New York City Dentist Builds Confidence And Careers With A Smile
Posted on January 1, 2014 in
Dr. Michael Kosdon uses procedures such as porcelain veneers to instill patients with a beautiful smile and the self-esteem to excel in the workplace and in their personal lives.
New York, NY – Dr. Michael Kosdon believes that a beautiful smile is an asset for people in all aspects of life. Because the condition of a smile can be directly tied to self-esteem and confidence, he says the state of a smile can impact everything from a patient’s career to patient’s personal life. At Dr. Kosdon’s New York cosmetic dentistry practice, treatments such as porcelain dental veneers and teeth whitening are giving patients a new smile along with a new outlook on life.
In a recent blog series on the connection between a person’s smile and confidence, Dr. Kosdon details how the cosmetic appearance of a smile both affects an individual’s behavior and how that individual might be viewed by others. “I believe that a smile can say volumes about a person,” says Dr. Kosdon in a post titled “How Smiles Can Earn You Confidence And More.” “When people with nice, clean, healthy smiles come in for an interview, it can make a real difference to a prospective employer.” He goes on to link this initial first impression of a person based on their smile to how that first impression can impact a job interview. Ultimately, Dr. Kosdon trusts that a smile can make or break an employer’s decision between two equally qualified candidates.
In a follow-up post titled “Case Study: Porcelain Veneers And Professionalization,” Dr. Kosdon gives a specific example of a patient who received porcelain veneers to enhance his professional appearance in the workplace. While Dr. Kosdon notes that this particular patient did not suffer from a lack of confidence, he did feel that his smile – which showed an excessive amount of gum tissue and crooked, stained teeth – may be causing his coworkers and his employers to take him less seriously as a professional. As an added benefit, Dr. Kosdon highlights that porcelain veneers are one of the fastest methods available to dramatically improve a patient’s appearance.
This improved appearance can have advantages that extend beyond the workplace. In the final installment in the series, titled “Case Study: Porcelain Veneers For Your Personal Life,” Dr. Kosdon tells the story of a patient who used cosmetic dental work as a means to improve her entire life. Before visiting Dr. Kosdon, the patient felt embarrassed by the sight of her smile, didn’t have the self-esteem to focus much on her appearance, and suffered from an overall lack of confidence. However, her new smile was the beginning of a new life. According to the New York City dentist: “Once we fixed her teeth, she began taking better care of herself, and in the end she found the confidence to make some important changes to her lifestyle. The dental work was literally a catalyst that changed her life – and I have so many patients who have returned to my practice to report similar success stories.”
