National Smile Month came to an end yesterday in Great Britian. When asked what makes us smile the most, a simple bar of chocolate topped the list this year, followed by “seeing a loved one.”
Half of the respondents in a national survey listed chocolate in their list, with 60 percent of women making it their top choice. Dr. Nigel Carter, chief of the British Dental Health Foundation, headed the campaign to raise awareness for dental health.
Although chocolate is not the best thing for your teeth, if you brush, floss and see your dentist regularly, a small treat (enjoyed in moderation) will certainly bring a smile to many faces for years to come.
