Halloween Candy Buy-Backs

Americans purchase nearly 600 million pounds of candy every year just for Halloween. Much of that will be devoured immediately, but most will linger around the house to tempt you for days and weeks to come. Why not save your family the extra calories by donating leftover candy? With a little effort, you can provide great gifts to people in need of encouragement! 

The Super Dentists
Bring your Halloween candy to your local Super Dentists from Nov.1-3 and get cash in return.
