Lo­cal den­tists have teamed up with the YWCA to brighten the smiles of sur­vivors of do­mes­tic vi­o­lence.

Be­yond First Im­pres­sions is a project that con­nects women with den­tists to re­store their dam­aged teeth at no cost.

Den­tists will be vol­un­teer­ing their time and ser­vices for the pro­gram.

Be­yond First Im­pres­sions is a trib­ute to Dr. Ju­dith Buys to hon­our her ser­vice to her com­mu­nity and her sup­port of women and chil­dren through the YWCA Peter­bor­ough Hal­ibur­ton.

Ms. Buys, the founder of Cor­ner­stone Fam­ily Den­tistry, died sud­denly in Au­gust 2016.

Over the years, den­tists and pri­vate donors have raised more than $152,000 in sup­port of the YWCA’s ser­vices.
