Words for Wisdom

Words for Wisdom LogoA Contest for High School Seniors

Enter to win a chance to get your pesky wisdom teeth removed for FREE before you start college—courtesy of N.J.’s leading oral surgeons!

WHO (is eligible):

Graduating high school seniors, from anywhere in New Jersey. You do not have to be a current patient of Riverside Oral Surgery to participate.

HOW (do I participate):

All you need to do is write approximately 100–150 words about yourself (see the “what” in next section). Submit your application online by June 15, 2022.

WHAT (to write about):

100–150 words about yourself: what college you’ll be attending, why you picked that school, what do you plan to study, what are you excited for about college, and what are you sad to leave behind.

WHERE (will my procedure take place if I win):

One winner will be chosen for each service area (Bergen, Morris/Essex, and Middlesex). We have offices in River Edge, Westwood, Englewood, Livingston, Chatham, West Orange, West Caldwell, and Edison. We will coordinate to find the most convenient office for each winner.

WHEN (do I need to enter by):

The contest will be open from May 15– June 15, and winners to be announced June 16 on social media. Please follow @riversideoralsurgery. We suggest you get your wisdom teeth extracted earlier in the summer so you’ll be ready to start your new adventure when school starts.

WHY (should I participate):
Why not? It’s easy, college is expensive, and you can save your parents some money (and help us spread some love on social media). The value of the procedure ranges from $2,425–4,710 depending on case complexity.


CONTEST DETAILS: Please be sure to follow us on social media to stay on top of the contest information: @riversideoralsurgery. We will need to set winners up for a consultation and x-ray which will also be done at no charge, so be assured there is no bait and switch here. We will ask that the winners post and tag us on their social media channels so that we may reshare. The procedure will be scheduled at the winner’s requested time and date, if available. Surgery must be completed by 8/19/2022. If the winner has insurance, we will notify the insurance carrier of the adjusted rate. Winners/guardian will be required to sign a release to allow us to post/repost on social media.
