Dr. Becky Van Gemert Coombs, DDS was raised in Spokane the second of five children. She attended Cataldo Catholic School, Gonzaga Prep High School and graduated from the University of Washington in 1998. She spent her summers working in an orthodontic office where her tremendously rewarding experiences in patient care ultimately led to her desire to become a pediatric dentist. Dr. Becky graduated from the University of Michigan School of Dentistry in 2002 and worked as a general dentist until 2008. Throughout this time, she particularly enjoyed working with children and decided to further her training by completing a residency in pediatric dentistry in 2011 through the University of Washington. Her research focus during residency was early access, a plan designed to facilitate dental visits for all children before the age of one as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists. Dr. Becky served as a part-time clinical faculty member at Eastern Washington University's School of Dental Hygiene and has physician privileges at Sacred Heart Hospital and Valley Hospital. Dr. Becky is currently a member of the American Dental Association, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists, the Washington State Dental Association, the Washington State Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, and the Spokane District Dental Society. She spent a year volunteering on the Ronald McDonald Care Mobile and participates in Give Kids a Smile Day. Dr. Becky is very excited to be settling in her native Spokane with her husband, Cody, and son, Sawyer. She takes immense pleasure in the many outdoor activities and natural beauty of the Inland Northwest and may often be found at the lake surrounded by family.
