GIVE BACK A SMILE FOUNDATION – Restore a Smile, Restore a Life
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 1,100 survivors of intimate partner violence for a total dollar value of more than $10 million. There are currently more than 350 applicants that are being treated throughout the United States and Canada.

Together, they offer professional teeth whitening services at substantially reduced prices (donations) with 100% OF THE PROCEEDS GOING TO CHILDREN’S CHARITIES.
