WAKEFIELD — Future of Dentistry will be participating again in the Halloween Candy Buyback and local residents are invited to participate. This national program helps limit kids’ candy consumption during the Halloween season, while also benefiting our troops.

Here’s how it works: From Nov. 2 to 7, Future of Dentistry will purchase your leftover Halloween candy. The practice will give $1 per pound for unopened treats. All candy will be donated to Operation Gratitude. It will be sent overseas to our troops, along with toothbrushes that Future of Dentistry will also donate.

Future of Dentistry is located at 968 Main St., Wakefield and serves patients throughout the north of Boston region. For more information, call 781-245-2299 or e-mail
