An eastern Iowa dentist says Halloween candy is too scary for your teeth. Dr. Carol Moreno, a dentist in West Liberty, says candy attacks your enamel and eventually makes cavities as it is full of sugar. She says there’s an increase in cavities as kids eat more candy and drink more pop.Moreno says as a “public service”, she offers local kids a dollar for every pound of candy they bring into her office the day after Halloween.Moreno says the kids get a goodie bag, too, with a toothbrush, popcorn and a prize — like a spider ring. Moreno’s been doing this for 11 years. Last year, Moreno got 37 pounds of candy from West Liberty kids.
