Dr. Gorrell's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Gorrell "Born in California, Dr. Gorrell was raised in the metropolitan Chicago area – moving to the Midwest when he was in junior high school. He attended the University of Iowa on a swimming scholarship for his undergraduate studies. In 1979, he received his Doctor in Dental Surgery from Northwestern University's Dental School, whereupon he decided he'd had enough of Chicago winters. Later that year, cosmetic dentist J. Brent Gorrell D.D.S. established his Mountain View, California practice – serving Palo Alto and Sunnyvale. Since then he has remained committed to staying at the cutting-edge of the ever-changing field of dentistry. He fancies himself as a "continuing education junkie", as he's addicted to continuing education (C.E.) courses. Dr. Gorrell has remained dedicated to being one of Northern California's finest cosmetic dentists. J. Brent Gorrell, D.D.S. has also been active in several esteemed organizations including the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (11 year member)), the L.D. Pankey Institute, and the Academy of General Dentistry (in which he has earned his mastership). Dr. Gorrell is also a member of the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, the American Academy of Craniofacial Pain, and the International Association for Orthodontics. He's also an associate instructor for the Northern California Institute of Cosmetic Dentistry."

My exam and teeth cleaning went very smoothly. Everything is always comfortable. They are careful to use latex-free gloves for me sine I am allergic to latex. Dr. Gorrell spends time with you. They explained Invisalign to me so that I could make a good decision.
