Professional statement

Born and raised in Germany, he attended his dental education (1990- 1996) in one of Europe's top dental schools, the University of Aachen. He finished his studies and doctorial thesis in Germany with great honors “Magna cum Laude” where he achieved his degree of Dr. Med. Dent. (DMD.) Dentists in Germany are trained in all categories of dentistry; therefore dentists are able to treat patients for extractions, root canals, reconstructive dentistry and dental surgery. Although trained in all categories of modern dentistry, his main interest always lied in the field of cosmetic and reconstructive Dentistry (prosthodontics). After working in, Switzerland, London and Germany for several years in the department of prosthodontics and reconstructive dentistry, he immigrated to Los Angeles in 1998. He took the California Dental Board at UCLA and received his second degree as a Dr. of Dental Surgery (DDS) with highest grades. Furthermore, he participated in the "Advanced Education in Prosthodontics" post graduate program at USC and the "Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) program at UCLA. Both programs as well as many post doctoral courses in cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry give him advanced knowledge and hands on skills in these great fields of modern dentistry. He has lectured internationally in Paris, Germany and London about cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry. He has been featured in many articles and interviews and was voted best dentist and Top Dentist 2009 and 2010 by his peers and Consumer Research Group, USA.

The treatment was good but pricey that's why I completed it in another place. The office didn't go with me through all my expenses. But what I didn't like the most was the feeling it's a mass production factory. You're notsitting in a separate room, there are a lot of other patients and doctor is switching between them.

What a fantastic doctor, great offices, and very fast. We're all busy, and he got me in and out in less than an hour for a veneer on my tooth that chipped. Highly recommend Dr. Goodman.

Had another great experience with Dr. Goodman. He is gentle and caring and has great bedside manners. He has a special "vibrator "when giving injections, I was so focused on that thing, that I did not even feel the injection atall . I guess that was the purpose . Awesome .

I'm sure Dr. Goodman is a good Dentist but, he does not do silver fillings and believes in a holistic approach to dentistry which is not for me. When I made the appointment, I had asked for a cleaning as wellbut that was not scheduled or mentioned. I also thought the cost was somewhat high.

Incredible results in cosmetics I just had my veneers done, redone that is after a “celebrity” dentist made them just a month ago. When I met my friend Iris, I asked her “Wow your smile is beautiful, who is your dentist”and her answer was Dr. Goodman in Beverly Hills. When I met him for my first appointment, he was very busy yet spent about 20 min with me. He explained how he would make my teeth look different from what I had. He was very respectful towards the other dentist and did not critique his work at all. Contrary, he actually asked me to keep them because they may “grow on me”, like I would get used to them. But I already had made up my mind. He showed me actual veneer cases from his patients, that he was supposed to deliver that afternoon, and I really liked his approach to dentistry. I asked a lot of questions and he was very patient until about 20 minutes into the consult, he then was getting short and asked me to think about it. I realized he was busy and I could not expect more from a “free consultation”. So his secretary came in, very classy and professionally and gave me the treatment details and cost. To my surprise, it was less than I had paid just one month before, even at their highest “tier”, as she explained it. Different labs have different levels of detail. Fast forward. I came back, it took about 2 weeks and my veneers were delivered and they are gorgeous from the tip to the bottom part. I cannot have been more exited about my (second) choice, Dr. Joseph Goodman, lol. I now use Dr. Goodman for all my routine check ups and hygiene appointments. Dr. Goodman, you are my hero!
