A New Mexico dentist has a unique way of fighting cavaties in children.
KRQE-TV reports that Albuquerque dentist Byron Wall bought candy back from trick-or-treaters on Sunday afternoon.
Wall says children 14 years old or younger were invited to pawn their sweets at his office.
His office paid $1 for every pound of candy up to $5.
"It is crazy sometimes. The first year we filled up a flat bed pickup truck seven times," Wall said.
The purchased candy goes to Blue Star Moms, a nonprofit supporting New Mexico troops.
Wall says the organization packages the candy along with clothes and food in holiday boxes to ship to soldiers in November.
His office collected more than 1,000 pounds of candy last year.
