Riverside Dental Offers Cash for Candy this Halloween!

October 24, 2019


This Halloween, Ladner dentist, Dr. Raj Dhiman of Riverside Dental will once again promote a healthier Halloween with his ‘Cash for Candy’ program. Dr. Dhiman will pay $2 for every pound of Halloween candy a child exchanges at Riverside Dental from November 4th to 7th, 2019 and a matching donation will then be made to Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation. This innovative program has raised over $9,500 through the past several years.


As a father, Dr. Dhiman knows how fun and festive Halloween can be for children and parents alike. Parents like the Cash for Candy program as it’s a healthier alternative without taking away the fun and excitement of trick-or-treating. The kids feel like they’re making a difference in their community, with the bonus of exchanging money for their Halloween candy.  


As a family practice supported by the South Delta community, Dr. Dhiman is proud to offer this healthy alternative and also to support the Delta Hospital and Community Health Foundation at the same time.


Halloween candy can be exchanged during the following office hours: Monday, Nov. 4 from 8-4; Tuesday, Nov. 5 from 11-7; Wednesday, Nov. 6: 10-7; and, Thursday, Nov. 7: 8-4. Children can weigh their candy on a large scale to see exactly how much they are contributing to Delta Hospital. Collected candy will then be donated to a drug rehabilitation centre.


Riverside Dental is located at 130-4977 Trenant St. (across from the Ladner Bottle Depot). For more information, call 604-946-9588 or e-mail smile@ladnerdentist.com.
