Your Child’s Fortune-Telling Smile

February 18, 2011

Your smile says a lot about you. It exudes confidence, as well as displays success, contentment, and happiness. It’s also the first thing someone notices about you, making it the basis for the first impression you give off.

Don’t you want your child to have a big, bright smile? The team at Lake Orion Family Dental does! I’m Dr. Brad Greenfield, and I love seeing kids in my office. My team and I want to give your child a healthy smile and pave the way for lifelong dental health, but what if there was another reason to get your kids to flash a big grin?

A recent study at DePauw University found a correlation between the intensity of people’s smiles in childhood photographs and their marriage success as adults.

According to the research, those with weak smiles in snapshots from their childhood were more likely to get divorced later in life. When looking at college photographs, the divorce rate among those with weak smiles was 1 in every 4 people, while the divorce rate in those with the biggest smiles was only 1 in 20.

When you think about, this makes complete sense. Happy people smile frequently, and that happiness has the power to impact every part of life, including relationships with others.

I know there is one thing you and I agree on. We want the best for your children. Giving your child quality dental care is one of the best gifts you can give them. If children know they have a healthy mouth, they will want to show it off. Apparently, that will benefit them both now and later.

To schedule an appointment for your child, or the entire family, please contact my office in Lake Orion, Michigan at (248) 693-6213.
