October is everyone’s favorite month for fall foliage, bonfires, and everything pumpkin. And don’t forget about candy… lots and lots of candy! As you start planning for your little trick-or-treaters Halloween happenings, mark your calendar for November 1st – 9th when we’ll once again be holding our annual Halloween Candy Buyback!
Your favorite ghost or goblin can bring their excess candy to Family Laser and Cosmetic Dentistry and receive $1 per pound. Kids can still have all of the fun of trick-or-treating, and now their piggy banks will benefit as well.
The collected candy will then be sent to our troops in time for the holidays. Each child is eligible to receive $1 per pound up to ten (10) pounds for all unopened, uneaten candy. Plus, we will provide paper and writing utensils and coloring tools for anyone that would like to create a letter or draw a picture for our service members.
With so much candy being passed out to trick or treaters and partygoers over the Halloween season, sometimes too much of a good thing is, well, too much. As with many things, moderation is key as candy can promote tooth decay and damage to teeth and braces. The importance of healthy eating and great dental hygiene are key elements of your child’s overall health. Call (248) 852-3130 for more information.
