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 in 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 educational courses to keep herself at par with the ongoing developments in the field of Dentistry. 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 that 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 to providing dental care for children early in her career. She was awarded for her leadership in community service for children while pursuing dental school. A mother today, Dr. Galan understands the patience that is required to interact with children and most importantly, to teach them good oral habits at an early age. Her love for children has led her to expand dental services to them by providing early interceptive orthodontics.

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 has taken her abroad to countries in order to provide dental services to patients who have no means of getting dental treatment.

Closer to the home she has worked as a dentist for non-profit organizations such as The Health Trust and Tri-city Health Center, where she provided dentistry to the 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 her profession and plays an active role in providing dental services to the community. Dr. Galan is a member of the American and California Dental Associations as well as the Santa Clara County Dental Society.
