Aida M. Galan DMD was born and raised in the Republic of Panama. With over 20 years of experience in the dental field, one can say Dr. Galan has practically dedicated her life to dentistry. Dr. Galan began her career in dentistry 1989 and worked hard to put herself through school until she graduated from the University of Pittsburgh, School of Dental Medicine in May of 2002. Dr. Galan takes continuous education courses, well above the state requirements, to keep herself at par with the ongoing cutting edge developments. One of her goals is to enhance people’s lives by creating beautiful smiles through proper coaching and in the most conservative and affordable way. She believes this in turn will help her patients regain control of their oral health, as well as, increase their confidence and self esteem.
Dr. Galan has been very dedicated in providing care for kids early in her career. While in dental school she was awarded for her leadership in community service for children. Being a mother herself now, Dr. Galan understands the patience it takes to interact with children, but most importantly, to teach them good oral habits at an early age by creating a positive environment during their visits. Her love for children has led her to expand services to her smaller patients by providing early interceptive orthodontics. Her office is designed to provide a relaxing, fun and comfortable environment in a state-of-the-art-facility.
Dr. Galan has been involved in many community services and has volunteered in many programs such as Dentist with a Heart, Special Olympics and others. Her love and passion for dentistry, as well as giving back to the community, has taken her to countries abroad to provide dental work to patient with no means of dental treatment.
Closer to home she has worked as a dentist for non-profit organizations such as the The Health Trust and Tri-city Health Center, where she provided dentistry to underserved communities. At the Health Trust, where she worked for over 2 years, she focused on children from the ages of 0-18 years of age. Today she is a respected member of the dental profession and active in the community. Dr. Galan is a member of the American and California Dental Associations as well as the Santa Clara County Dental Society.
Outside the office, Dr. Galan enjoys spending time with family and friends, outdoor activities, loves music and traveling.
