What’s Sweeter Than Sugar? Cold Hard Cash!
Local Dentist will pay to get excess candy “off the streets” OAK BROOK, IL
One area dentist is redefining the phrase “put your money where your mouth is.” This Halloween, trick-or-treaters can bring their excess candy to Ligocki Dental Group and receive $1 per pound (5 lb. limit) during his Halloween Candy Buy Back. Dr. Mark Ligocki has been leading this anti-decay movement in the western suburbs since 2011 by giving away the dollars and toothbrushes in exchange for the cavity causing candy. Dr. Ligocki then ships the candy to our courageous troops overseas.
Dr Ligocki says, “After Halloween we as parents realistically expect the kids to enjoy some of the candy they collect and then we are here to help them get rid of the excess.” That’s good news for kids, especially when early childhood decay is on the rise and obesity and diabetes rates among the young have skyrocketed. Kids can still have all of the fun of trick-or-treating, and now their piggy banks and their bodies will benefit as well.
Candy will be collected at Ligocki Dental Group in Oakbrook Terrace the Monday after Halloween, November 3 from 5:30-7:30 p.m and at their Wheaton office on Wednesday, November 5th from 5:30-7:30pm. The candy must be unopened. No bites please. To commemorate this year’s Halloween Candy Buy Back, Dr. Ligocki will be collecting letters written by the children to the troops and be raffling off movie tickets in the “Guess how many candy corns there are contest”.
Dr. Mark Ligocki and his team at Ligocki Dental Group in Oak Brook and Wheaton have been serving the western suburbs for over twenty years. The practice emphasizes general family dental care as well as implants, nonsurgical gum treatments, and cosmetic procedures. Dr. Ligocki is available to provide more information at (630) 620-8099 or (630) 665-7400, or visit Ligocki Dental Group on-line at www.LigockiDentalGroup.com. Another local business and one community group have volunteered to help via donations. If your business or organization would like to participate, please contact Ligocki Dental Group in Oak Brook.
