Cash For Candy
4th Annual Candy Buy Back to Kick off No Cavity November at Local Dentist
Bradenton, FL (October 18, 2021) Earn cash for your candy and support a soldier! This Halloween, trick-or-treaters can bring their excess candy to Parkwood Dental and receive $1 per pound.
“Tooth decay is one of the most common childhood diseases. One in four children suffers from having at least one cavity before entering kindergarten. Visiting your dentist twice a year and brushing daily are great preventative measures, but doing away with excess sweets altogether would really give your teeth a healthy boost,” says Dr. Hernandez.
Candy, as well as hurting children’s teeth, can lead to hyperactivity and weight gain. In some cases, the wrong types of candy can also lead to broken and damaged braces and teeth.
“Kids can still have all of the fun of trick-or-treating, and now their piggy banks will benefit as well. We chose to continue the Halloween Candy Buy Back to help parents who want to limit the amount of damage that can be done to their children’s teeth,” says Jodie, Practice Administrator.
This 4th annual candy buy back event kicks off ‘No Cavity November’ where dental hygienists from our local offices will demonstrate good brushing and flossing skills while giving out toothbrushes and paste to Manatee County schools as a dental health awareness community outreach effort.
Candy will be collected at Parkwood Dental the day after Halloween from 8 to 5 and throughout that week at both locations. The candy will then be shipped to troops overseas. Each child is eligible to receive $1 per pound up to five (5) pounds for all unopened, uneaten candy. Plus, we will provide paper and writing utensils for anyone that would like to create a letter for those serving our country.
Parkwood Dental specializes in preventive care, dental treatments, cosmetic dentistry and orthodontic services. Our office is led by Dr. Oscar Hernandez, Jr.; a licensed general dentist with over 28 years experience creating healthy smiles for happy patients. Dr. Hernandez works hard to raise public awareness of the benefits of healthy eating and great dental hygiene.
