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
Email: frontdesk@poolerpd.com

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).

Savannah Daytrips: Find handmade glass globes on Jekyll Island during Jan., Feb. 2017

Thursday, January 12th, 2017

Island Treasures Jekyll Island 2017 Daytrips Savannah Every year, Jekyll Island commissions a group of highly skilled artisans from across the U.S. to create exquisite, handworked glass globes for Jekyll’s annual Island Treasures event.

(Jekyll Island is an easy, roughly 90-minute drive down I-95 from Savannah. See our list of things to do with kids on on Jekyll Island here. )

The glass floats are part of a hide-and-seek style game played on Jekyll Island throughout January and February 2017. Each day, volunteers called Beach Buddies hide glass floats around the island for lucky guests to find and, yes, get this, keep.

Each float is marked with a special tag and instructions for treasure finders to register their Island Treasures at the Jekyll Island Guest Information Center where they will receive a certificate of authenticity and artist biography for their one-of-a-kind float. The Center is open Monday-Saturday, 9AM – 6PM and Sunday 10AM-5PM.

More are out there, and more are placed ever day through February. Overall, 250 floats will have been placed for lucky float finders. Island Treasures runs  through Feb. 28, 2017.

At the Beach Village on Jekyll Is. on Jan. 21 & 28, and Feb. 4 & 25, three extra floats will be hidden in the Beach Village.
