William L. Hand III, DDS PA
Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry for Adults
218 B South Front Street
Downtown New Bern, NC 28560
Our office is dedicated to providing high quality, state-of-the-art dental care in a relaxing and comfortable environment.
Dr. Hand has been practicing dentistry in New Bern since 1981, and is a 3rd generation New Bern dentist. Our staff is exceptionally experienced and dedicated to meeting our patients' needs in the most comfortable manner possible.
For your health and quality of life, a wide range of dental services are provided, with emphasis on cosmetic and restorative care. By using the latest techniques and materials, and teaming with superb local specialists for complex needs, we provide care to the area equal to the best of any city in the state.
Our focus is providing adult dental care, but we gladly see children of current patients.
We are accepting new patients.
Most of our new patients are referred by someone who is already a patient, and not from billboards, yellow page ads or newspaper ads. This provides us with the ultimate motivation for treating you well and establishing a beneficial long term relationship. The following button will take you to a review site. We have absolutely no control over the survey results or what people write. So what you read is real, from our actual patients. We are quite proud of the many positive comments we receive.
Bear Town Bears
Say "hello" to Dr. Paw on your next visit to our office. Our bear's name is a word play on "Dr. Hand", and was suggested by one of our patients. He has the distinction of being the only smiling bear in the Bear Town Bears project, and is holding a toothbrush, wearing a dental mask, and shows instruments and a latex glove in his coat pockets.
The Bear Town Bears public art project is a cooperative effort with local artists in which life-sized, hand-painted bears have been placed throughout New Bern. (Special thanks is given to Molly Knazek for her artistry and creativity.) The bear is the historic symbol of New Bern, and the project was part of the town's 300th anniversary celbration.
Dr. Paw is placed in recognition of three generations of Hand family dentists in downtown New Bern, and graces the entrance to the office building's parking area.
About this web site...
This web site, which I personally created and maintain, is one of my office's many efforts at providing useful and practical information. If you are already a patient, thank you for your support, and your suggestions. Being your dentist is a privilege. If you are looking for a dentist, I hope you will consider my office.
