Dr. Angela Canfield Holds Second Inspiring Smiles Series Talk in Honor of Oral Cancer Awareness Mont

Dr. Angela Canfield Holds Second Inspiring Smiles Series Talk in Honor of Oral Cancer Awareness Month

(SAVANNAH, GA) Dr. Angela Canfield of Sandfly Family Dental in Savannah, GA announces the second talk in the 2015 Inspiring Smiles Series will be held Tuesday, April 14, from noon to 1 p.m. The discussion is titled “Oral DNA and Periodontal Testing.”

Periodontal diseases, such as gingivitis, are caused from bacteria that inflames the gums. Symptoms include bad breath, red or swollen gums, and receding gums. Dr. Canfield will explain the benefits of early detection and the process to determine patients’ risks of these diseases.

According Dentistry Today, every sixty minutes, a person dies from oral cancer. The disease is typically associated with long-term tobacco use, but it is becoming more frequent in young adults who have never smoked. Besides tobacco use, the risk factors that could lead to oral cancer include DNA abnormalities or family history. But the main cause, especially in young adults who don’t smoke, is the human papillomavirus (HPV), which may be spread by sexually active people through intimate contact.

“HPV is the leading cause of cervical cancer, which was once the leading cause of cancer deaths for women in the United States,” said Dr. Canfield, “Now that women routinely get PAP tests, which provide early detection of conditions that could lead to cervical cancer, those cancer rates are on the decline. In fact, these days, a person is three times more likely to die from oral cancer than cervical cancer.”

The Inspiring Smiles Series will take place at Dr. Canfield’s office located at 7360 Skidaway Rd., Suite H2. It is free to attend, but there is an encouraged donation to the Savannah Children’s Theatre. To RSVP, call Dr. Canfield at 912-349-0472. Dr. Canfield will also be giving away free oral cancer screenings during the month of April; any interested person is asked to call her office for more information.

ABOUT DR. ANGELA CANFIELD
Dr. Canfield is licensed by the Georgia Board of Dentistry and the National Board of Dentist. She owns and practices at two dental offices: Premier Dental Designs located in Rincon, GA at 5871 HWY 21 South, and Sandfly Family Dental located in the Norwood Market in Savannah, GA.

Matilda Jane Clothing Launches Tween Line featuring Savannah in Photos

Matilda Jane Clothing Launches Tween Line featuring Savannah in Photos

(SAVANNAH, GA) Matilda Jane Clothing is pleased to announce the release of “435,” its very first tween collection. Developed with the input of a community of tween girls, 435 is being launched nationally with photos featuring Savannah as backdrop.

“The early reviews are proclaiming 435 a huge hit,” said Robyn Shirley, an independent Trunk Keeper for the clothing company. “Tweens are loving the cool simplicity of the line and how it reflects their style. It has a decidedly more grown up feel, but not too grown up.”

Shirley is part of a network of independent representatives who get to know their customers personally. Having operated in South Carolina since 2008, she recently expanded her business to the Savannah area and now serves as a Team Leader as well as a Trunk Keeper for Matilda Jane Clothing.

“Designing for older girls is tricky, but Matilda Jane did it, with a focus group providing input from the girls themselves,” Shirley added. “The result was age-appropriate, stylish designs in sizes eight to fourteen, that moms love, too.”

In developing the new tween clothing line, Matilda Jane looked to the Trunk Keepers’ daughters for insight on fashion, fit and functionality. The tween girls formed the Matilda Jane tween council. Several members of the tween council were chosen to also model their creations at the 435 photo shoot, held this past December in Savannah.

“I am thrilled that our beautiful city was selected for the photo shoot and will be so prominently featured in the Matilda Jane national spring marketing campaign, including print, social media and web promotions,” said Shirley. “Savannah has a cool vibe that blends perfectly with history and tradition, much like the new 435 clothing line itself.”

(SAVANNAH, GA) On Saturday, March 28, the Caring Bunny will be greeting families at the lower level of Center Court in the Savannah Mall, located at 14045 Abercorn St. With an atmosphere free from bright, flashing lights, or high-energy music, all children with different abilities are invited to meet Caring Bunny at this free event from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m.

“April happens to be Autism Awareness Month, which is why we wanted to offer a chance for children with different abilities to meet with an Easter icon,” said Phil McConnell, Savannah Mall’s general manager. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)’s most recent data suggests an average of one in 110 children have an autism spectrum disorder. Autistic children’s senses can be oversensitive or under-developed, which affects how they experience different environments, making background noises unbearably loud or confusing. This can cause anxiety or even physical pain. For more information on the CDC’s information on autism, visit http://www.cdc.gov/ncbddd/autism/features/counting-autism.html

Savannah Mall’s Caring Bunny greets children in a calm environment, in an effort to make the Easter Bunny experience enjoyable for everyone. In addition, families will be given a 5 x 7 photograph from the visit, and a complimentary ride on the children’s train.

Canfield Mouth Shield Program Excepting Applications for 2015 Donation

By | Local NewsWIRE | No Comments

Canfield Mouth Shield Program Excepting Applications for 2015 Donation

(SAVANNAH, GA) Angela Canfield, DDS of Sandfly Family Dental, is now accepting applications for the 2015 Canfield Mouth Shield Program. Local organizations may apply to win custom fit mouth guards in personalized colors for their entire team.

Last year, Dr. Canfield donated maroon and white mouth guards to the Benedictine Military School football team, a donation totaling over $9,000 worth of protection equipment.

Custom-made intact mouth guards provide stability to the players’ jaws and cushion blows that can cause severe dental injuries, like broken teeth, fractured jaws, gum lacerations and injuries to their lips or tongue by their teeth.

“Damaging jaw and tooth impact can be caused by anything from direct contact to a misplaced step while running,” said Dr. Canfield. “I choose to donate the gear because research shows that wearing custom-fit mouth guards reduces the risk of severe injuries."

Custom-fit mouth guards normally cost $85 a piece. Dr. Canfield will be donating mouth guards to every player of the selected team free of charge.

The mouth guards have a one year warranty. The warranty covers the dental expenses incurred by players if they are injured while wearing the mouth guards. The warranty also pays $1,093.75 per injured or replaced tooth and up to a maximum total liability of $35,000 per incident.

The American Dental Association (ADA) estimates that the use of mouth guards prevents approximately 200,000 injuries per year in high school and college football teams alone. But mouth guards are important for all types of sports. Wrestling, basketball, soccer, baseball and softball teams are encouraged to apply.

Applications for the 2015 Canfield Mouth Shield Program must be submitted before June 1, 2015 to be considered by the advisory board. For more information or to apply, visit http://www.sandflyfamilydental.com/community/ .

ABOUT DR. ANGELA CANFIELD
Dr. Canfield is licensed by the Georgia Board of Dentistry and the National Board of Dentist. She owns and practices at two dental offices: Premier Dental Designs located in Rincon, GA at 5871 HWY 21 South, and Sandfly Family Dental located in the Norwood Market in Savannah, GA. Both dental offices provide Family/Preventative Dentistry, Cosmetic Dentistry, Restorative Dentistry, Orthodontic Dentistry, Digital X-Rays, E4D One Day Crowns, Electronic Claims, Intra Oral Camera and Paperless Charting.

All trends point towards fresher, greener, faster and better-for-you snacks and meals for all parts of the day. Enmark understands this and has made a big investment to give their loyal customers a new option.

UNFI is the leading independent national distributor of natural, organic and specialty foods and related products including nutritional supplements, personal care items and organic produce.

“We’ve organized the Encourage Health lecture series, and we have a history of working with our suppliers to carry their healthier product options,” said Clements, "Over 50% of Americans snack three or more times per day. Why not make it easier for them to make a healthy choice when they snack?”
