We are excited to partner with Prescott Farm Environmental Education Center as the "Big Back Yard" series sponsor.
The "Big Back Yard" series encourages families to get outside and explore the outdoors to search for colorful leaves and tiny insects that roam the forest floor. Kids get to learn about local species and how they prepare for their winter-long hibernation.
This series allows kids and adults to learn more about their natural surroundings with each program covering topics related to the holidays; such as learning about spiders and bats and their importance to our ecosystem and about how turkeys are New Hampshire's largest birds!

Happy World Smile Day!
"As is well known by now throughout the world Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts created the smiley face in 1963. That image went on to become the most recognizable symbol of good will and good cheer on the planet.
As the years passed Harvey Ball became concerned about the over-commercialization of his symbol, and how its original meaning and intent had become lost in the constant repetition of the marketplace. Out of that concern came his idea for World Smile Day®. He thought that we, all of us, should devote one day each year to smiles and kind acts throughout the world. The smiley face knows no politics, no geography, and no religion. Harvey’s idea was that for at least one day each year, neither should we. He declared that the first Friday in October each year would henceforth be World Smile Day®. Ever since that first World Smile Day® held in 1999, it has continued every year in Smiley's hometown of Worcester, MA and around the world."
Get out there and show off your beautiful smile today (and every day)! :)

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!

It's back to school time, and that means school sports are up and coming, and that can lead to a greater chance of your kids damaging their precious mouths and pearly whites!
If your kids play sports, it's important that you consult our office for special precautions, such as wearing a mouth guard. A protective mouth guard is advised for playing aggressive sports such as football, baseball, soccer, lacrosse, and others. Be sure, however, to avoid mouth guards that custom form to your teeth, as these will resist any tooth movements we are trying to achieve.
In case of an accident involving the face, check your mouth and the appliances immediately. If teeth are loosened or the appliances damaged, please schedule an appointment with the office. And don’t forget to ask us about how you can get a mouth guard for yourself!
Only by using a mouth guard and other forms of facial protection can kids with and without braces avoid serious sports injuries. Please give us a call if you have any questions about mouth guards or your treatment at our office.
