Donna Rea
Surgical Assistant

Donna Rea joined Sandhills Oral Surgery & Implant Dentistry as a Surgical Assistant in 2010 and has over 23 years of experience working in the field of Oral Surgery. One of the things she loves most about her work is the fact that she is constantly collaborating with her colleagues and learning new techniques and skills to help improve the lives of her patients.

For Donna, it’s all about relationships and ensuring that patients feel comfortable, relaxed, and informed. She always takes the time to fully explain procedures and to help patients who might be experiencing anxiety, guiding them with understanding and compassion. She wants every patient to know that they are in good hands.

Education and teaching are important to Donna. She routinely participates in dental seminars, has been a certified CPR instructor for over 15 years (teaching at Sandhills Community College), and is also trained in digital and intraoral radiography.

Originally from New York, Donna currently lives in Raeford, NC. She is married and enjoys spending time with her daughter, stepson, three grandchildren, two German Shepherds, and cat. In her down time, you can find her crafting, cooking, horseback riding, or target shooting. She always looks forward to her family’s annual trip to Florida and traveling to the beautiful beaches and mountains of North Carolina.
