Little Smiles’ 12th Annual Halloween Candy Buyback was a sweet success. A big thank you to all the kids (and grown ups) who brought in over 380 pounds of candy. This year we introduced the program at our new North Muskegon practice and invited the elementary schools in the area to participate in the school competition as well..

The winning school in the Grand Haven/Tri-Cities area was Peach Plains Elementary. The winning school in theGreater North Muskegon area was Central Elementary. Each school will receive an award, a check for $2 per pound of all the candy brought in by their students, and bragging rights for the year.

The candy collected is being donated to our Public Safety Departments along the lakeshore in appreciation for their service.

Why it’s important to see your dentist regularly

By | Featured, Grand Haven Blog Article, Grand Rapids Blog Article, Health & Wellness, North Muskegon Blog Article

“Early diagnosis” and “prevention” have become well-recognized terms in the medical field. No one wants to find out that they’ve been harboring a disease or ailment that will be difficult to treat at an advanced state, or worse, is beyond treatment. Most illnesses become more challenging and expensive to treat the further they progress.

What about your teeth? Doesn’t the same logic apply?

Visiting your dentist every six months not only prevents issues like tooth decay and gum disease, it can help identify and diagnose other health concerns such as oral cancer, diabetes, nutrition deficits and heart disease. Our mouths tell a story about our overall health.

Some patients skip appointments to save money. The flip-side of that decision, however, is that these patients are more likely to develop cavities or other dental issues when they miss appointments, and these dental issues are not only physical painful, they can be painfully expensive as well.

Prevention and regular visits are the best method for keeping dental comfort and cost in line, as well as supporting overall health.

Halloween Candy Buyback 2018!

By | Community Events, For Kids, Fun Stuff, Grand Haven Blog Article

Halloween is almost here! And that means it’s time for Little Smiles Grand Haven’s 11th annual Halloween Candy Buyback.  The purpose of this fun program is to encourage kids to support their local school while making healthy choices.

Be Healthy!

Our message to kids is simple: Too much Halloween candy isn’t good for you or your teeth.  So pick out your favorite candy to enjoy.  Then, bring the extra, unopened candy to Little Smiles Grand Haven and we’ll buy it back from you for $1 per pound.  It’s a win win!  (Children must be 13 years and under.)

Support your School!

Little Smiles’ Halloween Candy Buyback is also good for local schools in the Grand Haven and Spring Lake area.  Every pound of unopened candy that is delivered to Little Smiles is designated to each child’s school.  The school that brings in the most candy wins, and will receive $2 for every pound of candy that was designated to that school.  The winning schools receives an award, a check, and bragging rights for the year.  (Candy may be donated by anyone in the community—children and adults alike—and applied to the school competition.)

Bring unopened candy to Little Smiles Grand Haven (1203 S. Beechtree Street). We will be accepting candy on the following days:

  • Thursday, November 1 — 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
  • Friday, November 2 — 8:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
