Dr. Goodrick's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Goodrick "Dr. Dell Goodrick is a 1989 graduate of the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry in San Francisco, CA. He was born in Jackson Hole, WY, but moved with his family to Carpinteria (Santa Barbara area), CA when he was six years old. Dr. Dell, as he is affectionately called, was encouraged by his orthodontist, great uncle (a dentist), as well as his family to pursue dentistry. He was convinced that it was his destiny after one of the first compliments that he recalls getting from a girl was on his smile. "I'm a true believer in the power of the smile. There is nothing like seeing someone blossom into the uninhibited, self confident and positively glowing person that they truly are." Dentistry has not only become Dr. Goodrick's destiny, but his passion as well. He regularly exceeds the amount of continuing education required for licensing by three to four times. His commitment to pursue excellence in dentistry has led to him being awarded a Fellowship in both the Academy of General Dentistry (FAGD) and the Academy of Laser Dentistry (FALD). Dr. Goodrick's skills in Cosmetic dentistry have been widely sought (Mrs. California, Extreme Makeover Santa Clarita, Silver Medal AACD International Smile Design), and include an international clientele. Dr. Goodrick has trained for years with some of the best cosmetic dentists in the world, and he is currently an Accreditation Candidate of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry. Dr. Goodrick is also a community volunteer. He assisted in implementing and improving the very first urban healthcare volunteering event in Los Angeles, an effort started by Remote Area Medical (RAM) at the Forum in 2009. Through his affiliation with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry's Give Back A Smile charitable foundation, he has restored the smiles of two victims of domestic violence. "There is no more noble use of the talents that I have developed, nor any greater reward. It goes far beyond fixing teeth; it helps the person regain a piece of what they have lost. It's a very moving experience." In 1995 Dr. Goodrick created A Unique Dental Experience® , a redwood forest healing environment for the comfort and care of his patients. A healing environment is an approach to delivering patient care that truly places the patients needs first. It also provides a physical environment that reduces stress and is psychologically and physiologically supportive for patients and staff. This lends itself to be ideal for treating the anxious patient and Dr. Goodrick is licensed by the California dental board to provide adult oral conscious sedation. A Unique Dental Experience® was one of only two dental offices in North America selected to be in the inaugural issue of Health Care Designs magazine. Dr. Goodrick is a champion of complete health and wellness, educating his patients on the oral and systemic health link. He is a fitness enthusiast himself, regularly at the gym and out running. He has completed over a dozen marathons. Dr. Goodrick enjoys being outdoors, flying ultralights, live music, scuba diving and riding his scooter."
