From the picture they sent us, it looks like Emilia D. and her family enjoyed their time at the Zoo!


November - Elf on the Shelf came to Jarrell orthodontics this year and we asked our patients to suggest a name for our "Elf" for the November contest. The prize for this contest, 100 pit passes, was of interest to all. We congratulate Alexa A. who suggested the name "Selfie" and took home the pit passes. Have fun "spending" those 100 pit passes, Alexa A.!

Enjoy the gift card, Ryan B.!

Just your normal, run of the mill Indy 500 trivia! Jon H. ended up our winner with a perfect score. We were thrilled to learn that this was to be Jon's 1st Indianapolis 500 and hope he had a great time!

April - Our April Contest is always a favorite of our patients because the prize is an Easter basket filled to overflowing with good stuff. In order to be entered to win the Easter basket this year, patients had to guess how many jelly beans we put into a plastic egg. Alexis S. came in with an amazing guess of 421 and the real number was 419; she was only off by 2! So, Alexis S. took home the coveted Easter basket which her Mom later said she shared with others. That's the spirit, Alexis S., congratulations!

November - Thanksgiving is just around the corner and it’s a holiday when many people take a minute to count their blessings. Because most of us have much for which to be thankful, we chose that as the focus of Dr. Kevin’s Thanksgiving Blessings Contest. Patients were asked to answer this question: “When you sit down to that big Thanksgiving dinner, this year, what are you going to be thankful for?”. Alex J. was our big winner and earned himself a $40 gift card to AMC Theaters for his efforts. With all those good holiday movies coming out, we have no doubt Alex J. will be heading to the theater sometime soon! Congratulations, Alex J.!

May - The month of May can only mean one thing: it's time for our Indianapolis 500 Contest. This year, we asked patients to answer 2 questions about the Indianapolis 500 ticket - who was pictured on the ticket and what had they done to merit getting their picture on the ticket. Because Hunter K. knew that Dario Franchitti was on the ticket for winning last year's Indy 500, he scored 2 tickets to the Big Race! Hunter K., we hope you enjoyed the 97th running of the Indianapolis 500!

April - The title of our contest in April was "The Tax Man Cometh" and you guessed it, the theme was money. Only this time, we were putting money back into the pocket of one lucky patient!
