Dentist offers children money and toothbrushes for Halloween sweets

Dentist Craig Callen will offer kids $1 for every pound of candy they bring in.

AN OHIO DENTIST is offering to buy kids’ trick-or-treating booty this Halloween, and he’s even throwing in a toothbrush to sweeten the deal.

The Mansfield News Journal reports that dentist Craig Callen and his associates are offering kids $1 per pound of candy they bring in, with a 5-pound limit per child.

The dentists are also holding a draw for two children’s bikes.

Callen says brushing teeth and visiting a dentist are good preventive measures, but doing away with excess sweets would give teeth a healthy boost.

Callen says candy can lead to hyperactivity and weight gain and can be especially damaging to children’s braces.
