Sarah Parker

Sarah Parker, a Lumberton native, says that she always had such a pleasant experience when she went to the dentist office as a young girl. She just knew that she wanted to be part of a team in a dental office that would allow her to provide others with the same pleasant experience.

As a Certified Dental Assistant attending school at Fayetteville Technical Community College, she heard about amazing things happening at Sandhills Oral Surgery and knew right away that she wanted to join the Sandhills team. Sarah joined the practice in 2019 and just loves being able to work with a great team of dental professionals.

Her favorite part of her day is interacting with the patients and building relationships with them so that they enjoy coming into the office. She wants to them to know that they are not just patient but that they are family.

When Sarah is not helping to transform the smiles of her patients, she enjoys spending time with her two children, Kaitlyn and Evan, biking, reading, and traveling.
