With his lifelong ties to the Five Cities community, Dr. Giancarlo loves working with kids of the central coast and helping them to enjoy a lifetime of good oral health.

Raised in Arroyo Grande, Dr. Giancarlo is extremely grateful to have the chance to give back to his local community. He enjoyed being involved with community groups such as Scouting and youth sports while he grew up. During his high school years, he completed his Eagle Scout requirements and graduated with honors from Arroyo Grande High School.  After earning his bacherlor's degree from UC Davis, Dr. Giancarlo moved to North Lake Tahoe where he spent time coaching skiing for young children at a local resort, an inspiring job that helped him realize how fun working with children could be.

Subsequently, Dr. Giancarlo began dental school at the UCLA School of Dentistry and developed an appreciation for providing care to young patients. Upon graduation, he remained at UCLA and its medical center for an additional 27 months as a resident in the pediatric dentistry advanced specialty training program.

Dr. Giancarlo is a board-certified pediatric dentist and an active member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the California Society of Pediatric Dentistry. He is also a member of the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, and Central Coast Dental Society.

During his leisure hours, Dr. Giancarlo enjoys spending time outdoors, whether hiking, running, skiing, or just relaxing under a tree with his little boys and wife. His experience with youngsters before, during, and after his specialty training has given him an outlook and approach that he is most comfortable with. Please feel free to contact him if you have any questions or concerns about children’s oral health.
