Practice Events and Contests

Christmas Ornament Contest

What happens when a challenge is issued to area dental offices with prizes such as lunch from Panera for the entire office, a meat and cheese tray from Hy-Vee, and Country Cookies?  Choice Orthodontics found out!  Dr. Windhorst challenged the area dental offices to make a Christmas ornament from materials commonly found in the dental officead deliver it to our office. Choice Orthodontics set up an album on their Facebook page titled "Christmas Ornament Contest" for everyone to "like" their favorite ornament.  The office with the most "likes" wins.  Voting goes from December 1st to December 31st.  This contest has been such a fun time for everyone involved that it has now officially become Choice Orthodontics first Christmas tradition!

Community Events

Dr. Windhorst loves to give back to the community. Her office has volunteered for Smiles from the Heart since it was started in 2013. Smiles from the Heart is a free dental care day put on by local dentists and specialists. Patients are seen on a first come, first serve basis and can choose from a cleaning, filling or extraction. The event is held every fall. Check your local news station, radio, and newspaper for event details.

Refer a Friend Rewards

One of the greatest compliments you can give an orthodontist is to refer your friends, family, co-workers and schoolmates. We appreciate the confidence and trust of our many loyal patients who refer friends and family to our office. We value these referrals and are happy to offer cash incentives and drawings. Ask us for more details when you visit our office!

Field Trips

Dr. Windhorst and her staff members enjoy hosting field trips for area schools and organizations to educate children on the importance of good dental health. The field trips focus on healthy diets, how to properly brush and floss, what the different teeth do and learning about the dental office. We love it when classes can come into our office for the field trip, but if that is not possible we also come to the schools to provide this service. If you are interested in scheduling a field trip for your class, please call our office.


Canned Food Drive

During the months of November and December, Choice Orthodontics hosts a Canned Food Drive. For every can of food our patients bring into our office during their appointment, our office will match it. Our office loves to give back to the community and hope you will join us this year.

Continuing Education

Our orthodontic team regularly attends the American Association of Orthodontists annual continuing education meetings. This not only keeps us up to date on the very latest in treatment advances, but gives us something fun to look forward to! We have traveled to Boston, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Orlando, Honolulu, Philadelphia and Seattle.
