While I would never compare this to the psychological and physical trauma of someone who has experienced domestic violence, my experience taught me how it feels to have your smile taken away, and the impact something as simple as a smile can have on our daily lives. For this reason, I am particularly passionate about the work the amazing folks at Give Back a Smile do day in and day out.

We are so grateful for the opportunity to provide whatever help we can to make a positive difference in the lives of these deserving folks, and are humbled by the support of our DentalPost community and each individual who helped make this contribution possible by donating to our online fundraiser, attending our annual “Go Jump In The Lake” event at Lake Rabun, and participating in our #GoJumpInTheLake photo challenge on social media.
