Angela Palaiologou Gallis, D.D.S., M.S.
Dr. Palaiologou-Gallis received her D.D.S. in 1995 at the National University of Athens, Greece. She then worked for two years in private practice before she received a full scholarship from the National Scholarship Foundation of Greece to specialize in Periodontics. She received a certificate in Periodontics and a Master of Science Degree in Oral Biology in 2000 from Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center. She then returned to Greece where she practiced Periodontics for 7 years in private practice.
Her academic career began in 2007 at Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center. From 2007 until 2009 she was course director of the Intermediate Periodontics Course and was involved in didactic and clinical teaching of dental students and postgraduate residents. In July 2009, Dr. Palaiologou-Gallis was appointed Postgraduate Program Director in the department of Periodontics as LSUHSC. During the following nine years in that position, she was course director for 9 postgraduate periodontics courses and mentored 23 residents’ Masters in Dental Science research projects. During her tenure at LSUHSC, Dr. Palaiologou was elected president of the AADR-NO Chapter, president of the OKU honorary society and served in several institutional and departmental committees. She has served the American Academy of Periodontology as elected chair of the AAP Postdoctoral Directors Organization, member of the AAP education committee, and also serves as a CODA site visitor.
She is a Diplomate of the American Board of Periodontology and serves as an examiner for the ABP since 2014. Dr. Palaiologou-Gallis received the 2013 American Academy of Periodontology Outstanding Teaching and Mentoring Award. She is also a 2014 Fellow of the ADEA Leadership Institute. Dr. Palaiologou-Gallis has been the recipient of a CoBRE ARRA Supplement grant from NIH/NCRR in 2011 titled: “Links between periodontal disease and Body Mass Index”. She has also received commercial funding for several in vitro as well as clinical research projects. Her research interests include in vitro studies of fibroblast proliferation, attachment and migration on implant surfaces and bone graft materials and clinical implant research specifically: early loading of dental implants, stability of short implants and immediate versus delayed dental implant placement.
In November 2018, Dr. Palaiologou-Gallis joined the Department of Periodontics at UT Health San Antonio as Professor and Assistant Program Director. She is involved in clinical and didactic teaching of residents in Periodontics and is on the Master’s Thesis Supervising Committee of three postgraduate periodontics residents.
