Despite the overdose of all things Charlie Sheen in 2011, we’d like to take this opportunity to commend the much-maligned thespian (depending on your view of much-maligned) for tackling some nagging dental health issues in 2012.
According to some recent tabloid TV-slash-world-wide-webternet-gossip-giants – DailyMail.co.uk & TMZ.com, seems Mr. Sheen reached out to long-time dental connection, Dr. Kevin Sands – also known as the “Dentist to the Stars.”
From this photo here, we can no longer see the formerly missing molar…or was it an incisor?
A gap toothed smile is no way to land your next TV role, endorsement deal, or any kind of gainful employment!
Form follows function with a missing tooth and cosmetic dentistry.
Maybe we’re all not so lucky to have a dentist to the stars on speed dial, but we could all be so lucky as to have a dentist that cares enough the share the important dental health news more than the two times per year we’re actually sitting in their chair.
So the next time your dentist cares enough to send a postcard or text message, or even a friend request on Facebook, don’t be so quick to dismiss the opportunity to save money on regular dental care, and/or cosmetic dentistry elective services.
And give your dentist some social dental street cred; subscribe to their blog, leave them a review online, post a message to their Facebook wall, follow them on Twitter…you never know, it could mean reduced dental health costs in your near future.
Don’t let the dental paparazzi catch you with a less than stellar smile!
