Baum Orthodontics in Tustin, CA has been a proud sponsor of the Dinosaur Dash for over 20 years. The Dino Dash is comprised of several different races, and is attended by all of the local schools, students and their families, and thousands in the community. All proceeds benefit the non-profit, Tustin Public Schools Foundation, and the local public schools. Dr. Baum is also honored to be a board member of TPSF. Baum Orthodontics was the first dental-related booth present at the event for years, and it is amazing to see the growth of this awesome race, both in sponsors, and in attendance.
Early on Sunday November 4th, at 4:45 A.M., the orange Baum Orthodontics booth popped up, and the fun began! We are known for our orange foam dinosaur shaped hats that all schools, children, and many adults rush to pick up prior to their races. Each year we give away 3,500 dino hats! We also offered face painting, balloon twisting, and caricature artists at our booth.
The Dinosaur Dash is one of our team’s favorites for many reasons. We get to see so many of our past and current patients and their families come to our booth to say hello, give hugs, and share their smiles with us. It is wonderful when when so many parents stop by and ask to meet Dr. Baum. Parents are understandably curious if their child will need braces, if they are ready to start treatment, and also want to make their first appointment arrangements with our office. The American Association of Orthodontists recommend patients be seen at age 7 for their first orthodontic evaluation with an orthodontic specialist. Dr. Baum has even given preliminary consultations at our booth. All of the models were on display of metal and clear braces, and clear aligners, such as Invisalign and 3M Clarity, which is always fun for the kids to see!
We thank the thousands of volunteers that make this such an amazing event for out community. We of course look forward to another great event next year. See you at the Dash!#dashgobig # dinodash #tpsf #tusd #baumsquad #baumortho
