Local Dentists Buying Candy After Halloween

Two local pediatric dentist offices are doing their part this Halloween by collecting candy to send to the troops or other needy friends after the big day is over.

According the the National Retail Federation, $6.9 billion is the estimated amount of money Americans shelled out for Halloween last year,  around $2 billion of that went for candy!  That is allot of cavities waiting to happen. We are ready to help keep your kids from having all that candy stick to their teeth.  Halloween CANDY BUY-BACK is scheduled for Tuesday  November 6 from 10am – 12 noon and 4-6 pm in our office.  We will pay $1 per pound to a max of 10 pounds per child.  The candy will go to the troops, Friends of the Homeless, and other underpriviledged children.  There is no school that day and while you get out to vote, bring your children in with their candy.

We are very excited to announce our second annual Halloween Candy Buy Back to benefit our overseas military troops. Last year we collected close to 500 pounds of candy from the children in our community. We enjoyed watching the children weigh each pound of candy and see their smiling faces when they received cash and prizes in return. Here’s how to participate:

  1. Go trick-or-treating! Have fun and be safe!
  2. Bring your extra candy to our office between Thursday, November 1 – Wednesday, November 7th.
  3. We’ll exchange each pound of candy for cash and prizes.
  4. We’ll make sure that the candy is shipped overseas to our troops.

Thanks to both of these great pediatric dental practices for helping our troops and for helping us keep our kids’ teeth strong and healthy!
