Dentist buys back Halloween candy for good cause

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - A dentist office in the North County opened its doors for the first time on Sunday and collected kids' Halloween candy for a good cause. 

The Brush Stop in Carlsbad exchanged toys for unwanted candy during their grand opening. Employees say the trade serves two purposes. One is to collect donations to give to troops overseas through Operation Gratitude and the other is keeping children healthy. 

It is estimated that Americans spend more than $2.5 billion on Halloween treats each year.
