Sandfly Family Dental and Premier Dental Designs to Hold July Donation Drive for Kids Cafe

(SAVANNAH, GA) Dr. Angela Canfield, of Sandfly Family Dental in Savannah and Premier Dental Designs in Rincon, has announced that her offices will be collecting donations in July and August for Second Harvest Food Bank’s Kids Cafe program, which helps feed area children who have limited food to eat during the school year.

Canfield invites the community to deliver nonperishable food items including peanut butter, granola bars, peanut butter crackers, mac and cheese, cereal, juice boxes and water to either dental office from Friday, July 14, through Friday, August 18, during office hours, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. The donations will be presented to the Kids Cafe in August.

Kids Cafe is a program of the Second Harvest Food Bank of Coastal Georgia that provides children who are at-risk for hunger with a safe haven during the school year where they can get a nutritious dinner, tutoring and homework assistance. Its services are proven to increase the likelihood that these children complete their education and participate in extra-curricular activities.

“When I look at my young daughter, who is healthy and well fed, I cannot imagine how heartbreaking it would be to not have the means to feed her,” Canfield said. “It takes so little to make a big difference for these children, both in the here and now and for the rest of their lives.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control, healthy eating in childhood and adolescence is important for proper growth and development and can prevent various health conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes, cancer, osteoporosis, iron deficiency and dental cavities.

The Georgia Food Bank estimates that over 700,000 Georgia children live in households without adequate food. Kids Cafe originated in Savannah, Georgia, in 1989 to combat this problem, and it now serves more than 3,200 children each day at one of its sites in Appling, Bulloch, Chatham, Evans, Liberty, Tattnall and Wayne counties.

Kids Cafe is nationally recognized for its balanced evening meals and the mentoring opportunities it offers the children it serves.

Food items can be dropped off at Premier Dental Designs, located at 5871 Highway 21 South in Rincon, and Sandfly Family Dental at 7360 Skidaway, Rd Suite 2 in Savannah.

Artist Jim Cone Donates $20,000 to The Curtis and Elizabeth Anderson Cancer Institute

Artist Jim Cone Donates $20,000 to The Curtis and Elizabeth Anderson Cancer Institute

(SAVANNAH, GA) Savannah artist Jim Cone has presented a $20,000 check to the Curtis and Elizabeth Anderson Cancer Institute (ACI) at Memorial University Medical Center.

Cone donated 50 percent of his profits from his first public fine art exhibition, which was held at 24e Design Co. on Broughton Street featuring drawings, paintings, sculptures and mixed media pieces.

ACI provides cancer screening, diagnosis, surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, support services and long-term follow-up for cancer patients. Cone was diagnosed with throat cancer but has been found cancer-free after treatments at the ACI.

“Overcoming my recent battle with cancer gave me a second chance to explore my creative passion, so I wanted to use this new energy to give other cancer patients the same chance,” said Cone.

Cone, a retired Georgia Power employee, has been creating art for more than 40 years.

Ruel Joyner, owner of 24e Design Co., has known Cone for a number of years called Cone’s work a pure form of passion and said he was honored to showcase the work.

“Jim has painted for pleasure for over four decades. He started his artistic works in his spare time while working a full-time job at Georgia Power, and after his cancer, he really focused on his talents,” Joyner said. “Dr. Guy Petruzzelli and the professional staff at Memorial gave Cone a new lease on life and presented him with a new creative chapter in his life after cancer.”

At the exhibit, between 100 and 150 pieces were unveiled, including “Tybee Nudes” and “Street People.”

In his distinctive style, and with vibrant colors, Cone pushes cubism forward. Considered to be the first abstract style of modern art, Cubist artists try to piece together fragments from different vantage points into one painting. With the spirit of inclusion, one can see the incorporation of cubism in almost all of Cone’s artwork. The bold expression of color often separates and defines Cone’s cubist works from those cubist works by others like Picasso and Braque.

Dentist Angela Canfield to Donate Mouth Guards to Bethesda Football Team

Dentist Angela Canfield to Donate Mouth Guards to Bethesda Academy Football Team

Sandfly Family Dental to Present Custom-Made Mouth Guards to Students at Bethesda Academy in Savannah

(SAVANNAH, GA) Savannah dentist Angela Canfield, with Sandfly Family Dental, will donate custom-made mouth guards to the Bethesda Academy football team for its 2017 season, and the mouth guards will be made in the school colors of navy and gold.

Canfield will take impressions of the players’ teeth at Bethesda at 10 a.m. on Thursday, July 27.

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.

Evidence shows that properly fitting mouth guards can reduce impacts that lead to concussions and other severe injuries,” Canfield said. “Anything I can do to protect local athletes from severe injuries is worth my time and expertise, and I’m happy to help.”

The full fitting, molding and examination of each player’s mouth guards usually cost $440. With 44 players on the Bethesda team, Canfield will be donating approximately $19,360 in mouth-protection gear to Bethesda Academy students.

The 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.

The American Dental Association estimates the use of mouth guards prevents approximately 200,000 injuries a year in high school and college football.

This marks the 3rd year Canfield has picked a local sports team to receive free mouth guards as part of the Canfield Mouth-Shield Program. Applications for the 2018 Canfield Mouth-Shield Team should be submitted to her office. Applications must be submitted by Friday, Sept. 1 to be considered.
