She participates in advanced courses and supports her staff in ongoing training in order to give you the smile you’ve always dreamed of having.

Community Service: Dr. Galera not only serves her community professionally, she is an active participant during her personal time. She enjoys hosting an annual field trip from Lum School to her office. Kids get to touch and feel dental equipment and instruments. They come away less fearful of the dental office. She also donates dental services to the disabled and a battered women’s shelter through a non-profit organization sponsored by the Alameda County Dental Society. She raised over $6000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society in honor of her father by running the Maui Marathon in 2002.
