Maple Shade Annual Halloween Candy Buy Back


Everyone knows it’s normally not a good idea to bring a sack of candy to the dentist, but we are making an exception, and it’s for a great cause.

We are asking our patients to bring in their Halloween candy. We will pay $1 per pound for tasty treats and donate it to Dream Center Peoria, a nonprofit organization that supports the underserved in the Peoria area.  And, it probably makes Mom and Dad happy too!

Only sealed, new candy will be accepted and some limitations do exist.

We will be accepting donations Nov. 3rd from 4pm-6pm only.

To learn more about our Candy Buy Back, call one of our offices or visit our website for details.
