Smiles Change Lives (SCL), Kansas City, Mo, has introduced a new format for its [removed]National Candy Exchange[/removed]. The exchange is part of the organization’s initiatives to mark October’s National Orthodontic Health Month.

The new event model invites participants to host a candy exchange event to collect candy and build awareness of oral and orthodontic health for youth. Orthodontists trade their patients healthy treats for their candy. The candy is then weighed and practices make a donation to SCL equivalent to the weight of candy collected.

Anyone interested in organizing a candy exchange in their office, business, or community venue can download all the materials, templates, and resources for free at the SCL [removed]web site[/removed].
