13 Ways for Dentists to Disappoint Trick-or-Treaters

This is just for fun.  I would never do ANY of these…. or would I?  😉

  1. All children must sit in a makeshift waiting room on your front lawn for 20 minutes before receiving one piece of sugar-free candy
  2. Repurpose that old composite by wrapping it in foil in the shape of a Hershey’s Kiss
  3. Distribute disclosing tablets.  Talk about Shock Tarts
  4. Mass produce and distribute leaflets spreading the word about your candy buy-back program
  5. Trade xylitol gum for the promise of positive reviews on Google
  6. Carve a jack-o-lantern with your handpick in the carport to provide foreshadowing
  7. Overload children with candy if they have primary teeth.  Kids with permanent teeth get a candy-coated talking to about the dangers of All Hallow’s Eve
  8. Decorate the outside of your house with clinical pictures of caries
  9. Sell mouthwash lemonade-stand style on the sidewalk
  10. Turn away any trick-or-treaters who didn’t schedule an appointment
  11. Deal exclusively in jawbreakers.  Good for business
  12. Use candy cigarettes to raise awareness for oral cancer screenings
  13. Dress up like a dentist
