Our goal is for you to leave our office with a memorable and enjoyable dental experience, which is why our welcoming and compassionate staff will do everything they can to make you feel right at home.
Dr. Goodman and his staff value our patient relationships and make it our priority to deliver gentle compassionate care to each person we see. We work hard to make you feel at ease by providing exceptional care in a relaxed, convenient atmosphere. We strive to develop lifelong relationships with our patients, by combining the latest dental techniques with a professional and experienced staff. The result is a beautiful, healthy smile that lasts a lifetime.
We also believe that patients need to have sufficient information to make educated decisions about their oral health, treatment options and choice of a dentist. We've developed this website as an extension of our practice, to serve as an easy-to-use and convenient resource for our patients. With just a few clicks, you can find helpful facts about the services we provide, our credentials and office policies. You can also find directions to our office, access patient forms or request an appointment.
We look forward to caring for you and your family's dental needs.
Dr. Goodman firmly believes that the teeth Mother Nature gives us are the best. He believes in maintaining the natural teeth for as long as possible (hopefully a lifetime), and if treatment is required, being as conservative as the situation will allow.
Dr. Goodman's practice philosophy is simple...treat people with respect and honesty, and do quality work. He believes it is his responsibility to let patients know any problems they may have, and then give them the options to treat each particular problem. This includes fairly presenting all of the advantages and disadvantages of each choice. Giving the cost in time, money and tooth structure of each option, as well as all the benefits and risks of a given procedure. All this needs to be supplied so that the patient may make the best informed decision on treatment for them.
We also respect people's valuable time, never double-book patients, seeing only one patient at a time. For this reason, barring an emergency, we almost always run on time. This is how we prefer to be treated, and so it is how we treat others...rather simple, but unfortunately found all too rarely in our society.
