Kids may be on a sugar high right now, reveling in their bags full of trick-or-treat candy. But for the dental community, the thought of all those sweets affecting young teeth is a nightmare.
Bohl & Race Orthodontics, 12720 W. North Ave., is giving local families the opportunity to exchange the Halloween candy they collected for healthy alternatives and chances to win prizes from 3 to 6 p.m. Thursday.
The orthodontics practice has joined with national charity Smiles Change Lives. Everyone who stops by will receive a healthy treat and goodie bag.
Bohl & Race Orthodontics plans to donate the candy collected to U.S. troops overseas. For every pound raised, a dollar will be donated to Smiles Change Lives. This year, the goal is to collect 500 pounds, which will help provide braces for low-income children in the Milwaukee area.
