We have been going to Dr. Galan for about 8 years and won't go any where else. Dr. Galan and her staff are fantastic...front office staff is helpful and responsive, hygienists are friendly and gentle, and Dr. Galan incredibly knowledgeable.
Galan Dental is a professional organization that values customer service. Dr. Galan is highly skilled, knowledgeable, and a perfectionist, taking pride in her work and in her patients' satisfaction. She is patient and takes the time to learn her patients' preferences and concerns. You learn very quickly she is a kind and thoughtful person. Her staff consistently strive to cater to the patients and answer all their questions. I feel quite fortunate to have discovered this practice.
Dr. Galan is an excellent dentist! Her staff are very respectful and caring. I originally came to Dr. Galan because the Army Reserve Readiness Program LHI sent me there for a Dental exam. The staff was great! Dr. Galan seemed very caring. She did the exam and X-rays for the Army. She then told me I had cavities and needed dental work done. She asked me if I had a dentist I was seeing. I told her I did. She told me to contact my dentist to get my teeth taken care of because I had cavities and she didn't want me to lose my teeth. She was very caring and I felt like I was in good hands so I asked her to please do my fillings. I don't recall if it was Veronica or Michelle who talked to me and asked me if I had dental insurance. I had dental insurance but never used it before nor did I have any proof I had dental insurance. They contacted my insurance to get the info for me and also took care of the billing. I felt so taken care of. During my second appointment for fillings, I brought my wife along because I wanted her to check out Galan Dental. Dr. Galan brought a chair for my wife to sit in while I was getting my fillings done. I then asked Dr. Galan if she could take a look at my wife's teeth. My wife had braces and was seeing another dentist every 2 to 3 weeks for a couple of years and her front teeth had holes on the sides and were turning dark. Dr. Galan saw the seriousness of my wife's problem and quickly took action. She took the time to treat my wife's teeth that same day and got rid of the obvious decay overseen by our previous dentist. We left our old dentist and our family is happy under the care of Dr. Galan. She is military friendly and even hires vets. Our second daughter was born recently. When I was emailing friends and family pictures of our baby, Veronica and Dr. Galan came to my mind. I emailed their office pictures as well. I then brought our baby to Galan Dental for a visit. They were so excited to meet the newest addition to our family! I read the negative reviews on here. I really find it hard to believe. Dr. Galan truly cares for her patients and is not out to make a quick buck. She is currently doing the braces for my wife, my ten year old daughter, and myself. Dr. Galan has not pressured us for treatment. On the contrary, they informed us that we were about to run out of benefits last year and Dr. Galan told us that we could wait a couple more months until January when the insurance resets to continue treatment. That reduced out out of pocket costs. That was very thoughtful of her. This place is great! Dr. Galan and her staff are amazing!
Dr. Galan is the best dentist I have ever been to, and I have been to several (thanks to not getting good dental hygiene education growing up). I can trust her judgement and feel that she has my best interest at heart when giving me options for treatment. She has a very clean office which makes me feel at ease about the things that go in my mouth. Being a busy professional my time is valuable and her office understands that. They are happy people who know how to take care of their patients. And the best part is that I don't feel anything when she gives her injections. She puts this gel first which numbs the area before, so you don't feel anything!I travel over 1 hour just to see her and even bring my kids to see her.
Dr. Galan has been my dentist now for the past 6 years. She's been amazing! Not only is she a great dentist, but she truly cares about each and every one of her patients. I love how her hours fit my family's busy schedule and that she even offers Saturday appointments if your work week is too crazy. My entire family loves Dr. Galan including my two little girls whom once feared going to the dentist. Now they can't wait to see her because they know they're in gentle hands. Thank You Dr. Galan for being there for us! :)
I've been going to Dr. Galan for many years and recommended Galan Dental to many of my colleagues. Everyone feels the same way. Its actually fun to go to the dentist! The team is welcoming, helpful, gentle and the place is spotless. Dr Galan even volunteered for the non-profit I work for offering free cleanings to children at a homeless shelter. Shes amazing. All my experiences here have been positive.
Dr. Galan and her staff are wonderful. We never have a problem getting in to see her and mynkids actually get excited about trips to the dentist! I had some pretty serious cavities that needed fixing after a pregnancy and I've been very happy with the work she did.
I have been going to Dr. Galan for over seven years. She and her staff are great. They are personable and highly skilled. No one wants to go to the dentist but I actually have fun there. As for my teeth, I've experienced a real improvement in their health since going to Dr. Galan. They make it easy to stay current on cleanings and other needs.
I absolutely love Dr. Galan and her staff! I've been coming here for years and they always make me feel comfortable and they're always making me laugh in the chair. I always get a little nervous getting the numbing needle in but Dr. Galan is always gentle and goes at a pace I'm comfortable with. If you're an adult or have kids, I highly recommend coming here. My whole family comes including both of my younger siblings. I remember bringing my brother in when he was around 5 years old to get a cavity filled and he was scared but they are so good with kids! He ended up falling asleep in the chair. Dr. Galan, the assistants and the staff are all amazing.
Dr. Galan is truly the best dentist around. My family has been longtime patients and we couldn't be happier, she has provided excellent service and she has made dentist appts very pleasant. Staff is great and very accommodating. We truly recommend her.
Dr. Galan and her hygienist Christi rock! Both very thorough and talented clinically! I have spent my entire career in the dental field and having 2 fillings done by Dr Galan was one of the best experiences I've ever had. Christi was an expert at making my pearly whites sparkle and a perfectionist at her craft. Go see them!
Dr.Galan has been great with all that she has done for me and my family. When I found her I had a few aches from a neglectful dentist. So my first year with her was busy! Every visit was explained in detail along with the financial side. No surprises! Everyone is always careful not to stress my TMJ. Sometimes they even wrap me up in a blanket to reduce my stress; it helps with the TMJ too. They are so caring! The office is clean and nicely decorated. The chairs and equipment are all very nice. Another thing I like and appreciate about this dental team is they are a team! They all communicate very well with myself and each other. They are well organized so you dont have to wait for bills or to be seen.The only thing I dont like is it takes me 20 minutes to get to her office from my home. The care and expertise is well worth every minute!Thank you Dr. Galan and team for all that you do! - I am so excited to start invisaline!
Dr. Galan and her team (esp. Veronica) are wonderful. I can't express it enough - I switched over from another dentist because he was uncommunicative and I didn't feel like I had a say in my dental proceedings. Things definitely changed when I contacted Dr. Galan's team, starting with speaking to Veronica over the phone. She is so caring and attentive - she knew I was having trouble with my current dentist and was so genuine in wanting to make sure I find a good dentist. When I arrived, I was greeted pleasantly without an over-the-top-fakeness, I hate over-the-top fakeness; it's actually one of the reasons why I left the other dentist, it didn't feel authentic. I'll give an update once I come back for my kid with Dr. Galan, hopefully it'll go well.
Had amazing experience at her office today. She kept me informed on what she was doing and answered all my questions.
Dr. Galan's enthusiasm and expertise come across as soon as you meet her. She goes the extra mile to make sure a patent is calm and comfortable -- as well as completely satisfied. I, as well as my adult children, are very satisfied customers.
Dr. Galan is great. I'm a difficult patient, because I have difficulty opening wide for a long time, and I gag easily. But Dr. Galan is patient and careful, and works with me to do a good job fixing my teeth without making me too uncomfortable.The hygienists aren't bad either, but they aren't the reason I've been going there for 4 years now. :-)
My dad always went here and when I started a new job about 4 years ago, I needed to get a new dentist.....what do ya know, Dr. Galan was 5 minutes away from my new office! A sign from GOD? i think YES!...Anyhow 4 years later, i found that this is a great place. The office is clean and the staff is great from the front desk to the hygienists,etc. I enjoy talking to them and Dr. Galan is so pleasant! I am due for my teeth cleaning, so following this review I should call them. =)
Dr. Galan and her incredible staff are very warm and create a comfortable environment out of a trip to the dentist, which inherently isn't all that fun. I've had cavities filled as well as a crown put in and it was a great experience. Dr. Galan listened to my worries and did her best (which is pretty damn great) to make the procedure as painless as possible. For someone who's job is using sharp objects in the tender mouths of her patients, Dr. Galan does so with ease. I would absolutely reccommend Dr. Galan for anyone looking for a dentist. Her work is top notch and I trust her thoroughly with the health of my teeth. Bonus, you can totally watch a movie while you get your teeth fixed.
My family has been visiting Dr. Galan since early 2009. My two youngest children actually look forward to their visits to her office. Not sure if any of it has to do with being able to play with the PS3, watch a movie of their own choice while getting their teeth cleaned or just the warm friendly personalities that fill the office. I would definitely recommend her office to all my friends( which some of them have switched over to her) any day!!!Btw my son just had his first filling done do to a chipped tooth and didn't complain once....not bad for a seven year old!
Like everyone, I hated going to the dentist until I met Aida =) She is ,without a doubt, the best dentist I've ever met. I now have no problem with going to the dentist. Every time I go, Aida makes sure I am always comfortable. I have referred more than 6 people to Aida and everyone loves her. She has been my dentist for the last 6 years and I could not be happier with her. Her staff is also friendly and caring. If you are looking for an amazing dentist in the Silicon Valley, do call Galan Dental. Si buscas la mejor dentista de esta area, tienes que llamar a Dr. Aida Galan. Ella se preocupa por cada uno de sus pacientes y siempre esta al pendiente de su comodidad. Doctor Galan es bilingue y podra ayudarte en tu idioma.
Dr Aida Galan runs a pristine practice with an office to match. Her staff if warm, friendly, and professional. Her services are top notch and she is always looking for new tools and ideas to bring to her office in effort to make her patients feel more at ease during their visits. Her expertise is unmatched and always has time to thoroughly answer any question you may have. I highly recommend Dr Galan to any individual, family, or business that is in need of professional, accessible and thorough dental care.
I have never been dissatisfied with Dr. Galan, her staff, or the hygienists in her office. I left my previous dentist mostly because his chair-side manner was rude, disrespectful, and all about the $$$.My experience at Dr. Galan's office was completely the opposite. She has always respected me as a patient, never once did I feel she was trying to "sell" me something I didn't need, and most importantly she always had an attention to detail I really appreciated.The technology in her office is second to none. X-rays are a snap, everything is digital and computerized, and what I loved most was her auto-injector gadget for delivering anesthetic. It was seriously painless!!Because my teeth stain quite easily, Dr. Galan was pleased to touch up some cleaning work only a month or two after my routine cleaning, i really appreciated it! You can really tell she cares for her patients a lot and makes sure her staff do the same.The hygienists are very gentle, well educated, and very detail oriented! You can tell Dr. Galan goes above and beyond to hire only the best hygienists in the area!Recently I moved from San Jose to San Diego and was quite saddened I would have to leave Dr. Galan, but i asked her for a referral to a dentist in the area. A few days later she sent me an email with the name of an office she referred to as the "dentist's dentist." My experience at this office has been just as excellent as Dr. Galan! Thanks for the great referral! I'll miss ya!!
Dr. Galan is the BEST! I have refered my husband and my daughter to her for dental services, she listens to them, she treats them with great care, my daughter really enjoys her visits there, my daughter is in her 20's and as a young adult she finds the office very trendy, extremely clean and very cozy, she loves to come and feel at ease when getting dental work done! Dr. Galan listens to my husband, as he is the type that needs anesthetic even for a cleaning, it has been quite a wonderful experience for him. Dr. Galan calls within the next few days after a procedure just to follow up, now that is hard to find now days.Thanks Dr. Galan!!!! From a very happy family!!!
