Did you know a simple smile can affect self-esteem?
Did you know it takes 12 muscles to smile and 113 muscles to frown?
When you smile at another person, a warm, genuine smile, you tell that other person that he or she is likeable, attractive, pleasant, safe and secure in your estimation. A single smile is so powerful that it can often transform a person with low self-esteem, jolting them from negativity to a person with a positive attitude.
When you smile at another person, the physical action releases endorphins in your brain. Endorphins are called nature’s “happy drug.” They make you feel happy and raise your self-esteem. When you smile, you feel and act in a more personable way to everyone around you and exude a feeling of positive attitude.
Every time you smile, you not only make other people feel better about themselves, but you raise your self-esteem, increase your level of positive attitude and feel better about yourself as well.
All it takes is the intentional decision by you to smile at the people around you, and to express to them that you are genuinely happy to see them.

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.”
