The dental practices of SALT love Halloween! While - as dentists - we fear this candy-loaded holiday because of the potential for cavities and tooth decay, our offices in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho celebrate by making it a fun competition.
During Halloween, several practices put on a 'Candy Buy-Back' event. They ask people to trade in their candy after trick or treating for cold, hard cash. Okay - really it is just for $1 for every pound of candy - but some offices get more than expected! The big winners can take home gift baskets, gift cards, and more. Check out what our dental partners are doing for the 2023 Buy-Back event!
Cascadia Kids Dentistry - with offices in Issaquah, Kent, and Maple Valley, Washington. Maple Valley will be the ONLY location accepting Candy Buy-Back trade-ins.
It will pay out $1 (cash) per pound of candy. We will be donating the candy to a local assisted living facility.
Kids Dental Specialists are joining in on the Buy-Back fun!
It will pay out $1 (cash) per pound of candy. We will be donating the candy to a local shelter, Chino Neighborhood House.
Candy Buy-Back event with the orthodontists at DaBell & Paventy - with 6 locations across the greater Spokane area!
Located at 720 Evergreen Rd. in Spokane Valley. Kids will receive $1 per lb., all candy will be donated.
Our partners in Seattle at Seattle Kids Dentistry are promoting Candy Buy-Back! Here are the Buy-Back dates:
Kids can earn $1 per pound up to $10 pounds. Prize basket for whomever brings the most candy! We will be donating the candy to the YMCA Youth Shelter.
Candy Buy-Back at KidSmile Dental - located in Spokane.
Kids will earn $1 per 1 lb. of candy. We split the total and donate half to our overseas troops and the others go to The Children's Cancer Camp (Camp Journey).
No, these dentists don't keep all this candy to themselves! There are many organizations out there that will take candy off your hands and send them to troops overseas or donate them to hospitals or charities. For the SALT practices, the candy will be sent to several amazing local charities, such as Treats for Troops.
There is a lot of fun to be had at the dental offices of SALT. Read along with our blog or follow us on social to stay up-to-date!
