Dr. Cohen is leading this anti-decay movement by giving away dollars in exchange for cavity-provoking candy.
“Kids can still have all of the fun of trick or-treating, and now their piggy banks will benefit as well,” says Dr. Cohen.
We all know that children love candy, but eating candy is hurting children’s teeth and may lead to hyperactivity and weight gain. In some cases, the wrong types of candy can also lead to broken teeth and damaged braces.
Global sugar consumption for kids increase by about two percent 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.
Dr. Cohen is sponsoring the Halloween Candy Buy Back from November 1-3 and children can drop off their candy at his office, Cohen Orthodontics, 10211 Dupont Circle Drive, Ste A, Fort Wayne, IN 46825. Call for drop-off time.
Dr. Cohen adds, “We will be conducting similar events in Fort Wayne and surrounding areas periodically throughout the year to help the less fortunate in our community.”
“People helping people have been one of the prominent strengths of our country. Now during these hard economic times, the spirit of giving and helping is needed more than ever,” Dr. Cohen concludes.
