Just in time for Halloween—a fun holiday that isn't much fun for kids' teeth—Gentle Dentistry in Sparta will hold a “Cash for Candy” program to encourage children to properly care for their teeth and to promote good nutrition.
Dr. Zelia Cannon and Dr. Ewa Zoltek say kids 12 and under (with parents' permission) are invited to drop off their Halloween candy at the dental office. For every pound of candy they leave, they will receive $1 and other treats we assume are not filled with sugar.
Candy will be collected after Halloween, on Monday, Nov. 4 through Thursday, Nov. 7, from 1 to 4 p.m.
Gentle Dentistry is located at 25 Woodport Road in Sparta. For more information, call 973-729-9044.
