About Dr Tam

You know that “You never get a second chance to form a first impression.” So it may come as no surprise that the world may assess your openness, friendliness, intelligence, personality and even social status based on your smile.

But, have you ever considered what kind of life long impact your smile has on you as a person, as well as others in your life who are important to you? Your smile not only has a dramatic effect on your physical attractiveness, but your self-esteem.

Your Smile

Your smile is a key part of your unique look, personality and how the world sees you. Therefore, it is a crucial factor in your image, self-expression and how you interact with others. So just imagine – if only for a second — how having an attractive new smile could elevate your confidence, improve your personal relationships, enhance your ability to communicate, and show others the real you!

Surveys have shown us that nine out of ten people agree that an attractive smile is an important social asset, almost 90% of both men and women say they always remember someone with an especially attractive smile. 75% of adults agree that an unattractive smile can hurt someone’s chances for a successful career, and more than eight of ten patients agree that an unattractive smile makes a person less appealing to people of the opposite sex.
