Las Vegas – Dee for Dentist, a state-of-the-art dental practice embracing groundbreaking technological innovations and techniques to treat and manage oral care, has partnered with the Clark County School District (CCSD) to host a district-wide design and story contest for elementary students, grades K-5, launching the practice’s 2023 Fills Good program – a community-based initiative to support local nonprofit organizations.
To enter, students are invited to submit a one-page drawing – in black and white, or color – of what they think the Tooth Fairy’s castle looks like, accompanied by a brief description of 50 words or less. To easily identify the artist, all entries must include the student's full name, school name, grade level, teacher's email and phone number on the back of their submission. Winning students and the top participating school will receive various prizes, including cash, a special presentation with Dee for Dentist’s primary clinician Dr. Dee Dee Meevasin and the Tooth Fairy, and a chance for their artwork to be displayed at the practice.
