Our Core Values
Want to help?
Mission The AACDCF assists in rebuilding the smiles and lives of adults who’ve suffered dental injuries from domestic and sexual violence, through compassionate cosmetic dental services and support programs.
Give Back a Smile
The Give Back a Smile (GBAS) program launched May 27, 1999. Since then, AACD member dentists, dental laboratories, and other dental professionals have volunteered their time and expertise pro bono, to restore the damaged smiles of more than 1,400 survivors of intimate partner violence for a total dollar value of more than $14 million. There are currently more than 250 applicants that are being treated throughout the United States and Canada.
We are excited to announce that GBAS eligibility has expanded from only assisting survivors of intimate partner violence to also serving adult women and men who have received dental injuries to the smile-zone only from a family member or sexual violence.
