Serenity Dental Studio is looking to host its eighth annual Halloween Candy Buy Back in early November. However, it is not feasible with the current staffing shortage. Serenity Dental Studio is in need of a dental assistant/receptionist or a health advocate to help care for patients and perform office duties.

The possibility of using volunteers for the Halloween Candy Buy Back is being considered. None-the-less, this would also require orientation and/or training by the office.

 

Last year, Serenity Dental Studio collected 1,448 pounds of candy and had it sent to troops overseas with Packages4Patriots (Elk Grove). Serenity Dental Studio sincerely enjoys hosting the Halloween Candy Buy Back, interacting with candy donors, and supporting the US troops.

If anyone can help bring the Halloween Candy Buy Back program back by either referring a candidate for employment, or offering to volunteer, please contact the office at 847-519-1711, email serenitydentalstudio@outlook.com or visit serenitydentalschaumburg.com.
