It’s that time of year again, when goblins, ghosts, and ghouls take to the streets, toting their buckets and pillowcases door-to-door, filling them with heaps of candy. To carry on the holiday tradition, Molen Orthodontics is hosting its 18th Annual Candy Buyback event to help make this Halloween safe and healthy for children of all ages. Molen Orthodontics is buying back candy from trick-or-treaters. Every year, their team gathers for this wonderful community service event.

On Tuesday, November 1st, between 2:30 PM and 6:30 PM, children can bring their wrapped Halloween candy to any of Molen Orthodontics’ three office locations. In exchange, Molen will pay them $2 per pound for their candy (with a 10 lb maximum). An additional dollar will be paid to the kids who wear their Halloween costumes, and an extra dollar to the kids who bring in 2 or more canned food items. Molen Orthodontics donates all of the candy and canned food items to local charitable organizations, military personnel overseas, local churches, outreach groups, and food banks.

In 2019, Molen Orthodontics collected over 3,250 pounds of Halloween candy, and in 2020, they collected over 5,800 canned food items. They are hoping for even greater success this year.

Please visit any of their three offices:

  • Auburn – 1110 Harvey Road, Auburn, WA 98002
  • Enumclaw – 1771 Farrelly Street, Enumclaw, WA 98022
  • Sumner – 16209 64th Street E (Suite 101), Sumner, WA 98390

“Halloween is a fun holiday for kids of all ages,” said Dr. Rick Molen. “But too much candy can contribute to tooth decay. And for people who wear braces, eating sticky or chewy candy can harm their braces and may lengthen their orthodontic treatment.”

For more information on their Candy Buyback event, please contact Maya Frame at or call them at (253) 939-2552.
