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.)

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.

Excellent care the doctor was top notch explained every detail I would highly recommend Dr. Goodman and his staff!
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 not sitting in a separate room, there are a lot of other patients and doctor is switching between them.
Great attitude, kind man and professional staff. I am happy to be able to use Dr. Goodman as my Dentist moving forward.
The best dentist I had so far. 5 stars all the way . Cleanings are great also by Dr Kim .
Fantastic. Actually cheered me up from my day at work.
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 at all . I guess that was the purpose . Awesome .
Great dentist and fabulous staff. Everything went smooth and they exceeded my expectations . Painless dentistry has finally arrived .... Thank you Dr G.
Had a cleaning and cosmetic dentistry done and it was an excellent experience. Very professional and I am very happy with the results. The staff is also awesome, just makes you feel very comfortable .
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 well but 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!
