Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Jean R. from Youngsville, NC (Source: Yelp)


Awesome dentist. Switched to Dr. Galligan after being annoyed with the privious dentist assistant being rough with our teeth. EVERYONE in this office is great from the front staff to the actual dentist himself! Super great with the kids AND they let you actually go back with the kids. Had one dentist who forbade parents to go back with the kids (my daughter, age 2 at the time came out with a face, red from crying and told me one of the other kids had fallen out of the chair!) Couldn’t get myself away from that one fast enough. You’ll never have that kind of problem here though.

Dr Galligan is the best! He does great work. His wife Vicky who manages the front desk is wonderful as well! All the staff is amazing! They really take the anxiety out of going to the dentist. Been to a couple of big dentist groups that have multiple offices. You never know who is going to treat you. At Galligan Family Denistry, they are very personable and they really make you feel like you matter! So glad I was referred to them by a friend who is a patient there as well!

Dr. Galligan and his staff are very friendly, will laugh with you, yet remain very professional. With other dentists, my hands would be clenched just during a cleaning. The staff understood my anxiety level and worked with me, and now I am quite relaxed during the process. I no longer dread my dental visits. I have recommended my friends to Dr. Galligan.

I just recently switched to Galligan Family Dentistry. Everyone there is not only professional and knowledgeable….they are friendly, as well! The atmosphere is extremely pleasant and comfortable. I am happy to recommend Galligan Family Dentistry to both family and friends. Thank you for such a great experience! Sincerely, Gayle

Truly a family dentistry. Dr. Galligan and his wife, Vicki, are always caring and helpful. I have twin boys, both with braces, and they are coming along great. The rest of the staff is amazing as well. I like that they do everything, I don’t have to hop around from orthodontist to a regular dentist. They take care of every dental need.

Tina M. from Raleigh, NC (Source: Yelp)


I really enjoy going to Dr. Galligan’s office. The staff and Dr. Galligan are always warm and inviting. My daughter is 4 and they have been patiently working with her over the years to ensure she is comfortable and never has a negative dental experience. My visits are always pleasant as well. Definitely the best dental office I have been to in a long time.

Karen S. from Zebulon, NC (Source: Yelp)


Staff has been very personable, kind, flexible, and professional. I recently changed dentists because I felt that I was not getting the service and attention I needed. I was surprised at how thorough my exam was. I received more information about my teeth with my initial visit with Dr. Galligan than in the many years at the other office I used to go to. I wish I would have made the change sooner.

Dr. Galligan and his team are super friendly and very, very helpful. After almost being extremely overcharged at another dentist Dr. Galligan helped me tremendously by making a much more reasonable assessment. I really appreciate his approach and the treatments are always pain-free. 100% recommendation.

Had my six month cleaning done today, 5-2-18, by Hope. She did a great job. Erica was very pleasant as she brought me to the room. Vickie (office manager) was wonderful, as always. She is so competent to make sure information is all up to date, and gets my next exam scheduled with ease. And of course, Dr. Galligan is fantastic. My husband and I have been patients for almost 10 years and will continue!

Andrew A. from Raleigh, NC (Source: Yelp)


The staff is timely, pleasant, accommodating and they do their work very well. I went to the same dentist from my first visit as a child until about 20 years of age who was a family friend: those visits were wonderful. Galligan Family Dentistry treats me just like that now. Baring any major change, they have my business indefinitely.

A colleague referred me to Dr. Galligan’s office (Galligan Family Dentistry). These people are located in Wakefield, technically Raleigh, but you could spit out your mouthwash and it would land firmly on Wake Forest soil. I started seeing Dr. Galligan about two years ago. A few observations: 1. Location. Location. Location. This office is extremely nice and in a nice area, convenient to anyone working in Wake Forest or North Raleigh. A visiting dental hygienist doing my cleaning said that she’d never worked in such a state-of-the-art office. Clean, modern and each room has a different theme, so that the back drop of your cleaning, or root canal has some variety. 2. These guys do a consultation before you go in for your cleaning. They’ll take rubber molds of your teeth and create custom whitening trays and provide dentist-quality whitening treatments free of charge. I’ve been told that this service costs $200+ elsewhere. 3. They take your picture. Why? This place is above the trend on technology. A photo appears next to every patient’s name on their flat screen monitors, so that they recall who you are before you arrive. In other words, you’re not just patient number 458. Dr. Galligan noted that I’d changed my hair since my last cleaning on my last visit. I thought that added personalization really made them a bit more pleasant. 4. Nice hygienists. Let’s face it. These are the people that you spend all your time with. Right? The hygienists at Dr. Galligan’s office are very nice. I’ve never left there in pain, with bleeding or aching gums or teeth. They’re gentle but effective and can answer a variety of questions. 5. Dr. Galligan is very personable and down-to-earth in his mannerisms. You don’t feel like you’ve gone to the creepy dentist guy (i.e. Steve Martin in Little Shop of Horrors). 6. Nice receptionist/staff. Dr. Galligan’s wife works in the office, along with a few other very friendly ladies. 7. New patient enrollment was simple and easy- everything was online and could quickly be faxed over. 8. They accept most insurance 9. The only spoiler- they’re a bit pricey. For some reason, My insurance didn’t quite cover a few things, despite the fact that my plan offers two free cleanings (I had overages for x-rays and for a filling). I’ve referred four people to Galligan Family Dentistry and they’ve all thanked me and shared their happy dental stories. Smile folks.

The staff is the best and Dr. Galligan is a trustworthy and knowledgeable dentist/orthodontist. The only place my family will go to. The office is always so clean and my kids actually like going to their visits! My daughter is terrified of Doctors but the staff treats her so well here that she no longer has any fears.

Every time I visit I am impressed not only by the exceptional care of Dr. Galligan, but also by his kind, caring staff. From the friendly receptionist to the hygienist, everyone goes out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and well cared for. The number one thing I appreciate about them? Their honesty! I never feel like I am being taken advantage of, or pushed to spend money where it isn’t needed, something I sadly can’t say about other dentists we tried in the area. Thank you, Galligan Family Dentistry, for going above and beyond in every facet of your practice!

Every employee we encountered was friendly and professional. This is a wonderful place for tweens and teens to go – both my daughters were comfortable and relaxed during the entire cleaning process. The treatment plans were well explained, scheduling is quick and easy, and pricing is competitive for the area. Highly recommend!

Been a patient of Galligan’s for about two years now and very pleased with the team. For the first time today Dr. G provided services beyond the “routine” due to a broken tooth. I was very impressed by his technique and technology. What in my previous experiences has been a very uncomfortable procedure was by far the “least uncomfortable” of any I’ve had. Erica the dental assistant was great )…..recommend the practice.

It amazes me to hear about people, that are afraid to go to the dentist! Dr. Galligan, and his Staff, are the nicest, gentlest, most caring group of dental professionals, that I have encounteted in my 55 years! I enjoy my appointments greatly, and even look forward to them- crazy as that may sound!! Great People!!

Dr. Galligan and his team continue to over exceed my expectations of a dentist experience. I love going to the dentist. I usually have Erin clean my teeth, but today Brittany cleaned them and did just as awesome of a job! 🙂 I highly recommend coming to Galligan Family, as I will be going here for a very very long time.

Was in on Thursday 4.26 and was assisted by Susan. This was the BEST cleaning I’ve had in over 20 years. While the others have been good – this young woman took it to the next level, she got right down to business and I was very pleased. The staff here is always great to work with and Susan was on her game. Thanks

My family and I have been going to Galligan Family dentistry for years. Dr. Galligan is the best dentist I have ever had- he is friendly, kind, informative, attentive, and always does a great job. The dental hygenists at the practice are also very kind and friendly and provide thorough cleanings with no discomfort. The waiting room and exam rooms are very clean, modern, and spacious. When I moved away for school, I went to a local dentist that recommended me thousands of dollars of unnecessary procedures and would not treat me until I had them done. Vicki (the practice manager) went above and beyond to help me schedule an appointment for a weekend when I could fly home, and the flight was certainly worth the trip! I would 100% recommend Galligan Family Dentistry!

Ciani J. from Durham, NC (Source: Yelp)


Since I began with Dr. Galligan and Galligan Family Dentistry I have been amazed with the care I have received from Dr. Galligan and his staff. I have very bad anxiety and Dr. Galligan was and has always shown patience in explaining and performing his procedures. He is very down to earth and makes you feel very comfortable while in his chair. Kudos to Dr. Galligan, Erin and Vicky for your overwhelming and sincere kindness. I have and will continue to recommend friends and family to Dr. Galligan!

Judith H. from Wake Forest, NC (Source: Yelp)


Wonderful!! I am so afraid of dentists and Dr. Galligan and his staff are aware of my anxiety and do everything they can to alleviate my stress. They are all friendly, kind, and really appear to care about my needs.  Dr. Galligan shows me my x-rays and discusses my teeth with me.  He spends as much time as I need to discuss and talk with me.  I love Galligan Family Dentistry!!!

Cindy S. from Raleigh, NC (Source: Yelp)


Going to Dr. Galligan has been a wonderful and painless experience……..his integrity, skill and his sincere concern for me as a patient are one-of-a-kind. Dr. Galligan explains all of your options to you and makes sure you are receiving the very best care. Additionally, his staff is awesome……..they are all so very friendly and organized, making everything run very smoothly. Dr. Galligan and his staff make you feel like you are part of a their family. I’m very lucky to have found the Galligan Family Dentisty team and would absolutely HIGHLY recommend them!!

This was my first visit to Dr Galligan Family Dentistry. Just moved here from Florida and was looking for a new Dentist. I went in for a Comprehensive Exam. I also had Professional Deep Cleaning. Dr Galligan and his Staff are top notch and did an excellent job. Everyone there starting with Victoria and the other Ladies at the front desk make you feel at home. I would highly recommend this Dentistry.

Had family going here for years, always first class service. Recent visit with Hope was great and Dr. Galligan, Vicki and staff are awesome as always. They use top of line equipment and methods, always get it right the first time. I don’t like going to the dentist, but it is always a pleasure with Galligan group.

Debbie G. from Raleigh, NC (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Galligan’s office makes going to the dentist a pleasant and enjoyable experience. Office staff is super friendly, hygienist is great and Dr. Galligan himself is awesome! He is up to date on everything and goes out of his way to make sure the patient is comfortable. I had to have a cavity filled and I was given a set of headphones and got to pick a Pandora station to listen to in order to drown out the sound of the drill. I am usually picky about doctors and always second guess whether there is someone better out there. I have never and will never second guess using Dr. Galligan’s Family Dentistry!

Aj C. from Raleigh, NC (Source: Yelp)


I recently went to Galligan’s because I had moved close by and wanted a second opinion on a jaw problem I had been having. Other dentists had told me that there was nothing they could do, but Dr Galligan took the time to examine me, and clearly lay out steps that we could take to correct the problem. The staff was very friendly and seemed genuinely interested in ME! Thank you for all of your hard work!

Eufrancis M. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Lo escribo en español para todos la comunidad latina que como yo no dominamos bien el ingles, el personal es muy amigable y sobre todo con una bella sonrisa. Me sentí muy cómoda. Se tomaron el tiempo para explicarme con detalle cada paso. Las manos del Dr. Son muy suaves y su actitud muy profesional Los recomiendo con toda confianza Eufrancis

I’ve never been the type to suffer from dentist anxiety, but I have the feeling that the staff at Dr. Galligan’s office is in a position to encounter those folks on a daily basis… and to completely change their mind about dental appointments. There is not a single person in the office that does not make you feel warm and welcome, and everyone really makes a point to get to know you as a person, not just a patient. The office is lovely and soothing, and I’m sure the new location will be even more spa-like. 5 out of 5. Hands down, the best dental office I’ve ever been to.

I just moved to the area from California and I was very nervous about finding a new dentist. Dr. Galligan and his team put my mind at ease. The facilities are clean, new, and visually pleasing. The people working there are so friendly and personable. They make you feel like you have known them for years. Dr. Galligan was absolutely amazing with my 3 year old daughter (the hygienist too). They were so great, that my daughter is excited to go back. I just went for my cleaning and I couldn’t be more pleased. I highly recommend Dr. Galligan and his amazing team for both adult and pediatric dentistry.

Eric C. from Wake Forest, NC (Source: Yelp)


Galligan Family Dentistry is excellent. We have been going there for about 4 years now. Our son just had his first dental appointment with Dr. Galligan about a month ago. He was very nervous and did not want to go but they made him feel comfortable and he actually loved the experience. The front desk staff is friendly and helpful. The dental hygienists are wonderful and are very gentle. Dr. Galligan is great and is personable and easy to talk to. I highly recommend Galligan Family Dentistry.

I have been a patient of Dr. Galligan for five years. He is by far the best dentist I have ever had and his staff is by far the most professional staff I have experienced. They make you feel very welcome and help to alleviate the normal fear of dentists most of us have. I would highly recommend Dr. Galligan to anyone looking for an outstanding dentist. I am moving out of the area. Dr. Galligan has been my dentist for the past few years. I will certainly miss him and his wonderful staff.

I’ve been going to Dr. Galligan for ten+ years, and I’ve never been disappointed. Dr. Galligan is always on the cutting edge of the latest technology. The office staff is pleasant, and the hygienists are always pleasant and thorough. I can’t imagine trusting my dental health needs to anyone other than Dr. Ryan Galligan.

I love this Dentistry. The staff at this place are so friendly and courteous. They will take their time to ask any questions that you may have. As you go inside, they have free water bottles and great coffee; when you leave they provide you with condiments—toothbrush, mouthwash, floss, etc. The head dentist itself is very friendly; a realist to me. I personally recommend people to come to this Dentistry. You won’t be disappointed.

Dr Galligan takes extra time to insure quality work and a perfect bite before you leave. I feel like he is in the room with you when its your turn unlike some dentist that are juggling many jobs at one time and they walk away and leave you with your mouth wide open wondering if they are ever coming back. Vicki and the entire staff are very attentive and customer friendly I would highly recommend Galligan Family Dentistry.
