Meet Dr. Gould

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. 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.

Treating Fearful Patients

If you experience dental anxiety, you are not alone. A significant number of patients entering our office express some level of anxiety when it comes to dental treatment. We help alleviate those fears by offering sedation dentistry.

Both nitrous oxide and oral sedation reduce the anxiety associated with dental treatment. Sedation also supports anesthetic, making it easier for you to get numb for your procedure. It is also useful for patients with a strong gag reflex. We make dental treatment possible for all patients!

Expanded Dentistry Treatments

In many dental offices, in order to have root canal treatment, extractions, or dental implant placement, you need a referral to a specialist. At Modern American Dentistry, we perform most procedures in the comfort of our dental office without the need for a referral. This offers our patients continuity of care and the comfort of familiarity they get from staying in their regular dental office.

Are you experiencing a dental emergency? Call us as soon as possible so we can restore your comfort and health! We welcome new patients, even on an emergency basis.
