Welcome to our Blog

One of the great things about dentistry is being able to enhance patient’s lives so significantly. Allowing people to look better, smile more readily, be free of pain, chew and function normally, live longer and have nice fresh breath for speaking and kissing are just a few of the things we do to improve the lives of everyone we touch. Even the most basic dental procedures are incredibly important – without good dental hygiene and regular cleanings millions more teeth would be lost every year. We hope you enjoy our blog and find the information within useful and sometimes even entertaining.

What is Your Smile Worth?

What Can Your Smile Do For You?

According to a recent study done by the American Dental Association, the feature that others find most attractive is not our hair, eyes, or body - it is our smile!

In light of this, don't worry about trying to compete with the latest supermodel or those impossible-to-beat images we see on every billboard and magazine ad.  Just flash your pearly whites and smile!

There's more to it than that... Anti-aging expert, Dr. mark Stibich has come up with some fantastic reasons to smile.  Here are just a few.

  • Smiling Changes Our Mood
Next time you are feeling down, try putting on a smile. Smiling can trick the body into helping you change your mood for the better.

  • Smiling Is Contagious
When someone is smiling they lighten up the room and make things happier.  Smile lots and you will draw people to you.  

  • Smiling Relieves Stress
Stress can really show up in our faces.  Smiling helps to prevent us from looking tired, worn down, and overwhelmed.  When you are stressed, take time to put on a smile.  The stress should be reduced and you'll be better able to take action.

  • Smiling Boosts Your Immune System

  • Smiling Releases Endorphins, Natural Pain Killers and Serotonin
Studies have shown that smiling releases endorphins, natural pain killers, and serotonin, making us feel great.  Smiling is a natural drug.

  • Smiling Lifts the Face and Makes You Look Younger
The muscles we use to smile lift the face, making a person appear younger.  Don't go for a face-lift, just try smiling your way through the day -- you'll look younger and feel better!



There's no doubt about it - smiling is something we should be extremely thankful for.  At Acreview Dental Clinic, it is our mission to give our patients something to smile about!
