The winner has been chosen for the 2018 Patient Referral Mexico Cruise Drawing. Richard and Gilda Gibbard were picked at random from all entries and were notified in early February. We congratulate Richard and Gilda, and want to thank everyone who referred new patients to us over the past year. Taking care of new patients in need of care, as well as our long-time friends, is the reason we're here. A new contest will be announced soon, and we hope everyone will continue to send their friends and loved ones to us, not just to win a drawing, but because everyone should get the dental care they need in order to stay healthy.
Dr. Shannon says the reason behind the cruise giveaway was to get more people to see a dentist. He knows that many patients dread or put off dental work, or feel that it's not important. He wanted to encourage his patients to coax their friends and family members into getting the dental care they need because taking care of your teeth and gums is extremely important to overall health.
The rules were simple … every contestant received one entry in the drawing for every new patient they referred to Dr. Shannon during the 2017 calendar year. There was no limit on the number of patients that could be referred or the number of entries anyone could have in the drawing. Interestingly, Richard and Gilda only referred one patient, their son's girlfriend, and that was enough to take the prize.
Thanks and congratulations to Gilda and Richard. Have a wonderful time on your cruise!
