LAS VEGAS – May 10, 2023 – Earlier this year, Dee for Dentist, a state-of-the-art dental practice embracing groundbreaking technological innovations and techniques to treat and manage oral care, partnered with Clark County School District (CCSD) to host a district-wide design and story contest for elementary students.
The contest, which received over 2,500 entries, invited students grades K-5 to submit a one-page drawing of what they think the Tooth Fairy’s castle looks like, accompanied by a brief description.
After careful review, Dr. Dee Dee Meevasin, owner and primary clinician at Dee for Dentist, is proud to announce the winning school, class, and students:
Each winning student received cash prizes, a congratulatory letter and certificate from Dr. Dee Dee Meevasin, a complementary Healthy Start assessment, and have their artwork on display at Dee for Dentist’s Silverado Ranch location. All entries were judged on creativity, uniqueness, and description.
