If you ever worried about going to the dentist, you’re not alone.
Nearly 25 percent of Americans are afraid of going to the dentist, and about three quarters of Americans face some anxiety about dental visits. This fear can cause a person to lose sleep or it can ruin a person’s meal, a person’s day, or even life.
That’s why television producers, who have seen countless reality shows succeed, want to cultivate that fear and turn into a show. “Smile and Style” is what the show will be called and it will be about trying to improve the dental health of the average person.
The show will seek to boost the self-esteem of the individuals on the show, who will be selected based on their dental fears. This problem could have affected their everyday life and prevented them from getting the dental care they need to have the smile and confidence necessary for success. Some of the people on the show may not have the means to afford the dental work they need.
