We are redefining the phrase “put your money where your mouth is.” This Halloween, trick-or-treaters can bring their excess candy to our office in Modesto and receive $1 per pound of candy given to cause. Dr. Philip Openshaw is leading this anti-decay movement by giving away dollars and raffle tickets in exchange for cavity-provoking candy. “Ditch the candy, that’s what we’re saying. Visiting your dentist twice a year and brushing daily are great preventative measures, but doing away with excess sweets altogether would really give your teeth a healthy boost,” says Dr. Philip Openshaw. “Kids can still have all of the fun of trick-or-treating, and now their piggy banks will benefit as well.”
Global sugar consumption for children increases by about 2% annually and currently sits at 50 million tons per year, which means parents need to be sure their kids teeth are being cared for more than ever. Candy, as well as hurting children’s teeth, can lead to hyperactivity and weight gain. In some cases, the wrong types of candy can also lead to broken teeth and damaged braces. Candy will be collected at the office of Philip Openshaw D.S.S on November 1st 2012, the day after Halloween only, from 2:00 pm to 5:00 p.m.
The candy must be unopened. Please no bites. It will then be shipped to troops overseas as part of Operation Gratitude. Dr. Philip Openshaw specializes in general family dental care as well as cosmetic procedures.
