The First Thing People Notice About You: Your Smile!

What’s the first thing you notice about someone?


First impressions are everything. Have you ever wondered what goes into that first impression? Body language, appearance, demeanor — but a lot rides on your smile! I absolutely love this article for its emphasis on the value of good dental care and the esthetics associated with dentistry. Sure, we can make your teeth healthy, but at Katy Trail Dental, we do like them extra pretty and white, too!


‘A new survey is out that says that 37% of people notice your smile first, while 33% notice your eyes, 15% judge your weight, 9% your hair, and 2% judge your nose. If you are surprised that weight or hair ranked so low, consider this: the biggest dating turn-off among men and women is bad teeth. According to PR Newswire, 77% of women think crooked teeth are worse than a receding hairline, and 22% of Americans think they would have a better love life if they had better teeth. On a professional level, 78% of Americans perceive adults with crooked teeth to be unsuccessful, while 14% feel they might be missing out on a better job than if they got their teeth fixed.
‘So don’t spend your money on expensive makeup or hair products, don’t give extreme workouts too much thought, and stop wondering if you need to get a nose job! All you really need to do is invest in good dental care.’
