Sponsor Spotlight: Children’s Dental Theatre

MO-ChildrensDentalTheatre-wAs parents, most of us have experienced a child and the dentist office – not a very fun experience. Our featured sponsor has creatively changed that. Children’s Dental Theatre in St. Louis, has taken the dread out of the dentist visit for kids. Children enjoy a movie in one of two theaters, and continue the movie in the exam room!  This approach to dental care for children has won rave reviews from both parents and kids. Children’s Dental Theatre provides preventive dental care, including:

  • Cavity Prevention
  • Dental Cleanings
  • Dental Exams and X-rays
  • Dental Sealants
  • Tooth Brushing
  • As well as other services

They have put some fun into a dentist visit for kids (and parents too!) It is so very important to make kids comfortable going to the dentist to set up for a lifetime of proper oral health.

Children’s Dental Theatre’s participation in the Adopt-A-Highway program has been the most effective marketing tool, reaching new and potential patients daily.  The program has allowed us to contribute to our community in a meaningful way that resonates with our patient base.”

  Jennifer Jones, Partner Children’s Dental Theatre | St. Louis, MO

We are proud to have Children’s Dental Theatre as an Adopt-A-Highway sponsor! Look for their sign on I-70 East at the Kingshighway Blvd. exit.  and visit them at for more information or to make your appointment today!

How do I Adopt A Highway?

Adopt-A-Highway: Volunteer & Sponsorship

The term and concept of Adopt-A-Highway is well-known throughout the United States. Lesser known, is the fact that most states offer two very different Adopt-A-highway programs.

Volunteer Adopt-A-Highway Program

The first is a Volunteer Adopt-A-Highway program, in which organizations or individuals sign up to clean a certain segment of roadway. Most often twice a year clean up is suggested for Volunteer programs. These programs have been very successful and are of great value to any community. However, there are some limitations due to traffic safety and an increased danger in the litter being thrown to side of the roads – needles, meth pots and broken bottles.

Sponsorship Adopt-A-Highway/Sponsor-A-Highwayadopt-a-highway-sign-massachusetts

On highly traveled highways, it is unsafe for volunteers to be out collecting litter. It is also extremely expensive for state DOTs to keep the highways litter-free. In comes the Sponsor-A-Highway program. It is a simple concept, with great marketing power. Here is how it works:

  1. A business, organization or individual pays a fee to sponsor a 1- or 2-mile segment of a highway or Interstate.
  2. They get a prominent sign, featuring their name and logo on that segment.
  3. Our trained crews come in a clean the sponsored location anywhere from every 2-weeks to 6 times a year, depending amount of litter, location and DOT requirements

Both Adopt-A-Highway and Sponsor-A-Highway programs improve the community in which they are based and help divert funds that would be used on litter removal to greater safety issues. We hope that everybody gets involved and contributes in one way or another. To find a program in your area: go to or your state DOT website.

Happy Easter to our Peeps (Sponsors)

peepsAt Adopt-A-Highway Litter Removal Service of America, we wish you the happiest or Easter! Enjoy your treats, our Peeps!

In 1953, it took 27 hours to make a single Peep Marshmallow. Today, at the Peeps factory in Bethlehem, PA, it takes just 6 minutes per Peep. In fact, more than 5.5 million chicks are hatched per day. Yellow chicks are the ORIGINAL. Yellow Peeps (chicks and bunnies) are the most popular, followed by pink, lavender, blue, then white.

For the past 20 years, no other non-chocolate Easter candy has been able to compete with Peeps. During Easter, Peeps even outsell jelly beans.

Americans will eat more than 600 million Marshmallow Peeps and Bunnies this Easter. Some popular ways to eat Peeps: stale, microwaved, frozen, roasted, in s’mores or served as toppings on pizza.

Enjoy your Peeps any way you like this Easter – April 5th.

Look Out for Road Debris

LitterBlown tires, hubcaps, mattresses, landscaping tools and scraps, and large pieces of furniture are seen on the roads every day. A poorly secured load can go airborne if the vehicle carrying it reaches a high speed. Not only can debris damage your car, it can also cause a collision as vehicles swerve to avoid it. AAA suggests the following to help avoid colliding with roadway debris:

Slow down – it gives you more time to react should debris be in your lane

Watch all lanes – if you need to swerve, know which lane is safest for a quick lane change

Don’t tailgate – if the person in front of you veers to avoid items, you need time to react

Report hazardous situations immediately

The daily chore of clearing debris, litter and other hazards from highways is costing a lot of money. And that cost is on the rise. In fact, more than $11.5 billion is spent annually for litter and debris removal annually on U.S. highways. These high cost limits a state’s ability to provide improvement and repairs to our roadways. One way to offset these costs is to support the Sponsor-A-Highway program in your state. Contact us for more information.
