POOLER, GA (PRWEB) October 18, 2012
What’s a ghost’s favorite candy? BOO-ble gum!
One area dentist is redefining the phrase “put your money where your mouth is.” This Halloween, trick-or-treaters can bring their excess candy to Godley Station Dental in Pooler, GA and receive $1 per pound. Dr. Matthew Allen and Dr. Tait Carpenter are leading this anti- decay movement by giving away dollars for cavity-provoking candy.
“Ditch the candy, that’s what we’re saying. Visiting your dentist twice a year and brushing daily are great preventative measures, but doing away with excess sweets altogether would really give your teeth a healthy boost,” says Dr. Matthew Allen from Godley Station Dental. “Kids can still have all of the fun of trick-or-treating, and now their piggy banks will benefit as well.”
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 kids 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.
Candy will be collected at Godley Station Dental the day after Halloween, Nov. 1st, only from 8:00 to 4:00 p.m. The candy must be unopened. Please no bites. It will then be shipped to troops overseas.
Dr. Matthew Allen is the owner and one of two dentists at Godley Station Dental in Pooler, which emphasizes general, cosmetic, and restorative dentistry. Rachael DeRing is available to provide more information at 912-748-8585.
