Dr. McRoberts enjoys spending time with his wife, Kelly and their children, AJ and Peyton.

He is active in his church, just rotating off a deacon rotation. He has been serving on the finance committee, youth committee, and serves as one of the middle school teachers on Sundays. He and his wife love the South Carolina State Dance- the shag, and enjoy cutting the rug as a member in the Oconee Assembly.

Feel free to contact the office to schedule one for your school. He has supported local YMCA teams, local Rec team sports, Blue Ridge Golf programs, Middle and High School teams from surrounding schools, knowing that these participants are tomorrow’s leaders. He also enjoys supporting Collins Family Ministries and the Boy Scouts (Dr. Mac is an Eagle Scout!)
Dr. McRoberts is a huge Clemson supporter and attends many of the different sporting events with his family and friends. You will always see him wearing orange on Thursdays at the office to show his Tiger Pride. He has been the official Clemson Tiger Dentist for the last several years, helping out with students, trainers, coaches, etc. when the need arises.

He and his team stay above and beyond that which is required for continuing education in order to provide their patients with the most up-to-date care in general dentistry. Dr. McRoberts looks forward to working with you to achieve the smile and oral health you desire in the most friendly and conservative way possible. By the way, he loves a good joke when you’re visiting.
Dr. Emily Martin Ewoldt, D.M.D

Emily graduated from Clemson University and the Calhoun Honors College with a Bachelor of Science degree in Public Health Science. There, she was president of Mortar Board Honor Society, Executive Vice President of her sorority, Alpha Delta Pi, and was actively involved in student government initiatives and Blue Key Honor Society. Emily interned with Clemson Family Dentistry during her senior year of college, and it was because of Dr. McRoberts, Dr. Gustafson, and the team at CFD that she fell in love with dentistry.
Emily completed her Doctor of Dental Medicine (DMD) degree at the Medical University of South Carolina. She is an avid supporter of organized dentistry and served as President of the American Student Dental Association during dental school, the student governing body of the College of Dental Medicine. Through this, she was honored as the 2016 District 4 Delegate of the Year and Excellence in Leadership in 2017. Both of these distinctions honor one student among the over 500 dental students in our region for leadership and dedication to dentistry.
In dental school, Emily was an active member of the Academy of General Dentistry, American Association of Women Dentists, Delta Sigma Delta Dental Fraternity, and the American Academy of Public Health Dentistry. Staying current on new dental trends and techniques is critical, and Emily has attended Continuing Education courses in Chicago, Los Angeles, Orlando, and various courses across South Carolina. In addition, she has spent several weeks in Ecuador and Peru serving on dental mission trips through a ministry at MUSC called Dental Community Fellowship.
Emily married her husband, Nathan, in June of 2020. They, along with Emily's family, reside in Clemson, and her three siblings have either graduated from or are currently attending Clemson University. She is active in the Rotary Club of Clemson, the Tri-County Dental Society, South Carolina Dental Association, American Dental Association, and Academy of General Dentistry. In her free time, Emily and her family like to attend any and all Clemson sporting events, take their dogs to the lake, ad go hiking - anything outdoors! Having lived in Charleston for 4 years, she enjoys trying new foods and restaurants - a self-proclaimed taste tester if you will!
Emily sincerely believes that there is something intangible about Clemson - the people, the landscape, the community. It is the cornerstone of who she is, and she is excited to give back to the place that raised her. She is committed to providing quality, personalized care with kindness, sincerity, and trust.
