San Dollars

The purpose of our San Dollar Reward Program is for you to take "ownership" in the investment of orthodontic treatment that your parents have provided for you. As an incentive for you to have routine dental cleanings with your general dentist and also by you displaying good oral hygiene and being cooperative throughout treatment, we will reward you with our San Dollars that you may cash in for spins on our "Sanborn Spinner" prize wheel for gift cards, swag, etc...* during orthodontic treatment. Our hope is that this behavioral incentive program will help you have clean, healthy and spot free teeth upon completion of your orthodontic treatment. Thank you for your cooperation in helping us provide you with the smile that you have always wanted!

To help motivate you and encourage better cooperation while you are in treatment, the following list outlines ways that you can earn tokens at each appointment, which can be exchanged for a variety of prizes listed in our office:
