Halloween is every dentist’s worst nightmare. The sheer volume of sticky, chewy, sweet treats consumed is a recipe for tooth decay and cavities. We’re not saying you shouldn’t have ANY candy, but you should know when enough is enough.
If you have any extra or leftover Halloween candy, you can bring it in to our office at Wagner Dental for our Candy Buy Back on November 1st and we’ll give you a dollar for every pound donated. And most importantly, you can feel good about bringing joy to someone who deserves it. All candy collected will be donated to Operation Gratitude, and sent to our honorable service men and women overseas.
Every year, Operation Gratitude sends 250,000+ care packages filled with snacks, entertainment, hygiene products, handmade items, and personal letters of appreciation to New Recruits, Veterans, First Responders, U.S. Service Members overseas, and Wounded Heroes and their caregivers.
“Our mission is to lift the spirits and meet the evolving needs of our First Responder, Active Duty, and Veteran communities. We also seek to provide volunteer opportunities for all Americans to express their appreciation of these heroes.”

However—depending on how extensive your dental work is—you will need to be cautious of what you consume in the days following major dental work. And milkshakes will only get you so far in recovery, anyway. Read more ›
