In a world that moves ever-increasingly amidst the challenges and daily grind, one universal symbol transcends cultures, languages, and borders: the humble smile.
At Brentwood Village Dental Clinic, we’ve had the privilege of crafting and preserving these smiles for years. As we approach World Smile Day on Oct. 6, 2023, we contemplate the deep impact of the bright smiles in our community!
About Word Smile Day
In 1963, Harvey Ball from Worcester, Massachusetts, created the iconic smiley face symbol that became globally recognized. At the same time, the symbol has been featured in various media, like ‘Forest Gump’ and ‘Watchmen’; its original design with an oblong smile slightly differs from modern versions.
Over time, the smiley’s intent of spreading cheer got diluted. To restore its original spirit, Harvey instituted World Smile Day in 1999. The day emphasizes smiling and performing acts of kindness to uplift others.
The Power of a Smile
A smile, more than just a simple curve of the lips, serves as a silent messenger. It fosters trust, with frequent smilers often seen as more trustworthy. Smiling boosts well-being by releasing endorphins and serotonin, enhancing mood, reducing stress, and even lowering heart rate.
Here are simple things to keep in mind for World Smile Day 2023:
- Smile More – Simple as it sounds, challenge yourself to smile more. Share your joy with the world.
- Acts of Kindness – World Smile Day is rooted in acts of kindness. Whether it’s a simple gesture or a grand deed, let it bring a smile to someone’s face.
- Prioritize Oral Health – Book a check-up. Ensure your smile remains radiant, and understand the importance of oral health in overall well-being.
Moreover, a smile can connect strangers, creating an immediate bond with the people of our communities.
