Butte Family Dental Office to Host Halloween Candy Buy-Back Event

BUTTE, MT--(Marketwired - October 31, 2015) - A Butte dental office that offers services for patients of all ages will hold a special Halloween candy buy-back event at the beginning of November.

Butte Family Dental will host the event Nov. 2 from noon to 5 p.m. for children who are willing to part with their hard-earned Halloween candy in exchange for cash. Children who drop off candy will receive $1 for every pound of candy. The office will accept up to five pounds of candy from every participant.

"It's tough for children to give away their candy, but we see this as a fun event that spreads awareness about the dangerous effects sugary treats have on kids' dental health," said Dr. Bill Brennick of Butte Family Dental.

In addition to the in-office event, the dental practice is working with the Key's Club from Butte High School and Butte Central Catholic High School to put candy drop-off boxes in the local elementary schools and throughout the city. All candy will be sent to Operation Gratitude, a program that sends the collected goods to deployed troops.

Butte Family Dental is known for its annual Halloween candy buy-back event. Over the years, the dental office has collected and sent hundreds of pounds of candy and other goods to Operation Gratitude. Many of the practice's young patients are ecstatic to put money in their pockets, too.

"This opportunity gives our practice and all our patients a chance to support our military personnel in a unique way," Dr. Brennick said. "It also gives our young patients an opportunity to put a little cash in their pocket."

Butte Family Dental, 820 Sampson St., has three dentists, two full-time dental hygienists, four dental assistants and three front office staff.
