Nilo A. Hernandez, Jr., DDS, DICOI, Owner of SmileCreator Of Naples And Best-selling Co-author Writes About People Who May Be Too Comfortable Wearing Masks Due To Teeth They Are Not Smiling About. 

Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, DICOI, best-selling co-author of the book, The Will To Win, with Brian Tracy, and owner of the SmileCreator of Naples, suggests that many people who are a little too happy about having to wear masks in public may not be happy about their teeth.

Naples, FL, January 28, 2021: Owner and CEO of Smilecreator of Naples, Dr. Nilo Hernandez, Jr., DDS, has posted a new blog on his website entitled, “Unmask A Beautiful Smile” Dr. Hernandez launches into his first blog of the year with a suggestion that some people may be too comfortable wearing masks because they are uncomfortable with the condition of their teeth.

Dr. Hernandez states, “I give my patients something to smile about.” He continues, “This has been my purpose as a dentist. I love giving people the ability to smile their brightest smile sometimes after not having been able to smile for a long time! “

As Dr. Hernandez points out, “2020 was a year that made it difficult to smile due to the pandemic and everything else that transpired last year. Wearing protective masks became mandatory out in public. Now,” he adds, “we can’t smile at each other.” Though he says, “We are starting to be able to read when a person is smiling by their eyes.”

According to Dr. Hernandez, “For some people who are insecure about their teeth and the health of their mouth, I imagine the mask has provided a degree of comfort and confidence. Some people may not want to give the mask up. But I have a better suggestion. Why not use this time, while you have to wear the mask, to get your teeth fixed and improve your oral health?”
