In an effort to help your chilren avoid cavities from all that sugar, Wausau dentists are offering kids a sweet deal with their annual candy buyback programs.
According to the CDC, half of kids aged 12-15 and one fourth of kids 2-5, will develop a cavity.
That's why First Impressions has set up a program called Cash for Candy to encourage trick-or-treaters to cut back on their sweets.
"Children can bring in their Halloween through Nov. 9 to any of our locations," pediatric dentist Julia Stieber said. "And we'll be weighing the candy and giving them cash for each pound they bring in."
The collected candy will be donated to the troops and local organizations like assisted living homes.
