Meet Dr. Stephanie Eissens
Dr. Stephanie Eissens was born and raised in North Carolina in the small eastern town of Chadbourn. Following graduation from West Columbus High School in 1998, she continued to the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to complete her undergraduate studies. In 2002, she earned her bachelor’s degree in Chemistry.
During Dr. Eissens’ time at UNC, she had the opportunity to participate with Medical Missions International on a mission trip to the Dominican Republic. This life-changing experience afforded her the opportunity to assist on medical and dental surgeries and fostered her desire to be a health care professional. Also, during this time her older brother, Dr. Jeremiah Eissens, had been accepted to dental school at UNC and introduced her to the field of dentistry.
Dr. Eissens loved the idea of being able to provide care in a field that not only impacts a patient’s health, but also their self confidence and daily life. She was accepted to the UNC School of Dentistry in the fall of 2003 and graduated with honors with her Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree in 2007.
