Atlanta Smiles Foundation Reaching Out To Fellow Female Dentists
ATLANTA (Sept. 12) – Dr. Dina Giesler D.D.S., M.A.G.D. and a handful of specialty dentists have treated more than 75 women within the Atlanta Smiles Foundation. To ensure the growing number of women receive the treatment that is necessary, and happily offered, Giesler is reaching out to all women dentists in the metro-Atlanta area to lend a helping hand.
Giesler established the Atlanta Smiles Foundation back in 2006 to aide those who have suffered from domestic violence. “There is an unfortunate number of women who are expected to be silent and it is time that our community is aware,” Giesler acknowledged.
Its mission is to help survivors of domestic abuse reclaim their self-esteem, their sense of value and their lives by providing dental and facial reconstruction services, giving them a smile with which to face the world.
Currently, Giesler treats Foundation patients on her own with the help of Dr. Gordon Brady, D.D.S. and Dr. Mollie Winston, D.D.S., both oral surgeons. However, as the Foundation continues to expand, the number of applicants does too.
Nearly 250 letters have been sent to women dentists in the surrounding Atlanta area. Within days responses were returned, eager to help.
