Dr. Timothy R. Gailey
A native of Tucson, Dr. Tim Gailey developed a passion for excellence and a desire to serve others early in his life. In 1990, he orchestrated, organized and led much of the service and volunteer work for the Summer Games of the Pima County Special Olympics. He achieved the rank of Eagle Scout at the age of 14, participated in numerous community service events and graduated Valedictorian of Rincon High School. He later went on to attend the University of Arizona, graduating Magna Cum Laude with a bachelor of Arts in Spanish Linguistics and a minor in Chemistry. Within this time frame, he dedicated two years to full-time missionary service, proselyting to the people of Puerto Rico in the name of Jesus Christ.
In the professional realm, Timothy Gailey received his dental degree from Oregon Heath & Sciences University School of Dentistry, pursuing advanced coursework beyond the dental requirements in endodontics (root canals), cosmetics, and implants.
He has continued that educational pattern as a doctor and was recently given his Fellowship Award from the Academy of General Dentistry. This level is only achieved by 7% of dentists nationally and recognizes both his commitment and competence in completing many more times the required levels of coursework in all the disciplines of dentistry and passing a rigorous examination.
Dr. Gailey stands out among dentists as one who offers nearly all dental services within his office. Dr. Gailey places and restores implants, removes impacted wisdom teeth, places porcelain veneers, crowns and fillings, makes beautiful dentures, performs advanced gum therapies, does painless root canals, loves children’s dentistry, and offers nearly every other procedure. He also performs sedation dentistry for both adults and children, providing a calm and relaxing experience while the dental work is performed.
Dr. Gailey loves families. He has 13 children of his own and has been married to Clarisa, also from Tucson, for over 18 years now. The two of them have worked hard to create a loving home, fostering other children, at times, when they were in need.
In his free time, Dr. Gailey loves the outdoors, running and playing basketball. He recently completed the Phoenix half marathon with his daughter. He loves playing with his kids and fixing up their old house with his wife. He also enjoys weekly service in his church and participating in community events.
Dr Gailey is an outstanding member of the American Dental Association (ADA), Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), Arizona Dental Association (AZDA), and the American Dental Society of Anesthesiology.
