While it might not be right, the way a person looks and that first impression based on looks has an immediate effect on the way people form an opinion of another person. In a professional setting, unfortunately this is no different to the rest of the world. And a nice and pleasing smile can improve assumptions regarding success, popularity, intelligence, and general health. Whether we like it or not, we are judged on our appearance.
The better your smile appears, the more likely you are to get your dream job. There have been several studies that have investigated the impact that an attractive appearance or an attractive smile can make in a persons’ career. They found that when all other things are equal, those with better smiles were hired more often, viewed as good team players, and given raises more frequently.
As part of the study from Invisalign, Timothy A. Mack, senior vice president of business development for Align Technology, maker of Invisalign said “We live in a society where looking good heavily impacts how we are perceived. You can say you’re not supposed to judge a book by its cover, but people do it every day.”
Preventative dental and orthodontic treatments not only improve oral health, reduce cavities, and tooth decay, but can also give the confidence in personal life and business that comes with a straight smile.
A nice smile can improve assumptions regarding ability and intelligence and may just help you land that dream career by giving a positive and lasting first impression.
