As part of our commitment to service, we have proudly established the Howard Charitable Foundation. The Foundation is committed to supporting programs that support the education and health care of youth in our community and around the world in addition to supporting our Team Members and their families in times of crisis and educational endeavors.
To fulfil this mission, we have worked closely with St. Joseph’s Candler Hospital on ‘Howard Hand in Hand,’ support program for families at St. Joseph’s Candler that provides support, education and guidance to children and teens with a family member facing a life threatening disease.
“I believe that Howard Hand in Hand will help meet the emotional and spiritual needs of any children and families facing extraordinary challenges,” said Dr. John Howard, Founder of Howard Family Dental. “Together we can all give life-changing support, encouragement and hope.”
After losing his own mother to cancer as a child, Dr. Howard desired to support children in a similar situation. Children of cancer patients are unsure what is happening within their family, why their family member is not feeling well or acting the same and who they can talk to about their family member’s illness. Dr. Lindsay Sammons, Director of Howard Family Dental Foundation, also experienced her mother’s fight against breast cancer as a young girl. Fortunately, her mother is in remission. Dr. Sammons knows firsthand how cancer can affect the entire family.
Nancy Johnson, executive director of the Lewis Cancer & Research Pavilion said, “Providing support to the children frees the parents dealing with their cancer to focus their energies on fighting this disease. The Howard Hand in Hand program helps to heal the whole family.”
If you would like to donate, please make check payable to ‘Howard Family Dental Foundation’ and mail to:
1020 Bryan Woods Loop, Suite 6, Savannah, GA 31410.

At Howard Family Dental, we have proudly offered a ‘Free Dental Day’ for the past 6 years. During Free Dental Day, our dentists and their teams provide one free service for both children and adults; they can choose between a cleaning, filling, or extraction. The event is first come, first serve.
Over the last few years, the event has grown and includes many community organizations. America’s Second Harvest of Coastal Georgia and Target Distribution brings food for those who are in need. Help a Child Smile brings a bus, fully equipped with dental chairs, hygiene supplies and even an x-ray machine and technician. Strickland’s Funeral Home, Auto Zone and Calvary Assembly of God generously allow parking and many local restaurants offer food donations for our volunteers.
The event is held at our Pooler location, 91 Brighton Woods Drive, every year the Friday before Thanksgiving. It is our way of giving thanks and appreciation to the community.
This past year we saw 223 patients; we completed 55 cleanings, 49 fillings, 106 extractions and saw 13 children. We are so grateful to all that volunteered their time, material and resources to make Howard Family Dental Free Dental Day a success. We are looking forward to next year’s event!
