Dear Dr. Bland and Staff:

I just wanted to take a moment to say "thank you" for your professionalism and kindness during the past year. As I'd grown older I began to dread "the dentist" more and more each year. When I heard that you offered sedation dentistry, I thought it would be worth a try. What I never expected was that you and your staff would be so understanding of my fears. Not only was I able to resume routine dental care, you were also able to eliminate all of my old metal fillings and repair the misalignment and discoloration I've had for over 30 years.

Less than a week after my last visit I attended my brother's wedding. In every photo I'm smiling... and it is a great smile! Thank you so much again.

Sincerely

- R.G.

For anyone who desires a dental office where treatment of a patient is given in a gentle warm environment, this is your dentist.

I am the patient who went years without treatment because of fear and also wanting superior skills in my health professional. I had high standards and wanted the best even if it meant traveling across county.

What a blessing it was to find Dr. Bland in Wilmington. I no longer fear going to the dentist and encourage my family to experience this pain free experience. Not only is the pain gone but you leave feeling like a new person. My energy level is higher and what I felt like was a condition "just to live with" is gone. It is amazing. This is a great group and you will never go back to less.

Dear Dr. Bland,

Thank you for the opportunity to contribute my experiences to your website. Feel free to use any part of this letter that you feel appropriate.

I contacted your office nearly two years ago because I was fairly new to Wilmington and had a dental emergency (lost a crown). I was very familiar with your name because my mother was a patient of your grandfather, and then your father, all of her life. You are the third generation of Dr. Blands to care for her and she wouldn't go anywhere else.

Probably due to my past experiences with numerous dental procedures in the past, I delay visits to the dentist until something hurts. As a child, I had numerous extractions, fillings, braces, and surgical wisdom tooth removal. As an adult, I have been known to go 5 years without visiting a dentist. Prior to visiting you, I began a series of 4 appointments in New Bern for scaling and stopped after 3. It was not just the discomfort; it was more the anxiety leading up to and during the procedures.

I went to the appointment scared to death. The particular crown I lost was on a tooth which had already had 2 root canals and a root extraction over the previous 2 years. The procedures were uncomfortable and the recovery painful. I suspected that the tooth would have to come out and you confirmed that. You calmly explained to me what the options were and allowed me to decide what would be done. You explained the sedation option and I chose to try it. I was amazed what a difference it made. I was able to go to the office without anxiety and go home without memory of anything unpleasant. Discomfort was well controlled during the recovery period and I was impressed to receive a call from your office to check on me later in the day.

The more beneficial part of the sedation technique, for me, was that it allowed me to have long overdue dental work without fear. I have gone through filling replacements and other procedures that have greatly improved the appearance of my teeth and restored my gum and teeth health. You carefully chose specialists, when I had to be referred, who also used sedation for their procedures and I appreciated that.

Though I had to cancel my last appointment due to our house fire, I will reschedule and be back - without being afraid.

Sincerely,

Cathy Hargett
