How is the makeover finalist selected?
The Racine Dream Team will select several finalists from the nominations received prior to the deadline of December 31st. The finalists will be chosen based on the essay portion of the application, the need for the services being offered, and the feasibility of completing a dramatic dental makeover in a reasonable timeframe. Personal interviews and/or examinations may be requested by Dr. Kind and the Dream Team professionals in order to assist in the selection process.
What does the makeover recipient receive?
The recipients of the makeover will be examined and interviewed by Dr. Kind of the Racine Dream Team to determine his/her individual needs and desires for the dental makeover. Based on the interview, our makeover recipients will receive a complete dental examination, necessary x-rays, and restorative and cosmetic dental treatment as Dr. Kind and Dr. Kirchner feels is indicated. All dental procedures will be reviewed with the recipient before beginning any treatment. At the end of the makeover period, the recipient will be treated to a glamour session of professional make-up application (for women) and haircut, style, and possible color by a local salon. Photos will be taken to commemorate the transformation! The winners can celebrate his/her new look by dining as a guest at the Charcoal Grill and Rotisserie.
Who is a good candidate for this makeover?
This year, the Racine Dream Team is pleased to announce our "Home Town Heroes Edition" as a gesture of our appreciation for their sacrifices. The makeover will be rewarded to two individuals who have endured life's hardships, but has continued to try to display a positive attitude in the face of difficult circumstances. Our hope is to reflect the inner spirit of determination to the world in the form of an attractive smile. Perhaps you have encountered an employee or service person that always has a smile or a good word to the customers, but their teeth are unhealthy or distracting. Or, maybe it is the friendly greeter who always gives you a big "hello" and then smiles with a partially toothless grin. The candidate could be the janitor who is happy to go the extra mile for others, but who holds back a full smile to hide his/her teeth. There are many possibilities for our Home Town Heroes Edition. Dental appointment frequency will depend on the type of cosmetic dental treatment that the individual needs. Candidates should be interested in adopting healthy oral hygiene habits in order to achieve a successful makeover. We are hoping for a lifestyle change which will have long-lasting results.
