Dr. Kim and Dr. Desai are Buying Back Halloween Candy to Benefit Teeth and Braces!!!
Halloween candy can contribute to tooth decay and even damage orthodontic braces and appliances. Dr. Kim and Dr. Desai will help their patients avoid injury to their braces and teeth by buying back Halloween candy.
Dr. Kim and Dr. Desai will pay their patients $3 for each pound of Halloween treats surrendered in the office. They will also match that amount and donate it to For Our Children’s Unlimited Success, Inc. Donations to FOCUS directly benefit many children’s programs throughout the state.
Our doctors note that the days immediately following Halloween are usually an orthodontist’s busiest time of year for emergency calls. They are hopeful that the candy buy-back program will cut down on orthodontic emergencies, yet help patients enjoy the holiday. The office will accept Halloween candy from their patients for weigh-in until the day before Thanksgiving.
**Please note that only candy collected during Trick or Treating will be accepted.
