Dentists’ candy buyback nets over 400 pounds of sweets

Pediatric Dentistry of Ft. Myers, Dr. Tim Verwest, DMD collected over 400 pounds of candy during their Halloween cash for my candy buyback program. The candy collected will be donated to the U.S. troops, veterans, new recruits, and Wounded Warriors as part of operation gratitude care packages.

“More than 100 kids become true cavity busters by turning in all their candy for cash and a good cause,” said Dr. Verwest. “Seeing the smiling faces walk out of the office without their candy and a few bucks in their pockets is like music to my ears”.
