What to Expect at Your Next Appointment

May 11th, 2020

 

We are excited to resume normal operations on May 18, 2020!

We can’t wait to see all of our patients once again!  These past few weeks have been quite challenging for ALL of us, but we’ll make it through and be stronger because if it.  All of our patients’ appointments are currently being confirmed, so rest assured if you have not been contacted, you will be.

While the office has been closed, we’ve been working hard behind the scenes to ensure we can reopen safely and efficiently.  We have always taken pride in the cleanliness of our office and our strict adherence to infection control standards, and we will continue to provide comfortable, safe, and effective orthodontic care as we resume our regular business hours.

Kennell Orthodontics follows the infection control recommendations made by the American Dental Association (ADA), the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA.)  We stay up to date on all new rulings and guidance issued to ensure we’re adhering to the most current information and recommendations.

However, as you might imagine, we are going to be taking additional safety measures to help protect both our patients and our team.

 

Here are a few changes we have implemented in the office:

We will be calling patients the day before the appointment to confirm the appointment time and ask a few screening questions.  You’ll be asked these same questions again when you enter the office.

*** Please RE-SCHEDULE your appointment if you feel sick, have a fever, or have been in contact with someone who has been sick in the last 14 days. ***

We ask that everyone entering the building please wear a mask or other acceptable facial covering.

Please do your best to arrive at your scheduled appointment time – not too early and [please!] not late.

  • If you arrive early, we ask that you wait outside the office until your scheduled appointment time.
  • If you are more than 10 minutes late, please call the office to let us know so that we can determine the best time to see you.

The Sign-In screen [and finger scanner] have been temporarily disabled to minimize touching/contamination. Please let the Front Desk Team know when you arrive so they can check you in.

Upon checking-in, a team member will greet you in order to perform a Wellness Screening consisting of a brief Questionnaire, Consent Form, Temperature Check (non-contact), and Hand Sanitizer.

There will also be hand sanitizer available in the reception area and other places around the office for you to use as needed.

Our Team will be wearing enhanced Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including clinical jackets, face shields, enhanced face masks, and safety glasses.  This may vary depending on the risk level of the procedure(s) we are performing.

We have adjusted our schedule as to allow more time between patients in an effort to adhere to social distancing by reducing the number of people in the reception area at one time. This may result in fewer scheduling options for your appointment.

Although sitting in the waiting area will most likely notbe necessary, please do your best to allow ample social distance from others that may also be sitting in the waiting area.

We ask that only 1 adult accompany their child into the office for their scheduled appointment.

Teen and adult patients should come alone, unless a parent/spouse/etc.. has a question for Dr. Kennell about the patient’s treatment.  We ask that everyone else please wait comfortably outside or in your vehicle.

Sadly, the X-Box games and Photo Booth will be off-limits until further notice.

We are no longer offering magazines or other reading materials in the reception area, these items are difficult to keep clean and disinfected.

For now, our Toothbrushing Station is a Handwashing Station.  Please remember to brush your teeth (and floss!) at home, before coming to your appointment.  If you need to brush at the office, we will provide you with a pre-pasted disposable toothbrush to use in the restroom.

Let’s keep all office talk positive and have fun together - safely!

We’re coming up with cool ways to say hello with “virtual hugs” and “virtual handshakes”!

We will still have fun prizes, contests and giveaways! - Follow us on Facebook and Instagram!

If you have any questions about your child’s treatment progress or the steps we’re taking to keep you safe, we’re happy to answer them!  You can email us at info@kennellortho.com or give us a call (603) 524-7404.

Thank you for sticking with us through these uncertain times!  You are family to us, and we appreciate you so much.  We can’t wait to see you all in the office again soon!

Keep smiling and stay safe,

Dr. Kennell and The Kennell Ortho Team

Kennell Orthodontics 2018 Texas Sized BBQ!

September 21st, 2018

By golly, did we have a boot-stompin' fabulous time at our Texas BBQ!

Our patients make it easy to come to the office every day! As a way to thank them for making our jobs so fun and rewarding, we wanted to show them how much we really appreciated them! Team Kennell Ortho partnered with Prescott’s Farm Environmental Education Center in Laconia, to host a private Texas style BBQ on Sunday, September 16, 2018. Over 200 of our patients came out that day to enjoy some delicious BBQ food and country festival inspired activities!

Patients of all ages were able to enjoy playing lawn games like giant Jenga, corn hole, and giant ring toss! The hayrides that went around the farm gave views of the beautiful New Hampshire mountains that surround the Lakes Region.

DJ Nazzy was an awesome host that made the line dancing and pie eating contest memorable for everyone—even the parents got up to bust a move! From the food to the photo magic mirror, there was something for everyone to enjoy.

Congratulations to patient Kim R, who won a Fujifilm instant camera with a contest presented by Invisalign partner Align Technologies!

The service provided by Magic Foods Catering, from Moultonborough, only added to this spectacular event with their friendly servers and finger-lickin' Texas BBQ inspired preparations.

It was a special day to have the Kennell Orthodontics family all together to enjoy the beautiful weather and great activities. No one went home with an empty stomach!

Kennell Orthodontics Celebrates 2017 Contest Winner

January 17th, 2018

Tarryn R. 2017 Referral Winner

Dr. Alan Kennell and his staff at Kennell Orthodontics are pleased to announce the winner of the 2017 Refer-a-Friend contest –Tarryn R. of Plymouth, NH!  Kennell Orthodontics realizes the greatest compliment received is when one of their patients refers a friend or colleague to their practice.  In an effort to show appreciation to patients for these referrals, Dr. Kennell developed the Refer-a-Friend campaign.  This campaign, which focuses on new patient treatment plans from qualified referrals, rewards Refer-a-Friend participants with a Visa Cash Card and an entry into the grand prize drawing. Tarryn had multiple entries from her multiple referrals – this gave her a greater advantage on having her name picked as the Grand Prize Winner!

As the Grand Prize winner, Tarryn is the new recipient of an Apple MacBook Air Computer.

Dr. Kennell thanked Tarryn for being a valued patient and for recommending Kennell Orthodontics to her family and friends.  “We are honored to have such loyal patients who continue to refer to us and share their positive experiences here at Kennell Orthodontics with others.”
