Volunteer Dentists
The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry Charitable Foundation's (AACDCF) Give Back a Smile (GBAS) program provides dental care at no cost to survivors of intimate partner violence who have received traumatic dental injuries to their smile-zone as a result of abuse.  Participating dentists will donate their time and talents to restore or replace damaged teeth.  

Bruises and scars fade, but broken teeth cannot repair themselves.  The GBAS program is the only nationwide program serving this unmet need.  We urge you to join us in what may be the most important program you will participate in during your dental career.

FAQ's about becoming a Give Back a Smile Volunteer
Q: Since many of the survivors in this program are female and may have a fear of males because of their past, what can I do, as a male dentist, to ensure the survivor feels like she is being treated in a safe place by a caring professional that wants nothing more than to offer assistance?
