Dr. Susan Cocquyt, Dr. Bonni Boone and Dr. Lori Risser are putting their money where their mouth is. Why? Because they know the damaging effect of too much candy on children’s teeth.
The doctors see first hand the ravages of cavities leading to toothaches & expense. So this Halloween we hope local kids in the area will pick out their favorite candy & turn the rest of the candy in for a nice cash prize. In addition the children will receive a new toothbrush. All of the candy collected will be shipped to our troops overseas through Operation Gratitude.
