Last year, we were able to kick off our first Candy Buy-Back event. We invited our patients and the local community to donate extra candy in return for cash. The goal was to reduce the amount of candy consumed per child, thereby helping to promote cavity prevention. Additionally, we were able to donate the extra candy to Operation Christmas Child. The candy is distributed in moderate amounts to children overseas, who rarely get to enjoy these sweet treats. In this way, we feel like we are helping to decrease the number of cavities in our local community while also sharing smiles abroad.
With your help, we hope to do it again this year.
