Dr. Craig Callen said kids can bring their candy to his Mansfield office and receive $1 per pound, with a 5-pound limit, and free toothbrushes in exchange for their trick-or-treating loot, the Mansfield News Journal reported Monday.
Callen said he will distribute as much as $1,000 and children who return candy will be entered in a drawing for two bikes.
"Visiting your dentist twice a year and brushing your teeth are great preventive measures, but doing away with excess sweets would really give your teeth a healthy boost," Callen said. "Kids can have the fun of trick-or-treating, and now their piggy banks will benefit as well."
"Plus they get a nice new toothbrush and a goody bag of gifts (limit one per child while supply lasts)," he said.
