Dr. Jacque Gambee | Portland, OR Dentist | Roots Dental - Powell

Dr. Jacqueline Gambee

Dr. Jacqueline Gambee attended Oregon Health and Science University where she earned her dental degree and completed a General Practice Residency at Oregon Health and Science University.

Dr. Gambee fell in love with the beauty and culture of the Northwest and decided to plant her roots permanently. She enjoys helping the community and those in need, participating in volunteering programs such as Give Kids a Smile, Mission of Mercy, and traveling dental vans providing care to underserved areas. She cherishes the opportunity to lead the Roots Dental - Powell team and strives to offer upstanding dental care to her patients.

“I love that I have the opportunity to use my skills and make a difference in the lives of my patients.”

When she is not making healthy, beautiful smiles, you will often find her staying fit by practicing yoga and pilates or riding her tandem bike with her husband, Dr. Leif Gambee. She also spends plenty of time playing with her puppies.
