Paying it Forward: Get involved in your community

It's official!  Krantz Dental Care of Mandarin (Jacksonville) has done it again!

Doubling their intake from last year, Krantz Dental Care of Mandarin, collected a new record of 1,400 pounds of Halloween candy for our troops serving overseas.  “It’s a win-win situation,” says Dr. Alan Krantz.  “We get to promote a healthy Halloween for children, while at the same time, are able to let our troops know we are thinking of them.  Some of the children even wrote notes to be included with the candy—it was extremely touching to read their messages.”

All last week, children brought in their candy to Krantz Dental Care and received $1 for every pound.  In addition, Krantz Dental Care donated an additional $1 to Feed a Needy Neighbor, a Jacksonville program that helps local families.  Local schools got involved this year with Durbin Creek Elementary, Pine Forest Elementary and Creekside High School collecting 650, 62 and 85 pounds, respectfully.  Nice, big checks went to each of those schools and Feed a Needy Neighbor received a check last week for $1,440 from Krantz Dental Care.  Also part of this promotion, was free dental exams for those families who participated in this annual event.

Located at 12058 San Jose Blvd., Suite #102, Dr. Alan Krantz can serve all of your family’s dental needs.  “We have practiced in Jacksonville for 16 years and it has always been important to us to give back to our community.  It is a priority for us,” said Business Manager Adria Krantz.  For more information, visit their website at
