/EINPresswire.com/As Halloween and the Holidays approach, one Sherman Oak dentist is helping children fight off tooth decay by buying back Halloween candy and offering free initial consultations for kids. The efforts are designed to promote awareness and importance of preventive dental care.
Sherman Oaks dentist Green Dental and orthodontics is facing tooth decay head on – by offering free initial consultations for children and buying Halloween candy. It’s all part of an end of the year special in recognition of National Dental Hygiene Month, which falls in October, the same month as Halloween. While Green Dental in no way wants to take the fun away from Halloween in LA, it does raise a concern about the amount of candy the average child in Los Angeles consumes on the holiday and afterwards, and the effects it can have on their dental health.
To celebrate National Dental Hygiene Month, Green Dental, Sherman Oaks dentist, will be holding a Halloween Candy Buyback late October and early November. Families will be able to visit the office and return their portions of uneaten candy, bought back at $1 per pound. While patients cash in on Green Dental generosity, the candy is then donated to worthy causes, such as charities for children, needy families, and even troops overseas. In addition, Green Dental will be offering free initial consultations for children as a way of welcoming families to their practice.
“At a time when children are most at risk for cavities and dental decay, it only makes sense to provide both specials at the same time,” says Dr. Joseph. “Parents can find a dental home for their children in Green Dental in addition to getting their children started on the way to healthier dental habits. One way to start this is to limit the amount of sweets they eat every day. Hence the Halloween Candy Buyback.”
Green Dental’s goal is to educate parents and children alike on the dangers of tooth decay, its effects on children, and what can be done to prevent decay and preserve the teeth of children. Green Dental expects many households will have excess candy they won’t mind donating to a worthy cause, while at the same time get their children examined at no cost.
