CDS Meetings & Events
What: Dentists, dental hygienists and others will hand out toothbrushes and toothpaste to thousands of trick-or-treaters at Lincoln Park Zoo's Spooky Zoo Spectacular. The Chicago Dental Society's mascot, Flossie the Beaver, will also be on hand to greet zoo guests.
Why: This year the society estimates that a trick-or-treater, on average, will consume 5,435 calories and more than three cups of sugar from Halloween candy, putting young teeth at risk for cavities. To help turn the tide against tooth decay, the Chicago Dental Society will distribute toothbrushes and tubes of toothpaste to more than 30,000 Chicago children during Halloween.
Background: Tooth decay is the number one chronic illness in children. In fact, 51 million school hours will be lost this year due to dental problems. Research has show that if a child's tooth decay goes untreated, it can lead to tooth loss, speech problems and even loss of self-esteem.
When: Saturday, October 25, from noon to 1 p.m.
Where: The Children's Zoo at Lincoln Park Zoo, 2001 N. Clark St., Chicago.
