Why smiling is the best

“I just like to smile! Smiling’s my favorite!”
– Buddy the Elf

We just love this line from the Christmas movie “Elf” and not surprisingly we also love to smile at Jackson Dental. And more than that, we love to see our patients smile. Since smiling is obviously such a big part of our world, we thought it’d be fun to share some of the reasons why smiling is just one of the best things ever.

  1. It reduces stress.
  2. Smiles are contagious. Have you ever tried to not smile back at someone when they smile at you? It’s almost impossible.
  3. It’s our first facial expression
  4. It can elevate your mood, even when you’re feeling sad.
  5. It makes you more attractive.
  6. It’s easier than frowning.
  7. There are 19 types of smiles!
  8. As Buddy said, “It’s our favorite.”
