Emerson, NJ (PRWEB) October 07, 2014
Archer Katz, DDS is supporting the troops and the health of his youngest patients this year by holding a Halloween Candy Buy Back, which allows children to trade in their Halloween treats for gift cards. All donated candy must be dropped off to Dr. Katz’s office by Saturday, November 8, 2014, which will then be shipped to U.S. troops abroad. Donations to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital will also be made.
Archer Katz, DDS and his office have been hosting the Halloween Candy Buy Back program for the last 6 years, and are pleased to continue the effort. This year, children participating in the program will receive a $10 gift card. In addition, Dr. Katz’s office will make a $10 donation in that child’s name to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
In addition to giving children a chance to help others, the Halloween Candy Buy Back may reduce the risk that children will need to visit an Emerson, NJ dentist for oral health problems associated with a diet high in sugar. Foods and drinks that are high in sugar can contribute to tooth decay, or cavities. Untreated cavities are a fairly common problem among children, affecting almost one-fifth of children between the ages of 2 and 19, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. These oral health problems can lead to infections and other complications. Although good oral hygiene is important year round, Dr. Katz reminds his patients that it is especially of concern around holidays such as Halloween. He recommends that parents and children avoid sour candies, which can be too acidic, and sticky treats, which are in contact with the teeth for longer periods of time.
Archer Katz, DDS encourages everyone to take part in this years’ Halloween Candy Buy Back Program, and to take preventative measures to help maintain good oral health.
