Meet The Doctors


Dr. Cartillar

Dr. Djuana Cartillar grew up in Bald Knob, Arkansas. She attended Lyon's College in Batesville, then attended and graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Dentistry in 1993. She practiced general/family dentistry for nine years in Forrest City before her dream of becoming a pediatric dentist came into fruition. Dr. Cartillar left the general dental field in 2002 to serve as a pediatric dental resident for 24 months at the University of Tennessee. During residency she trained at LeBonnher Children's Hospital, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, Crittenden Memorial Hospital, and the Arlington Developmental Facility. When she graduated in 2004, she worked in Jonesboro as a pediatric dentist for two years. In 2004, she finally realized her dream of opening Pediatric Dentistry of Eastern Arkansas in Forrest City. Since this time, she has opened an additional clinic in West Memphis to better serve the children of Eastern Arkansas.

Dr. Cartillar is a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry Association, Southwestern Society of Pediatric Dentistry, American Dental Association, Arkansas State Dental Association. She is on staff at St. Bernard's Hospital in Jonesboro and the Forrest City Medical Hospital.

Dr. Cartillar is married with two children, Jayme and Tori, who are very active in church and sports. She enjoys watching her son, Jayme, compete in baseball and his many other sporting interests, and she enjoys watching her daughter, Tori, compete on her horse during barrel races. Dr. Cartillar's other interest include working with the children in her church, gardening, cooking, photography, and horseback riding. Dr. Cartillar adds her personal touch of beauty and creativity, whatever the activity, from making a two layered coconut cake to digitally integrating her photographs to make collages and unique photo albums.
