Meet Dr. Stackhouse

Dr. Stackhouse

Bela Family Dentistry welcomes Dr. Anesa Stackhouse.  Born and raised in the charming town of Dillon, South Carolina, Dr Stackhouse developed a strong sense of community and a passion for helping others early on. Attending Dillon High School laid the foundation for her academic journey, setting the stage for what would become a fulfilling career in dentistry.

While Dillon was home, summers meant adventures in Florence, where she forged deep connections with family. Those warm summers spent in Florence left an indelible mark on her heart, shaping her desire to give back to the communities that played such pivotal roles in her upbringing.

Dr. Stackhouse’s educational path led her to the University of South Carolina in Spartanburg, where she pursued a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology. It was during this time that her passion for dentistry truly blossomed. Inspired by the dedicated work of Dr. Duncan Shirley, whom she had the privilege of shadowing, Dr. Stackhouse discovered a profound calling to serve others through dentistry.

After earning her undergraduate degree, she furthered her education at the prestigious Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston, where she earned her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree. Following this, she embarked on a Non-Categorical Oral Surgery Internship at Meharry Medical College in Nashville, Tennessee, honing her skills and expanding her expertise in oral healthcare.

Dr. Stackhouse’s journey in dentistry has been fueled by a desire to make a tangible difference in people’s lives. Volunteering alongside Dr. Duncan at the Miracle Hill Missionary Free Dental Clinic opened her eyes to the transformative power of compassionate care. Dr. Stackhouse states, “It was there that I realized the profound impact dentistry could have on individuals from all walks of life, inspiring me to blend my love for the arts with a dedication to precision in service of others.”

Returning to the familiar embrace of Florence to practice dentistry has been a deeply rewarding experience. Serving a community that holds such personal significance to her allows Dr. Stackhouse to forge genuine connections and foster meaningful relationships. She is committed to educating patients about the integral link between oral health and overall well-being, while empowering them to achieve vibrant smiles and optimal health.

Beyond the dental office, Dr. Stackhouse is a passionate explorer, embarking on road trips across the country and venturing into the breathtaking beauty of destinations like the Grand Canyon. Closer to home, she enjoys indulging in culinary delights at local eateries and sharing laughter with friends and family over boardgames.

Dr. Stackhouse states, “Joining Bela Family Dentistry has been a natural fit for me, as their commitment to patient-centric care aligns seamlessly with my own values. Here, I have found a supportive environment that fosters growth and innovation, allowing me to stay at the forefront of dental advancements while delivering exceptional care tailored to everyone’s needs. With a focus on compassion and the integration of cutting-edge techniques and technology, I strive to provide my patients with unparalleled dental experiences that promote lasting oral health and radiant smiles. My expertise encompasses a range of specialties, including restorative implants, temporomandibular joint therapy, dental-alveolar surgery, root canal therapy, crown and bridge, and dental prosthetics. As I continue this journey, I am deeply grateful for the opportunity to serve the wonderful communities of Dillon and Florence, where my roots run deep and my passion for dentistry continues to flourish.  Dr. Shelly’s partnership and expertise is just a bonus.”

Dr. Elizabeth Shelly states, “We’re thrilled to have Dr. Stackhouse join our Bela of Florence team. Her addition enables us to broaden our services and enhance the level of care we offer to our patients.  The team looks forward to working with her.”
