October 13, 2017 – Cedar Park, TX – Earn cash for your candy and support a soldier
Cedar Park dentist Dr. Alkesh Sura at Reveal Dental is redefining the phrase “put your money where your mouth is.” This Halloween, trick-or-treaters can bring their excess candy to Reveal Dental and receive $1 per pound. Dr. Sura has joined the movement to reduce gingivitis and decay by giving away dollars in exchange for cavity-provoking candy.
“Ditch the candy, that’s what we’re saying. 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 Founder, Dr. Chris Kammer from Lifetime Family Dentistry of Middleton, WI. “Kids can still have all of the fun of trick-or-treating, and now their piggy banks will benefit as well. The practice chose to participate in the Halloween Candy Buy Back to help parents that want to limit the amount of damage that can be done to their children’s teeth. We want to encourage and teach preventative care,” says Dr. Alkesh Sura.
Global sugar consumption for kids increases by about 2% annually and currently sits at 50 million tons per year, which means parents need to be sure their kids’ teeth are being cared for more than ever. Candy, in addition to hurting children’s teeth, can lead to hyperactivity and weight gain.
Candy will be collected at Reveal Dental from November 1-7. The candy will then be shipped to troops overseas as part of care packages. 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 tools for anyone that would like to create a letter for our service members.
