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 two daughters, and their dogs.
