Wooden Nickel ProgramLouisville, CO
In order to help our patients attain their treatment goals and as an additional incentive, patients can earn wooden nickels at each scheduled appointment. The number of wooden nickels received depends on patient’s cooperation – keeping your braces clean and undamaged is critical to achieving a good result.
The wooden nickels may be saved and redeemed for movie passes, CD’s, footballs, and other prizes. This is our way of saying, “Thanks for being a great patient!”
