Ethical, Honest, Patient-Centered Dentistry
Dentistry — helping people achieve oral health and lead happier lives — is my passion. I think I truly embody what it means to be a general dentist: I love working with everyone, from a toddler at the first visit to a great-grandparent, and with every person in between. It is immensely fulfilling to see families grow and change over the years, to learn their stories and share in their lives.
I have practiced dentistry since 2009. As a child, I loved smiles and have always been drawn to opportunities to help others. Dentistry felt like the most natural path, as it allows me to build connections, serve people, and help each lead a healthier, more enjoyable life.
As a dentist, I know what I do can change a person’s life. When I’m restoring function, boosting a smile, saving a tooth, or alleviating pain, I know the person is going to feel better and be healthier as a result of the procedure.
I also know that some people have a genuine fear of visiting the dentist. I take all the time needed to learn a person’s concerns and work to gain their trust. Never judging and always listening, I strive to make sure each patient is comfortable, informed, and knows they have my full attention throughout their visit.
The Neely Dental Team
Our team is the absolute best. The majority of them have been with the practice for longer than I have been practicing! They know our patients very well and truly guide Dr. Neely and me to help serve them better.
All of us, doctors and staff, are humble listeners. To us, dentistry is a matter of healthcare and wellness, which should be at the core of every dental practice. We are present to offer the best care possible while respecting what each person desires.

The world of dentistry is ever evolving, and it is imperative that I stay current with the latest research and best ways to deliver care. I want our patients to know the dental care we provide has promising results, based on advanced research, technology, and technique.
My pursuit of continuing education keeps me at the forefront of new options and approaches to dentistry. In addition to taking courses, I regularly attend meetings, seminars, and lectures. I also avidly read the latest refereed journals, to stay on top of research discussions and findings.

Beyond the Practice
Originally from Southern California, I graduated from high school in Springboro. Now my family calls Beavercreek home.
When I’m not seeing patients, I’m almost always with my husband Dave, who’s an engineer at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, and our three adorable children. I am making the most of time with the children while they’re young and carefree — and yes, they keep us on our toes! We love everything Disney and are outside, enjoying the world, as much as possible.
Our family is rounded out by Toby, our incredibly smart Welsh Corgi, who has been with Dave and me since we were students. Toby has been very tolerant of our growing family and likes joining us on adventures.
