Learn more about Dr. Woo and Dr. Gallaher below!

Dr. Philip Woo

I was born in New York City, but raised for most of my life in Ebensburg after my father accepted a position as an economics professor at St. Francis University. My mother was the Director of Social Service at the Ebensburg Center. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Pittsburgh with a BS in Biology in 1979, and the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine in 1983. I completed a General Practice Residency from Montefiore Hospital in 1984, and received my Fellowship and Mastership Degrees from the Academy of General Dentistry.

I am a member of American Dental Association and Academy of General Dentistry. Former President of the local dental society, and board member of the Pa. Academy of General Dentistry.

My current hobbies include: golf, skiing, working out, spending time with my family. I have been an active member of my community throughout my entire life. Current member of the Ebensburg Recreation Board, YPCC Non Profit Board, and past coach of Bishop Carroll H.S. track and football teams, along with many youth sports teams over the years.

I chose General Dentistry because I had a desire to help people with a career that I would enjoy both personally and professionally, and I am lucky that I still feel the same today.

Dr. Luke Gallaher

Meet Dr. Luke Gallagher, a Forest Hills native with a love for the great outdoors. After high school, he attended the University of Pittsburgh and Penn State, graduating top of his class. Luke’s passion for dentistry led him to the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine, where he earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree in 2021. But he’s not all about teeth – when he’s not perfecting smiles, you’ll find him hunting, fishing, golfing, or hitting the slopes.

Post-graduation, Luke took on a residency at the Rocky Mountain VA to fine-tune his skills and learn from the best. With his academic prowess, dedication to patient care, and a zest for adventure, Luke Gallagher is set to leave his mark in the dental world and beyond.


I had a very good experience with Dr Woo and his staff yesterday. Everyone was very considerate of me and my comfort during my dental appointment. I would recommend this dental business to anyone of any age. I couldn’t be happier with both dentists in n this office.

Always friendly and caring. The staff here give the best care possible. Dr. Woo is a wonderful dentist. Caring and always asking how you’re doing. If you need a dentist, I recommend this practice highly. Great people!

I have severe anxiety about going to the dentist and Dr. Gallagher was so easy to talk to. He listened to everything that I was afraid of and he was very willing to take breaks when I needed them. When he was done he made sure that you were okay and even gave you a mirror to show you what he did. Excellent job Dr. Gallagher!!!
