Posted by Trina Edwards - email

CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) - Several area dentists are offering a candy buy back to Trick-or-Treaters.

Children can donate their unwanted Halloween candy to participating dentist offices and receive $1 per pound of candy they donate. The donated candy will then be shipped overseas to U.S. servicemen and women.

The candy can be taken on Monday, Nov. 2 from 3 to 7 p.m. to:

  • Dr. Eric Henize, 4723 Cornell Road, Blue Ash
  • Dr. Fred Hill, 800 Compton Road, Unit 9, Finneytown
  • Hagen Dental Practice, 4998 Glenway Ave., Western Hills
  • Anderson, Smith and Elliott Dental Associates, 265 Main St., Florence

Dr. Larry Hagen and Dr. Fred Hill began the candy buy back in 2007.

In addition, the offices will accept donations of personal dental hygiene items and funding for sending the packages, which cost about $12 to ship.
