Since Halloween is on its way, the gang at Frazer Dental wasnts to stop decay in its tracks. Have your child (ages 6 to 13) bring in a pound of their Halloween candy and we will give them a crisp, new $5 bill!

The office will also be making a $100 donation to our local Home of the Sparrow, a charitable organization dedicated to improving the lives of homeless women and children; providing housing and supportive services to homeless and low income women who want to improve their lives and become self-sufficient.

Frazer Dental has named this event “Cash for Candy” and it begins the morning after Halloween and runs through Nov. 13. No appointment necessary and you don’t even have to be a patient!

The Frazer Dental office is located in the Frazer Shopping Cetner at 480 Lancaster Ave in Frazer.
