Thanks to everyone in the community for participating in our event which allows us to give to those in need.
How does Dollar$ Not Decay Work?
For every pound of Halloween candy that children bring to Timberhill Dental the afternoon following Halloween, they will receive $2.00 per pound (Dr. Black will round up…so 1 ½ lbs. = $4.00) and a free toothbrush.
Dr. Black agrees that Halloween is a fun and exciting holiday for children. In fact, his three younger children are very enthusiastic trick-or- treaters. However, he does worry about the excessive amount of candy that children eat in the weeks following Halloween.
By offering cash for candy, Dr. Black is giving children a healthy alternative to consuming large amounts of candy over a long period of time, the perfect environment for tooth decay and obesity.
Last year, Dr. Black collected 1,068 lbs. of candy and we are all hoping to collect over a 1,000 lbs. again this year! Along with collecting candy, Dr. Black will be giving a matching cash donation based on the amount of candy collected to CARDV.
The free toothbrush he gives each visitor will help all the little Halloween goblins maintain good oral health.
