Tonight, kids around the country will go trick-or-treating, coming home at the end of the evening with bags and pales full of candy. Dentists find Halloween scary for this very reason: more candy means more cavities. If you’re looking for a way to cut down on how much candy your kids eat this Halloween and want to help brighten the lives of troops serving overseas, TNT Dental wants you to know about the Halloween Candy Buy Back program.
The program is simple. Participating dentists buy back candy from kids in a variety of ways–cash, coupons, toothbrushes, partnerships with local businesses for giveaways…the list goes on. Your kid still gets a Halloween treat in the form of whatever payment your dentist has chosen, and you get to rest assured know that they aren’t eating all that candy! And the candy? The candy is then sent to Operation Gratitude or other military support programs.
So this Halloween, don’t scare your dentist–help him or her help troops enjoy some sweet treats with the Halloween Candy Buy Back Program!
