Meet the doctor
Dr. Amanda Tinkle grew up in Corvallis, Oregon, and attended Oregon State University, earning a bachelor’s degree in German with honors, summa cum laude, with a plan of pursuing a career in teaching. In 2001, Dr. Amanda moved to Portland with her future husband, for him to attend dental school, and reconsidered her career path. After learning more about the field as she watched her husband begin his dental journey, she decided to pursue dentistry as well. She attended Portland State University and earned a bachelor’s degree in Science, also summa cum laude, then was accepted into the Oregon Health and Science University School of Dentistry.
As multi-tasking is one of her superpowers, Dr. Amanda started a family in her third year of studies by welcoming a baby boy, Isaac. She graduated in 2010 and bought her first practice in Vancouver, WA in 2012. Her daughter, Arden, arrived shortly thereafter. After successfully working as a sole practice owner for seven wonderful years, Dr. Amanda was invited by former dental school classmate, Dr. Benjamin DeGraff, to join him as a partner at Burlingame Dental Arts. It was extremely difficult to leave her beloved patients and team in Vancouver, but the opportunity to partner with her longtime friend and colleague was too exciting to pass up. Having been welcomed with open arms by BDA’s team, she is happy to be making new connections with another wonderful group of patients.
Outside of the office
Being so close to home, Dr. Amanda loves being able to spend more time with her family. Both of her children attend school nearby and participate in various activities throughout the year. Her husband Aaron, also a Portland-area general dentist, has a practice of his own in the Belmont neighborhood.
At home, they all enjoy snuggling with their cat Charlotte and playing with their puppy Ruby. As a family, they love to travel and get out and enjoy Oregon outdoors.
