I had minimum waiting time, and everyone was very friendly and professional. The doctor kept me informed during the procedure and is just awesome. Thank youH.S.
Made an appointment with the doctor after a friend highly recommended her. It was easy to check in despite current covid rules, the staff was super friendly, and the doctor thoroughly explained my xrays with me. The staff as a whole seem to really care about their patients. Would definitely recommend!K.J.
Shannon Galegher, D.D.S., is a General Dentist.
Raised on a farm in Eastern North Dakota, Dr. Shannon Galegher attended Minnesota State University Moorhead for an undergraduate degree in Health and Medical Sciences. While earning that degree, she also competed for the school’s varsity basketball team, a sport she continues to enjoy playing.

Outside of dentistry, Dr. Galegher enjoys spending time exploring what Colorado has to offer – skiing, hiking, and sampling the big city’s many attractions. And for a dentist, she has quite the sweet tooth! As a result, she enjoys baking both family recipes and new ones she comes across. But of course, everything in moderation. Dr. Galegher and the team hope to see you soon!”
