Contest & Events


Greater Houston Orthodontics is ready to welcome in Fall with another Patient Contest that will exercise your brain. Word Mining is a fun writing exercise where you create as many common words as possible, using an assigned phrase. For example, using the word Halloween you can create: wall, new, owl, how, hen, and so on. This Word Mining contest will be using the phrase, “Crisp Autumn Days”.


  • Words that require a capital letter are not allowed (names like David or Sally).
  • Words that are pluralized simply by adding an “s” are not allowed (cats, dogs, owls) though their singular is allowed (cat, dog, owl).
  • Words that require punctuation are not allowed (ex:  can’t, don’t).
  • Words must contain 2 or more letters to be counted in your total.
