Children who have gathered a few too many chocolate bars can stop by Aldie Family & Cosmetic Dentistry in order to have their candy “bought back” in exchange for small toys and treats. Participants can stop in during operating hours only. // Aldie Family & Cosmetic Dentistry: 24600 Millstream Drive, Suite 470, Aldie
Buckets and buckets of candy might just be too much for your family. Grab that bucket and bring it over to Annandale Smiles, where kids can trade their candy for small treats, gift cards or cash. // Annandale Smiles: 4322 Ravensworth Road, Annandale
Friendly Smiles Dental Care
Instead of storing away all of that candy for themselves, let your children exchange up to five pounds of candy for a gift card, small treats or up to $5 in cash. All of the candy will be donated to a nonprofit organization, where candy is placed in care packages and sent overseas to soldiers deployed around the world. // Friendly Smiles Dental Care: 9000 Fern Park Drive, Burke
