Trick-or-treaters can bring their excess Halloween candy to Lang Dental Group, 543 Long Pond Road, Rochester, in exchange for $1 per pound through Nov. 3.
Drs. Gary, Greg and Jessica Lang are participating in Operation Candy Buy Back to help parents wanting to limit the amount of damage done to their children’s teeth. The goal is to encourage and teach preventative dental care, as well as show gratitude to the troops.
The collected candy will be delivered to Fort Drum. The office is accepting candy donations from 5 to 7 p.m. through Nov. 2 and 3 to 5 p.m. on Nov. 3.
Each child is eligible to receive $1 per pound, up to 5 pounds, for all unopened, uneated candy. The office will provide paper and writing utensils so that participants can write letters to soldiers.
Lang Dental Group collected and shipped over 250 pounds of candy to Operation Gratitude in 2017.
