Dentists give children yet another reason to hate them
Metro Dentalcare dentists must hate children. That's got to be it. Lecturing young 'uns about not flossing and applying butt-ugly braces clearly wasn't enough torture for the masked teeth cleaners. They've stepped up their offensive on children with an act so despicable, dentists may soon replace clowns as kids' most feared professionals. The dentists are literally taking candy from babies. Well, it's more like they're buying candy from children, but the principle is the same.
Metro Dentalcare locations in Burnsville, Chanhassen, and Maple Grove are paying young trick-or-treaters $1 per pound of candy, up to five pounds, for their hard-gotten loot. In a press release, their apparent ringleader explains making a mockery of kids' best-loved holiday. “As dentists, we enjoy a sugary treat once in a while too, but cavities don’t have to follow,” said Dr. Melissa Naidyhorski, from Metro Dentalcare Chanhassen. The dentists' missive goes on to explain that the candy will be donated to ill children staying at Ronald McDonald House charities who couldn't go trick-or-treating. If you hate your children as much as these dentists do, their sinister plot will be carried out from 10 am- 1 pm on Sat., Nov. 1 at these locations.
