Abstract

Domestic violence is a grim reality, and is very much prevalent in our Indian society. Cases of violence against females are very common and most of the times they go unreported as the females feel hesitant in reporting this abuse. Domestic violence can be of any type, it can be physical, sexual or emotional. Most of the times the victims of domestic violence are females, hence in this paper the issues are addressed keeping a female in mind. As a health professional, an oral and maxillofacial surgeon is sometimes the first witness to domestic violence, hence as a responsible citizen it is our duty to report any such cases and get the concerned individual out of misery and suffering.
