Trick or Treat, then Treat our Troops for our Perring Parkway patients.

Everyone knows it’s normally not a good idea to bring a sack of candy to the dentist, but Main Street Children’s Dentistry and Orthodontics of Perring Parkway is making an exception, and it’s for a great cause. Operation Gratitude is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization that sends care packages to our military men and women serving overseas. And one of their popular annual programs is their Candy Buy Back care package effort.

We are asking our patients to bring in their Halloween candy and we will buy it back from them, and donate it to Operation Gratitude. Patients will get $1 per pound for tasty treats they bring in. Only sealed, new candy will be accepted and some limitations do exist. It’s a great way to share some of that trick or treating fun with our military. And, it probably makes Mom and Dad happy too!

Patients donating candy are asked to send in notes or cards too if they wish. The notes will accompany the sweets, adding a personal touch.

We will be accepting donations Nov. 3-14 from 8:30am-4pm daily.

To learn more about our Candy Buy Back dates and times, call the office for details or visit our website.

What Our Patients Say About Us

“I think this is one of the best Children’s dentistry offices I have been to. The office help is friendly and efficient, The doctors are great with the children. Mine has ADHD and I forgot to have him take his med before the appointment and the doctor just took it in stride and was very patient with him. They take the time to let you know exactly what is going on with your child’s teeth.”
