Maria's Empowering Transformation

August 20, 2015
Posted By: Dr. Joel Gould


Dr. Joel Gould met Maria DiGiovanni through Safe Passage, a non-profit organization helping women and their children break the cycle of domestic abuse. In the past Dr. Gould has provided dental care for the woman of this organization to help them regain their smile back and boost their confidence to rejoin society and the workplace.

Maria DiGiovanni is a survivor of domestic/sexual abuse prom by a law enforcement officer. Maria is now an ambassador for violence against woman. She counsels other survivors into rehabilitation through education and mentorship.

Within the past months Dr. Joel Gould has created a smile transformation on Maria with his new line of cosmetic restorations called the “SUPERMODEL CROWNS”.  Maria had suffered from smile dissonance, her smile was destroyed by domestic violence.

Maria is a survivor who has educated others about domestic violence. Dr. Gould wanted to give her the smile that fit with the new Maria, so that rather than hiding her smile, she could share her message of empowerment with the world.


Maria’s story continues in the newly released Episode 2. Her transformation continues to invigorate and inspire our team. What a treat it is to have such a dedicated and deserving individual in our office. Watch Episode 2 of Maria’s empowering transformation and be prepared to smile along with her!
