The American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry Charitable Foundation's (AACDCF) Give Back a Smile (GBAS) program provides dental care at no cost to adult survivors of domestic and sexual violence who have received traumatic dental injuries 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.
Give Back a Smile values the importance of trauma-informed care. Please click here to view a short video on how to implement trauma-informed approach in your office.
*Please note that the GBAS program is only available in the United States and Canada.
Laboratories can help restore lives by donating laboratory work necessary to restore smiles. Volunteer laboratory participation is vital to the GBAS program's success and can be a gratifying experience as you share your resources and talents with a survivor in need.
