600 Smiles Restored Thanks to the AACDCF's Give Back A Smile Program - October Marks National Domestic Violence Awareness Month
Date:10/9/2007

MADISON, Wis., Oct. 9 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- October marks National Domestic Violence Awareness Month and sadly, more than five million people in the United States are affected by domestic violence each year. These startling statistics reflect why the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry Charitable Foundation's (AACDCF) Give Back A Smile (GBAS) program was created. Its mission: to "restore a life by restoring a smile" by providing free cosmetic dental care to survivors of domestic violence. To date, more than 6,000 AACD dental professionals have volunteered their time and expertise pro bono, 600 cases have been completed for a total dollar value of nearly $5 million and over 300 applicants are being treated throughout the United States.

"After suffering abuse, it is difficult for survivors to find something to smile about, and it's even harder when they don't have a smile to show. Time after time we have witnessed American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (AACD) members assist survivors of domestic violence by treating their dental injuries, restoring their smiles, their self-esteem and their lives," said AACD Foundation Director Erin Roberts. "We are overjoyed that AACD volunteers have given so much of themselves by helping those in need."
