Dr. Goodall has lived in North Carolina for most of her life, and has been a resident of Cary for many years. She earned a Bachelors of Science in Computer Science from NC State University in 1991, and went to work as a Software Engineer at IBM. While at IBM, she worked in both the Hardware and Software Divisions as a software developer, a project manager, and an Advisory Development Manager. During this time, she also completed a Masters in Engineering from NC State University. After a fulfilling career at IBM, she decided to pursue an interest in healthcare, and applied to dental school. Dr. Goodall completed her Doctorate of Dental Surgery at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and now continues to reside in Cary, where she can apply her strong problem-solving background to determining the best solution for each patient's smile. Dr. Goodall is a gentle and caring dentist, always interested in providing the best possible care for each patient she has the opportunity to serve. She is known for her friendly smile and happy demeanor. Recognizing that “doctor” means “teacher”, Dr. Goodall believes her role as educator of patients is the most important role she plays in the dental office. Dr. Goodall enjoys seeing patients of all ages, and feels most fully rewarded when she helps provide need-based dental care via opportunities such as the NC Missions of Mercy Free Dental Clinics for impoverished people throughout North Carolina, the NC Baptist Men's Dental Bus at local churches and the State Fair, and for locally sponsored orphans from around the world. Since Dr. Goodall recently gained a new sister-in-law from the Ukraine, she has a special place in her heart for a group of orphans sponsored by a local church, and provides dental care for several children from this area of the world. As a member of the American Dental Association, the Academy of General Dentistry, the Raleigh Wake County Dental Society, and the American Association of Women Dentists, Dr. Goodall regularly attends continuing education classes to keep up-to-date with the latest research and techniques so she can provide her patients with the best care possible. Dr. Goodall has for nearly 20 years been happily married to Bill Goodall, a Senior Electrical and Computer Engineer with Qualcomm. Together they reside in Cary Park with their 3 children: William, age 16, Ian, age 14, and Catherine, age 11. The Goodall's are active members of Christ the King Lutheran Church in Cary....See Less

Medical malpractice is issued when negligence by a doctor causes injury to a patient. For example, a doctor may improperly diagnose, treat or medicate outside the standard of medical care. The three types of malpractice are: a settlement, an arbitration award, or a judgment.
If my doctor has malpractice history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If your doctor has a malpractice claim, evaluate the information and determine if the action could potentially impact the quality of care you receive. Claim settlements and arbitration awards may occur for a variety of reasons, which should not necessarily reflect negatively on the doctor's professional competence or conduct. You may want to use this information to start a discussion with the doctor about his or her history and specific ability to provide healthcare for you.

What is a sanction or disciplinary action?
A sanction, also known as a disciplinary action, is an action taken to punish or restrict a doctor who has demonstrated professional misconduct. Sanctions may be imposed by a state medical board, professional medical licensing organization, or the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
If my doctor has sanction history, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a sanction, it does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor-quality doctor. Some sanctions are not related to medical care, and involve a doctor’s finances or administrative activities. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, we recommend that you evaluate the doctor’s sanction information and determine how severe or relevant you think the sanction cause and action were.
How far back does Healthgrades sanction history go?

0 Board Actions
No board actions found for the years that Healthgrades collects data.
What are board actions?
Board actions are non-disciplinary actions imposed upon a doctor based on a complaint investigation. A patient or medical colleague may file a complaint with that state medical board or professional licensing organization, which then investigates the complaint. Board actions are intended to ensure that a doctor is able to perform safe medical and health care tasks.
Types of non-disciplinary actions include an advisory letter, a corrective action agreement, a limitation or restriction on the medical or healthcare tasks a doctor can perform, or a voluntary agreement by the doctor not to practice. A board action can also include a termination of a corrective action agreement or voluntary agreement, which allows the doctor to return to full practice.
If my doctor has a board action, does that mean he or she is a poor-quality doctor?
If a doctor has a board action, it means he or she has had a non-disciplinary action imposed upon him or her. It does not necessarily mean that he or she is a poor quality doctor. Before you make any choices about changing your doctor, evaluate the doctor's board action information and determine how severe or relevant you think the cause and action were.
