Dentist in Maspeth Took a Stand Against Sweets This Halloween

Maspeth Dentist Dr. Khaimov

During Halloween, Dr. Alexandria Khaimov, dentist in Maspeth, led an anti tooth-decay movement by giving away dollars in exchange for the excess candy collected from trick-or-treating.

Trick-or-treaters were invited to bring in their excess candy and Dr. Khaimov bought it for $1 for each pound brought. She collected close to 25 pounds of Halloween treats.

Dr. Khaimov is passionate about encouraging proper oral health among the children in her community.

“The kids still got to experience the fun of trick-or-treating, but with the added benefit of growing their piggy banks and sparing their teeth and gums unnecessary strain from all the candy,” says Dr. Alexandra Khaimov.

It is no secret that children around the world love candy. In fact, the global sugar consumption for kids increases by about 2 percent each year, and by 2013, it had reached 50 million tons.

These figures only confirm the fact that parents have a more difficult task of ensuring their children’s teeth are well cared for. In addition to hurting their teeth, candy also leads to hyperactivity and weigh gain in children. Broken teeth and damaged braces are also common phenomena among young candy eaters.

This was the 3rd year in a row Dr. Khaimov organized a Halloween Candy Buy Back. This year, Facebook fans got an extra dollar for every pound of candy they brought by simply sharing Dr. Khaimov’s Halloween Candy Buy Back Facebook message.

Dr. Khaimov is ready to help with her next community event – a Holiday Coat Drive in which she encourages the members of her community to donate coats and jackets they no longer need. This is to help meet the demand for warm coats this winter.

Dr. Khaimov proudly serves the residents of Brooklyn, Ridgewood, Middle Village, Woodside and Maspeth.
