Erica Locke D.M.D. is a general dentist treating an array of patients of all ages at Salem Family Dental Clinic. No case is too complex to treat. She is qualified in all aspects of dentistry and especially skillful with extractions, dentures and cosmetic dentistry.
Dr. Locke earned her DMD degree from Boston University’s Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine in 2010. She has practiced dentistry in many different settings, from private practice to mobile dentistry, even in state prison. But by far, working at North Shore Community Health Center in Salem has been the most rewarding. She loves her patients at the health center because they challenge her. They challenge her not only in dentistry but also in improving her Spanish conversation skills.
While Dr. Locke finds it difficult to pin down one experience that is most rewarding, there is a recent visit that stands out. While witnessing Dr. Locke deliver a denture to a patient, an interpreter said to Dr. Locke “Wow you really get to know your patients. I’ve never seen a dentist pay attention to her patients so well.” This is true, Dr. Locke believes that every patient should be treated with the utmost care and respect.
