Complete Health Dentistry combines Oral Health with Medical Health and Wellness to ensure that a dental patient’s whole health is improved as much as possible through proactive dental care.
Your mouth is the gateway to the rest of your body. Inflammation in your mouth increases inflammation in your body.
This creates disease: High Blood Pressure, Diabetes, Stroke, Heart Attack, and Cancer are all inflammatory diseases.
Many of these diseases originate or are made worse by inflammation in the oral cavity.
Prevention is the best medicine, and the mouth is the best place to start. Healthy teeth and gums equal a healthier body, so getting your teeth and gums healthy reduces your risk for many life-threatening diseases.
Something as simple as blood pressure, a complete dental exam and a cleaning can help Dr. Galli identify and reduce potentially serious medical conditions that otherwise are hard to detect until you have more serious symptoms.

When you visit Dr. Galli’s Encinitas dental practice, you can expect to be treated with respect, honesty and integrity. The objective of every visit is to establish an understanding of your particular oral health needs and goals, evaluate the potential treatments and select the most appropriate option.
An oral health visit at a Complete Health dental office is unique. Blood pressure and medical history review help Dr. Galli and the hygienist understand your overall health as it relates to your oral health and the conditions in your mouth.
The dental hygienist will use professional instruments to measure the health of your gums and teeth, and she and Dr. Galli will determine how to best clean your teeth and restore your gum health.
Maintaining gum health is essential to oral and overall health. Dr. Galli treats patients that are at an increased risk of gum (periodontal) disease or that are experiencing early symptoms of gum disease. Once he has intervened with the appropriate therapy, he can stop the progression of the disease from causing further damage to the mouth’s structure.
We are proud of our welcoming atmosphere, comfortable setting, outstanding patient experience, team harmony and Complete Health model
Occasionally, Dr. Galli finds that a tooth has developed a cavity and needs to be filled. After removing the decayed portion of the tooth and disinfecting the area, Dr. Galli uses a tooth-colored, mercury-free filling material to seal off the tooth and prevent bacteria from getting into the space. If the damage is more extensive, he may recommend placing another restoration, like a dental crown.
Born and raised in California, Dr. Galli graduated from UC San Diego before attending UCLA Dental School where he earned his doctorate. He has practiced dentistry in Encinitas since 1998. He and his wife have two children, now in college. He is very active in the local community, serving at church, on various committees, and through volunteering. In his spare time he enjoys surfing, golf, ocean kayaking, backpacking, and family game nights.
