Dr. Newman’s family is from Clovis, and her parents own a baby food manufacturing plant in Sanger – where her brother, sister, and husband all work!
Before returning home to Clovis, Dr. Newman has lived all over the country. She attended Duke University, where she was the Chair of the Honor Council. During her breaks, she was a surgical assistant for an oral surgeon, where she discovered an intense interest in dentistry. It combined two of her favorite things – taking care of people and biology. After her time in North Carolina, she attended the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine, from which she graduated with honors. She spent a year in a general practice residency at the VA Hospital in Pittsburgh, which is where her love for root canals began!
Dr. Newman went on to complete her Endodontics residency at the University of Pittsburgh. During her time there, she continued to treat patients and teach residents at the VA Hospital, as well as complete cutting-edge research, which she presented twice to the American Association of Endodontists.
After her residency, she and her husband moved to Buffalo, New York, where she practiced for close to a decade before meeting Dr. Jett. It was clear to Dr. Jett right away that Dr. Newman would be a perfect fit for APEX, with her professional experience and California roots. It didn’t take much for Dr. Jett to convince Dr. Newman to trade snowy winters for Fresno sunshine!
Dr. Newman is an extremely talented and experienced clinician. She strives to treat her patients with both precision and a friendly attitude, and she loves to share her love for root canals with others. She’s known for being caring, talkative, and having a true passion for her work. She is extremely accommodating and will always go out her way to help a patient in pain.
Outside of the office, Dr. Newman loves cooking, running, and spending time with her husband and their two little boys. She’s currently becoming an amazing LEGO builder and loves spending time outside.
