Dr Jan GabusDr. Jessie Vallée

Dr. Jessie Vallée, DDS

Dr. Jessie Vallée has spent the majority of her career balancing private practice with being a dental educator.  After graduating from the University of the Pacific Arthur A. Dugoni School of Dentistry in 2004, Dr. Vallée spent three years in the United States Navy. There she completed an AEGD program and served tours in Iraq, Kuwait and Japan in Naval Mobile Construction Battalion THREE (NMCB-3).  She earned a Navy and Marine Corps Achievement Medal for her service as the NMCB-3 Dental, Triage, and Public Affairs Officer in Operation Iraqi Freedom as well as a Seabee Combat Warfare Medal. 

Upon departing Naval Service, Dr. Vallee returned to the Bay Area and began full-time private practice. Feeling unfulfilled, she searched for an outlet that would again give her a sense of camaraderie and working towards the greater good.  She found that outlet when she returned to her alma mater to teach in the Occlusion and TMD preclinical course--the study of the function of jaws and teeth. 

She soon immersed herself as a full-time faculty member, course-directing Fixed Prosthodontics (crowns and bridges) and managing clinical groups.  Eventually, Dr. Vallée was named Director of Preclinical Education in the Department of Integrated Reconstructive Dentistry where she oversaw all Preclinical Restorative courses including Fixed Prosthodontics, Operative Dentistry (fillings), Dental Anatomy, Occlusion, Implant Dentistry and Removable Prosthodontics (dentures).  She also taught in the Advanced Esthetics and Complex Care Clinic alongside her own mentors. 

Throughout her career in education, she maintained a robust, part-time private practice in Greenbrae, CA, practicing family and esthetic dentistry.  She has published and lectured on the topics of ceramic and composite materials, excellence and best practices in Restorative Dentistry, women in dental leadership and curriculum design and assessment.  She received multiple grants for curriculum innovation projects including from the Pierre Fauchard Academy.   She authored two chapters of the textbook, Esthetic Dentistry in Clinical Practice, 2010. (Blackwell)  

Dr. Vallée is excited to begin her next career transition in her new community.  Along with her husband Mike, and daughter Mila, Dr. Vallée moved to Menlo Park in November of 2016.  She joined the practice of Dr. Gabus in July of 2017. She will remain with the practice when Dr. Gabus retires and is looking forward to caring for patients with the same level of compassion, expertise and precision as Dr. Gabus.

Dr. Vallée and Mike are welcoming another daughter in January of 2018.  In her few moments of free time, Dr. Vallee enjoys sewing and apparel design.

"I have been a regular patient of Jan Gabus since 1995, and I not only find him to be an exceptional dentist, but I am also consistently impressed by the quality care provided by his friendly and professional staff. They are 'as good as it gets' in terms of dental care."
