Introducing the Give Back a Smile Fall Super Challenge

September 24, 2019 by AACD Executive Office

Join the Fall Super Challenge!

A supercharged Give Back a Smile Whitening Competition starts in October, which for those of you who didn't know is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, and ends December 31st, 2019. Participants can brighten their smiles while saving someone else’s.

Here’s how it works: 

  • Kulzer donates whitening materials

  • Participating dental offices donate their time to whiten patients’ teeth. 

  • 100% of what patients pay for whitening supports survivors of domestic violence through the Give Back a Smile program. 

  • The dental office that raises the most money from whitening between October 1 and December 31, 2019 wins Amazon Gift Cards for the entire team (up to ten)!


It’s also a great holiday gift idea!

Please note, the annual Whitening Challenge is still available for participation year-round.



The Quantitative Impact of the Whitening Challenge

GBAS patient = A survivor of domestic violence

One whitening = Transportation for one GBAS patient to and from their dental appointments

Five whitenings = A complete smile restoration for one GBAS patient
