Survey Finds Smile Is "Most Attractive" Physical Feature

 A recent survey finds the smile to be the most attractive physical feature, so make like Chad Ochocino after last night's big win and flash those pearly whites! The smile outranked eyes, hair, and the body as the most fascinating physical feature in others. Though males and females both ranked the smile as the most appealing feature in others, the genders differed when it came to looking after their teeth and gums. Of the representative sample surveyed, 86% of women vs. only 66% men said that they brush their teeth twice or more daily while only 49% of those surveyed declared they floss their teeth once every day or more. “We need to constantly get the word out how crucial it is to keep on top of your oral health,” announces Ada Cooper, DDS, an ADA consumer advocate and practicing dentist.
