Date:10/13/2009

ucts the initial review of the application; however, the dentist has the final say as to the eligibility of the applicant.
  • If eligible, the AACD connects the survivor with a local GBAS volunteer who provides treatment at no charge to the recipient.
  • Restore a Life. Restore a Smile.

    As the national economy entered its deepest recession in almost 100 years, many across the country felt the increased stress, which resulted in a sharp rise in domestic violence. According to the National Coalition of Domestic Violence, 75% of battering occurs to the head and face. This means the dental office is in an extremely influential position to intervene and help stop the violence. In addition to the GBAS program, the AACDCF offers the Domestic Violence Intervention & Prevention (DVIP) program. This program offers a free video to dental professionals interested in learning from an expert how to approach difficult situations in the dental practice when domestic violence is suspected.
