Once again this year, Tess Oral Health is proud to sponsor the Halloween Candy Buy-Back program in which thousands of dentists across the nation buy back excess Halloween candy post trick-or-treating, then donate the candy to U.S. troops via Operation Gratitude.
The Halloween Candy Buy-Back program enables children to have the fun of trick-or-treating and the ability to earn rewards for their candy all while saving their teeth from excessive sweets. Thousands of dentists have joined the movement to reduce gingivitis and decay by giving away dollars, toothbrushes, and other favors in exchange for cavity-provoking candy. And, in the end, our children’s teeth and our U.S. service members benefit.
Tess Oral Health is supporting the program by not only making a monetary donation, but also by sending one toothbrush to U.S. troops for every box of toothbrushes sold. Rob Conner, the president of Tess Oral Health stated “We are happy to support the Candy Buy Back program again this year. We hope that by promoting our involvement, others will also get involved with this great organization.” “Happy Halloween” toothbrushes are great giveaways in dental offices through the month of October and at Candy Buy-Back Events.
