Dentist says Nixon's
smile spelled trouble

THE MICHIGAN DAILY

Thursday, July t 1, 1974

HONOTUIILU (UPI) - Dr. Ro-
bert Gibson maintains he knew
President Nixon wouldn't have
a smooth road in the White
hIouse once he had seen him
smile.
Gibson, win contends that
smiling is a basic form of body
language, said he also knew
Nixon would defeat Sen. George
McGovern for the presidency
because 'Nixon has a hig smile,
and McGovern has a rather
bland one-"
"NIXON'S SMILE showed
strength," Gibson said in an in-
terview, bt a "'threatening cus-
pid, the pointy tooth, shouldn't
be quite as pointy.,as President
Nixon's.
"A slightly rounded cuspid
lakes away the sharp look,'
t;ibson said. "It's friendlier
Nixon has a hig smile, but it
i~sn't necessarily a sincere one'
The 46-year-old dentist w h it
specializes in caping teeth said
he hecaine interested in sitiles
years ago when he saw that his
patients weren't displaying his
twork to the he't advantage.
"FOR YEARS I've been dig
cosmielic reconstruction,'' Gib-
sun said "1 ctin understand
people covering nit piutir teeth,
but even after the iwork was
done, many patients still were
not showing their teeth when

they smiled."
So Gibson started explaining
to his patients during their
treatments "how important
smsiles are, how they are a way
of showing others the best in
you."
"A good smile comes from the
inide out," he said, "starting
way deep down in your heart
and ending in the smile in your
eyes."
WHILE CAPPING your teeth,
Gibson would tell his patients
about the techniques he has
developed to improve a smile.
Many were pleased with the re-
stits of his advice and word
spread.
"You want your smIte to re-
flect the hest in you," he said.
"You can say what you want
about yourself through a smile.
I tell my patients that every
morning after they've finished
brushing their teeth, t h e y
should smile up a storm
stand in frost of the mirror,
start with a small smile, and
wurk tip ii l i big witty of a
st ile."
lIe ha one idditional sit f
advice: if a person can't learti
to smile attractively in 30 dats
in a natural way, he or she
should stop the exercise because
"overtrying" will develop a
phon,' smile.

Be Caffelilwith fire.

Like babes everywhere.
So, please, be careful with fire when
you're in the forest.

pauses during his State of the Union address before a joint
session of Congress last January. Dentist Robert Gibson main-
tains that it was this smile, particularly the "threatening
cuspid," which fortold of Nixon's current problems.
