National Poetry Month: Our Tribute to the Smile

an ode to smiles

The smile is one of the most powerful features of the human face. It conveys meaning and emotions in an instant. It can catch the eye of that special someone or soothe the tears of your little child.

Throughout history, smiles have inspired artists and the arts, sparking the inspiration that has led to famous paintings, beautiful songs, and even the writing of poems. As your Vancouver dentist, we have been so inspired by smiles that we have dedicated our profession and our passion to caring for them. Whether keeping them healthy or restoring or beautifying them, we wake up every day motivated by the impact a healthy, happy smile can have on the lives of individuals and entire communities.

This April is National Poetry Month. We would like to take this opportunity to demonstrate our love for pearly whites by sharing with you some of our favorite quotes and sayings about smiles.

The Smile

By William Blake

There is a Smile of Love
And there is a Smile of Deceit
And there is a Smile of Smiles
In which these two Smiles meet

And there is a Frown of Hate
And there is a Frown of Disdain
And there is a Frown of Frowns
Which you strive to forget in vain

For it sticks in the Hearts deep Core
And it sticks in the deep Back bone
And no Smile that ever was smild
But only one Smile alone

That betwixt the Cradle & Grave
It only once Smild can be
But when it once is Smild
Theres an end to all Misery
