ST. PAUL AND MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA – The practice of West St. Paul Invisalign provider Dr. Jennifer Eisenhuth is ringing a sweet time of year with its fifth annual candy buyback program.
Eisenhuth hosts this program during the Halloween season each year to donate candy to U.S. soldiers stationed in Iraq and to help her young patients remove the temptation to eat candies they receive that may harm their braces.
Candy such as taffy, caramel and other chewy sweets can cause a lot of harm to orthodontic appliances, said Eisenhuth, who also is a West St. orthodontist.
To make it fun for her staff, Eisenhuth is hosting an in-office contest for them to guess how much candy will be collected. Last year’s contest resulted in 823 pounds of candy being collected and donated to the troops.
“What was interesting is that we had children donating candy that was OK for them to eat,” West St. Paul braces expert Eisenhuth said.“Once many of our patients learned where the candy was going, they got even more generous with their donations.”
Patients who donate candy have their good deeds rewarded through the buy-back program. For every pound of candy a patient donates, he/she gets tokens that can be traded in for items including toys and gift cards.
Patients who wish to participate in this year’s program can donate their candy at Eisenhuth’s Eagan office location on Nov. 2, between 9:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. Then it will be shipped- along with toothbrushes- to soldiers in Iraq.
“We can’t give them candy and not take the opportunity to promote good oral health,” Eisenhuth said. “It’s perfectly fine to enjoy some candy once in a while, but it’s important to brush your teeth after eating sugary sweets, especially if they are chewy, because those tend to stick to your teeth longer.”
If you would like to donate Halloween candy or you want more information, please call: (651) 406-8100 or visit Dr. Eisenhuth’s Web site: http://doctorjennifer.com/. Her office is located at 3340 Sherman Ct. in Eagan.
