Noting the popularity of sugary sweets this time of year, health advocates are concerned about keiki’s teeth.
So the Aloha Medical Mission held its inaugural Trick or Teeth event at Palama Settlement on Sunday.
There were games and popcorn along with free oral healthcare supplies.
The message? Candy is okay in moderation.
“So if you’re going to eat your candy, you got to brush too, so that’s the whole idea. We invited like-minded partners that way we can connect with them cause they do give back to the community as well,” said Toni Muranaka with the Aloha Medical Mission.
The Aloha Medical Mission serves about 150 patients each month.
