Dr. Luke Gambee
Luke was raised in Oregon, but is happy to call Glendive his home since 2011. He has wanted to be a dentist since he was 12. After serving a 2-year mission in Italy after high school, he played basketball for Western Oregon University, while earning his bachelor degree. Perhaps tired of the rainy days of Oregon, he headed south to sunny Arizona for dental school. He loves being able to get to know so many people in the community through dentistry. While oral health is his focus, he feels passionate about overall health through healthy living and nutrition. His free time is spent hiking, biking, or doing anything outdoors preferably with his 5 kids and wife in tow trying to keep up with his energy and enthusiasm.
He claims to be part of the first and only group to have navigated the Makoshika River from the switchbacks all the way to the visitor center in April 2013
