CHICAGO--Trick-or-treaters who visit the homes of dentists this Halloween have a 57% chance of getting something sweet to eat, according to a poll conducted this month by the Chicago Dental Society. In a survey of 200 members, the society found that the majority would be handing out candy this Halloween, beating out toothbrushes (19%), fruit (1%) and non-edible items such as stickers and crayons (11%).
Chicago dentist Dr. Chester Klos is now firmly in the candy camp, after last year's treat of toothpaste and other dental care products ended up covering his neighbors' cars and sidewalks instead of cleaning kids' teeth. “If you think that getting TP'd is a pain, take it from me--getting flossed is worse,” he said.
Other tips and findings from the survey:
The Chicago Dental Society represents the interests of 4,100 dentists in Cook, Lake and DuPage Counties and advocates for improving oral health care for all. Each Halloween, the society distributes 30,000 toothbrushes and tubes of toothpaste to Chicago area children.
A tradition of working for the dental profession. The Chicago Dental Society was organized in 1864 and incorporated in 1878. The objective of the Chicago Dental Society is to encourage the improvement of the health of the public, to promote the art and science of dentistry and to represent the intrest of the members of the profession and the public that it serves.
