Local Dentist Takes a Stand Against Sweets this Halloween
Winter Springs, FL
One area dentist is redefining the phrase “put your money where your mouth is.” This Halloween, trick-or-treaters can bring their excess candy to Quality Care Dental in Winter Springs and receive $1 per pound, a free toothbrush and other surprises! The candy will be shipped to troops overseas. For every dollar Dr. Nguyen gives for candy, she will donate $1 to Ronald McDonald House Charities. Dr. Mary Nguyen is leading this anti-decay movement by giving away dollars in exchange for cavity-provoking candy.
“Ditch the candy, that’s what we’re saying. Visiting your dentist twice a year and brushing daily are great preventive measures, but doing away with excess sweets altogether would really give your teeth a healthy boost,” says Dr. Nguyen from Quality Care Dental. “Kids can still have all of the fun of trick-or-treating, and now their piggy banks will benefit as well.”
Global sugar consumption for kids increases by about 2% annually and currently sits at 50 million tons per year, which means parents need to be sure their kids teeth are being cared for more than ever. Candy, as well as hurting children’s teeth, can lead to hyperactivity and weight gain. In some cases, the wrong types of candy can also lead to broken teeth and damaged braces.
Candy will be collected at Quality Care Dental the Tuesday after Halloween, November 3rd, from 12:00 to 4:00pm. Our office will buy candy on November 3rd, but we will continue to accept donated candy throughout that week. The candy must be unopened. Please no bites.
Quality Care Dental emphasizes general family dental care as well as cosmetic procedures. Dr. Nguyen is available to provide more information at 407-327-1964, or visit Quality Care Dental online at www.drmarynguyen.com.
