Dr. Gabrhel grew up in a dental family in the town of Muskego, Wisconsin. Her patient care philosophy has been strongly influenced by watching her father in private practice build relationships with his patients and personalize their care. She has a firm belief that patients should be well informed to take an active role in making the best treatment decisions for their dental health. Dr. Gabrhel feels that Wolf River Dental offers the perfect opportunity to bring that philosophy to life.
She attended the University of Wisconsin Eau Claire where she earned her Bachelor of Science in biology and double minors in chemistry and pre-professional health science. Upon graduation, she followed in her father’s footsteps earning her Doctor of Dental Surgery from Marquette University School of Dentistry.
Dr. Gabrhel’s fiancé is from Green Bay and together they plan to establish their home in the greater Green Bay area. In her free time she enjoys playing tennis, pheasant hunting, exploring the area, and spending time outside and with family.
