GRAND FAMILY DENTISTRY OFFERS CASH FOR CANDY
Earn cash for your candy and support our soldiers.
This Halloween, trick-or-treaters can trade their excess candy with Grand Family Dentistry, in Mandeville or Baton Rouge, on Nov. 2, 3 and 4, and receive $1 per pound.
Grand Family Dentistry is redefining the phrase “put your money where your mouth is.” Our doctors have joined the movement to reduce gingivitis and tooth decay by giving away dollars and oral health kits in exchange for cavity-provoking candy.
“Ditch the candy is what they’re saying,” says Dr. Hepburn from Grand Family Dentistry in
Baton Rouge. “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.”
Global sugar consumption for children increases by about 2 percent annually and currently sits at 50 million tons per year, which means parents need to be sure their children’s teeth are being cared for more than ever. Candy, as well as hurting children’s teeth, can lead to hyperactivity and weight gain. In some cases, the wrong types of candy can also lead to broken and damaged braces.
“Children can still have all of the fun of trick-or-treating, and now their piggy banks will benefit as well,” says Dr. Causin from Grand Family Dentistry in Mandeville. “The practice chose to participate in the Halloween Candy Buyback to help parents who want to limit the amount of damage that can be done to their children’s teeth. We want to encourage and teach preventative care not last options to save your smile.”
Candy will be collected Nov. 2 from 4:30 p.m.-6:30 p.m. and Nov. 3-4 from 3:30 p.m.- 5:30 p.m. at our Mandeville location off 3rd Street and our Baton Rouge location on Coursey Boulevard. We will then ship the candy to troops overseas. Each child is eligible to receive $1 per pound up to five (5) pounds for all unopened, uneaten candy. In addition, we will provide pen and paper for anyone who would like to write a letter to our service members.
Dr. Grand works hard to raise public awareness of the benefits of healthy eating and great dental hygiene. Grand Family Dentistry offers affordable and convenient dental care.
