The Power of a Great Smile!!

If someone asked you what the single most attention grabbing aspect of person is… what would you think? It’s simple!! The characteristic people are drawn to most is a smile… often overlooked, a smile can be one of the most valuable characteristics to love about yourself.

In fact in a study, by the Center for Natural Dentistry, it was found that having great smile can improve your chances for personal success. Whether within your career, your relationships, your own self esteem, having a great smile helps you love yourself and therefore BLOOM and SHINE in other aspects of your life. 

“A smile conveys confidence and professionalism,” says Lily T. Garcia, DDS, a past president of the American College of Prosthodontists. People who project a positive outlook are generally more open and flexible. They tend to cope better with challenges than people who are withdrawn and unsmiling.
