While you’d like to believe that you’d be chosen for a job because of your qualifications, you can’t deny the impact appearances have on your employability. In fact, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry revealed that 74% of Americans believe that an unattractive smile can prevent them from climbing the career ladder.
According to a 2011 study, there may be truth behind this little statistic. Dr. Mikki Hebl and Dr. Juan Madera discovered that facial imperfections can distract interviewers or employers. As a result, they may remember what the interviewee/employee looked like rather than what they said or could achieve during their employment.
If you’re still confident about your unhealthy smile, here’s another reason that will definitely force you to change it: your lack of hygiene will turn off any employer. How could they entrust you with accounts and valuable data when you don’t pay attention to a vital part of your body? Since your inability to take care of your teeth reflects badly on your employability and career, you need to get your pearly whites in order.
The first thing you should do is book an appointment at one of our Dr. Dental dentists in Connecticut, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey or Rhode Island. Our professionals will take care of your teeth inside out, ensuring their health as well as their beauty whenever you smile. Here are some treatments we provide to restore smiles and help in building careers:
- Crowns and Bridges – While laughing with your interviewer or employer, the last thing you need is for them to get a peek into your mouth and notice craters caused by plaque and broken teeth. We’ll help restore your damaged teeth or create bridges to replace the missing ones.
- Oral Hygiene – A smile can turn lethal when combined with bad breath or bleeding gums. We’ll help boost your oral hygiene and ensure it for years to come as long as you stick to our recommendations.
- Dental Cleaning – Get your teeth plaque-free so that you can save your oral hygiene and ensure beautiful, white teeth whenever you smile. All it takes is 25-30 with our skilled dental hygienist and you’ll be set to go.
- Tooth Whitening – White teeth have always been symbols of success. Just check the picture of your company’s CEO and you’ll get all the proof you need. While you’re always welcome to whiten your teeth at our office, we understand how busy your schedule is and offer tray whitening so you can carry out the treatment at home.
These are just a few of the many services we offer professionals at the start or middle of their career. So book your appointment today with one of Dr. Dental locations to consult with our dentists and get the $1 million smile you deserve.
