Suggested reading brought to you by Summerwood Family Dental – Dedicated to skillful dentistry and personal care


For nearly 30 years, Dr. Julie Spaniel has helped redefine the dentist-client relationship by cultivating a rapport with customers while skillfully focusing on their dental needs.

A native of Ann Arbor, Michigan-by way of Oregon working at Portland Veteran’s Affairs Medical Center-Spaniel spent 25 years in Vermont raising her family while building her successful, large general dental practice. Now in the Portland-metro area, Spaniel continues her successful business model to Oregonians who value her extraordinary level of expertise and commitment to the ‘personal touch’ dentalcare.

“The level of personal care is fading from our healthcare system,” Spaniel said. “At Summerwood, we have a team of clinicians who strongly believe our patients deserve the best care and we pride ourselves in our commitment to their dental health. We establish trust one patient at a time.”

Currently, Summerwood has designated unique treatment rooms in response to the pandemic. Each room is specially isolated from the other rooms and dental chairs have an overhead aerosol extraction flume connected to a virus-capture HEPA filter. This means 99.9% of all viruses and no aerosols will leave the treatment rooms.

“Safety is imperative for all our clients. We have adapted our office to give you state-of-the-art clean room dentistry,” Spaniel said. “Just know we will be smiling under our masks because we are happy to see you.”
