June 1, 2021 by†AACD Executive Office

AACD Orlando 2022 educator, Susan McMahon, DMD, AAACD, recently published Selfie Culture, Young Adults, and Cosmetic Dentistry: Snapchat Dysmorphia Creates New Aesthetic Demands From Teenagers and Young Adults,†in Dentistry Today.†Dr. McMahon will speak to this topic in Orlando with her presentation, "Selfie Ready: A New Generation for Cosmetic Dentistry."

"So as our social media and selfie culture continues to grow, itís no surprise that more and more young people and adolescents are seeking out cosmetic dentistry as a way to enhance their appearances. The dental world has taken notice, and we need to respond with easy, conservative, and affordable methods to whiten, straighten, and restore smiles. I believe we need to address these patientsí desires for their self-esteem yet always be mindful of their best long-term dental health. This means doing the most conservative treatments while still attaining the smiles they desire. When considering treatment options, conservation of tooth structure should be paramount, especially with younger patients." ~Selfie Culture, Young Adults, and Cosmetic Dentistry: Snapchat Dysmorphia Creates New Aesthetic Demands From Teenagers and Young Adults,†Dentistry Today.
