Peacock Automotive Collision Center Earns Certifications and Undergoes Renovations

(RIDGELAND, S.C.) Peacock Automotive has recently earned new manufacturers’ certifications and completed building renovations at its Collision Center, located at 1667 N. Okatie Hwy in Ridgeland, S.C.

“We have been working on continuous improvement since the facility opened in 2014, continually educating our technicians and estimators,” said Joanie Iaco, Manager of Peacock Collision Center. “We have been able to earn several certifications with additional manufacturers and have added new technicians to our staff.”

Specializing in all types of collision repair from frame straightening to suspension, Peacock Collision Center’s 36,000-square-foot, state-of-the-art facility features precision equipment and computerized paint-mixing systems. To achieve the certified status with manufacturers, the company has worked to maintain its current equipment while investing in new equipment and technology.

The new certifications, which primarily focus on the repair of specific manufacturers’ vehicles, include:
• Assured Performance Certification
• FCA Recognized Certified Repair Facility Program (Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge, Ram, Fiat, MOPAR)
• Enterprise Elite Service Partner Program
• Ford National Body Shop Network
• Hyundai Recognized Certified Repair Facility Program
• Kia Recognized Repair Facility Program
• Audi Aluminum & Factory Certified
• VW Factory Certified
• Honda/Acura Profirst Certified
• Nissan/Infiniti Factory Certified
• I-CAR Gold

“We are dedicated to maintaining strong manufacturer affiliations and performance certifications,” Iaco explained. “This helps assure our customers that their vehicles will be attended by a team of experienced technicians who do everything possible to get them back to like-new condition, no matter the extent of the damage.”

Other recent improvements include renovations to the customer lounge and employee lounge. New individual desk spaces were also added to the adjusters’ area.

“Customers can now enjoy watching a big-screen TV from comfortable leather chairs or from new café-style high-top tables while they wait to get back on the road,” Iaco added. “We strive to make the repair process as pleasant and hassle-free as possible, and offer the kind of stellar hospitality that drivers expect from Peacock Collision Center.”

Jenkins High School and Savannah Christian Preparatory School Received Custom Mouth Guards from Sandfly Family Dental

By | Local NewsWIRE

(SAVANNAH, GA) Football teams from Jenkins High School and Savannah Christian Preparatory School received free custom mouth guards courtesy of the 2018 Canfield Mouth Shield Program sponsored by Dr. Angela Canfield of Sandfly Family Dental in Savannah and Premier Dental Designs in Rincon.

This was the fifth year Canfield has donated mouth guards to local schools. These custom-made mouth guards provide stability to the players’ jaws and cushion blows that can cause severe dental injuries such as broken teeth, fractured jaws, gum lacerations and injuries to their lips or tongue.

Savannah Christian has three football teams that benefited from the donation: a fifth- and sixth-grade team, a seventh- and eighth-grade team and a high school team.

“We are excited to use this gift as a chance to educate our players on safety fundamentals,” said Eddie Wilson, a school board member and volunteer head coach for the SCPS fifth- and sixth-grade team.

Jenkins High School is the first Savannah public school to win consecutive regional football titles during the 2016-2017 and 2017-2018 seasons. Canfield’s donation will allow the team to put more of its booster club’s fundraising capacities toward providing pre- and post-game meals for its players.

“Properly fitted mouth guards are proven to reduce the damage of impacts that often lead to concussions and other severe injuries,” Canfield said. “It is a privilege to put my time and expertise toward protecting local athletes from these types of injuries.”

The full fitting, molding and examination of each player’s mouth guards usually costs $440. Between Jenkins and SCPS, 177 players will benefit from this donation, which amounts to $51,480 of donated protection pieces.

These mouth guards have a one-year warranty that covers dental expenses incurred by players who 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.

Jenkins High School football team gets fitted for custom mouth guards by Dr. Angela Canfield of Sandfly Family Dental and Premier Dental Designs.
