Meyer Dental Group will be working with Packages4Patriots once again to collect uneaten, unopened Halloween candy for our US troops!

Did you know that global sugar consumption for kids increases by about 2% annually and currently sits at 50 million tons per year? This means parents need to be sure their kids 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 teeth and damaged braces.

We will be collecting candy the week of Halloween during regular business hours.  Children are welcome to come by any time to drop off candy in exchange for $1 per pound and a goody bag including a toothbrush and toothpaste! Any candy donations from adults who would like to find a good home for their unused candy this Halloween will gratefully be accepted as well.

All collected candy will be given to Packages4Patriots who puts together care packages around the holidays and throughout the year to send to the men and woman overseas bringing smiles to those who have set out to protect our country!

This program has been very successful in the past year and we hope that 2016 is the best yet!

We hope you can participate in this year’s Meyer Dental Group Halloween Candy Buy Back!
