Dr. Gilday is a perfectionist and I'm glad! I needed to have a front incisor crown replaced because of its age and coloring. I was always somewhat embarrassed to smile because it looked like a crown. I was assured that I would be happy with the replacement. He sent the photos to the lab and they created a match, unfortunately it was not perfect, so he sent it back until it was perfect. Now after 20 years I have a tooth that looks and feels like my original. I'm pleased with the entire staff and experience.
“When I had the opportunity to help change the lives of underserved people overseas, it completely shifted my perspective on dental care. To me being a dentist is about being responsible to really help people better their lives. That’s my mission.”
