Having a great smile isn’t just a big deal on picture day. Research shows
that kids with straight smiles develop more self-esteem at a young age, with lasting effects when they’re teenagers and adults.
When meeting someone new or introducing yourself in class, you can boost your confidence
by flashing a bright smile.
Having a confident smile can even help outside of school, with things like auditioning for a role in a play, making a new friend, or trying out for a sports team.
