Meet the Doctors
Dr. Kriston Gallipeau
Dr. Kriston Gallipeau is a native of San Diego. She graduated from Patrick Henry High School, completed her undergraduate studies at San Diego State University and obtained her doctorate from the University of California, San Francisco in 1998. A perfectionist by nature, Dr. Gallipeau chose to attend a general practice residency program to sharpen her skills. After completing her training she returned home to practice dentistry.
Dr. Gallipeau is an active member of the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, San Diego County Dental Association, and the Dental Organization for Oral Conscious Sedation.
Dr. Gallipeau is continuously educating herself by taking continuing education seminars and hands-on courses in the latest dental advances. At the same time she knows that it takes more than academic knowledge to make patients feel comfortable, "Patients need to know that you care about them as a person and not just a mouth," and that's what you sense when you come to Dr. Gallipeau's dental office.
"I never forget that teeth are attached to people and for that reason I treat each patient as I would my family and friends."
Dr. Gallipeau is an active member of her community and church. When not at work she loves spending time with her husband, two daughters, and their three dogs.
Dr. Annie Chow
Dr. Annie Chow grew up in Orange County, completed her undergraduate studies at UC San Diego and continued on to pursue her education in dentistry at the University of the Pacific in San Francisco. It was her desire to be in the health field and the hands on and creative aspect of dentistry that lead her here today. She keeps up to date with the latest in dentistry through continuing her education and participation with the ADA, CDA, and San Diego Dental Society.
Dr Chow's patients would describe her as gentle, compassionate, and very approachable. She believes in good communication with her patients so that as a team they can come to an well informed decision on their oral health. Providing a positive and painless dental visit for all her patients is her goal at the end of the day.
Outside of dentistry, Dr Chow enjoys traveling, watching HGTV and stand up, and spending time with her family.
