Savannah Dentists: Pooler Pediatric Dentistry for infants, children & adolescents

Pooler Pediatric Dentistry dentists pediatric Savannah

Did you know that your child’s first dental visit should be by age one?

The office at Pooler Pediatric Dentistry  is specially designed with children in mind with video games and ceiling-mounted TVs and a friendly staff who enjoy working with younger patients! They even offer sedation for those children that are too young or nervous to otherwise complete treatment.

Let Pooler Pediatric Dentistry show your child how fun a trip to the dentist can be!

Dr. Carla G. Stappenbeck is a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist with degrees from Harvard University and the University of Maryland and a certificate from Cincinnati Children’s Hospital. She is excited to be serving Chatham and the surrounding counties.

Pooler Pediatric Dentistry
120 Towne Center Drive, Suite 500
Pooler, GA 31322
912-376-9296

Why choose a pediatric dentist versus a general dentist who treats children?

As a pediatric dentist, Dr. Carla has an extra two years of specialized training (residency) after dental school and is dedicated to the oral health of children from infancy through the teenage years, including those with special health care needs. As a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist, she has voluntarily undergone vigorous written and oral exams, which demonstrate specialized knowledge and skill. In order to maintain her certification, she must complete yearly continuing education requirements to stay up-to-date with developments in both technology and patient care.

Dr. Carla is fluent in both English and Spanish (Se Habla Español).
