Dr. Gates grew up 4th in a family of 11 children in Eastern Oregon. She graduated from OSU (Go Beavs!) and attended OHSU in Portland for her dental training. She loves working with families to help obtain and maintain a happy, healthy smile.
She met her husband and love of her life (Chris) attending OSU. They have 4 wonderful children who keep them very busy; Tyler (10), Alaina (8), Evelyn (2), and Tucker (6 months). They love listening to Tyler and Alaina play the piano, compete in soccer, wrestling and gymnastics. Evelyn is solidly enjoying her terrible twos, climbing furniture, investigating any open drawer, and all the time being adorable. Tucker has learned to scoot around and is enjoying testing out his first two teeth.
She looks forward to meeting you and your family!
