Dr. Eric Beck is leading an anti tooth-decay movement by giving away dollars in exchange for candy. This Halloween, trick-or-treaters can bring their excess candy to Dr. Beck’s office in Huntsville and receive $1.00 per pound.

“Kids can still have all of the fun of trick or-treating, and now their piggy banks will benefit as well,” says Dr. Beck.

We all know that children love candy, but eating candy is hurting children’s teeth and may also lead to hyperactivity and weight gain. In some cases, the wrong types of candy can also lead to broken teeth and damaged braces.

Global sugar consumption for kids increase 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.

Dr. Beck is sponsoring the Halloween Candy Buy Back from November 01, 2011 to November 05, 2011 and children can drop off their candy at his office, Valley Center for Nerve Studies & Rehabilitation, located at 2227 Drake Ave #5, Huntsville, AL 35805.
