PHILADELPHIA, PA, January 30, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Smiling is something that all professionals are encouraged to do when interacting with others--particularly if they are directly communicating with clients, shareholders, and other important people who support the success of a business. As such, many people are not surprised to find a correlation between an improved smile and enhanced professional opportunities. In a reaction to an article posted by Deseret News, Dr. Keith Ostrosky, noted dental professional, explains that he has seen a major difference in the career prospects of several of his patients after they underwent the procedures necessary to straighten, whiten, and otherwise improve their teeth.
The article provides an anecdote that regales the story of Shelly, a woman who was not only qualified for a job but beloved by her peers, who was not given a permanent position because of her teeth. The office manager who was responsible for the decision to replace her with someone else reportedly stated, according to the article, that the image she projected was not one he wanted reflected on the clinic at which she had been temporarily employed. The article notes that this issue is more common than one might think: "This is not an isolated incident. Studies show bad teeth prevent otherwise qualified candidates from getting jobs or promotions."
As one might suspect, the inverse of this issue is also applicable in certain situations. As Dr. Ostrosky explains, he has seen a rise in professional possibilities for patients who have dental work done.
"I have had many patients either get new jobs, earn promotions, or receive raises after having dental work done that improves their dentition, looks, and smile," asserts Dr. Keith Ostrosky. "It is amazing how much more somebody smiles and truly looks happier after they receive the dental services necessary to fix issues with their teeth. Some people have been hiding their feelings for the larger part of their lives because they wanted to cover up their teeth, and these are the people who simply glow after their dental work is complete. I find it an honor to work with such patients--and to provide the medical care that enables them to move forward in their careers and, ultimately, in their lives."
