Fayetteville native Geri Locklear has been a member of the Sandhills family since 2007. As a Surgical Assistant, she’s proud to be part of an incredible group of dental professionals who share the same goal of providing expert care in a friendly, patient-centered environment.
For Geri, every day is an opportunity to enhance her skills and make connections with her patients. Geri is truly a people person. In fact, she enjoys the interaction so much she has been known to greet a patient by telling them, “You are why I came to work today!”
One of Geri’s best qualities is her ability to relate to and empathize with her patients, and she strives to make every visit to our office feel like visiting with friends. Whether you’re a parent who needs reassurance about a child’s surgery or a senior who needs additional explanation about a procedure, she takes the time to listen, explain, encourage, or simply hold a hand.
Geri has been married to her husband for over 30 years, and they have two adult children, Charity and David. In her free time, Geri loves hiking trails in search of waterfalls, going to the beach, finding lighthouses to explore, and spending time with her extended family. A resident of the Hope Mills area, she also volunteers with young children at her church.
