What to do First?

It's a difficult decision.  Do we walk the corn maze first, jump on the new corn popper, ride the barnyard barrel train, play in the straw jump, or hit the corn crib?  Who knows what you will do first at Guffey Acres during the Jarrell Orthodontics' Kid's Club outing on October 10.  One thing we know for sure, if you don't pick up your wristbands at the Jarrell Orthodontics office, you will be left out of all the farmtastic fun Guffey Acres has to offer!

Our Kid's Club outing to Guffey Acres is less than 2 weeks away.  The date is October 10 and the hours are 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.  Kid's Club members (those still growing teeth) may have up to 4 wristbands. 

Food and beverage and pumpkins will be available for sale during this event.  But remember, you must have a wristband to enter as this is a private event.

See you October 10 at the corn crib, or the barrel train, or the straw jump or the corn popper....

Drug Disposal - National Take-Back Initiative

This Saturday the 29th is the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency's next National Prescription Drug Take-Back Day. On that day people can bring their unwanted or expired medications—including opioid painkillers—to disposal sites across the country....

Prescription medications are now the most commonly abused drugs among kids ages 12–13 and second to marijuana among young adults, according to 2010 data from the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration. Studies show that a majority of these drugs are obtained from family and friends, often from the home medicine cabinet.

On the last Take-Back Day, April 28, Americans brought a record 276 tons of prescription drugs for proper disposal to more than 5,600 locations.

Currently, in Kokomo the collection sites are the downtown Walgreens and KPD. There are a couple in Peru and the surrounding area as well.

Flex Funds for Orthodontics

As you begin to think about the funds that remain in your 2012 Flexible Spending Account, don't forget that Flex funds may be used for orthodontics.  If you or your child is in need of orthodontics, give us a call to schedule an initial exam to see about getting the braces placed before the end of the year so you can use your Flex funds. You may also use Flex Funds to make payments on accounts for patients already in treatment.
