Rio Olympic Medal Contest Winner!

Cedarbrae & Danforth Orthodontic Centres hosted an Olympic Medals Guessing Contest this July. Patients were encouraged to guess how many Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals Canada would win during the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio. In the end, Canada brought home a total of 22 medals – 15 Bronze, 3 Silver, and 4 Gold! No one guessed exactly the correct number of medals won, so we chose our winner based on who was closest without going over. And the winner is …. Linnea!

Congratulations Linnea! Enjoy your FitBit Charge!
