He is affiliated with several of the most prestigious dental organizations in the world such as:
Dr. Goodman was one of the first dentists in Germany using porcelain veneers in the early ’90s when veneers were not as commonly used due to limitations in adhesion and materials available at the time. Colleagues back then often dismissed Dr. Goodman’s efforts in achieving dental excellence in porcelain veneers as “unrealistic”, "short term", and "unpredictable", not knowing or understanding the full potential of veneers in cosmetic dentistry. Most of Dr. Goodman's veneers placed 20 years ago are still serving patients well. Of course some were replaced, mainly because what was considered a shade of white back then is not white enough today.
Dr. Goodman’s patients include dentists, physicians, celebrities, a respected TV anchor, models, and beauty pageant contestants. He is chosen as the dentist who treats guests of the famous Dr. Phil Show, former and current Playmates, and patients from all walks of life who either want to improve their smile or enhance their overall dental health via dental prevention, maintenance and prophylaxis. Dr. Goodman has been featured in several magazines and newspaper articles and has received several awards and certificates.
A completely satisfying smile makeover requires a dentist with years of hands-on experience and know-how, as any dentist will tell you. Each patient is different and unique. As such, the dentist must be trained extensively in the field of Gnathology, full mouth occlusion (bite) analysis, centric relation, and temporal mandibular joint (TMJ). Due to his background in prosthodontics (complex reconstructive, restorative, and implant dentistry), Dr. Goodman is able to perform complicated and difficult cases of partial and full mouth reconstruction, placements of the most beautiful “natural” or “Hollywood” type porcelain veneers.
Dr. Joseph Goodman is also active in the world of beauty and is a judge for the Miss Newport Beach, Miss Corona Del Mar, Miss Beverly Hills and Miss Malibu pageants. He has the privilege of treating the "crowned queens" like their own cosmetic dentist.
