Dr. Marielena Gamboa-Ruiz

Dr. Gamboa-Ruiz was born and raised in Caracas, Venezuela, where she obtained her dental degree from Universidad Santa Maria in 2002 and then from Tufts University School of Dental Medicine.  She completed an AEGD program and practiced as a general dentist for eight years.  She completed her residency in Endodontics at Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in 2014.  She enjoys spending time with her family, traveling and making jewelry.

Says Dr. Gamboa-Ruiz, “I am passionate about my profession, both as an endodontist and academic. Teaching endodontics has represented an important pillar in my career. It is rewarding not only to have the ability to take patients out of pain, but also to teach and train future dentists and endodontists. Endodontics is the perfect combination of biology, art, and technology. It is fascinating to provide treatment to those in pain, while creating a unique piece of art, using the latest technology.”
