breast cancer SouthCoast Health Savannah Hilton Head breast cancer treatment

Dr. Patricia P. Shapiro, who practices at SouthCoast Health Imaging’s Savannah and Hilton Head locations, asserts the benefits of mammography in response to nutritionist Carolyn Guilford’s “Toward True Health” column that ran on earlier this year, under the headline, “Thermography a better alternative.”

In this column, Guilford makes a number of incorrect assertions and provides questionable medical guidance with respect to the use of mammography and thermography in detecting breast cancer, writes Shapiro.

Kid's Dentistree Savannah Richmond Hill pediatric dentists

Below is a guest post from Kid’s Dentistree in Richmond Hill , a pediatric dentist office in Richmond Hill.

Best and Worst Halloween Candy for Your Teeth

For kids, Halloween is all about dressing up in costumes and trying to collect the most trick-or-treat sweets possible. However, there is nothing spookier than the cavities these candy binges can cause. Even though no candy is considered healthy for your teeth, there are some that are better and worse than others. To help you sort out your child’s candy bag, read our Halloween candy blog post.

One of the best times to schedule a trip to the dentist is right after Halloween. Kid’s Dentistree’s talented dentist and team of hygienists will ensure your child’s smile is healthy after all the holiday treats while also teaching them the best dental habits for a lifetime of strong teeth. For more information, click here!

The Kid’s Dentistree office is located in the “Clock Tower” building, right next to The Suites at Station Exchange on Ford Avenue in Richmond Hill.
