Dentists buy back Halloween candy

Hundreds of dentists around the country are buying back excess Halloween candy for $1 a pound ... perhaps the best idea of all for any "not my favorite" Halloween candy your kids may collect. Kids get the moolah (plus a goody bag with a toothbrush), and the dentists send the stuff to U.S. troops overseas (some dentists partner with Operation Gratitude), along with cards and letters written by the children. Win-win! Dentists, check out Dental Pro Shop for how to get involved; parents, tell your dentist about the program and urge them to participate.
