Various dentists and orthodontists in South Florida are participating in a nationwide program to buy back Halloween treats from kids.
The program offers kids a reward — sometimes money, toothbrushes or other gifts — for the sugary Halloween haul.
The candy that the dentists gather is forwarded in to U.S. military troops by Operation Gratitude.
Participating dentists establish their own guidelines on when they hold their candy buy-back events and what prizes or incentives offer. It’s a good idea to phone a participating dentist for info.
Participating dentists by zip code are featured on the site for the Halloween Candy Buy Back.
