Notice to Patients

Special Announcement – Dr. Panda is going on maternity leave!

If you have been in the office lately it’s nothing but obvious I am expecting a baby fairly soon. My due date is July 27th, 2023. I am hoping to work up until July 27th, 2023. I plan on taking 6 weeks maternity leave. I do not expect to have any problem returning to my current patient load come September.

Perhaps a little late for this “announcement” but we did want to help you get to know Dr. Gear and Dr. Eyoma a little better before I step away for a couple weeks. Dr. Eyoma and I were classmates at the University of Maryland School of Dentistry and she is a CDC trained clinical associate professor of pre- doctoral studies focusing on dental public health services at the University of Maryland School of

Dr. Gear and I were co-residents at East Carolina’s Vidant Hospital specializing in Emergency/ Hospital dentistry. Both Drs are wonderful practitioners, so please help us welcome them with open arms! I have complete faith that they will care for all of my patients to the same standard as I do. They will take very good care of you.

The office will be seeing patients Mondays through Thursdays. I will be available to see patients on Thursdays after August 17 th , 2023 as needed. If you have any particular concerns that require my personal attention, please talk with one of our team members. Whether it be an assistant, hygienist, or front desk team, they will inform me of your concern. I will do my best to respond in a timely fashion or
my team will get you scheduled accordingly. All other general concerns will be forwarded onto Drs. Gear and Eyoma.

Thank you in advance for allowing me to take this time away from the office so that I can physically recover and care for our newest addition.

Kindest Regards,
Dr. Isata Panda DDS
