LINCROFT – Newman Springs Dental Care is redefining the phrase “put your money where your mouth is.”
Trick-or-treaters can bring their excess candy to the Lincroft dental office and receive $1 per pound. Drs. Mitchel Friedman and Julia Cintron are leading this anti-decay movement by giving away dollars and glowing timer toothbrushes in exchange for cavity-provoking candy. The family dental practice has sponsored this event since 2009 with Comcast Spotlight.
“On Nov. 4 from 3 to 5 p.m., give up the candy to make a difference; that’s what we’re saying. Visiting your dentist twice a year and brushing daily are great preventative measures, however doing away with excess sweets altogether would really give your teeth a healthy boost,” said Dr. Friedman from Newman Springs Dental Care. “Kids can still have all of the fun of trick-or-treating, and now their piggy banks will benefit as well.”
There will be snacks and the kids are encouraged to dress up for the buy back. As a special bonus, there will be a drawing for several special prizes.
Unopened candy will be collected at 539 Newman Springs Road Lincroft. The treats will then be shipped to our troops overseas thanks to Army Recreational Military Services (ARMS).
