You’d THINK in this day and age, people wouldn’t be embarrassed to be a little chubby . . . since EVERYONE’S a little chubby. But our unnecessary body image issues just won’t go away.
A new survey asked people if they’d rather go to the dentist or wear a bathing suit this summer. And 33% picked the DENTIST.
The survey also found 46% of people don’t feel confident about their body . . . but 76% realize they’re more critical of how they look than anyone else.
If you’re wondering why so many people insecure about how they look, maybe this is it: Another survey found 57% of Americans have tried to eat healthy and exercise this year but something knocked them off track.
The top four things that derailed them are: Plans changing last minute . . . demands at work . . . unexpected guests . . . and delays when they’re traveling.

There’s a dentist who says we’ve all been brushing our teeth wrong our whole lives. And I know it seems crazy to take this one guy’s advice over every other dentist in HISTORY, but let’s just hear this lunatic out, okay?
Most people brush, floss, then rinse. Or brush, rinse, then floss. Right?
Well, Dr. Matthew Lloyd is a dentist in England, and he says you should do the whole thing in REVERSE: Floss first to get food particles loose . . . then rinse with mouthwash . . . THEN brush your teeth.
Quote, “It’s better to remove plaque and food debris with floss before rinsing the bacteria away with mouth wash.
“Ideally, you should finish your oral care routine by brushing your teeth. That way, the toothpaste says in contact with your teeth and gums for longer and will provide better protection.”

My dentist told me I needed a crown
My dentist told me I needed a crown. I was like I KNOW, RIGHT?
While Cecil the lion’s killer — Minnesota dentist Walter Palmer — is facing a defaced home, a shuttered business and possible criminal charges in Zimbabwe, Hagerty says she and her husband are enjoying a far friendlier response to their approach to the natural world.
“We like people to smile,” she says. “We’re not here to hurt you.”
So, you may wonder: What does this more-gentle dentist do for fun, if killing majestic animals isn’t his bag?
Hagerty says her husband is a fan of several non-blood sports, including softball and college football.
He loves the Arkansas Razorbacks, and, in what might be seen as a big-game “ironic twist,” Hagerty says, chuckling, “he’s an Auburn Tigers fan.”
