Cyber Safety


As a parent, and an Orthodontist who works with children Dr. Miller knows many parents have concerns about how to keep their children safe while using the computer or other devices. As part of Keene Orthodontic Specialists’ efforts to help kids be their best, we have been working on new resources to share with our community regarding this important issue.

Dr. Miller recently presented a practical how-to guide for cyber safety to several area elementary schools.  A copy of the presentation can be found here, and has many helpful tips for any parent looking to make their computer, and other devices safer.

If your school or organization would be interested in having us come and present, please let us know!

 

 

Smile Shuttle: Meet Jill Watkins!

[picture_frame source_type=”attachment_id” source_value=”1093″ align=”left”]  My name is Jill Watkins. I have lived in the Keene area since 1995, my first job in Keene for Nissan of Keene in the parts department. In 1998 I married my husband, Leon who owned his own business in Keene, Leon’s Auto Center located on lower Main Street. I worked at the auto center in a variety of roles over the past fifteen years, including parts and service, administrative work, and shuttle driving. After owning the business for twenty years, Leon took an early retirement and sold his business.

Together we have three children. The oldest, Danessa is my step-daughter who lives and works in Chicago. My daughter, Kaylee is in her junior year at UNH, and our youngest, Owen is in second grade.

I look forward to working with the patients, their parents and the team at Keene and Brattleboro Orthodontics. I will be checking in with you the evening before your appointments to assure everyone is on schedule and that no changes need to be made.
