BETTENDORF, IA – This Halloween, Byrum Family Dentistry is offering Quad-Cities families a chance to reward America’s troops for their valor – as they help children to fight tooth decay.
From 3:30 to 5:30 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 1, kids age 12 and under can bring their Halloween candy to Byrum Family Dentistry and they will buy the candy for $1 per pound. The candy collected will be sent to America’s troops serving overseas. Byrum Family Dentistry, the dental practice of Robert L. Byrum, D.D.S., P.C., and Melinda Hochgesang, D.M.D., is located at 3878 Middle Road, Bettendorf, IA.
In addition to the cash reward, every participating child will also get a free toothbrush. Plus, if the child is not already a patient of Byrum Family Dentistry, he or she will receive a coupon for a free exam. This exam will include an initial dental examination, X-rays, and consultation.
“Our Halloween program is a win-win deal for the whole family,” said Dr. Byrum. “Parents will be pleased that their children will be eating less sweets, and the kids will receive a nice reward in exchange for their contribution to America’s troops. Plus, the program will also set many children down the path to improved dental health.”
The professionals at Byrum Family Dentistry believe in giving back to the community and actively promoting dental health. Since 1990, Dr. Byrum has made monthly donations to area charities such as the Make a Wish Foundation and the American Cancer Society. Routinely, toothbrushes, floss, and toothpaste have been donated to area causes, including shelters, schools, and overseas military personnel.
