Clearly you do not have children.
"Just brush your teeth, kids" ha ha ha ha. If only life were that easy!!!
This is a nice option for kids. They can eat some of their candy, and sell some back. Children do not need hundreds of $$$ and they did not buy the candy, nor their costume, etc. so it is a good deal for them.

I hope this dentist will donate the candy to some worthy institution like a homeless shelter or such rather than throwing away the candy. Additionally, he needs to "incentivize"parents from letting their children take the candy in the first place.

"He should donate the candy to the girlscouts. They are shipping donated candy to troops overseas."
Viola! What a great idea for re-purposing an excess we enjoy in the States.
Upon reflection, if something as small as candy can uplift a soldier overseas, it only underscores the tremendous sacrifice our troops are making for our country, and at the expense of their own lives and families.
