Welcome to Midlands Smile Centres June newsletter. This month's issue contains information on Working at MSC, Smile Feedback, The Importance of your Smile and Staying Hydrated.
The Importance of Your Smile
Studies have shown that when you first meet someone, the first thing you notice about them is their teeth and smile. No matter whether you're aware of it, we all intuitively form views of people from their smile. There's a greater chance that you'll like someone if they have a full and bright smile.
This can also influence how old you think they are. Other studies have shown that someone who has good teeth could look around 12 years younger than if they had bad teeth. So if you're looking for something that can help make you look younger, then tooth whitening or corrective treatment could be for you.
It's important to stay hydrated during this hot period of the year. Drinking plenty of water is a good way to be hydrated, and also look after your dental hygiene. However, you should only drink when you're thirsty, as excessive intake could be harmful.
Being dehydrated will cause you to produce less saliva. Saliva is great for your mouth as it fights against germs and bad breath, and also helps protect your mouth against tooth decay and gum disease. Remember to look after yourself by staying hydrated in this warm weather.
If you've recently had an appointment at one of our branches, how about letting us know how we did?
By leaving feedback you can help us improve our services and let other people know about us. Leaving feedback takes just a few minutes, and really helps us to help you.

Read what our staff have to say about working at Midlands Smile Centres:
I have worked for MSC for almost 10 years now. I have always felt that any effort I put into my job role has always been recognised and appreciated. As head receptionist I feel that the team always pull together and help each other out. The longer you remain with the company the more benefits you see.
