More about Dr. Dale M Gallagher
Dale M. Gallagher, D.D.S., P.A. Dr. Gallagher has practiced Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Austin, Texas since 1984. One of the only oral surgeons in central Texas to complete two years of residency training in anesthesiology. Dr. Gallagher feels that, “As oral surgeons, we perform a lot of surgery in our office, and I wanted to be optimally prepared to offer a full range of pain control and anesthesia to my patients. We can provide safe, effective anesthesia for people of all ages, from small children to the elderly. It is normal for people to be apprehensive about surgery, so comprehensive anesthesia training and experience benefits everyone, particularly very nervous patients.” Dr. Gallagher was born in Riverside, California. Growing up, his father served in the U.S. Air Force, so his family traveled and lived in many states and countries, including Hawaii and the Philippines. Dr. Gallagher attended Heidelberg University in Tiffin, Ohio where he graduated with an undergraduate degree in Biology. He received his doctorate in dentistry from New York University College of Dentistry in New York, New York in June 1977. Following this, he completed his first year of anesthesiology residency at The Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, New York in June 1978. His second year of fellowship training in anesthesiology was completed at the John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth, Texas in June 1979. Dr. Gallagher then finished his oral and maxillofacial surgery residency at the Parkland Memorial Hospital in Dallas, Texas in June 1982. During his residency training he also performed clinical research, co-authored many scientific papers, presented lectures at many national scientific meetings, and contributed to textbooks about the correction of facial deformities, as well as other topics. Dr. Gallagher served as a lecture/surgeon to the Australian and New Zealand Societies of Surgery in Melbourne, Australia where he demonstrated reconstructive surgery. He also donated his surgical skills performing cleft lip and palate operations in Guatemala City for the non-profit “Heal the Children” project and also took part in the Honduras Medical Mission in Tegucigalpa, Honduras. Following his residency training, he enjoyed private practice and taught medical students and residents at the Brown University Medical School and hospitals in Providence, Rhode Island. A year later he declined the opportunity for a teaching position with private practice opportunities in Rhode Island to pursue his long time goal of living near his family and practicing oral and maxillofacial surgery in Austin, Texas. Dr. Gallagher is a Diplomat of the American Board of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, a Fellow of the American Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeons (AAOMS), a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), Texas Dental Association (TDA) and Capital Area Dental Society (CADS). Dr. Gallagher has also been featured in Good Housekeeping, Women's Day, and Redbook magazines. He received the Super Dentist distinction in 2004 and 2005 for Texas Monthly and Top Dentist in 2007 and 2008 for Austin Monthly. He has also been nominated for Texas Dentist of the Year. Dr. Gallagher has devoted his professional career to all aspects of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, with special interests in the treatment of adult and pediatric care of the jaws and facial structures, wisdom teeth, TMJ disorders, dental implants, trauma/injuries, and reconstruction. To keep abreast of the latest developments in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, he has always exceeded the continuing education requirements of Texas. With his wife and four children, Dr. Gallagher enjoys an active family life. He remains involved in the local community as a Boy Scout Leader and in his church. At home, Dr. Gallagher loves constructing projects for the house and yard, tending to a small orchard, and raising honeybees. In fact, we even have a flower garden and bird feeders in the backyard of the oral surgery office.
