Even though some kids might not enjoy getting raisins or apples in their bags when it comes to trick-or-treating on Halloween, they will certainly perk up about getting money and helping a great cause!
Plaza Dental is doing their annual Halloween Candy Buy Back Program, allowing kids to get up to $1 for each pound of candy they bring in. Considering how much candy your kids can accumulate while trick-or-treating, this can be some serious cash!
The candy that is brought to Plaza Dental either on Thursday, October 31st from 3-5 PM or Monday, November 4th from 3-5 PM will be shipped overseas to help bring Halloween to our active military troops. These brave men and women don't get to celebrate this time of the year with their own families and now this is a great way to bring a little bit of home to our troops.
Halloween is certainly about candy, and because of that, Plaza Dental understands that sometimes your kids consuming candy is going to be inevitable. That shouldn't stop you and your family from enjoying the right kind of candy though. Rather than letting children mostly eat gummy or very sugary candy, they can instead enjoy hard candies or sugar-free candies that can help with stimulating saliva and preventing dry mouth. Other candy choices that are better for your children include sugar-free gum and dark chocolate.
The Cash for Candy Program has been a hit locally and also helps to spread information on proper dental care for the entire family all year round, not just during Halloween. Bring in your candy now!
