candyHa! This might be the only way to get your kids to agree to give up all that candy that you know you don’t want them to eat! Tell them they can get paid not to eat. Great motivation to keep them on track, give you peace of mind and protest their precious teeth!

MEDICAL CITY DALLAS HOSPITAL OFFERS CASH FOR HALLOWEEN CANDY IN RECOGNITION OF NATIONAL ORTHODONTIC HEALTH MONTH

Orthodontist to buyback candy from children and give away oral care goody bags; all candy collected will be sent to the troops overseas

Tooth decay is the single most common chronic childhood disease.  More than 50 percent of five- to nine-year-old children have at least one cavity or filling, and that proportion increases to 78 percent among 17-year-olds.  Prevention is key, as tooth decay is 99 percent preventable with good oral care if started at an early age.

WHAT:  In honor of National Orthodontic Health Month, Deji V. Fashemo, DDS, MPH and medical director of Craniofacial Orthodontics at Medical City, along with the Fourth Dimension Orthodontics & Craniofacial Orthopedics staff are sweetening the pot for trick-or-treaters around the Dallas area this Halloween by giving children $1 for each pound of candy surrendered along with oral care goody bags.  All the candy collected will be sent to U.S. troops in Iraq and Afganistan through the Operation Gratitude Program.

WHEN:  Monday, November 1, 2010  2 – 5 p.m.

WHERE:  Medical City Dallas Hospital
7777 Forest Lane
Fourth Dimension Orthodontics & Craniofacial Orthopedics office
Building C, Suite 770
Dallas, TX 75230
