Can Your Smile Affect Your Career?


added on: January 20, 2016

While we’d love to believe that looks aren’t everything, the truth is, they mean a lot. Especially when it comes to your smile. In fact, research has shown a direct correlation between a pretty smile and a successful career. Unfortunate? Yes. Truthful? Also yes. At our Tuscaloosa dental office, we’d like to share a few reasons why.


Your resume is top-notch, your interview skills are slamming, and your smile is… lackluster. Do you land the job or not? According to research conducted by Kelton Research for Invisalign, Americans believe those with straight teeth are 45% more likely to be offered a position over someone with the same resumé but a crooked grin. What’s more, nearly 75% of the population believe having an unattractive smile would keep them from a promotion. We don’t like it, but the research doesn’t lie.


A straight, white smile with fresh breath automatically shows those around you that you’re healthy and you care about your appearance. Not only that, but a truly healthy smile can actually make your whole body healthy too, which means less days off work due to sickness and perhaps a bonus in the future.


It doesn’t matter if you’re a lawyer, doctor, plumber, or electrician, every career requires building and earning trust with others. One of the best ways to succeed at this is with your smile. Around 75% of Americans are more likely to trust those with healthy, beautiful smiles than those who dress professionally or drive fancy cars.
