Thanks to all the kids and parents who came by Omaha Emergency Dental on Monday, Nov. 1 for the Halloween Candy buy back, sponsored by Michael Obeng, DDS. We paid out $95 and gave toothbrushes to kids who brought in their treats and sold them for $1 a pound.
But the fun wasn’t limited to the kids. Throughout the day, adults stopped by the office at 84th and Center streets to drop off their candy just so the troops could have more treats. That added another 36 pounds of candy, bringing the total to about 131 pounds.
If you and your kids get overwhelmed with candy on Halloween, here’s a great trick: take your treats to Omaha Emergency Dental the day after Halloween.
Michael Obeng, DDS, is buying back prepackaged, unopened candy for $1 per pound, up to 5 pounds per person. Kids will also receive a toothbrush in exchange for their candy.
