Several months ago, I ran into a friend I had not seen in over ten years. We chatted for several minutes before we both had to scurry off. However, every time I think of him now, all I can remember throughout our conversation was her bad breath!
However, working in an office near someone who has bad breath can seem like a daily punishment. And, worse yet, that ‘someone’ may be YOU! Remember, bad breath can be offensive and leave a lasting impression.
I recently read the results of a consumer survey by the American Association of Periodontists and found it NOT surprising that:
• 32% of Americans say bad breath is the least attractive trait of their co-workers.
That’s nearly a third of all Americans in the job market! Yet, the survey also revealed that:
• 73% of Americans would rather go grocery shopping than floss.
When I consider how little time each day that the act of flossing actually requires, I’m shocked. For some reason, adults dread daily flossing more than the chore of the cart, crowds, and lines of a grocery store! If you struggle with being able to floss comfortably and efficiently, ask our Hygienists for help at your next visit.
The survey also stated that:
• 50% consider a smile is the first feature they notice
• 80% are not happy with their own smile
