GILFORD — One area dental practice is redefining the phrase "put your money where your mouth is." This Halloween, trick-or-treaters can bring their excess candy to Children's Dentistry of the Lakes Region and receive $1 per pound. Dr. Melissa Kennell and Dr. Matthew Smith are leading this anti-decay movement 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 Dr. Kennell from Children's Dentistry of the Lakes Region. "Kids can still have all of the fun of trick-or-treating, and now their piggy banks will benefit as well."
Candy will be collected at Children's Dentistry of the Lakes Region on Tuesday November 5 only from 8:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m. The candy must be unopened. Please no bites. It will then be shipped to troops overseas.
The staff at Children's Dentistry of the Lakes Region are available to provide more information at 603-527-2500, or visit Children's Dentistry of the Lakes Region on Facebook for details.
