Write your own ticket to happiness, and if the first draft doesn’t pan out, erase it and begin again. Smiling helps.

Pundits from Vincent Van Gogh to Stan Laurel have waxed poetic on the virtues of a simple graphite-embedded stick of wood – no moving parts – to channel creativity. Somewhat more complicated, a digital camera is likewise a creativity tool, ideally suited to celebrate life’s most precious moments and smiles.

Whether in Pencil Bluff, Arkansas, home of the Ouachita River Haven Resort, or watching passersby enjoy street art in Portland, Oregon, professional WBIS photographers span the globe in search of radiant, life-affirming smiles. You can enjoy an inspiring gallery of more than 500 WBIS photos here.

Daily on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook, the We Believe in Smiles™ campaign posts a fresh portrait of an individual (or individuals) who reminds us all of the magic of a healthy smile. DOCS Education is proud to be the founding global sponsor of WBIS, whose message is simple: No politics. No marketing. No B.S.
