Transforming Lives One Smile At A Time

Dr. Joseph Goodman, a highly accomplished dentist, was born and raised in Germany. He obtained his dental education at the prestigious University of Aachen, graduating with great honors and earning the title of Doctor of Medical Dentistry (DMD). His training in Germany covered all aspects of dentistry, allowing him to provide comprehensive care to patients, including extractions, implant surgery, reconstructive dentistry, and cosmetic dentistry.

While proficient in all areas of modern dentistry, Dr. Goodman’s passion lies in the field of cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry, particularly prosthodontics. After working in the Department of Prosthodontics and reconstructive dentistry in Germany, he relocated to Los Angeles in 1998. He pursued further education, completing the California Dental Board at UCLA and attaining his second degree as a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS).

To enhance his expertise in cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry, Dr. Goodman enrolled in the “Advanced Education” postgraduate program at USC and the “Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD)” program at UCLA. Through these programs and numerous postdoctoral courses, he acquired advanced knowledge and hands-on skills in these transformative fields of modern dentistry. He has shared his expertise on an international scale, delivering lectures in Bahrain, Dubai, Germany, and London on cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry. His accomplishments have been recognized through various accolades, including being voted “Best Dentist” and “Top Dentist” for several years.

His exceptional work has attracted media attention, earning him appearances on notable shows such as The Doctors and KTLA. He has become the go-to dentist for beauty queens and beauty pageant contestants, working alongside the Dr. Phil Show. Additionally, he frequently travels to Dubai to provide cosmetic dentistry services.

Dr. Goodman emphasizes the profound impact that a smile can have on someone’s life. He attests to witnessing the overwhelming emotions experienced by patients after receiving treatments like porcelain veneers. He explains, “If I say a smile can change someone’s life, it is not exaggerated… Veneers can change that.”

Dispelling a common misconception, he clarifies that cosmetic dentists are also skilled in general dentistry. He asserts that before becoming a cosmetic dentist, one must master the art of general dentistry, focusing on aesthetics, bite, comfort, and restorative aspects of smile makeovers. Dr. Goodman adheres to a philosophy of preserving natural tooth structure whenever possible, advocating for minimal tooth reduction in preparing porcelain veneers, crowns, and other dental restorations.

Despite the label of “celebrity dentist,” His approach remains inclusive, valuing patients from all walks of life. While seeing celebrities and famous personalities in his waiting room may be exciting, he emphasizes that every individual is important to his practice. His primary principle is prioritizing patient well-being, adhering to the “Do no harm” philosophy.

Dr. Joseph Goodman’s journey from Germany to Los Angeles has been marked by exceptional cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry achievements. His comprehensive training, advanced education, and commitment to preserving tooth structure have garnered him recognition and accolades within the field. With a genuine passion for transforming smiles and improving lives, Dr. Goodman’s impact extends far beyond his reputation as a “celebrity dentist” as he continues to change lives one smile at a time.
