Meet Your Dentist, Dr. Suzanne Winans

Dr. Winans is a graduate of the University of Washington School of Dentistry. She received her undergraduate degree in Dental Hygiene from the University of Washington and practiced as a hygienist for 20 years. She was employed here at Tenino Family Dental for 10 of those years then returned to the University of Washington School of Dentistry to graduate with her Dental degree in 2004.

She received many clinical and academic awards during her education and graduated in the top 10% of her class. Dr. Winans believes learning is a life long experience and takes many hours of continuing education annually as well as participating in the Spears Study Club.

Patients are Dr. Winans first priority. Her philosophy of care and values include excellence in clinical care and focusing on each individual patient… she enjoys taking time with patients to listen carefully, examine thoroughly, discuss options and then develop a plan of care that works for each individual.

In addition to her work in the office, Dr. Winans is committed to the enrichment and health of the local Tenino community. Through sponsorship of the Local Tenino Farmers Market, the Young At Heart Theatre, and many other local community projects she hopes to enrich and give back to the wonderful community of Tenino.

She is a member of the Thurston Mason County Dental Society, the Washington State Dental Association and the American Dental Association. Dr. Winans is also an “in-office” volunteer and provider for the Olympia Union Gospel Mission.

When out of the office, Dr. Winans puts family first by keeping up with her daughter and husband. She enjoys traveling, cycling, horseback riding and creating new dishes with fresh foods from the local farmers.
