Dentist to Buy Back Halloween Candy From Children

A West Des Moines dentist is trying to keep children from consuming too much Halloween candy and winding up with cavities.

Dr. Steffany Mohan calls her campaign "Cash for Candy" and she plans pay a dollar for each pound of sugary goodies kids are willing to turn in to her.

Mohan says that after the collection, she plans to send the candy to U.S. troops serving overseas — probably accompanied by free toothbrushes.

The Cash for Candy buyback takes place Sunday afternoon at Plaza Dental in West Des Moines.
