Dr. Harris, I found a good article called “Society and the smile: Hollywood’s influence on the perception of beauty”


Thank you for sharing it with us! My favorite part was:

 “As it’s often said, beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Some patients will want blindingly white teeth, porcelain veneers or rhinestone encrusted grills. Others are satisfied with caries-free checkups, and others beam with joy at the completion of each procedure. We’re fortunate that we’ve chosen a profession that allows us the opportunity to put a smile on peoples’ faces. While Hollywood may be influencing our perceptions of beauty, it’s our responsibility as oral health care providers to help our patients make realistic expectations, to provide quality care and to promote oral health.”
