Smile! It's the Perfect Week to do it!

By Jill Hamilton on August 7, 2012 in Just for Kicks


The expressions you make with your face go a long way to projecting your mood to the people around you. Someone with a scowl might be harder to approach compared with someone who has a smile.

Here at Delta Dental of Iowa, we believe in celebrating the smile! It is one facial expression that shows everyone around the kind of mood you are in!you that you are enjoying the activity you are participating in. Whether it is an interesting conversation or watching your favorite movie, everyone has at least one thing in their life that causes them to smile.

In honor of National Smile Week (Aug 5-11) we asked our employees to tell us about one thing that makes them smile. Read on for their reasons!
