Remember, after all the Halloween festivities there will be lots of candy floating around your household. Instead of having your children fill their mouths with candy (and cavities), there are a few other options. Look for a dentist in your area that is offering a Candy Buy-Back Program. Basically, they will purchase unopened bags of candy (usually up to a certain pound) and then ship that candy to troops overseas. A great way to brighten the day of our American Heroes! For more information, and to see if there is a dentist in your area that participates, check out the Halloween Candy Buy Back Program website. Your child can help save their teeth, get a few dollars (and maybe a few freebies) and you get the opportunity to do something nice for the people that serve our great country.
Whatever your plans, I hope you all have a Happy and Safe Halloween!
