Candy for the Troops - Money for You!

Pediatric Dental Care and Happy Valley Orthodontics are putting their money where their mouth is. Why? Because we know the damaging e ffects of too much candy on children’s teeth. The doctors see first-hand the ravages of cavities leading to toothaches and expense, so this Halloween they hope kids in the State College and surrounding areas will pick out their favorite treats and turn the rest of the candy in for a nice cash prize. In addition, the children will receive a new toothbrush, a goody bag (limit one per child) and be entered to win a $75 or $50 Movie Theater Gift Card. All of the candy collected will be shipped to our troops overseas through Operation Gratitude.  We also encourage children to make thank you cards for our men and women in uniform, that we'll send along with the candy.  Tell your friends - you do not have to be a patient of PDC or HVO to participate. 

How to Participate:
