to find a participating dentist near you.
With the annual Halloween Candy Buyback event, dentists have found a way to keep the fun in the holiday, while helping kids and our troops deployed overseas.
How does the program work?
• Participating dentists "buy" back kids' Halloween candy with cash, coupons, toothbrushes, creative exchanges - They can partner with local businesses to give away coupons for food, services, goods, etc. They can give away the Hygiene Kits, they can set up an Opportunity Prize -- each kid gets a ticket per pound of candy for an opportunity drawing to win special prizes, etc.
• Dentists send the candy to Operation Gratitude or other Military support groups
• Operation Gratitude sends the candy to U.S. Military deployed in harm's way
To find a dental practice in your area, use the zip code "look-up" feature to see if there is a dental office participating close by.
SUGGESTION: Call the practice to confirm participation before driving over with your Halloween candy.
