“Your first presentation to any person is the gift of smiling. The value that you place on that is the origin of my statement. Your complete being is represented socially by the way you speak, smile, your general appearance, etc. I truly believe that the state of your oral cavity is an important subliminal communication tool, which if it’s perfect or at least in good appearance and functional order immediately puts stature to your personal presentation.”
