Gabriela Aranda D.D.S., M.S.

As a treat, every Sunday after church Gaby used to split an orange with her younger brother. Those were the kind of treats that you got when you were raised in a family of eight children, so she definitely appreciates the value of a dollar. Growing up in Oakland, California she learned to appreciate different cultures and backgrounds. That is the reason why she warms up a room as soon as she walks in. “Be yourself and smile often” is her motto. Her background is as diverse as the different looks of her three young daughters which range from blonde hair and blue eyes to black hair and brown eyes.

She started her career with an open heart and a drive to make a difference. Affectionately known as “Dr. Gaby” to her patients and team members, she is THE example when it comes to leadership and positive attitude. She knew early on that she wanted to be a dentist when she started pulling out her older sisters loose teeth for the Tooth Fairy when she was 7. She attended the University of California at Berkeley, New York University Dental School, and then earned her orthodontic specialty training from OHSU. While at OHSU, she fell in love with Oregon and is very happy and proud to call this area her home.

She is passionate about creating raving fans and making people realize that a fantastic smile gives you so much confidence and opens up many opportunities. When she is not busy creating beautiful smiles you can find her enjoying time with her family and friends.
