Group Dentistry Now –
National children’s dental provider Kool Smiles collected more than four tons (8,594 pounds) of Halloween candy during its sixth annual Operation Troop Treats, the nation’s largest dentist-sponsored Halloween candy exchange benefiting U.S. service members and their families. Designed to promote good dental health while giving deployed U.S. troops a “sweet” reminder of home during the holiday season, Operation Troop Treats is a partnership between Kool Smiles and Operation Gratitude. More than 450 dentists from 123 Kool Smiles offices in 14 states and the District of Columbia were involved in this year’s effort. In addition to the Halloween candy, Kool Smiles is donating dental kits and the funds to cover the assembly and shipment of 200 care packages.
