Maspeth Dentist Sponsor Halloween Candy Buy Back

MAspeth_Dentist_Candy_Buy_Back

Maspeth Dentist, Dr. Alexandra Khaimov, is sponsoring a Halloween Candy Buy Back.

As we all know, there are many drawbacks to eating candy besides the fact that one does not know what is in the bag. Too much sugar can and will make a child hyperactive and restless. All the excess sugar can hurt the child’s teeth and put on body weight as well.

We will buy back the candies from the child and thus reward the “good child”, who would not eat the candy anyway, by letting him or her turn trick or treating into a profitable and fun event! 🙂

Maspeth Dentist Sponsored a Halloween Candy Buy Back

Maspeth dentist Dr. Alexandra Khaimov led an anti tooth-decay movement by giving away dollars in exchange for candy this past Halloween.

Trick-or-treaters brought their excess candy to Dr. Khaimov’s office and received $3.00 per pound. This is the first year she is sponsoring a Halloween Candy buy Back.

“Kids still experienced the fun of trick or-treating, and now their piggy banks will benefit as well.” explains Dr. Khaimov.

Dr. Khaimov donated the collected candy to Healthplex.

Maspeth Dentist to Exchange Halloween Candy for Money

With Halloween quickly on the horizon, one local dentist is doing what she can to promote a healthy lifestyle for both your teeth and your whole body.

Maspeth Dentist Dr. Alexandra Khaimov is starting a candy buyback program from that will begin just after Halloween is over. Starting from November 1st and going through November 9th, people will be able to bring candy to both her Maspeth and Elmhurst offices and get money in return.

For every pound of candy you bring to either office, you get $1.

Dr. Khaimov said that the reason she wanted to start the program is to tell people, especially young children, to take care of their teeth and getting candy that cause tooth decay and damage gums should help with that. She also hopes to remind people to take care of rest of their body as well.

“I’m not just a mouth doctor, I want to promote whole health” said Dr. Khaimov, who has only had her Maspeth office open since August of this year. “It starts with the mouth, whatever you put in goes straight to your body.”

A side effect from this program is that it will help promote herself in Maspeth since she is new to the neighborhood. But that’s only a secondary reason for the program, she said, and her main goal is to help people.

“I want people to know me, to know what my goal is and I want to help as many people as possible,”Dr. Khaimov said.

This is the first time that she has done a program like this and it might graduate into a yearly event, Khaimov said, depending on how successful this year’s program is.

According to the American Dental Association (ADA), high sugar intake can lead to tooth decay, especially among children. When bacteria mixes with sugar and starch in the mouth, that produces acid, which attacks teeth for at least 20 minutes, according to the ADA. The U.S Department of Health and Human Services recommends that sugar consumption be limited as too much could intake of healthier foods, such as fruits and vegetables.

As for the candy itself, she said that after it’s over, she’ll donate whatever she collects to local food pantries and churches.

“I’m certainly not going to sit here and eat all the candy by myself,” the Maspeth dentist joked.

Maspeth Dentist Gives Kids Cash for Halloween Candy

QUEENS — This is no trick.

One Maspeth Dentist has decided to fight back against dentistry’s mortal enemy buying back Halloween candy from neighborhood kids.

From Nov. 1 through Nov. 9, Dr. Alexandra Khaimov of Maspeth will offer kids $1 for every pound of candy they bring into her Maspeth or Elmhurst offices.

“Kids can still experience the fun of trick-or-treating, and now their piggy banks will benefit as well,” Khaimov said.

Global sugar consumption for kids increases by about 2 percent annually, and is at 50 million tons per year, Khaimov said, and eating some types of candy can lead to broken teeth and damaged braces.

Tooth decay is five times more prevalent than asthma, and sugar is one of the leading causes of tooth decay, according to the American Dental Association.

Kids can drop their candy off at Best Choice Family Dentist at 40-36 82nd St. in Elmhurst, and at Grand Smile Dental at 69-77 Grand Ave. in Maspeth

Dentist Maspeth NY get you cavity free…for free – Queens Ledger

Dentist Maspeth NY in Queens Ledger

When Carmen Negron’s mother lost her medical coverage this past year, including dental benefits, she wasn’t expecting to find a helping hand at no cost. However, after hearing about Grand Dental Smile’s free dental day, she had to go and check it out.

“I first thought to myself, ‘what’s the catch?’” she said.

Come to find out, there wasn’t one. On Sept. 20, Dentist Maspeth NY Dr. Alexandra Khaimov sponsored the organization’s second free dental day at their Maspeth office at 69-77 Grand Ave. Anyone in need of a cleaning, extraction or dental emergency was helped at no charge.

“It’s an amazing experience because of all the people you get to help,” Khaimov said.

On the first free dental day at their Elmhurst location, Khaimov helped approximately 45 individuals through free cleanings and other procedures. Though there was a smaller turnout at their second free dental day, she stressed that helping even one person made the work worth the effort.

Dentist Maspeth NY, Dr. Alexandra Khaimov explained the importance of regular dental check-ups at least every six months.

“People think because it doesn’t hurt there is not a problem,” she said. “But that is not a reason to neglect regular check-ups.”

For those without dental benefits in today’s economy, many also think that it is impossible to pay for such procedures.

“You can’t afford to neglect your dental health,” Khaimov said.

Warning signs that you need to see a dentist include bleeding gums when you brush and/or floss your teeth.

“It’s terrible when people wait to be seen and their teeth are covered with tartar,” Maspeth dentist Khaimov said. “You shouldn’t want till it becomes a bigger problem.”

As for Negron and her mother, they’re on the right track with their daily dental routines. After a cavity filling for Negron and a tooth extraction for her mother, both are following up with a dentist for help with dental hygiene.

“If I hadn’t gone that day with my mom, I never would have gotten checked out,” Negron said. “It’s best to catch it early.”

Dentist Maspeth NY Dr. Alexandra Khaimov and Grand Dental Smile is planning other free days and events for the future. Call (718)-255-1381 or check out their website at dentistmaspethny.com.
