West Chester, PA – For the sixth year in a row, Dr. Ron Briglia at Briglia Dental Group will be hosting a Halloween Candy Buyback to provide candy for our troops overseas during the holidays.
Briglia Dental Group is redefining the phrase “put your money where your mouth is.” After Halloween, trick-or-treaters can bring their candy to Briglia Dental Group in West Chester and receive $1 per pound (up to 5 pounds) and receive cash for their candy along with a goody bag filled with coupons from local merchants.
Parents who bring their children also can sign up for a raffle to win gift cards, restaurant coupons and other items donated by local merchants.
“We know kids love candy, but all those sweets are a real hazard to their teeth,” says Dr. Briglia. “We are offering kids a chance to ditch their excess candy. They can still have all the fun of trick-or-treating, and now their piggy banks will benefit as well.”
Briglia Dental Group sends collected candy to Stockings for Soldiers (www.stockingsforsoldiers.org) and Operation Gratitude (www.operationgratitude.com), organizations that ship care packages to our U.S. Troops overseas to make their holidays a bit brighter.
According to a recent Ad Council Report, “dental decay is the most common chronic childhood disease with more than 16 million kids suffering from untreated tooth decay in the U.S. The mouth is the gateway to a person’s overall health and an unhealthy mouth can be associated with obesity, diabetes and even heart disease. In the U.S., oral disease causes kids to miss 51 million school hours and their parents to lose 25 million work hours annually.”
“Visiting your dentist twice a year and brushing daily are great preventative measures, but doing away with excess sweets altogether would really give your teeth a healthy boost,” says Dr. Briglia.
Candy is always collected at Briglia Dental Group (Dr. Ron Briglia), Chester County Medical Bldg., 600 East Marshall Street, Suite 201, West Chester, Pa. The candy must be unopened. Please no bites. It is then be shipped to our troops overseas.
Dr. Briglia and Briglia Dental Group thank families for their support. For more information,
please contact Briglia Dental Group at 610-692-4440
Last year, we collected over 2,500 lbs of donated candy for our troops overseas. Please help us beat that number this year!
