Anna Clements

Hi! My name is Anna. I have worked for Dr. Newman since 2018 and I enjoy helping new and current patients with all that I can. If you need help with anything from scheduling and changing appointments, to pricing and billing, etc., please call. From our first point of contact I strive to make sure you feel welcome, at ease, and have all your questions answered when you need.

During my time off I like to travel, be outdoors, spend time with family and friends, experience new things, listen to music, dance, and have a good time! When I’m not on the go I enjoy relaxing at home and spending time with my two cats Henley and Nicks (named after Don Henley and Stevie Nicks – two of my favorite musicians).

Dental Hygienists

Caroline Scherer
Hello, my name is Caroline. My husband, Doug, and I moved to Roanoke from Florida in 2018. While in Florida, I completed a Dental Hygiene program in 1998 and have been in a private practice setting ever since.

Dr. Newman has a wonderful team, and I am very thankful to be a part of it. I enjoy helping patients achieve and maintain a healthy smile. I want each patient to feel informed, encouraged and cared for when they leave my dental chair.

When I am not working, you will find me driving around and shopping with my dog Zoey. I love to travel and explore new restaurants, but Covid 19 is taking that of my schedule for a while. Now, Doug and I do brunch at home, read and watch some Netflix.

Susan Oyler
Hi! My name is Susan. I have been a dental hygienist for over 34 years. By far the best part of my job is the patients! I love meeting new people and developing a rapport and friendship with patients. I like to treat people the way I would like to be treated. I will do everything I can to help keep our patients’ smiles healthy and beautiful! Our team here at Dr. Newman’s office go above and beyond to make sure each patient has a great dental experience!

I am married with three grown daughters. I enjoy shopping, crafting, watching movies, traveling and most of all spending time with family and friends!

Dental Assistants

Elly McConnel
Hi, I’m Elly. I grew up in La Plata, Maryland on a 500 acre farm. I became a dental assistant shortly after graduating from high school working for my family dentist. I have a passion for dentistry and over the years have continued to learn and expand my duties. I began working with Dr. Newman in 2015 (while employed in a group practice), then returned to work for her in this office in November 2017.

My goal is to help patients feel at ease, create trust and educate patients regarding dental treatment to help them to maintain a healthy smile.

I enjoy patio gardening and recently started refurbishing furniture. Most of my time revolves around my wonderful grown children: three sons (one daughter-in-law) and a daughter (son-in-law). However, my life has been largely enhanced when I became “Oma” to one very adorable grandson.

Supporting Member

Dr. Newman and her husband rescued Eva from the Blount County Animal Shelter in Tennessee as an adult dog. She has been a loyal companion for their family since 2013. Always up for an adventure, Eva loves walks with the family, camping and chasing squirrels and deer. Her other hobbies include napping by the fire or listening to Riley read stories. Update: Per popular patient request, Eva spent many Thursdays in the office. Unfortunately due to age and spatial sensitivity, she is no longer joining us on-site. However, she continues to support us from home!
