Special thanks is given to Molly Knazek for her artistry and creativity for Dr. Paw. which graces the entrance to Dr. Hand's office building. His name is a word play on "Dr. Hand". 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.
