I have had the good fortune of having Dr Aida Galan as my dentist for a very long time. Very friendly/professional staff and her office is very clean. I’m deaf and they have been awesome in communications. I highly recommend her!

Dr. Galan is an outstanding human being. We came back in march for our holidays, and could not be able to return back home to Argentina ever since. Our youngest son needed Dental care as an emergency and she did not hesitate to help us. Even though her office is under construction, she managed to find a place where she could see him. Not only that, she helped us figure out an underlying problem our son has. As we say in our family, she is definitely one of the angels that helped us during this difficult period that we are all going through. Today, the day prior to our trip back home, she made sure to open up her schedule again for our son and took care of him flawlessly. We truly can not thank her enough for her outstanding care, her empathy and professionalism.

Today was another great care experience from the Galan dental team.  Dr. Galan has been a master at performing my numerous treatments over the past 10 years with care and expertise.  Can't wait to be cared for in her new dental offices when they open soon in the Willow Glen area.

The best family dentist I can recommend who takes dental health and personal health seriously helping us put smiles on all my family faces! Highly recommend Dr Galan, friendly staff and services!

Best dentist in the area! Dr.Galan is very professional and cares about your oral health. She is very patient and listens to your concerns and you are never rushed. In addition she takes time out of her personal life to call or email to check up on you after treatments! Who does that? Dr. Galan does!  Her staff both front office and hygienist are very polite and efficient. I and my kids have been going to Dr. Galan for over 5 years. She and her staff can never retire because we’ve been so spoiled with her kindness and mastery that I know for sure no one else can offer what she can!

I have had a lot of problems with my teeth due to chronic gum recession. I was not that happy with my previous dentist and started seeing other dentists until I had Dr. Aida Galan do 4 front crowns for me and recently a bridge. My four front crowns look natural and I have been very pleased with her work. Dr. Galan is a perfectionist and she will do whatever it takes to get the job 100% right. I did recommend Dr. Aida Galan to my daughter, son-in-law and my friends.

We've been seeing Dr. Galan for over a decade for our usual teeth cleanings and the interesting things that come up with age. We originally switched to her on a friend's recommendation and have stayed with her ever since.She and her staff have always been professional, thoughtful, and proactive about spotting issues. Thanks to her and Ping's close watch, they spotted and tracked an odd spot on my tongue that appeared a little like a scar from a bite...but they noticed it was slowly changing shape. They gave me a referral to a surgeon that could do soft palate work. I'm relieved to have taken it out as it was abnormal tissue -- maybe not an immediate issue but could have become one. I appreciate that level of attention!

I have been visiting Dr Galan for several years now. I have had nothing but a great experience with her and her team. They are professional, and send plenty of text reminders for upcoming appointments. I always feel very comfortable in such a friendly environment.

So I've been to Doctor Galan a few times now, and I feel really comfortable when I'm getting my teeth done, which is really relieving because going to a dentist is hella nerv racking, but her and her staff are really nice and professional and just good at what they do. I have a lot of fun conversations with the staff there and I always feel welcomed there because whenever I walk into their office they always say " Hi Dante!" which is crazy to me because I don't even know their names.

Dr Galan and her team are fantastic. They are very thorough and are concerned not only with fixing issues, but prevention. I have regular cleanings and feel like the team take a genuine interest. Recently, my daughter needed some emergency treatment. Dr Galan arranged to have her seen on a Saturday and then helped to connect us with an additional provider to get the right care at short notice on a weekend. I've been impressed with the team's work with my children generally, continuing to educate and find creative ways to engage the children and improve their oral health. Dr Galan takes the time to explain what the issues are, why they are caused and what options are available. Highly recommended.

AMAZING! AMAZING! AMAZING! Dr. Galan is not just a fabulous dentist but she is also an incredible artist. Her talent and expertise in the cosmetic arena speaks for itself. I get nothing but compliments on my smile. I work in the dental industry and literally refer everyone to Dr. Galan. I am also thrilled that she is working with children AND adults to solve their sleep apnea problems. Sleep apnea creates many behavioral issues in children, which unfortunately many of us parents are not aware of. Who knew that so many children who are now mediated for behavioral problems are simply not getting enough oxygen while they sleep?! Thankfully I learned this early on and solving the real issue positively changed the life of my son - permanently. Sleep apnea can also lead to many serious mental, emotional and physical problems later in life. Thank you Dr. Galan for putting your arms around real solutions that we all need and keeping my smile beautiful! You and your staff are one in a million! - Amy

I have been a patient of Dr. Galan's for about eight years and have been extremely satisfied with the quality of dental work and care I consistenly receive.  Dr. Galan and her staff are always professional, friendly, and efficient.  I had Invisalign a couple years ago, with Dr. Galan's help, and had perfect results.  I have friends who had poor experiences with the Invisalign process elsewhere and had to redo their treatments, thereby prolonging their results and ultimately costing them much more time and money.  Dr. Galan is a perfectionist, with an eye to extreme detail- exactly someone I want working on my teeth.Today I just came home from having a small cavity filled and was astonished at the technology that she utilized to quickly, painlessly and effectively remove and fill a cavity.  No more needles and drills- she uses topical numbing ointment and lasers.  I was able to leave the dentist office without feeling like half of my face was numb and falling off.  All in all, I highly recommend Dr. Galan for anyone's dental needs.  I've moved twenty miles away from her since I first began seeing her, and I still travel past many other dental offices to receive her quality of care!

Dr. Galan answered her phone after hours to me over the weekend while she was busy at home and offered suggestions about how to get seen through my insurance without spending extra money to see her. After that was unsuccessful due to my hmo not ppo insurance, I called her back for help and she again answered, changed her plans and met me at her office very quickly for an xray and a prescription for my problem, along with instructions for further treatment wherever I decided to go with my insurance.Anyone who is able to have her for a dentist is in great hands with a person who cares about each person as a whole.That's the impression I got from her and this office visit that she was so kind to help me with.Thank you Aida for your kindness and concern!!

Excellent staff. Dr. Galan is very confident with her work and it shows!
More
I've been going to Dr. Galan for over 10 years. The service is top notch. The part I value the most is that her, and her team always are in good spirits, and make you feel like part of the family!
More
Dr. Galan takes very good, personal care of each of her patients. Her and her staff do an excellent job of explaining to you what they are doing while they are doing the work. The army reserves brought me to Dr. Galan, but the environment keeps my business.
More
Staff is very nice, I was late and they still took me for my appointment. I never felt rushed.  Dr. Galan is fantastic!  Very gentle and always makes me feel at ease.

I've been with Galan Dental for as long as I can remember and I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Galan and her team. Every time I go in, I am warmly welcomed and the whole team remembers specific details about my life that I have shared with them from my last visit. I feel like they take a personal interest in me not only as a patient but as a friend. The vibe in the office is very positive and every hygienist I've worked with has done a thorough & professional job with my cleanings, x-rays etc. Dr. Galan has come in on her days off for emergencies I've run into with irritability I've experienced with my teeth and gums and she has also completely fixed a chip on my front tooth that was a total eye sore! I've gone through a series of Invisalign that completely revamped my smile and every time I walk out after my appointments I feel a sense of satisfaction and relief that I'm in good hands!
More
I have been going to Dr Galan since like 2008. She is by far the best dentist I have ever had, which is a lot. We have done a lot of work on my teeth over the years. I had a ton of cavities, a few root canals, some crowns, wisdom teeth removed and invisalign. At first I had to go in for deep cleanings every few months. Now I go in every 6 months and her and her team are always happy at how I maintain my teeth. I even paid out of pocket when I didn't have any insurance and have come back for appointments when I lived out of state. Her office is amazing, warm and friendly. I highly recommend! But please note that it is up to the individual to  maintain and follow through with home care. Doctors and dentists can only do so much.

I've been going to Dr. Galan for over a decade. And I need to go ever 3 months for deep cleaning due to hereditary gum issues. So I know her and her staff very well. Over the years I've had a few medical emergencies where Dr. Galan even came in during non-office hours to get me out of pain. She has done a variety of services beyond cleaning including making dental plates, the teeth for implants etc. Her work was always top notch.They gladly use Nitrous Oxide when I request it (which is pretty much every deep cleaning or anything that may be painful) which to me is required since I go so often.Dr. Galan and her staff always treat me well and treat my mouth, teeth and gums gently and extremely competently. In particular, Ping who now does all my cleanings is the best dental technician I've ever had work on my mount. She is extremely careful, considerate and gentle I almost look forward to going to the dentist for cleaning!

I've been going to Dr. Galan for years. She's the best. I highly recommend her. She is thoughtful, considerate, and delivers quality work.

My daughter and I have been going to Dr. Galan for almost 5 years now. My husband started seeing her a couple years ago. She has done a lot of work in my mouth and she's really great at what she does. She is very knowledgeable and talented, and she makes sure to get everything right! I'm so glad I have her as our dentist and I would encourage my family and friends to see her too because I know she will take good care of them.

I have been going to Dr. Galan for over seven years.  She is thorough, highly skilled and a fun person.  The clinic is clean and welcoming and the staff is great.  I have recommended her to friends and people new in town.  They have all been highly satisfied.

Dr. Galan has been my dentist for nearly 5 years now and I am so pleased with the quality of dental care I've received with every visit.  Dr. Galan crowned 3 of my teeth and did a fantastic job with each one.  Not only do my crowns feel great but cosmetically speaking, they are perfect!  Her dental staff is very friendly and professional as well.  I am at ease when I visit Dr. Galan because I know I'm in good and caring hands.

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.

Galan Dental is a very  professional family friendly practice. My 9 year old chipped his tooth one weekend after hours, Dr. Galan stayed open and took care of the problem after taking my frantic call. She did a great job in restoring the tooth andmy son's confidence.

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 very detail oriented , has a an excellent bedside manner and always explains what's occurring at each stage of the process. She is awesome!!

Awesome Visit!

My husband was the first one to go to Dr. Galan. He was referred there by Clear Choice as he wasn't a good candidate for an implant and we hadn't found a dentist that we liked since moving to San Jose. Dr. Galan's office got him right in and worked with him on the price for the bridge that he needed to replace his broken one. I went in yesterday for my first visit and the doctor and the whole staff were very friendly and helpful. Dr. Galan pointed out the work that I needed to have done and her staff helped me to make a plan to get it done. I would recommend this practice to anyone who is looking for a caring dental team.
More
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.
More
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!
More
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!
More
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.
More
Had amazing experience at her office today. She kept me informed on what she was doing and answered all my questions.
More
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.  :-)
More
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.
More
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.  =)
More
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.
More
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.

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 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.

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!!!
