Cash for Candy, Local Dentist Takes a Stand Against Halloween Sweets

Trick-or treaters can bring their Halloween candy to Cypress Point Family Dentistry at 8130 Baymeadows Circle West, Suite 103 in Jacksonville Wednesday, November 2nd from 4-6:30 PM and receive $1 per pound of candy! Dr. Franklin Rios is putting his money where his mouth is by buying cavity-provoking candy back from kids. The treats will be shipped to our troops overseas so they can enjoy Halloween away from home. 

“Kids can have all the fun of trick-or-treating, plus a piggy bank bonus,” says Dr. Rios. Candy will be collected at Cypress Point Family Dentistry Wednesday, November 2nd from 4-6:30. The candy must be unopened, and will then be shipped to our troops stationed overseas. Global sugar consumption for children rises about 2% annually and currently sits at 50 million tons per year!


Parents need to be vigilant about caring for their kids’ teeth in our sugar-saturated world. Candy can lead to hyperactivity, weight gain, and can cause damage to teeth and braces. “We think kids should ditch the candy. Visiting your dentist twice a year and brushing daily is critical. But doing away with excess sweets altogether, that would really give your teeth a healthy boost,” says Dr. Rios.
