wellesley wonderful weekend

Dinosaurs, Tooth Fairies, and Fireworks, Oh My!

May 26th, 2016

Wellesley Dental Group Had a Blast at #WellesleyWonderfulWeekend2016!

The smile ambassadors of Wellesley Dental Group had the pleasure of serving Wellesley Wonderful Weekend last Sunday, May 22nd.

We started off the morning by setting up our tractor float to represent our caring team. Despite the rainy forecast, the weather turned out beautiful (probably because of the Indian anti-rain dance that was performed)!

The float wouldn't be complete without our life-size dinosaur mascot Christopher, our very own tooth fairy, our team members, giant toothbrushes, and fun blue balloons!


All along the parade route, our smile ambassadors passed out toothbrushes and toothpaste to kids and gave them quite a few smiles as well! We were so happy that the kids were all having such a great time.


After the parade, the team made a quick stop at Dr. Ali and Ali's home and headed straight to the Wellesley town picnic in Hunnewell Field.

At the picnic, we set up a tent and a photo booth full of props. We had a great time handing out hair feather extensions and glow sticks to start the fun. To satisfy those sweet cravings, we also made fried Oreos and fried dough (shh...don't tell anyone!) But don't worry, we also gave out toothbrushes and toothpaste to promote proper oral hygiene!

At our booth, over 100 kids and adults that were young at heart took fun pictures with our beautiful tooth fairy and of course, our dinosaur mascot Christopher.

Wellesley Parade and Picnic

May 23rd, 2013

Wellesley’s Wonderful Weekend was once again truly wonderful—what an amazing experience to celebrate another year of this great community tradition!

Thank you to the Wellesley Celebrations Committee for organizing such wonderful events for the community and the volunteers who support it. We also want to thank the Wellesley Police Department for not only keeping everyone safe this weekend but for also representing our town in the OneFund by selling BostonStrong t-shirts and donating proceeds to those who were affected by the recent Boston Marathon tragedy.

Our tractor float caught a lot of attention this year! It was all thanks to the little smile ambassadors we had on board helping our team promote healthy, happy smiles. The fun continued later at the picnic, where the Wellesley Dental Group tent was a real party! We had face painting and feather extensions, guest appearances from the Tooth Fairy and Chuckles the Dinosaur, and lots of treats for all our young smile ambassadors! Even a little rain didn't dampen the community spirit, and the night came to a perfect end with some truly spectacular fireworks. We can’t wait to sponsor them again next year!
