The Semtner Dental Team:
Hello, I’m Marcella. I’ve been in Roanoke for about 6 years. I began my dental career while serving in the US Army. When I am not assisting you to achieve your perfect smiles, I can be found reading a book or spreading Autism Awareness. I look forward to meeting you!
I graduated Dental Hygiene School from the University of Pittsburgh in 2004. As part of my education, I am also licensed to administer local anesthesia. I have been with the team since 2011. Working at Semtner Dental is wonderful and I enjoy getting to know all the patients and educating everyone about dental health.
I currently reside in Roanoke, VA with my husband Dan and our two small children, Alexandra and Noah. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, boating, and traveling to Pittsburgh. I also have a great passion for teaching group exercise classes at the YMCA!

My name is Sandy and I am a certified Dental Assistant. I went to school at VWCC for their Dental Assisting Program. I have worked in Dentistry for 39 years. Working with children that are afraid is my passion, because I was one. I am married to Stephen and we have 3 daughters and 3 grandsons that are my love. I also love to garden in my spare time.
I started my dental career as a dental assistant (14 years) after attending Old Dominion University in Norfolk,Virginia. From there, I assumed the responsibilities of Office Manager, which allows me to share my love of dentistry and what it can do to improve the quality of a person’s life. I truly enjoy interacting with patients and helping them understand their treatment.When I am not working, I enjoy traveling to Guam to see my daughter, son-in-law and 4 grandchildren. I also enjoy spending time with my husband at home or in the mountains of East Tennessee.
I am Fay Yopp and I was born in Roanoke and have lived here all my life. I have been married 45 years, we have two daughters, four grandchildren and one great-grandchild. I have been in dentistry for over 30 years as a dental assistant and now work as the manager of the Hershberger location.
I am Mary May and I am from Front Royal, Virginia; although, I have lived in Roanoke for 40 plus years. I call Roanoke my home. I joined Semtner Dental in 2013 and brought many years of dedicated dental experience. When I am not working, I enjoy time with my family, which includes two grand children and two pet cats named Molly and Tiger. On weekends, my husband and I enjoy traveling whenever possible.
