A South Sound native, Dr. Jamie is deeply invested in Tacoma. Since opening her studio in 2008, she has built relationships around the city by supporting artists and small business owners and helping community members reach their oral health goals. You’ll regularly find her out and about walking her three rescue dogs, bell-ringing for the Salvation Army with Rotary 8, or tending to Little Free Libraries around town. Jamie enjoys spending time with her husband and three children, cooking, reading, and doing yoga.


Jamie’s diligence and attention as a dentist are in her lineage. Growing up with a father who was a practicing dentist, she became familiar with the trade as a young child. Jamie now views her father as a model for excellence in the field and they continue to work together at Brooks Dental Studio where he assists in appliance-making and model work.


Jamie earned her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Washington in 1999. She worked as a practicing hygienist for eight years prior to her doctorate, and earned her Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene from the Oregon Health & Science University in 1991. She continues her dentistry studies at the L.D. Pankey Institute and Spear Education, two cornerstones of the dental profession, and participates in multiple dental study clubs that focus on clinical, behavioral, and leadership skills.
