THE WOODLANDS, TX - The childhood thrill of collecting pounds of Halloween candy is often followed by the November 1st panic of parents wondering what to do with all the sugary sweets their kids gathered. Luckily, there is a new program to solve this problem.

Local dentists are hoping to prevent cavities, while at the same time supporting our troops, through a program called Halloween Candy Buyback. This program, also locally referred to as Treats for the Troops, will be held at the offices of Judith A. Ragsdale, D.D.S., M.S.D., Dr. Erica K. Baker, D.D.S. and Dr. Jennine K. Huet, D.D.S., P.A. in The Woodlands.

The Halloween Candy Buyback is a national program that collected and shipped 125 tons of candy for the troops last year. This year, the program will be sending off 60,000 care packages with the donations collected from children all across America.

Children will receive one dollar in return per pound of candy they bring in. ""[The Halloween Candy Buyback is an opportunity to> reduce tooth decay, promote oral health and to show appreciation and support to our troops,"" Dr. Baker said.

Dentists often see an increase in dental issues after Halloween due to the increase in candy consumption. Therefore, participants in the Halloween Candy Buyback program from The Woodlands will not only be doing good for the troops but also for their own dental health.

In addition to troops overseas receiving candy, troops often pass out some of the candy they receive to the children in the area where they are stationed.
