    CHICAGO, Feb. 21 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following was issued
 today by the Chicago Dental Society:
 
 
 
     Who: The Chicago Dental Society (CDS) recently polled more than 300
 dentists about issues such as their own dental habits, adults seeking
 braces, and how the current presidential candidates' smiles rate.
 
 
 
     As we countdown to CDS's annual Midwinter Meeting, one of the largest
 displays of dental products in North America, here are some of the topline
 findings from the survey.
 
 
 
     Obama and Edwards: too close to call? Of Democratic presidential
 candidates, U.S. Senators Barack Obama and John Edwards (now out of the
 race) were neck and neck for votes for 'best smile' from dentists, with 38
 percent and 36 percent of the vote, respectively.
 
 
 
     Republican Mitt Romney's (now out of the race) smile wins by a
 landslide. Dentists gave more than 45 percent of their votes to the former
 governor and Republican presidential candidate's toothy grin. Remaining
 Republican candidates John McCain and Mike Huckabee didn't stand a chance
 garnering only 6 and 10 percent of the votes each.
 
 
 
     Adults are bringing braces back. More than 85 percent of dentists
 surveyed are finding more adult patients considering braces or orthodontic
 treatment--particularly women, according to nearly 80 percent of dentists.
 
 
 
     Child birth really is tougher than pulling teeth, according to a
 majority of dentists surveyed, hoping to debunk the idiom used to describe
 extremely difficult tasks. "Raising teenagers" came in a close second.
 
 
 
     Why: Data was collected for the Chicago Dental Society's 143rd annual
 Midwinter Meeting, which begins at McCormick Place in Chicago on February
 21, 2007. The exhibit floor opens on February 22.
