Cash For Your Candy and Treats For Our Troops
Fort Lauderdale Dentist Takes a Stand Against Sweets this Halloween
Dr. J. Heider usually asks you to open your mouth for a dental exam, but THIS Halloween season he’s telling patients, friends, family and the general public to put their money where their mouths are! During Heider’s 2nd Annual “Great Halloween Candy Buy-Back”, anyone can bring their excess candy to his office, and receive $1.00 per pound. By leading this “antidecay” movement, he is giving away dollars and glowing electric toothbrushes in exchange for cavity-inducing candy – all to benefit our troops! Candy will be collected at Ultimate Smile on Tuesday, November 2nd from 3:00 p.m. until 5:00 p.m. The candy must be unopened. It will then be shipped overseas. The event is being sponsored by local ad agency, Concept International Design and The UPS Store Downtown Fort Lauderdale.
Visiting your dentist twice a year and brushing/flossing daily are great preventative measures, but doing away with excess sweets altogether would really give your teeth a healthy boost,” says Dr. Heider. “Kids can still have all of the fun of trick-or-treating, and now their piggy banks will benefit as well. Plus, these glowing brushes we’re giving out are really cool — they’re like light sabers for your mouth!”
Global sugar consumption for kids increases by about 2% annually and currently sits at 50 million tons per year, which means parents need to be sure their children’s teeth are being cared for more than ever. Candy, as well as hurting children’s teeth, can lead to hyperactivity and weight gain. In some cases, the wrong types of candy can also lead to broken teeth and damaged braces.
Dr. J. Heider emphasizes general family dental care as well as cosmetic procedures. He has earned a distinctive reputation for his dedication and commitment to transforming smiles and influencing others by using advanced cosmetic dentistry techniques and technology. His reputation is further heightened by his volunteer work with the Red Cross Disaster Services, the American Cancer Society, the Medical Reserve Corps, many local community groups, and teaching and serving as a role model for student dentists at Nova Southeastern’s college of Dental Medicine.
