Area Dental Practice Hosts Halloween Candy Trade-In November 3-4

Purging your home of extra Halloween candy has just become a lot easier thanks to Smiles By Holsinger & Higgins, 10646 River Road, Denton. The adult general and cosmetic practice is hosting a Halloween candy “trade-in,” an innovative way for kids to earn extra money and a convenient way for parents to curb the temptation of eating leftover candy. The trade-in will be held on Monday, November 3, and Election Day -Tuesday, November 4 from 1 to 6 p.m. at the dental practice. Candy collected through this special event will be shipped overseas to U.S. Troops along with toothbrushes and toothpaste.

During the trade-in kids, accompanied by an adult, bring in their candy and will be paid $1.00 per pound. The practice will pay out a total of $500.00. In addition, the practice will match their contribution to the kids dollar for dollar (up to $500.00) with a donation to the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Maryland Chapter. Kids will also receive toothbrushes and toothpaste. Adults accompanying the children will receive a special “treat” as they can enter into a free raffle for ZOOM! 2™ tooth whitening valued at $680.00.
“We learned about candy trade-ins from a colleague and thought it was a great way to connect with the community and say thank you to our military women and men at the same time,” says Patricia E. Higgins, D.D.S. “When we were working through the details we thought it would be great if we could add in a few different components so that our efforts and the efforts of the kids would go even further,” says Rowland S. Holsinger, D.S.S. For more information on the candy trade-in, please call (410) 479-3644 or (800) 617-3644 (Delaware).
