Dr. Gagliardi was born and raised in Hermitage, PA. After undergraduate studies at the University of Pittsburgh main campus, Dr. Gagliardi was accepted to the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine following his Junior year of college. He was one of three students to gain early admittance to the Dental Medicine Doctoral program. Dr. Gagliardi believes education is a lifetime journey and has hundreds of hours of continuing education related to all aspects of dentistry.
After receiving his D.M.D. degree in 1994, Dr. Gagliardi came home to start his practice in Sharon, PA under the mentoring of Dr. W.D. Shellenberger. Two years later, Dr. Gagliardi assumed the entire practice and began building the practice he has today. During this time Dr. Gagliardi served as President of the Mercer County Dental Society. In 1998, another dentist retired and conveyed his patients to Dr. Gagliardi of which lead to the consolidation of the two offices to his current location in Hermitage, PA. Then an opportunity to open a second office in Greenville, PA as Dr. Cathy Owens left private practice and preferred that Dr. Gagliardi continue the excellent care of her patients.
Today, Dr. Gagliardi has become one of the largest dental practices in Mercer County, with two locations, open 5 days a week. It is through his caring attitude and professionalism with a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere that put him among the top of the local dental community.
