Dentist paying for excess candy


TAHLEQUAH — One area dentist is redefining the phrase “put your money where your mouth is.”

This Halloween, trick-or-treaters can bring their excess candy to 206 E Downing St. and receive $1 per pound, up to 5 pounds. Dr. Brant Rouse is leading this anti-decay movement by giving away dollars and toothbrushes in exchange for cavity-provoking candy. The candy will be sent to deployed U.S. military service members as part of the Operation Gratitude.

Candy will be collected at Rouse’s office at 206 E Downing St., Friday, Nov. 1, from 3 to 5:30 p.m. The candy must be unopened. It will then be shipped to troops overseas.

For more information, contact the office at (918) 456-0977, email info@tahlequahsmiles.com, or visit www.tahlequahsmiles.com.
