Program offers free dental work for domestic violence victims
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.
