Dr. Alan Kennell and his staff at Kennell Orthodontics are pleased to announce the winner of the 2016 Refer-a-Friend contest – Holly Phillips! 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.
Holly 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, Holly & her family will spend a FUN OVERNIGHT ADVENTURE IN BOSTON which includes hotel accommodations, dinner, and 4 tickets to BLUEMAN GROUP!
Dr. Kennell thanked Holly 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.”

The dreaded cold and flu season is here again! After recovering from your cold, one of the most important steps you can take to avoid becoming reinfected is replacing your toothbrush!
Germs can linger on the bristles, and you risk prolonging your sickness by continuing to use the same toothbrush. Be smart - keep a spare, just in case! To protect your toothbrush from bacteria all year long, consider the following tips:
• Wash your hands before and after brushing
• Allow the brush to air dry after each use, harmful bacteria dies after being exposed to oxygen
• Store the toothbrush in an upright position to allow water to drain and dry faster
• Replace your toothbrush every 3-4 months. Worn bristles are less effective in properly cleaning your teeth, and can actually be damaging to teeth if used too long!
Hope this tip helps! Feel free to give us a call or ask us on Facebook if you have any questions!
