our patients say

Highly recommend Dr. Spaniel and Summerwood Dental!  I was a patient at the former dental practice of several members of the staff and followed them here to Dr. Spaniel - and I'm so happy I did! I feel completely safe going into the office due to the state of the art safety and cleanliness equipment and procedures in place. Dr. Spaniel and team are excellent at their work - wouldn't hesitate to recommend the practice for general dentistry, cosmetic dentistry and Invisalign.

Impressive, to say the least. Not only did Summerwood Family Dental accommodate my schedule while traveling full-time in an RV, but each and every person impressed me with their competence and friendly disposition. I'd characterize them as big city dentistry with a small town spirit.

Chuck K

You can tell each person you speak to at this office truly cares about their patients and their work. Sarah, Karen, Alyssa, and of course Dr Spaniel are super knowledgeable and experienced - not only that, they're lovely people too. I was well overdue for a cleaning and x-rays and they took the time to get everything done right without any of the tsk-tsk-ing I was so afraid of receiving. Looking forward to coming back!

Penelope R

The entire staff was just outstanding! Friendly, welcoming, professional, explained everything, listened, put me at ease and very gentle. State of the art dental office, state of the art staff!

It is so wonderful to find a dentist's office that is taking Covid precautions seriously. The clean room HEPA filtration is state of the art and much appreciated. I felt totally safe bringing my child for dental care there, and it was overall a great experience. Dr. Spaniel very clearly and compassionately explained all of the procedures and options, making everyone feel comfortable. I will be switching to this office as well as my other family members, and recommending it to all of my friends.

Dr. Julie is fantastic.. She was very patient and took the time to explain so much to me about my teeth. Thanks! I really liked her air flow cleaning system and video camera.

I have never been so actively engaged in my dental procedures. They have fascinating technology to walk you through exactly what they are discussing. Seeing such clear pictures of my gums and plaque build up has definitely made me a more conscious and effective brusher. I have had several persisting issues over the past couple years and she was the first dentist to dive deeper into the cause and offer potential solutions. The office is spotlessly clean and appealing, it was fun to see before/after pictures of all the work she has put into the space. I would highly recommend Dr. Spaniel and her friendly welcoming staff for all your dental needs!

- Sadie R.

Absolutely amazing! I almost never write reviews but all I can say is, WOW! From the initial consultation to creating a plan for what I call my “teeth goals” everyone is just amazing. Very clean and safe environment for my family and I. From the reception area, hygienist, aides and overall Dr. S. I felt like they were specifically there to just take care of me. Like for once I felt like I was in a luxury spa (but you know, for my teeth) and everyone catered to me. I feel so at ease with how personable all the staff are towards me every time I’ve gone in so far. Very professional with keeping you updated with what you need to know for appointments and after care help. Definitely check this place out for all your oral care goals!

- Terina K.

Dr. Spaniel and her staff are exceptional! I have gone to so many dentists and this office by FAR has exceeded all of my expectations. They are kind, funny, and actually listen to their patients. Today I had a cleaning and I have never had such a pleasant painless cleaning in my life! The dental hygienist was gentle, funny, and very likable! I love their attitude and I can see that they care about what they do. You can’t go wrong them! Another bonus is the beautiful office, I felt like I was in a spa! 😊

- Yulia K.

Just finished my cleaning and check up, the staff with Dr. Spaniel really went out of there way to make me feel comfortable during my appointment. They took the time to explain and educate me on the new technology of the office and the new equipment being used for my treatment. Thank you again for the extra effort during my visit. What a wonderful Staff!
