On the weekend, Coastal Dental Care took part in the 2017 Kingscliff Rotary Duck Race.
The annual Kingscliff Rotary Duck Race is an initiative of Kingscliff Rotary International. The race aims to raise money for local charities and for Rotary projects. This year, Coastal Dental Care entered ducks from both our Kingscliff and Banora Point practices.
Although it rained all day Saturday, the weather was a stunning shade of blue for race day on Sunday. It was a fantastic day, filled with family activities such as jumping castles, food trucks, animals and plenty of community involvement.
On the day, there were two different races for corporate ducks, which included a standard duck race and an enhanced power ducks race. Our Kingscliff and Banora Point ducks were both entered into the standard duck race.
2017 Rotary Duck Race champion
There were a variety of extravagant duck designs, all dressed in different corporate attire and fancy dress.
Both the Kingscliff and Banora Point ducks were decorated to showcase Coastal Dental Care. Coastal Dental Care Kingscliff’s duck was decorated as a tooth fairy with a shade of sliver, a crown, wand and an array of feathers on its back. This was complimented by braces on the duck’s mouth, to ensure it received a beautifully straight Coastal Dental Care smile. Coastal Dental Care Banora Point’s duck was dressed as a dentist, complete with a dental coat, face mask, pocket tooth brushes and goggles to protect its eyes.
Both dental ducks looked fabulous and received plenty of positive feedback. They were admired so much by the public that the Tooth Fairy duck of Kingscliff took out the “Best Dressed Duck” title, securing the first win of the day.
In the end, it was the Coastal Dental Care Kingscliff duck who earned the honour of being crowned 2017 Rotary Duck Race Champion. Principal Dentist, Dr Richard Kneebone and The Big Tooth were excited to receive the trophy, a voucher for a day on a BBQ boat for 12 people, and a big round of applause on stage.
