I have always been afraid of going to the Dentist ever since I was a child. Drs. Rich & Lacy Gilbert really took the time to make me feel comfortable, keeping in mind my hesitations. I have never been to a practice that puts so much care into their patient's needs. I was absolutely amazed with the genuine friendliness of the staff as well as the cleanliness of the office. I couldn't believe that for my first time ever, I actually left with a smile on my face after leaving their office. For people like me who are afraid of going to the Dentist, I can assure you that Pelican Landing Dental will have the same effect on you. It is refreshing going into a practice that truly prides themselves on providing genuine quality and care for their patients. 5 stars for me is an understatement on my evaluation of this practice!

I had a fabulous experience with Dr. Lacy Gilbert. I initially came in very fearful and in discomfort and Dr. Gilbert did a great job putting me at ease and laying out a plan. I was a little hesitant about dental implants, but after hearing her explanation I felt much more at ease that she would walk me through every step of the process. And now I couldn't be happier with my implants and the ability to eat without fear of something falling apart in my mouth. My implants feel like real teeth! If I would have known it'd be this easy, I would have done it sooner. I can't say enough about how respectful they treated me and how gentle the whole process was. I would refer anyone to Dr. Gilbert without hesitation!

Today I had my teeth cleaned and I have to say it was the best cleaning I have ever experienced! The hygienist was very nice and addressed any concerns I had. I always love to go to Pelican Landing Dental to see all the friendly faces. I know that they have my health as their main concern when I am there. Thank you!

My first time visit was very thorough and involved much more that just looking at my teeth. I was very impressed with the professionalism of the staff, and the way treatment was explained. I would recommend my family and friends to this beautiful and friendly office. My cleaning was the best I've ever had!

I'm from out of town and my daughter cracked her tooth and they were able to get her in and out. I was very impressed of how inexpensive it was. The staff was very friendly.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
