When You Smile, The World Smiles Back

Categories: Blog

LET’S DO A QUICK EXPERIMENT right now! Look across the room and catch someone’s eye. Now smile at that person. Did they smile back? We’re guessing they did. Smiles are amazing in that way! New studies show that your smile is much more powerful than you think.

Happiness (expressed through your smile) Is Contagious

A recent UCSD/Harvard study documented how happiness spreads through the interactions we have with others—AND how it continues to spread beyond those we have direct contact with! You don’t even need to be close friends or family to be influenced by someone else’s happiness—it’s passed on to neighbors, coworkers, and friends of friends too.

Smiles Spread More Than Frowns

A North Dakota State University smile study concluded that smiles are way more likely to spread to others than frowns—even though researchers assumed before the study that they would be equally contagious.

In this crazy world, isn’t it nice to know that positive vibes move more quickly and efficiently than negative vibes?

It’s Another Reason Your Smile Is So Important

Here are a couple of the very best ways to unleash the powerful potential of YOUR smile to make the world a better place:

  • Keep your smile healthy. Brush and floss every day, and be sure you’re having regular checkups and professional cleanings.
  • If there’s something about your smile that’s keeping you from sharing it often, let’s visit. Ask us about ways you can have the confidence to smile more. No need to be self-conscious. We can help.

As Always, Thank You

We try not to be annoying by badgering you for referrals. However, if you have an extended family member, coworker, neighbor, or friend (even that sort of odd guy who grooms your poodle) who’s looking for a great oral health care provider, please share our practice with them. We love the new patients who come to us through you—our current patients. They typically become our favorites. Thanks.

We appreciate you!
