Meet the Team
Registered Dental Hygienist
I love meeting new people and building relationships with each of them. Our conversations bring us closer together and form a bond. They also give me insight into how I can best help the person take control of their oral health. I take X-rays and review a patient’s medical history. I also clean and polish teeth and apply fluoride. Much of my focus is on educating patients. When they learn why it’s important to keep their mouth healthy, they become invested in doing so.
I’m a native North Carolinian. I’m happily married and we have one furry child: a lab mix who loves to play. I enjoy walking, hiking, and whitewater rafting. I’m also interested in bee-keeping.
Dental Assistant II
I am happiest when assisting a patient who is very nervous, helping them overcome their fears. I also enjoy helping people who are embarrassed to smile and seeing them leave happy and smiling. I have been providing chairside assistance to Dr. Lockney for over 12 yrs. Acting as a second pair of hands for the doctor, I also make sure our patient is comfortable. At the end, I provide home care instructions and answer questions.
My husband Rob and I have been married for 30 years. We have two adult sons, Ryan and Jordan, and a daughter-in-law. We also have two dogs: Shelby is a Golden Retriever and Bailey is a Yorkie. I love to go antiquing, finding old furniture and treasures, and DIY projects.
Dental Assistant II
I enjoy helping people and my work allows me to do that all day. It’s fun to get to know our patients and learn about their lives. Everyone has interesting stories to tell and I like hearing them. I assist Dr. Lockney as he cares for patients, supporting him and keeping our patient updated on what we’re doing. I also sterilize our equipment and tools, support our hygiene team, and assist at the front desk when needed.
I have two incredible children, a son and daughter, who I love very much, and also two dogs. Spending time with them, along with family and friends, is a priority. I love going to the beach, too, and riding horses.
Office Manager and Dental Assistant II
I love developing relationships with our patients and giving people a reason to smile while we improve their oral health. I have been with Dr Lockney for 16 yrs and I wear many hats in our office. In the treatment area, I work with Dr. Lockney and patients both chairside and administrative during their visits. In our front office, I oversee the practice management and handle all insurance concerns. I also welcome new patients and help them through their first visits.
When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends. I love being outdoors and riding horses, too.
