Camden Oral Surgery

Dr. Diane Pennington founded Camden Oral Surgery in St. Marys, Georgia in 2006, after relocating from Omaha, Nebraska. “We loved the coastal region and had discovered there was no oral surgeon in Camden County,” says Dr. Pennington, who holds both a doctor of dentistry degree and a medical degree. “There was a real need for my specialty here.”

Camden Oral Surgery provides dental implants, bone grafting, tooth extractions, and wisdom tooth removal, as well as the treatment of oral pathology and facial trauma. Seven additional staff members, including four surgical assistants, work with Dr. Pennington. Dr. Pennington’s anesthesia permit and extensive training allows her to perform procedures under IV sedation and general anesthesia. The practice treats both adult and pediatric patients.

Dr. Pennington is originally from Warner Robins, Georgia. She attended undergraduate school at Emory University and graduated from the Medical College of Georgia School of Dentistry. Dr. Pennington served in the United States Air Force Dental Squadron for three years, then attended the University of Nebraska to obtain her medical degree and complete her residency. Dr. Pennington, a Board Certified Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon, is a fellow of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons. Camden Oral Surgery is open Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 8:00 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., and on Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. For more information, call (912) 673-6545 or visit
