Meet Dr. Leif Gambee


Your Friendly Carlton Dentist

My name is Leif Gambee and I’m excited to be part of such a special team. The minute I walked into Carlton Dental and saw how close-knit and caring the staff was, I knew this was the right place for me.

I was born and raised in Oregon City, then attended Gonzaga University for my undergrad in Spokane, Washington. Following my undergrad, I was fortunate enough to return home and continue my education at OHSU in their dental program. Little did I know, OHSU would assign me a second-year mentor who would eventually become my wife, my mentor for life.

My wife Jacqueline is from Arizona, but we are both Oregonians at heart. Our journey has led us on countless road trips in the constant search for the perfect setting to plant our roots. It only took one visit and witnessing Carlton Dental’s connection to the community before we realized we were home. I cherish the opportunity to become a part of the Carlton community and I’m eager to continue to provide the upstanding dental care and tradition of excellence that you have become accustomed to at Carlton Dental. Looking forward to meeting you all!
