There's nothing better than going to the dentist!

As a primetime commentator for the 2018 Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea, Olympic gold medalist Tara Lipinski is in the spotlight more than ever. The NBC figure skating analyst and former teenage star of the 1998 Winter Games recently sat down with Dear Doctor – Dentistry and Oral Health magazine to talk about how she keeps her smile camera-ready.

“It’s so important to have a great smile,” she said. “I was always, as an athlete, smiling non-stop. I wore my heart on my sleeve. [My smile] showed the joy and passion and love that I had for my sport, and it was so genuine and real. I love to smile, and I think it’s important—especially when you’re on-air.”
