Swap some candy and support our troops!
Let’s face it—trick-or-treating is fun, cavities are not. Instead of gobbling up all those sweet treats, get your kids to do something even sweeter with their stash. In the annual Halloween Candy Buy Back, dentists “buy back” candy from generous youngsters in exchange for cash, coupons, or other creative currencies. The collected candy is then distributed to military support groups and shipped to service members abroad. To learn more about this wonderful initiative, which is now in its 12th year, go to www.HalloweenCandyBuyBack.com.
