Learn Who We Are

  • Meghan Stenvall

    The daughter of a dentist, Dr. Meghan Stenvall knows that the dental office is no one's favorite destination.  That's why, as her patient, you will most likely find yourself spending more time asking questions and exploring possible options rather than in the 'say ahh' position.  Always striving to deliver high quality, personalized service and to make coming to the dentist easy and comfortable for patients, Dr. Stenvall is enthusiastic about continuing education and has taken many courses in all aspects of clinical dentistry, including dental implants, bone grafting and orthodontics.  ''I treat all of my patients as if they are family members, and I want to show people that coming to the dentist doesn't have to be a bad experience.'' Through her gift of communication and listening, Dr. Stenvall helps put patients at ease and loves seeing the look in a patient's eye when they realize something isn't as difficult as they thought it was going to be. 

    Although a New Jersey native, Dr. Stenvall grew to love North Carolina during her undergraduate years at Wake Forest University.  She then received her doctor of dental medicine (DMD) degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine before completing a one year general practice residency at a busy hospital in Brooklyn, NY.  She practiced dentistry with her father in New Jersey before his retirement and also practiced in Williamsburg, Virginia for four years.  Dr. Stenvall was lured to North Carolina to surround herself with family and friends who have moved to the Charlotte area over the years. She is excited to call North Carolina her new home.

    In her free time, Dr. Stenvall loves spending time with friends and family, including her niece and nephews who live in Matthews.  She also can be found playing tennis, playing the piano, or curling up with a good book with her two cats.

  • Kristin
    Office Manager

    A Charlotte native, Kristin has spent her entire dental career working with Dr. Pourlos before his retirement in 2018.  She has been a dental hygienist for 23 years and now has stepped into the role of office manager.  Kristin and her husband, Randy, have two daughters, Emma and Elena, and two dogs, Bo and Tebow.  Outside of work, Kristin enjoys spending time with her family, working with preschool children at her church, being involved with church activities, and somehow still finds time and energy to go to 4M Fitness. 

  • Tamara

    Originally from the Shenandoah Valley area of Virginia, Tamara moved to the Fort Mill area in 2016.  She worked in the dental field for ten years before she and her husband, Kirk, started a family.  Six children, a son in law, a grandson, and two cats later, Tamara worked for Dr. Pourlos for two and a half years before his retirement.  When she is not at work, Tamara enjoys watching her kids play sports, making crafts and listening to music.

  • Lisa
    Dental Hygienist

    You'll always be welcomed by Lisa's smile when you come into our office for your cleanings.  She has been a dental hygienist for over 20 years and worked with Dr. Pourlos for 10 of those years before he retired.  When not cleaning teeth, Lisa enjoys spending time with her husband, Greg, her son, Harrison, her daughter and son in law, Emily and Dale, and her dog, Paisley.  She and her family enjoy traveling, going to the beach and boating.  When football season comes, you can catch her and her husband hosting 60-100 people for tailgates at every home Panthers game.  Go Panthers!

  • Brenda
    Dental Assistant

    With 30 years of experience as a dental assistant, Brenda has a natural gift of making patients feel at ease when they're in the dental chair.  She has become a familiar face around the office as she assisted Dr. Pourlos for 20 years before he retired.  Outside of the office, Brenda enjoys spending time with her husband, Russ, her daughter, Zakaria, and her fur babies (2 dogs, 1 cat and a grandpup).  You can also find her gardening or visiting her family and grandkids in Florida.
