Joel Gould, DDS
Ongoing advancements in science, technology, and understanding of the human body ensure that dentistry is an evolving field of medicine. In his 25 years as a practicing dentist in Canada and the United States, Dr. Joel Gould has been at the forefront of this evolution.
Dr. Gould launched a dynamic new practice concept, which he calls Modern American Dentistry. Begun at his flagship Manhattan Beach office in California, it has expanded to his practices in Woodland Hills and Santa Monica.
At Modern American Dentistry, Dr. Gould advances a straightforward and innovative approach to modern dental practices in an environment that is consistently comfortable and effective for his patients. His dental teams provide general and cosmetic dentistry and a broad range of comprehensive oral medical care.
He uses this new practice philosophy to embrace the dramatic evolution happening in dental care and treatment. “I created Modern American Dentistry to show people that the practice of dentistry in 2016 can be a common sense, organized system that ensures all patients receive appropriate and timely treatment,” he says.
An example of Dr. Gould’s innovative approach is a collaboration with Dimitriy’s Dental Studios in Glendale, Calif., to create the “Supermodel Veneer,” part of his Instant Smile Makeover and Instant Pageant Makeover processes. He has developed several other cosmetic dental products. In addition, Dr. Gould has completed training in the art, science, and application of Botox and Juvéderm facial fillers from top Beverly Hills plastic surgeons. Now his patients have options for a one-stop solution for dentofacial esthetic and anti-aging treatments for the ultimate Perfect Smile Makeover.
A native of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, Dr. Gould graduated from the University of Western Ontario in 1991 with a Doctorate in Dental Surgery. In Ontario, he joined forces with the government to provide on-site dental care and treatment to elementary school children in underserviced areas. He also established a dental clinic in a rural Ontario community.
Subsequently, Dr. Gould operated a practice in Vancouver, British Columbia, for 10 years before relocating to California in 2001. He has continued his work with children as a volunteer with the Children’s Dental Center in Inglewood in the Los Angeles area.
In addition to his practice, Dr. Gould writes a regular dental column, “The Smile Doctor,” for Pageantry Magazine, the leading publication in the pageant field, which is distributed in fifty-two countries. His informative and entertaining segments on modernizing dentistry have been seen on network TV, including FOX, NBC, ABC, and CBS. He also recently authored a book, The Perfect Smile, and is currently hosting his own radio podcast “Get Your Smile On” with Dr. Gould, available on iTunes and SoundCloud.
