Is smiling the secret to success?
It’s hard not to notice the dazzling smiles displayed by celebrities, high-ranking politicians, business leaders and other successful people around the world. If you have ever thought those winning smiles played a role in the success of those people, you are not alone. Researchers have conducted many studies over the course of several decades, and concluded that smiles have a significant impact on people’s confidence, as well as the way that people judge them.

A groundbreaking study in 1970 suggested that people with charming smiles are thought of as more intelligent and happier. Several studies beginning in 2002 confirmed and expanded on those findings. One of the most recent studies, performed in 2012, examined social media profile pictures of college freshmen, and found a strong co-relation between facial expressions, and reported life-satisfaction nearly four years later. Perhaps the most remarkable smile survey to date was performed in 2010, with findings indicating that happy, smiling individuals may live longer.

These are just a few more reasons to love your smile, take care of it, and use it often.

Sleep Apnea News
Is Obstructive Sleep Apnea causing commercial airline pilots to become too sleepy?
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) just recently announced that it will publish new medical guidance for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) in March 2015 for commercial airline pilots to help insure the safety of airline passengers.

Reports estimate that 90% of those with sleep apnea are going undiagnosed. And just like airline pilots, automobile drivers are 6 times more likely to be involved in a car accident due to the drowsiness of sleep apnea. There is a simple questionnaire to determine ones risk, and if needed we can provide a simple and convenient home sleep testing device to confirm whether or not you have sleep apnea. Be safe and call us for more information.
