Dr. Goodman Picture

Meet Dr Goodman:

Born and raised in Germany, Dr. Goodman earned his dental education (1990-1996) at one of Europe’s top dental schools, the University of Aachen. He finished his studies and doctoral thesis in Germany with great honors such as “Magna cum Laude” and achieved his degree of Doctor of Medical Dentistry (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, Dr. Goodman’s main interest has always been in the field of cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry (prosthodontics).

After working in Germany for several years in the department of prosthodontics and reconstructive dentistry, he immigrated to Los Angeles in 1998. Dr. Goodman took the California Dental Board at UCLA and received his second degree as a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS).

Furthermore, Dr. Goodman participated in the “Advanced Education in Prosthodontics” postgraduate program at USC and the “Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) program at UCLA. Both programs as well as many postdoctoral 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 Bahrain, Dubai, Germany and London about cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry. Dr. Goodman has been featured in many articles and interviews and was voted “Best Dentist” and “Top Dentist” for several years.
Dr. Goodman was featured on The Doctors TV show as well as featured on KTLA as the dentist for many beauty queens and beauty pageant contestants. He works alongside with the Dr. Phil show and frequently flies to Dubai for Cosmetic Dentistry.
