Total Confidence Dentistry is redefining the phrase "put your money where your mouth is." This Halloween, trick-or-treaters can bring their candy to Total Confidence Dentistry in West Chester and receive $1 per pound (up to 5 pounds) and receive cash for their candy along with a goody bag filled with coupons from local merchants.
Parents who bring their children also can sign up for a raffle to win gift cards, restaurant coupons and other items donated by local merchants. Visit the website to see supporting sponsors: www.TotalConfidenceDentistry.com.
"We know kids love candy, but all those sweets are a real hazard to their teeth," says Dr. Briglia. "We are offering kids a chance to ditch their excess candy. They can still have all the fun of trick-or-treating, and now their piggy banks will benefit as well."
Total Confidence Dentistry will send collected candy to Stockings for Soldiers (www.stockingsforsoldiers.org) and Operation Gratitude (www.operationgratitude.com), organizations that ship care packages to our U.S. Troops overseas to make their holidays a bit brighter.
According to a recent Ad Council Report, "dental decay is the most common chronic childhood disease with more than 16 million kids suffering from untreated tooth decay in the U.S. The mouth is the gateway to a person's overall health and an unhealthy mouth can be associated with obesity, diabetes and even heart disease. In the U.S., oral disease causes kids to miss 51 million school hours and their parents to lose 25 million work hours annually.”
"Visiting your dentist twice a year and brushing daily are great preventative measures, but doing away with excess sweets altogether would really give your teeth a healthy boost," says Dr. Briglia.
Candy will be collected at Total Confidence Dentistry, the office of Dr. Ron Briglia, in the Chester County Medical Bldg, 600 East Marshall Street, Suite 201, West Chester, Pa. on Thursday, Nov. 1 and Friday, Nov. 2 from 2:00 pm-7:00 pm. The candy must be unopened. Please no bites. It will then be shipped to our troops overseas. Also donations by WaWa stores, stop in at nearby WaWa stores for details.
Dr. Briglia and Total Confidence Dentistry thank families for their support. For more information, please contact Total Confidence Dentistry at 610-692-4440 or visit their website at TotalConfidenceDentistry.com.
