Dr. Anderson: Great Smile Offers Advantage at Job Interviews
First posted 7/16/2009; updated 8/27/2013
(Lake Conroe, TX)Before scheduling interviews with prospective employers, job applicants may want to make an appointment with their dentist. With so many people in the market for a new job, career counselors advise that being properly prepared for the interview is key. Do your homework; learn about the company and its people, they suggest. Counselors also advise candidates to pay attention to their physical appearance.
In fact, career counselors argue that a great smile can go a long way in making a positive first impression.
Montgomery Dentist Joseph Anderson says that a good dentist can correct crooked, decayed or discolored teeth -- all physical traits that can distract an interviewer from seeing the real "you." “Of course, I notice teeth right away,” Dr. Anderson explains, “but I think everyone does.A great smile just sends a positive message, and that seems like an important statement to make at a job interview.” Creating a healthy smile may require teeth whitening, porcelain veneers or restorative work.Orthodontic work may also be advised. Dr. Anderson has practiced family and cosmetic dentistry in the Lake Conroe area since 1983 and is an active member of the American Dental Association, Texas Dental Association, Brazos Valley District Dental Society and the International Association of Orthodontics.“A nice smile, however, is just the finishing touch,” Anderson said.He explains that a good smile is his way of knowing he has done his job correctly, ensuring a healthy mouth.
A regular cleaning at the dentist is also time to check for diseases, oral cancer, joint problems and even bad habits, like teeth grinding which can lead to migraine headaches.“A great smile can leave a positive impression and even sway opinions,” Anderson said.“A visit to the dentist is not only an investment in good health, it’s also a way to open new doors.” For more information, visit www.lakeconroesmiles.com or call Joseph R.
