Halloween Candy Buy-Back Program: A Collaboration Between Dentists & Communities

Halloween is just around the corner, and, if you’re anything like me, you’re probably not thrilled about the actual “candy” part of the process. I like to take a moderate stance on the subject and let my kids have some candy, but not let them go all out (as I did as a child).

Recently, I was happy to learn of a program that is an inspiring alternative to the standard Halloween candy approach. The Halloween Candy Buy Back Program is a fantastic collaboration between Dentists and communities that you can likely get your kids to happily jump on board with.

Dentists that sign-up for the program “buy” back your candy by the pound in exchange for “cash, coupons, toothbrushes, creative exchanges,” at an event that was created just for this purpose. Not only does it sound like a great idea, it also sounds like an amazing opportunity to get your community together! The candy is then given to a Military support program and enjoyed by U.S Troops that will enjoy them overseas.
