Is your house awash in fattening, teeth-rotting Halloween candy? Now there may be help. A dentist's office near Philadelphia will hold a buy back for Halloween candy.
 
Robert Riesenberger's pediatric dentist's office in Doylestown says it will be on Nov. 9 for children's Halloween candy.

Children can receive $1 for each pound of candy they bring in. The collected candy will be sent to military personnel serving overseas.

Jennifer McClain, a dental assistant at the office, said the buy back has gone on for the past three years and between 300 to 500 pounds of candy has been collected each time.

She said the office partners with the Food4Troops charity, which sends care packages to troops overseas.

Other dentists around the country have held similar candy collection programs. To find a buy back in your area, CLICK HERE.
