8th Annual Halloween Candy Buy Back Program Targets Cavities And Supports Troops

(Buena Park, CA – September 21, 2011) – Dentists across the country will once again collect excess candy from young patients on November 1st as part of the 8th annual Halloween Candy Buy Back Program.

Through the program, children who bring unopened candy to designated locations the day after Halloween, are rewarded with prizes like the popular light-up FireFly® toothbrush and in some cases $1 cash per pound.  The candy is then sent through Operation Gratitude to troops serving overseas as part of holiday care packages. 

For a limited time only, Dr. Fresh® Inc. is offering colorful FireFly toothbrushes at a special promotional price of $0.75 per unit to participating dentists.  To take advantage of this offer, please call (866) 373-7371or visit www.drfreshdental.com

“Kids can still have all of the fun of trick-or-treating, without overconsumption of sweet treats, says Dr. Chris Kammer, founder of Halloween Candy Buy Back Program and a Wisconsin dentist.  “They love the glowing FireFly toothbrushes they get in return, and they love being part of the effort to send a little piece of home to our soldiers far away.”
