BRIGHT CHANGES - Retirement of Dr. Douglas Fry + Spotlight on Dr. Rob Point & Dr. Lise Bradley


After over 5 decades of dental service, Dr. Douglas Fry, one of Wilmingtonโ€™s original pediatric dentists, is embarking on a new chapter - his retirement. The entire community has benefited from Dr. Fryโ€™s devotion to the families of this region and caring for the smiles of their children. Sunshine Childrenโ€™s Dentistry was established by Dr. Fry, and over the years it has grown into one of the most respected pediatric dentistries of New Hanover County. Sunshine Childrenโ€™s Dentistry has an incredible Sunshine Team, including our office staff, dental assistants, and spectacular dentists Dr. Lise Bradley and Dr. Robert Point.

Playfully referred to as โ€œDr. French Fryโ€ by our young patients, Dr. Douglas Fry practiced dentistry for over 50 years, with over 30 years in pediatric dentistry, caring for all types of dental needs. After several years of work in general dentistry, Dr. Fry discovered that his real interest was in caring for children. Dr. Fry believes that a child's smile could be their greatest social asset. Each of us will cherish the passion and dedication of Dr. Fry and all he has done for the families of the Wilmington region. It is with a joy filled heart that we congratulate Dr. Fry and wish him the very best during his retirement. Please join us in wishing Dr. Fry a happy retirement!


Sunshine Childrenโ€™s Dentistry will continue to be in great hands! Dr. Robert Point will be carrying out Dr. Fryโ€™s legacy of providing the best dental care for children. Each of our dentists have always believed that every child is deserving of uncompromised quality care, providing a gentle and compassionate approach, and being a health advocate for the patients of Sunshine Children's Dentistry. It is our goal to make pediatric dental care FUN, help children develop healthy smiles, create positive dental experiences, and continue to meet the increasing demand in our region with excellence. From the bottom of our hearts, we say THANK YOU for putting your trust in Sunshine Childrenโ€™s Dentistry. We are dedicated to you, and it is our honor to serve your family!


Dr. Robert Point, lovingly referred to as โ€œDr. Robโ€ by our young patients, is passionate about serving the patients at Sunshine Childrenโ€™s Dentistry. Dr. Robโ€™s favorite part of working at this office is the strong team dynamic and the sense of pride the team shares in giving quality dental care in a fun setting to amazing patients. As a father to two young children, he provides the same gentle care for each patient as he would towards his own little ones.

Even at a young age, Dr. Rob knew he wanted to study medicine and felt called to dentistry. Dr. Rob received his DDS from West Virginia University School of Dental Medicine (Morgantown, WV) and attended his pediatric dentistry residency at University of Toledo Medical Center (Toledo, OH). He is a member of the ADA (American Dental Association) and member of the NC Dental Society. He provides the full scope of pediatric dental services at Sunshine Childrenโ€™s Dentistry, and he treats under general anesthesia at New Hanover Regional Medical Center hospital.

Dr. Rob was born and raised in Wilmington, NC and is excited to finally have come full circle to return to his hometown. He loves spending time with his wife, Ashley, and their 2 daughters. When not at work, Dr. Rob enjoys doing anything outdoors and on the water including fishing, sailing, kite boarding, and kayaking.


Passionate about serving children and giving them bright healthy smiles, Dr. Lise Bradley is a wonderful member of the Sunshine Team. With decades of experience, she is able to provide all types of routine pediatric dental care for our patients.

During her youth, Dr. Bradley had a dream of practicing as a pediatric dentist. She is originally from Albany, NY. She attended dental school at the University of Missouri Kansas City. Currently, the beautiful city of Wilmington, NC has been home for her for the last decade.

Dr. Bradley has two adult children. Her son is a chef in Wilmington, NC. Her daughter works in finance in Denver, CO. During her spare time, Dr. Bradley serves on the Board of the Wilmington Arboretum. She enjoys gardening, cooking, swimming, and biking. Dr. Bradley is excited to serve you and your family at Sunshine Children's Dentistry.
