joins orthodontists nationwide in the fight against bullying
for National Bullying Prevention Month
Teeth have often been reported as a main feature targeted by bullies, as shown in this study that appeared in American Journal of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics.
Founded in 2010, Stand for the Silent is a nonprofit that has fast become one of the leading and most effective anti-bullying organizations. They have reached more than 1,505,000 kids in nearly 1,500 schools. The mission is simple – bring awareness to bullying and the real devastation it causes.
“I pledge to take a stand against bullying. I will be the change, because I am somebody!”
Stand for the Silent runs solely off donations from those who support its mission. Interested in sponsoring a Stand for the Silent presentation at a school near you? Learn more at standforthesilent.org/schools/host-a-presentation.
