The Smile Vortex

When we say that we believe in the magic of a healthy smile, we know that smiles have otherworldly properties that transcend scientific explanation.

Like a vortex drawing matter into its powerful current, smiles are an irresistible force for good that transcend language, culture, age, gender, and economic status. Smile and the whole world magically smiles with you.

The wall artist in this photo was only too happy to smile for our We Believe in Smiles™ camera earlier this month, as he joined painters from all corners of the globe who gathered for the 8th Annual CRUSH WALLS urban art festival held in the River North (RiNo) neighborhood in Denver.

CRUSH includes more than 100 murals spread across ten city blocks; generating tens of thousands of smiling fans during its weeklong celebration.

Whether at the CRUSH WALL event in Denver or Wall, England – a small village and civil parish in Staffordshire – professional WBIS photographers span the globe in search of radiant, life-affirming smiles. Want to see more great smiles, including others taken during the CRUSH WALLS event? You can enjoy an inspiring gallery of more than 475 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.
