event.
