This will mark the 11th year that Dental Associates of Connecticut will have a Halloween candy buy-back program.

The Dental Associates Shelton office at 680 Bridgeport Ave. will purchase candy collected on Halloween, at $2 per pound, from little trick-or-treaters.

The candy can be brought to the office on Tuesday, Nov. 5 from noon–2 p.m. Call 203-380-0660 with any questions.

The goal is to emphasize the importance of good food choices and their impact on dental health.

In a typical Halloween season, Dental Associates of Connecticut offices can collect more than a ton of candy. There also are offices in Danbury, New Milford and Newtown.
