Smile! You’re on K104 Radio…

When it comes to achieving that million dollar smile, there’s no one quite like Dr. Jacquie Smiles who knows how to get the job done. As a kid, I remember being so insecure about my mouth full of metal, but today, Dr. Jacquie is helping us kiss traditional braces goodbye and say hello to Invisalign Teen — something 14-year-old me would have welcomed with open arms.

“Invisalign Teen is fantastic. It’s removable,” Dr. Jacquie explained to K104 radio show. “You don’t have to have those braces stuck and rubbing your teeth. You don’t have to have any food restrictions — you can have all of the corn on the cob, even all summer long, that you want. It’s really great. There’s a blue compliance indicator on it that allows teens to go from blue to clear, telling the teenagers, the parents, and also me, that they’re wearing it.”

Plus, aside from perfecting her patient’s teeth, Dr. Jacquie also works her magic on her own mouth. Yup, you read that right — she actually does her own teeth, which is how K104 put it “like a surgeon doing surgery on themselves.” Talk about being the real deal!

Still, her set of skills do not stop there. While Dr. Jacquie initially started her practice on Park Avenue in Manhattan, she’s since inherited her favorite professor and mentor’s practice in Monroe Township, New Jersey, and has also expanded to opening offices in both Nassau and Suffolk counties in Long Island.

Even more impressive is the fact that not only does Dr. Jacquie perform the Invisalign procedure, but she actually teaches it too.

“I’m on faculty for align technologies,” she explained to K104. “There’s 55,000 doctors certified in North America and 24 faculty members, so it’s an honor and a privilege.”

While it’s clear that Dr. Jacquie is the woman to trust with your pearly whites, many fear that they may not be able to afford her services — luckily, Dr. Jacquie informed K104 that may not necessarily be the case.

Aside from regularly running contests where she awards winners with top-notch dental work valued between $5,500-$7,500, Dr. Jacquie also revealed to K104 that many people actually do have orthodontic coverage — they just don’t know it. Even better? She says that if your insurance covers orthodontics, it should also cover Invisalign.

If you’re one of the many who are unsure whether or not your insurance will cover Dr. Jacquie’s services, there’s one very easy way to find out — just call one of her offices and her staff will find the answer for you!

Like Dr. Jacquie Smiles puts it: “straighten teeth, have more confidence.” So, what are you waiting for?

Social Media, Surgery & Smiles

Influenced by the power of the hashtag, our culture’s appetite for perfect Instagram bodies submerging our feeds have spawned an alarming number of individuals to seek out cosmetic enhancement and plastic surgery procedures. Heaps of selfies and flawlessly fit photos have transformed social media into a boundless marketplace for the industry to flourish in.

How is a person’s confidence and self-esteem not supposed to be affected by such unnatural, filtered standards and unobtainable aesthetics constantly ‘viralling’ out of control? Of course, we are going to be dissatisfied with our physical. We can’t help ourselves by comparison. Yet, we all choose to ignore the one obvious realization. Social media is simply public perception. None of this is legitimate.

More effective than traditional platforms for advertising, both the InstaCeleb and the leading professionals create exposure through their fan-base of followers. Figures like Kim Kardashian, fitness models, fashion moguls and pretend somebodies have all taken to Instagram to download photos of their coveted curves or smoothed out faces. From basic make-up tutorials guiding your contour to some of the most extreme before and after results are all being delivered directly to the hand-held devices of authoritative beauty bloggers and their extended communities.

Generations of the past were much more discreet about the work they were having done. In prior decades, individuals who opted for a little nip and tuck would slip away for about a week or so only to turn up appearing miraculously rejuvenated. Nothing like some ‘R&R’ to reclaim your youthful look right? Wrong. Society was hip to your game. However, now our enlightened adolescents have no shame in injecting some filler, plumping up their pout, and minutes later showing off their new look on the Gram. Many young women are even being paid via dermal fillers to promote these serums and formulas as an avenue to boost sales among med-spas and practices.

Beauty seekers are eager to get in on the action. They are able to target large demographics without even having to try very hard. Our notoriously self-obsessed upbringing leads many women and men too willing to share information and happily document their plastic journey across the Internet.

Whether for attention, or almost a sense of civic duty to exchange reviews of their experience, a new breed of clients have been born, alongside their supplements, Fit Teas and teeth whitening kits.

Support on these networking channels can be as big of a driving force into these plastic procedures as is the negative backlash. With ever-evolving technology between both plastic surgery and innovative media tools, both women and men desire the ability to track their progress behind total perfection. Individuals will forever crave the satisfaction with ‘likes’ and followers, solidifying their level of attractiveness. From inflated lips to inflated egos, social media is the ideal visual solution the cosmetic plastic surgery field has been waiting for.
