Help Us Dress Our Mitten Tree!

When you are out doing your holiday shopping, we would love it if you would pick up a pair of mittens, a scarf, or hat to put on the Jarrell Orthodontics’ Mitten Tree. Each year, we put a small tree up in the reception area that we ask you, our patients and your families, to adorn with mittens, gloves, scarves and hats. All donations will be given to the Salvation Army for distribution to those in need. This year’s donations will not be taken to the Salvation Army until Friday, January 10 which will give us all time to shop the Christmas sales and those wonderful after Christmas sales and clean the stores out of mittens, gloves, hats and scarves for our Mitten Tree. There are as many little hands in Kokomo in need of mittens as ever. If we work together, we can warm some hands and hearts with our generosity. Thank you for all you do for those less fortunate throughout the year!

November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month

Did you know that November is Lung Cancer Awareness Month? It's a great time to remind your patients about the importance of screenings, since approximately 1 in 14 Americans will be diagnosed with lung cancer during their lifetime. These screenings don't apply to smokers only - 18% of lung cancer patients have never smoked in their lives. To learn more about lung cancer, log onto the Lung Cancer Alliance at http://www.lungcanceralliance.org/

World Kindness Day

Today is World Kindness Day. Have you ever been the recipient of a "random act of kindness"? Some of the members of team Jarrell have. Carrie, our professional relations coordinator was. Years ago, she was looking for change in her purse to purchase a ticket at the airport for the train to travel into Washington, D.C. A man standing next to her saw her looking for change and gave her the money for the ticket. When she thanked him, he simply told her to pay it forward and help someone else out some day which she has done. One of our orthodontic assistants, Breanna, also had a story to share. She was in the drive through and ordered dinner for 7 people with the bill totaling almost $40 when she got to the window to pay, she learned that the person in front of her had paid the bill and added dessert. She paid it forward by paying for the person behind her. We love hearing stories like these. How do you plan to celebrate World Kindness Day?

Happy 30th Anniversary, Denise!

Today is a big day at Jarrell Orthodontics. Thirty years ago today, Denise Culbertson started her journey as an employee of Jarrell Orthodontics. We want to wish her the happiest of 30th anniversaries and tell her just how much she means to the practice and our patients. Denise is our Office Manager, Treatment Coordinator and jack of all trades. We simply do not know what we would do without her. She is the "go to" person for so much at Jarrell Orthodontics that we could never guess at how many times a day the response to someone's question is "ask Denise". Employees who stay on the job and continue to enjoy their jobs as much as Denise does are rare indeed. So, Happy Anniversary, Denise! It really would not be the same at Jarrell Orthodontics without you!

It's Going to be a Happy Halloween!

Friday, October 25, 2013

Dress Up in Costume for Oct. 30 & 31 Appointments

We are hoping to see a real cast of characters in our office for their appointments on October 30 and 31.  We know our patients are all "characters" but we want to see them dressed up in Halloween costumes when they come for their appointments at Jarrell Orthodontics on Wednesday, October 30 and Thursday, October 31.  The staff will be in full costume and we cannot wait to see what our patients dream up for themselves!  Gift cards will be awarded to the "best dressed" patient each day as determined by team Jarrell!

Friday, October 18, 2013

We had a great time with the 3rd grade students from Western who came to Jarrell Orthodontics the last 2 Fridays for field trips.  They learned about brushing and flossing, how we use braces to straighten teeth, saw how we scan teeth using the itero scanner, how and why we take x-rays and made a mold of their thumbs to take home.  It's a whirlwind morning for team Jarrell when the 3rd graders are here but we love it!

Pumpkin Decorating Contest is ON!

It's that time of year again...the members of Team Jarrell have tried to outdo each other in the annual Pumpkin Decorating Contest and this year, there's a twist. For our October patient contest, we are asking patients to match the member of Team Jarrell with the pumpkin they decorated in addition to asking them to vote for their favorite pumpkin. Creations range from Minnie Mouse to Mike from Monsters, Inc. to a fishbowl complete with a live fish to a "pumpkin"...so it's gonna be a tough one to judge. We hope our patients have as much fun looking at the pumpkins as our team members had making them. We love October!!!

The fall brings a whole new batch of activity to Jarrell Orthodontics. You have until October 14 to bring in new or gently used coats to donate to the Salvation Army's Coats for Kids program. They are in dire need of warm winter coats. The backstock they had amassed was wiped out in this spring's flooding so they are starting at zero. Also, Kid's Club members are invited to the 3rd Annual Kid's Club Outing at Guffey Acres. We have the whole place to ourselves from 5:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. October 8. Each Kid's Club member may get up to 4 wristbands; everyone who attends must have a wristband which may be picked up at Jarrell Orthodontics through October 8. Finally, don't forget to take part in "Dr. Kevin's Pick the Winners" football contest each week. Our weekly winner receives a $10 gift card to Culvers and the overall winner at the end of the season wins a jersey from the NFL team of their choice (New England Patriots excluded, of course!). We love the fall and all the activity it brings!

Coats for Kids Needs Your Help!

The box is out and ready to be filled to overflowing with coats. The Salvation Army's annual Coats for Kids program is in full swing and Jarrell Orthodontics is a Drop-Off site for the program. Between now and October 14, we will be gathering new or gently used coats (hats, gloves, mittens and scarves are also needed) for distribution on October 25 to those in need. The need is particularly great this year as the spring flooding severely damaged their north Thrift Store and destroyed all remaining coats. So, they are starting with zero inventory. If you can help us fill the box with coats, we would certainly appreciate it. You may drop coats off at Jarrell Orthodontics Monday - Thursday from 8:30 to 5:00 and Friday from 8:30 to 1:00. Thank you!

No Boil & Bite Mouth Guards for Braces Wearers!

For anyone who participates in sports these days, mouth guards are highly recommended for the protection of one’s teeth. This is particularly true for those undergoing orthodontic treatment. Getting hit in the mouth is no picnic for anyone but for those wearing braces getting hit in the mouth can mean double trouble. So, mouth guards are a must. However, “Boil & Bite” mouth guards are not the answer for patients in braces as they can actually pull the braces off the teeth. Jarrell Orthodontics provides mouth guards (purple, yellow, green, blue, black, red or white) to patients at no cost. Mouth guards are a must if you take part in sports! Request one the next time you come in for your appointment.

We gave 5 classes of 3rd graders from Western Intermediate School a tour of the office and an overview of the orthodontic process.  They learned about xrays, how we scan teeth digitally to make 3D models of teeth, the proper way to brush and floss, and they made models of their thumbs.  Before they hit the door and got back on the bus for the ride back to Western School, each student got a little goody bag and their thumb to take home!  Next week, the other 4 classes of 3rd grade students.  It is always a busy but fun field trip for all!

You know you need to floss your teeth but it can be tricky with braces. When we place braces on our patient's teeth, we give them a package of Plackers Orthopicks. If you are having trouble finding them locally, you might give Walgreen's a try.

What a great season for Dr. Kevin's Pick the Winners. We had quite a few patients vying for the grand prize NFL jersey right up through Week 17. But Adam M. came up as our grand prize winner by a total of 1 point! Adam's #10 blue Andrew Luck jersey is a perfect fit for him! Thank you to everyone who played our Dr. Kevin's Pick the Winners this past year.  Now, all we have left of football for the 2012 season is to see which Harbaugh brother ends up with a Super Bowl ring!
