Meet Dr. Philip Gallegos, DDS

A native New Mexican, Dr. Philip M. Gallegos, DDS is originally from La Jara, NM. He attended school in Cuba, NM until the age of 15, at which point he and his family moved to Albuquerque to live. He attended Saint Pius X High School where he met the love of his life, his wife Jerica. Upon graduation from Saint Pius, Dr. Gallegos went on to attend the University of New Mexico majoring in Biology and minoring in Chemistry.

Upon graduation from Baylor College of Dentistry, Dr. Gallegos moved back to NM and furthered his dental training working as an Associate for a private practice here in Albuquerque. He believes education is ongoing, for that reason Dr. Gallegos is an advocate of continuing education. Dr. Gallegos stays up-to-date with the latest techniques and procedures, and incorporates those teachings into his everyday practice of dentistry. Gallegos Family Dentistry is a comprehensive dental practice, meaning Dr. Gallegos can provide all the dental services under one roof (with the exception of a few procedures), eliminating the fear of being referred elsewhere for dental treatment.  In addition to this, Dr. Gallegos is bilingual speaking both English and Spanish!

As a dentist, Dr. Gallegos recognizes that each of his patients are unique individuals who have different wants and needs at their dental visit. For this reason, Dr. Gallegos customizes each of his treatment plans specifically to meet the needs and wants of each of his patients. Dr. Gallegos firmly believes in patient education and spending as much time as necessary to both educate you and answer any questions you may have about your visit in hope to ensure your satisfaction and understanding.

In his free time Dr. Gallegos loves spending time with his family. He enjoys the outdoors, sports, cooking, and supporting his Lobos. He is a devoted husband, as well as a proud father to his three sons, Eli, Carlo, and Andrew.
