SouthCoast Health Pediatric Provider on the Importance of the HPV Vaccine

Every year in the United States, 33,700 women and men are diagnosed with cancer caused by HPV infection. The good news? The HPV vaccination can help prevent these diseases with a success rate as high as 90% in some cases.

“The age recommended for children to get their HPV vaccine has been getting younger and younger,” SouthCoast Health Nurse Practitioner Beth Lee stated. “With its incredible success rate of preventing such awful diseases, it’s really a must for any child.”

(Savannah pediatricians) SouthCoast Health on whether hand sanitizer works as well as hand washing

Monday, January 25th, 2021

SouthCoast Health Pediatrician Blaine Crossland

Does hand sanitizer work as well as hand-washing?

SouthCoast Health Pediatrician Blaine Crossland answers that question and shares some facts to consider when deciding whether to reach for hand sanitizer or if you should wash your hands with warm water and soap.

“People love hand sanitizer, because it’s a convenient option to keep in a purse, backpack, or car when you do not have access to soap and water,” said SouthCoast Health Pediatrician Blaine Crossland in Richmond Hill. “It’s great for kids too, because sometimes it’s hard to wrangle them to hold still long enough to wash their hands properly.”

Which is better? Hand-washing. Learn why here.

Richmond Hill Pediatric Dentists: Best and Worst Halloween Candy for Your Teeth

Saturday, October 3rd, 2020

Pediatric Dentists Savannah Richmond Hill Pooler

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.

Savannah-Chatham public school parents, pediatrician urge board to provide in-person school option

Friday, September 11th, 2020

Savannah schools reopening Chatham County

UPDATE: On Wed. Sept. 16, Savannah-Chatham public school board approved a phased-in, hybrid model for return to in-person learning. Details here. 

Savannah-Chatham public school board will continue to discuss a possible phased in return to in-person learning at a 9AM meeting Wed. Sept. 16 after hearing from parents & community members at the Sept. 9 meeting.

Watch the 9AM Wed. Sept. 16 on the SCCPSS YouTube channel here. 

________________________________

The majority of those who spoke Sept. 9 urged the board to give parents the option of having their children return to in-person learning. Currently, Savannah-Chatham public schools are only offering virtual learning, with no set date for a return to in-person learning. (Savannah Classical Academy is a K-12 free public charter school that’s part of the local school system and is offering in-person learning)

Watch the Sept. 9 meeting here.

Particularly noteworthy are comments from Memorial Health pediatrician Dr. Andrew Gunter about 31 min. into the video. He advocates for returning to in-person learning with necessary precautions. Caring for children ages 0-18 at Memorial, the majority on Medicaid, Dr. Gunter said in-person learning is far superior and safer than online learning. He emphasized the important role teachers have in keeping kids safe, that teachers identify abuse and mental health disorders more often than parents and pediatricians, saying “We’ve had more children die from abuse and suicide in Chatham than from COVID.”

Dr. Gunter volunteered a group of pediatricians to help the board reopen schools safely.

“Please know we are a voice for our patients who have no say, we see the destruction of health and well being of children in our community and we’ve been examining patients safely for over seven months through this crisis. We can help show you how it can be done there just has to be will to get it done. Nothing is impossible,” Dr. Gunter said.

Savannah pediatricians Richmond Hill Chatham county pediatrics

Pediatrician at SouthCoast Health Dr. Blaine Crosland says it’s still better to be safe than sorry when it comes to students who have been exposed to the virus.

“Information is evolving constantly,” Crosland said. “In fact, we are recommending that children who have been exposed to coronavirus, but are asymptomatic and test negative, that they still quarantine for 14 days. It’s a tough conversation to have and we understand people’s frustration.”

SouthCoast Health Nurse Practitioner Lactation Specialist answers breastfeeding questions

Tuesday, August 11th, 2020

SouthCoast Health Breastfeeding Savannah lactation consultant

According to the American Academy Pediatrics Journal, while many mothers initiate breastfeeding, only 29 percent of babies are breastfed during their first 12 months.

Breastfeeding can be hard, especially for new mothers. Pair that with the fact that it can often be difficult to find trusted information and medical professionals to aid in the process, it’s no wonder many moms turn to formula.

SouthCoast Health’s Nurse Practitioner Lactation Specialist Haley Dickerson in Savannah wants to change that.

To help guide mothers who are considering breastfeeding, Dickerson answers a few commonly asked breastfeeding questions here.
