A beam, a smirk, a grin. Is there any better expression of happiness than a smile? Probably not.
There are many things in life that make us smileโ€”a funny joke, enjoying the company of friends and family.
Music, too, can make us smile. Research has found that listening to music triggers the release of dopamine to the brain, the โ€˜happy chemicalโ€™. Itโ€™s also released in anticipation of musical occasions. So in honor of smiling, here are 7 songs about smiles. Sit back, listen, and get ready for an ear-to-ear grin!
1) "Smile" - Nat King Cole
2) When I See Your Smile - Bad English
3) A Wink and a Smile - Harry Connick, Jr.
4) Can't Smile Without You - Barry Manilow
5) You're never Fully Dressed without a Smile - Annie
6) Smile - Lily Allen
7) Your Smiling Face - James Taylor

Which is your favorite?

COVID-19: Can Dentistry Be Part of the Solution?

When the American Dental Association asked dental offices to temporarily close, except for emergencies, on March 16, 2020, little was known about the relationship between oral hygiene and the severity of COVID-19 infections. Since that time, new research is showing that poor oral hygiene can directly affect how patients are able to fight off the disease. The short-term lack of access to preventative dental care now underscores the risk factors that can accompany poor oral hygiene, including diabetes, hypertension, obesity and cardiovascular disease.
One key takeaway is that, with COVID-19 and other viral diseases, inadequate oral hygiene can increase the risk of inter-bacterial exchanges between the lungs and the mouth, increasing the risk of respiratory infections and potentially post-viral bacterial complications.
Good oral hygiene has been recognized as a means to prevent airway infections in patients, especially in those over the age of 70. In fact, studies show that improved oral care can significantly reduce the incidence of ventilator-associated pneumonia in ICU patients.
As the search for COVID-19 treatments and vaccines continues, dentists and hygienists can help patients stay healthy with good communication and education. Oral health is a key factor in helping fight the pandemic. Weโ€™re all in this together. ๐Ÿ˜ท
