RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Patient First is working to take the trick out of trick-or-treating. This year, the clinics are offering free safety lights and safety tip cards to all children who visit.
You can even stop by a Patient First on Monday, October 31 from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. for free candy X-rays. All of these efforts not only help the kids, but parents as well.
"It gives them an added feeling of safety that we've looked at the X-rays and just kind of double-checked to make sure that there's no glass, no plastic, or metal there," said Dr. Michelle Headley.

The following Patient First Neighborhood Medical Centers will provide the free candy X-rays:
