Dr. Dewey’s passion is delivering exceptional dentistry with the latest techniques and equipment while making a connection with patients and helping them feel comfortable. He is a genuinely friendly person and we are lucky to have him join our team at Summit Dental!
Dr. Dewey has a special interest in preventative care and the connection between oral health and whole-body wellness. He focuses on treating patients in the most gentle and efficient way possible.
Growing up in Michigan, Dr. Dewey attended Michigan State University majoring in Biology, and continued on to the University of Michigan for Dental School. Following dental school, he joined the United States Navy as a Dental Officer and did advanced training at Naval Station Norfolk, Virginia in the Advanced Education in General Dentistry (A.E.G.D.) program. Following his training, Dr. Dewey became the Dental Officer (O-3) aboard the nuclear-powered aircraft carrier U.S.S. Dwight D. Eisenhower (CVN 69).
After his commitment with the United States Navy concluded, Dr. Dewey moved with his family to Portland in 2006. He owned and operated a large dental office in S.E. Portland for nearly a decade until he was forced to sell his office after sustaining injuries from a texting semi-truck driver rear-ending a vehicle that he was riding in. Fully recovered after almost a year of recovery, Dr. Dewey is thrilled to be back doing what he loves! We are thrilled to have Dr. Dewey join the Summit Dental team!
Dr. Dewey has additional training post-Dental School in:
- Cerec Single-visit Ceramic Restorations and is proud to offer this advanced technology to his patients!
- Invisalign Orthodontic treatment
- Oral Surgery, Endodontics, Periodontics, fixed and removable Prosthodontics, and General Restorative Dentistry.
Dr. Dewey has two children, Nate and Nina, a dog Shadow, two pet chickens, and many fish. He spends most weekends birdwatching and hiking trails in the Columbia River Gorge and other places in our beautiful state with his kids and dog. He is a huge sports fan and enjoys watching the Portland Timbers, Blazers, Detroit Lions, and Michigan State Spartans. Please help us to welcome Dr. Dewey to the Summit Dental team!
