The Geneva Family Dental staff proudly displays the 855 lbs. of candy collected for troops overseas.

Geneva Family Dental’s Halloween Candy Buyback program collected over 855 lbs. of candy, snacks and toothbrushes for troops overseas.  Children turning in their excess candy were awarded $1 per lb. up to 5 lbs. Dr. Melissa Jentz-Cote said, “We had an overwhelming response this year and are very excited to support our troops by sending them a sweet treat with our appreciation.” The candy was boxed and shipped courtesy of donations provided by local businesses -  Logon Group Dental IT, Prose Orthodontics, Elite Dental Specialists and Midwest Dental Implantology.

Geneva Family Dental located at 2631 Williamsburg Ave., Suite 201 in Geneva provides general family dental care as well as cosmetic procedures. More information may be found at
