Queen Anne Dentists’ Candy Buyback a Success – Kids Get Cash, Troops Get Care Packages

November 5th, 2012 by Laura

As reported last week, local Queen Anne dentist practices participated in the Halloween Candy Buyback program, offering cash for candy that goes into care packages for troops via Operation Gratitude. Little Pearls Kids Dentistry, Smiles by Smita Orthodontics, and Seattle Kids Dentistry participated and collected a grand total of nearly 250 pounds of candy.

The combined practice of Little Pearls and Smiles by Smita collected 140 pounds of candy to send to troops, and they’ll also be donating matched funds to Northwest Harvest:

Seattle Kids Dentistry collected 100 pounds of candy and took the opportunity to educate kids on good dental health and enjoying sweets in moderation. Kids left with not only cash, but also toothbrushes and prizes in exchange for their donations.
