[WATCH] Who Was This Year's Pumpkin Master Champion?

Oct 30, 2019

We love competing in our annual Halloween pumpkin contests, but this year we took it to a whole new level. Not only did we have our individual Halloween pumpkin contests, we also added a team competition. Four teams. Five monsters. One champion. The Pumpkin Master Championships has ended. The Pumpkin Master has been chosen. Now you get to see how it all played out.

If you enjoy watching Chopped, Cupcake Wars, or the Baking Championships, then you’ll love our first ever Pumpkin Master Championships.

We had four teams led by five dentists:

Brenham Team: Dr. Payton Canchola

Cypress Team: Dr. Roddy Castells

Houston Team 1: Dr. Nick Martin

Houston Team 2: Dr. Jessica Shimek and Dr. Austyn Grissom

Each team was challenged to create a pumpkin resembling one of five classic horror characters: a ghost, a zombie, Dracula, The Wolfman, or Frankenstein’s Monster. They were given 30 minutes to complete their project and were judged according to the three C’s: completion, creativity, and cosmetics (they are dentists after all).

Each team accepted the challenge, chose their character, and got to work. Who won and who lost? Watch the episode below to find out!

Did you enjoy watching our first ever Pumpkin Master Championships? Do you think our judges made the right choice? Let us know what you think on social media in the comments section of the video.


After the intense competition, many of our staff got in on the individual Halloween pumpkin contest. Take a look at some of these incredibly artistic and fun Halloween pumpkins from each office. Which do you like most? Let us know on Facebook or Instagram.

Along with our annual pumpkin contest, we also have our annual Halloween costume contest, and this year we had some doozies. They are absolutely hilarious. This is just further proof that you have the most fun group of dentists, dental hygienists, and dental staff in Texas. Do you like their costumes? We’d love to know what you think. Just tell us on Facebook or Instagram.


The Primrose School of Barker-Cypress will host its Trunk or Treat on Oct. 31 and we’ll be there passing out candy, stickers, and other treats to the kids. It’s a fun time to see all the kids with their costumes and an opportunity to bring a smile to their faces with delicious candy.

If you and your family come out, we’ll be there. So be sure to grab some candy and say hello.


We hope all of you have a very safe, happy and cavity-free Halloween this year. Be sure to pace yourself when eating all that candy, and make sure your kids get to eat some too. 😊

If you experience any sensitivity when eating chocolate or other sugary candy, you may have a cavity. If so, come see us for a dental exam. Tippit Dental Group is in four locations to better serve our communities. We serve the Memorial, Cypress, Brenham, and Bellville areas. We look forward to taking care of you and your family. Happy Halloween!
