As we mentioned, your smile is typically the first thing others notice about you! When you improve your smile, you’ll be able to make a better first impression when you interview for a job, meet new clients, or close a sale. First impressions can make or break a career prospect. With a healthy, bright smile, you can be sure you’re making a great first impression.
Improved Job Performance
That’s right — the state of your smile can even impact your performance at work! Studies have found a direct link between oral health and job performance.

While we wish that wasn’t true, there is unfortunately a bias that exists against people with poor dental health.
And let’s be honest — when your smile is great, you feel great! An improved smile can do wonders for your confidence, which in turn, can help you advance your career.
