CHICAGO--Visitors who attend Lincoln Park Zoo's Spooky Zoo Spectacular on Saturday, October 26 between 9 a.m. and 1 p.m. will receive a “treat” that is sure to make them smile when visiting the Chicago Dental Society and Crest booth. Volunteers from the CDS and Crest will be distributing toothpaste, toothbrushes, dental literature, puzzles and quizzes to all attendees.
“This event is the prefect opportunity to remind parents that candy consumption is acceptable as long as it is done in moderation and followed with proper oral hygiene,” said Alice Boghosian, DDS, a general dentist who practices in Niles, IL, and serves as spokesperson for CDS.
This year will mark the 16th year of the Spooky Zoo Spectacular, an event designed to give kids and families a free-of-charge opportunity to trick-or-treat and celebrate Halloween. Candy and treats are distributed at each one of the animal houses. It is expected that more than 30,000 children and adults will attend this event.
“Flossie,” the mascot of CDS and the Illinois State Dental Society, will be present to pass out treats, as will “Sparkle,” the mascot for Crest toothpaste. Both mascots will participate in the zoo parade that kicks off the event. Marching bands, Bozo the Clown, jugglers, and other mascots will participate as well.
This is the sixth year that the CDS and Crest have worked together to distribute educational materials and dental products. Crest, made by Procter & Gamble, was the first product to receive the American Dental Association's Seal of Acceptance in 1961.
