Dr. Wilson grew up in Ashland, VA., the oldest of five siblings. She received her BS in Biology from William & Mary, and her Doctor of Dental Surgery from Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry in Richmond.  While a dental student, she was selected for membership in Omicron Kappa Upsilon, the national dental honor society.  Recognized for her efforts in the Mission of Mercy (MOM) Projects, Dr. Wilson is dedicated to supporting local communities.  In her spare time, she enjoys hiking, rock climbing, reading, and photography.

Dr. Wilson believes that everyone deserves a smile to be proud of!  She is committed to providing excellent care in a comfortable environment, and it is very important to her that every patient feel at home.  With her on the team, we are now able to offer more services to our patients that were previously referred out.

Dr. Wilson is a member of the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, the Virginia Dental Association, the American Association of Women Dentists, and the Piedmont Dental Society.  She is very excited to be a part of the Blue Ridge Dental Group team and looks forward to serving the Roanoke and Vinton communities.

Dr. Neal grew up in Danville, Virginia and moved to Richmond, Virginia to complete undergrad and dental school at Virginia Commonwealth University.  She relocated to Ohio in 2012 to complete a one year general practice residency at Akron City Hospital and has been in private practice since returning to the area.

Dr. Neal thoroughly enjoys all aspects of general dentistry, but mostly she looks forward to building relationships.  “Roanoke, Virginia has been my home for almost two years now, and I love it here.  I enjoy hikes on the Blue Ridge Parkway, taking my dogs Ollie and Bentley to the dog park, cooking, watching Redbox movies, spending time with friends, and my fiancé James, as much as possible.  I’m excited to be a part of the Blue Ridge Dental Group and working with my good friend Dr. Wilson.
