(Savannah pediatricians) New pediatrician @ Memorial Health’s Children Care

Wednesday, April 10th, 2019

Savannah pediatricians Memorial Health Andrew Gunter

Dr. Andrew W. Gunter, a board-certified pediatrician, has joined the staff of Memorial Health University Physicians | Children’s Care. Previously, he was in private practice in Charlotte, North Carolina.

Gunter earned his medical degree from the Medical University of South Carolina and his undergraduate degree from Clemson University. He completed his pediatric residency at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, DC, where he was chief resident.

Gunter’s philosophy of care is simple. “I care for my patients the way I’d want my children treated,” he said. “If you do that, you can’t go wrong.

“I treat my patients with the same goals in mind that most parents have for their own children. You want them to trust you and your words, you want them to know you care for them, and you want to do your best to meet their needs by listening and allaying their fears with comforting words,” he added.

Gunter and his wife are the parents of two teenagers – a son and a daughter.

Children’s Care is part of Memorial Health’s 34-practice network of primary and specialty care physicians in southeast Georgia and southern South Carolina.

SouthCoast Health Physical Therapist Chris Curry

Name one of the most common reasons for a person to visit the doctor’s office?

Answer: back pain.

Around 80 percent of people will experience back pain at some point in their lives.

“In your spine, there are 26 bones stacked together and connected by ligaments, muscles, and shock-absorbing discs,” SouthCoast Health Physical Therapist Chris Curry said. “Countless things can cause any of those components to be harmed and have people in desperate need to see a doctor.”

Find out more about what your back pain means, reasons for your back pain and what you can do about it on the SouthCoast Health Web site here.

(Richmond Hill pediatric dentists) Kid’s Dentistree shares tips for Children’s Dental Health Month

Thursday, February 7th, 2019

Kid's Dentistree Pediatric Dentistry Richmond Hill Savannah

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

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month. At Kids’ Dentistree in Richmond Hill , our work revolves around educating parents and their children on good dental habits. This month, we are sharing some tips and advice on how to promote these habits at home for a lifetime of healthy smiles for your children.

The American Dental Association (ADA) established National Children’s Dental Health Month over thirty years ago to promote the benefits starting young to achieve good oral health. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, tooth decay is the most common chronic childhood disease in the country. Tooth decay affects more children than asthma or hay fever. In fact, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that 40% of children will have some tooth decay by the time they enter kindergarten. The good news for parents is that tooth decay is preventable!

The following recommendations will get your child off to a great start with good dental health.

Brush and floss twice each day

The best weapons available to a parent are a toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss. The ADA recommends that parents teach their children to brush for two minutes two times a day—morning and evening at bedtime. Use only a pea-sized amount of toothpaste and teach your child to avoid swallowing toothpaste. Parents should provide help and supervision until a child is about seven or eight years old.

Limit sugary treats and drinks

This includes avoiding juice between meals. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommends limiting juice to four to six ounces per day. Parents can also replace sugary treats with healthy snacks such as cheese, yogurt, and fruit.

Schedule a dental checkup

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that parents schedule their child’s first visit to the dentist when the child turns one year of age. First birthday equals first checkup. However, if a parent detects discoloration or staining, they should schedule an appointment right away.

Make sure your water has fluoride

Fluoride helps teeth resist acid attacks by strengthening tooth enamel. If your local water supply does not have fluoride, talk to your dentist about fluoride drops or tablets.

National Children’s Dental Health Month is a good reminder that it’s never too early to start your child on the path of good dental health. Habits developed early tend to become lifelong habits.

From toddlers to teens, Kid’s Dentistree makes going to the dentist a fun and seamless experience by building trusting relationships with parents and children at our 1101 Gandy Dancer office in Richmond Hill. For more information, visit KidsDentistree.com or schedule an appointment today by calling the office at 912-756-5437.
