Dr. Haji Wins “Restoring Smiles” Award
Thank you to Restoring Smiles and Dr. Tina Meisami
I was quite taken by surprise to receive an award for my work with Restoring Smiles. It has been an honour and privilege to be a part of an amazing team of dentists and volunteers who want to give back.
Restoring Smiles provides free dental services to women who have survived domestic violence. Patients self-identify as survivors of domestic abuse, and all are currently living in shelters or supportive housing.
Restoring Smiles’ goal is to eliminate pain, restore function and proper speech, and to some degree, alleviate the emotional trauma that arises as a result of domestic violence. The group provides dental treatment as a concrete and real way to help end our patients’ experience with domestic violence and to support her recovery process.
