Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

TMichelle W. from Chelsea, AL (Source: Yelp)


Each day while going  to work I would pass by this dentist’s office. Today, I finally decided to call for an appointment. I called to see if they were taking new patients. An extremely warm and friendly voice said, “Yes, we are taking new patients. We love new patients! Welcome! We are glad to have you!” I was elated and pleasantly surprised because in recent times, people/organizations are not so friendly. Needlessly to say, that made my day. I found out her name is Cassandra. Next, once I arrive, a friendly,  smiling and welcoming young lady gave me a tour. I felt like a VIP! Lastly, and not least, my experience with my hygienist, Jennifer, was amazing! She was professional, knowledgeable, kind, and made me feel like I was family! The dentist was also kind and professional as well. Further, When I got to my room, I was greeted with a warm blanket, and a MASSAGE chair! Oh, la la!! See you in 6 months!

Yet again another great experience! The minute you walk in your are greeted with a warm welcome and from start to finish the whole thing is nice. From the calming environment of the rooms to the atmosphere. Kaitlyn and Maria were great. They were so sweet and they explained things to me so I understood what was happening, why, and what to do moving forward. One thing I like about this office is that you can tell they aren’t out to get you to spend a lot of money on pointless things or just for the hell of it. They go out of their way to make sure you’re taken care of for the long run and genuinely care about your dental hygiene and health!

Gooch Family Dental blew me away with their impeccable customer service. As soon as I walked through the door I was pleasantly greeted and attended to, plus their office is beautiful and so comfortable! I loved that with anything my dental hygienist found that needed correcting, or even a suggestion she made, a financial adviser would come back with a completed document listing the needed or suggested procedure, the cost, what my insurance covered, and what I would owe out of pocket. They would talk me through it and if I wished to move forward with anything listed, then I would sign my consent. Being young and only recently becoming independent from my parents insurance, this was such an incredible benefit I have not seen everywhere. The service I received from everyone within the office was 5 star, thank you!

The dentist I have used for the last 20 years, retired and closed his practice. I did some research, read reviews and made my decision to fo to Gooch Family Dental. Due to being busy with kids and life, I put off making and appointment And wnded up with an emergency. They got me in immediately and were so super kind and efficient. I was so theilled with the email about followup care from the procedure. Sometimes, it is so hard to remember all that is said. I highly recommend them and I must complement them on the new office. It is beautiful and very comfortable. The staff couldn’t be more amaxing.

Courtney is the best! All of the staff is friendly and accommodating. I am truly a difficult patient as going to the dentist causes me severe anxiety. From the very first appointment I was able to relax and be at ease. Gentle cleaning and no pain. I am still nervous, but that has nothing to do with this practice. They are amazing and I highly recommend!

Jamie S. from Birmingham, AL (Source: Yelp)


This was the best dental experience. The staff where so nice.I felt welcomed right away. I love how nice it is in the office so clean and pleasant to look at makes you feel at ease. The professionalism was amazing I felt great about the hole experience. I am exited I found some where that has a great dentist and staff! If I could give 10 stars I would!!!

Kelly C. from Birmingham, AL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Gooch and his team are excellent. They make you feel completely comfortable and make sure you know everything that is going on. Dr. Gooch and Dee are great at making what could be a very unpleasant procedure very pleasant. I have never had any complaints with Dr. Gooch or his team and I’d highly recommend them for any dental needs.  Also, the office is extremely clean and all appliances and equipment are top of the line.

I have never had a more enjoyable visit to a dentist. When I first got in the gave me a tour of the office it felt like I had just booked a fancy vacation. They have snacks and drinks for you as you wait and every room has tvs with beautiful ocean vistas. It doesn’t end there while I was waiting they brought me a gift bag and told me about their special prices where I could get an exam and x-rays for only $49 even without insurance. Of course the staff was super sweet and amazing and they go in depth about your teeth and break it down for you about what work needs to be done and why you need it. I can’t recommend this place more.

Absolute first class! The staff takes times to learn about the patient and his/her personal preferences. They take time to explain the procedures and also the payments. The practice supports local ministries through donations and also their time and service. They truly care about people and doing business the right way.

Jennifer B. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


My whole experience was absolutely wonderful! I was most impressed that the whole team got to know me as a person, and I wasn’t just another “number” like in some other offices. They asked me many times throughout my visit if I had any questions or needed anything to make my visit more comfortable. It also doesn’t even feel like a Drs office! I will definitely be coming back to this office!

Lisa A. from Wilsonville, AL (Source: Yelp)


The staff is friendly and the place is so clean and nice! They always have little giveaways to say “thanks” for choosing us…..This time I had to go in was an Emergency, so I called, was there within 5 minutes, and was getting xrays within 2 minutes. Amazing!………As a new patient (years prior) they had given me a goodie bag with lots of cool stuff! They really do go the extra mile!

There’s not too much to say about Gooch Dental because it is simply top-class and filled with high performing individuals. After you first walk in, they do the best they can to make you feel comfortable and also give you a tour of the building. Hope gave me my tour and was wonderful. There are many free refreshments that they offer for their guests as well. Rhonda was my dental hygienist and she is the sweetest person ever. She made sure that all the procedures I went through were comfortable and safe and also did a top-notch job with my teeth. Anna Brooke at the check-out desks was great as well. Hopefully I don’t travel too far away over the years because I would definitely like to make this location my main dentist office.

Christy S. from Birmingham, AL (Source: Yelp)


Always friendly and efficient service! Last night I had a crown fall off that had been put on by another dentist. Their office was closed on Friday’s so I left a message at Gooch to see if they could help. They called me back first thing in the morning and fit me in right off the bat. I appreciate it or else I would have gone the whole weekend without my tooth! They’re also very organized and you can tell everyone likes working there. Our family started using this practice last year and we would recommend them to anyone.

William T. from Old Fourth Ward, Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


First Impression: Office is very clean and well appointed with top of the line equipment. Staff was super friendly. When you are a new customer they will walk you around a tour of the office and services as well as you get a really nice water bottle gift. Once in the room: My dental hygienist took amazing care of me. She explained each step and what she was looking for and/or accomplishing. Had a cavity 🙁 When they went to work on my cavity they gave me a topical treatment before the injection. I have a very low pain threshold but after the topical treatment, I did not even feel the needle stick from the actual numbing shot. I did not feel anything, pain or otherwise while they worked. Great Dentist office, I will be a return customer.

Nick H. from Pelham, AL (Source: Yelp)


This place will absolutely change your mind about dentists. Dr Gooch and his staff are absolutely amazing. Such a fresh and personal approach to dentistry. I used to dread the dentist, now I look forward to My appointments. If you have a dentist that you are even a little unhappy with, give Dr Gooch and staff just one chance to wow you, you’ll never go back to your old dentist, guaranteed!!

Beverly G. from Birmingham, AL (Source: Yelp)


I have had several appointments with Gooch Dental, and I have been impressed with their caring professionalism each & and every time. The office is impeccably clean and they have all of the latest equipment. I feel good every time I leave their office. I would highly recommend Gooch Family Dental to anyone wanting a great Dental experience. Five stars!

Mary S. from Birmingham, AL (Source: Yelp)


I have been so impressed with Dr. Gooch and every person on staff!! The whole environment is very welcoming, and everyone goes out of their way to be friendly and informative. Dr. Gooch seems genuinely interested in his patients, and was great to work with! Two of his assistants I’ve met, Ashle and Dee, are very caring and really help put you at ease. Jenni is very helpful and easy to talk to when it comes to the financial side of things. I just had a crown put on, and she went over everything with me beforehand, which I really appreciated. It’s refreshing to have an open conversation about the finances, and not be left to wonder what you will owe afterwards. It is also really awesome that they are able to fit you for a crown, and put it on, in the same appointment! I also really liked the tv hanging above the dental chair. It played videos of pretty scenery, which had more of an impact on me than I would have expected. It was relaxing, especially when having a lengthy procedure done, to have something peaceful to watch! I also loved the nice water bottle I received during my first appointment – such a unique and healthy gift! I just can’t say enough great things! My experiences have been very positive, and I’d highly recommend Dr. Gooch’s office!

Amazing dental office! Been going for my implant process and regular check ups for several months now and the staff has always been professional, welcoming and accommodating. For almost two decades I have had to see several dentist for my dental needs so I’ve experienced many different dental offices and Gooch is by far the best. Just completed the last step for the implants here (while 31 weeks pregnant so that says a lot!!) and cannot stop smiling!! Gooch Family Dental will be our family dentist from now on! Highly recommended!

Tyler Tolbert (Source: Google)


I have never been so relaxed at the dentist before in my life! Everything about my experience was great, besides having to have a tooth pulled.they did everything they could to make that as pleasant as it could be though. I can’t express enough how lucky I fell to have found this dentist office. I would recommend everyone to go here!!!! Without a doubt!!!

April R. from Birmingham, AL (Source: Yelp)


I had the best experience at Gooch Family Dental! I usually do not like going to the dentist but, I felt at ease and super comfortable with the staff there. I will definitely recommend Gooch Family Dental! I think I have found my dental health home! Very warm hearted people! I can’t say enough and I am usually very hard to impress. Thanks Brittani, Dr. Gooch and all the warm hearted staff! -April R.

Dana M. from Birmingham, AL (Source: Yelp)


I love going to see the people at Gooch Family Dental. Best office I’ve ever been to. Everyone is super nice and helpful. My husband and son used to dread going to the dentist until we moved to Birmingham and started going to Gooch. If you are uneasy about your dental appointments, I suggest you try Gooch Family Dental. You won’t feel that way anymore.

Joanie S. from Trussville, AL (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going here for a decade. I love this practice so much. They are the absolute best. Today though they stepped it up another notch! Massaging chairs! I felt so spoiled with my warm blanket and massaging chair with their relaxing music (such as Jack Johnson) and beach scenes on the television. They really make you feel special.

Amy Todhunter (Source: Google)


I cannot say enough what a relief it has been finding these guys. The kindness and attention to each patient is absolutely incredible, and for someone like me that has severe anxiety (a lot of it being social anxiety about my teeth and dentists) it means the world and it makes a huge difference in a person’s life. I will be coming here from now on!

Kimberly Martin (Source: Google)


Absolutely the best experience I have had in a dental office! They combine care, comfort, and courtesy for the best spa dental experience! The dental chair massages and heated! Water is offered. The warm blanket was cozy. My blood pressure was taken! They are concerned about your total care! The facility is top notch! A serene atmosphere with screen savers of sandy beaches! The Dental Hygienist was friendly and attentive. The Dentist was gentle! From my phone call to make the appointment, until the time I left all involved created the best experience in dental care I didn’t know existed!

Lynette P. from Birmingham, AL (Source: Yelp)


Doctor Gooch gives the best care there is.  The office is spotless, the staff is always friendly and helpful, and they’re always available when you have a need.  They’re good people, with the best technology and skills in their field.  We’ve been going to Dr. Gooch since he opened his door, and will remain with him till we move or die.

Kevin M. from Hell, Norway (Source: Yelp)


What a great place! I have never been treated so well at any doctors office ever. I had some cosmetic issues and was very embarrassed but was put to ease by every staff member there. From the front desk to the doctors exam. I can’t say thank you enough for the help and complete attention paid to me. I feel like I have hope again. A huge thank you to everyone. I know I’ve found the right office finally.

Todd G. from Birmingham, AL (Source: Yelp)


Greatest experience I’ve ever had at a dentist’s office. I have never had such a wonderful experience at any doctor or dentist’s office in my life. I was so impressed with the dentists, the entire staff and the facility itself that I felt compelled to write this. I recently moved from NJ and happened to get a flyer in the mail from Dr. Gooch’s office. I hadn’t seen my dentist in NJ for a couple of years and needed to find one down here, so the timing was perfect. They got me an appointment the next day and when I got to their office, they gave me a tour. I’ve never been given a tour of a doctor or dentist’s office, but I can see why they do it. The office is a real showpiece – incredibly clean with the latest technology and amenities I’ve never seen in a dentist’s office. The staff was super friendly (maybe that’s just how it is in the South), Jenny was my dental hygienist and was amazing, very sweet and personable and extremely thorough. She explained everything she was doing and what she was looking for. After she was done, she brought in Dr. Scott Lafont who is supposed to be joining them full-time in August (he’s in the Air Force currently). Let me just say this…this guy is gifted. He replaced two veneers that had cracked. His hygienist, Dee, numbed my mouth, and then he gave me novocaine shots. I hate the needles and that pinch you feel when getting the novocaine shots, but I actually never felt a thing. The two of them worked on me for about an hour. There was never any pain at all. His work was amazing. He has a genuine passion for what he does that really comes through in his work. He explained everything as he did it. Ultimately, the proof is in the pudding (actually the mouth in this case). I couldn’t be happier. I should mention this. Before Dr. Lafont did his work, the finance manager came in to explain the costs. I was pretty sure she was wrong because it was so inexpensive. I do have insurance, but the same procedure in NJ would have cost me 10x the amount. I cannot recommend them enough.

Andie E. from Mid-City West, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Gooch is hands down one of the best dentist I’ve ever visited. The office is super clean and uses the newest technology available. I really like that I can go to one place for all my general dentistry needs, as well as more advanced procedures like root canals and same day custom crowns. It’s hard to pick a favorite assistant, they’re all great, but I’ve had Dee several times and she is very knowledgeable and skilled. Michelle the hygienist is amazing as well. I really can’t say enough great things about this place, they truly care about their patients and provide quality care and quality service. My entire family now goes to Dr. Gooch, and we actually enjoy going to the dentist again. Check them out!

Best experience I’ve ever had at a dentist! I was treated like royalty from the moment I arrived! Everyone was so friendly and helpful, and their new office is so plush and comfortable. This was far and away the most thorough cleaning and exam I’ve experienced. It is very obvious that everyone there, from the front desk personnel to the dentists, prioritize the client’s comfort and wellbeing. So glad I made this change!

Briton Bradley (Source: Google)


I am the quintessential terrified-of-the-dentist person. I arrived at the office in tears from the anxiety. As embarrassing as that was, the entire staff was gracious and patient. We took time to develop a plan that would help me feel comfortable getting much-needed work done that I had procrastinated on due to fear. The combination of their professionalism, education, and amenities for comfort (I used nitrous and did very well), made the experience actually pleasant. I really cannot recommend them enough if a phobia of the dentist if you’re issue. I look forward to working with them again.

Paige F. from Pleasant Grove, AL (Source: Yelp)


Hands down the best dentist office I’ve been too!! My husband, daughter and myself have been coming here for a few years now. Dr. Gooch and his staff truly goes above and beyond for their patients!! Everyone one in this office always has a positive and cheerful attitude. Oh and my daughter loves the little treasure box full of toys after her cleanings. There location has moved and the address is not updated in google, but its located on 119. Also, I love the new office space!! I always have a great experience with every visit!! This place is definitely deserving of 5 star reviews!!

Erica H. from Louisville, KY (Source: Yelp)


AMAZING staff and service!!! They welcomed me and made me feel appreciated! They helped me with the HORRIBLE work done on my porcelain veneer from Magic City Dentistry…!!! Dr. Gooch is EXTRAORDINARY and the office is state-of-the-art BEAUTIFUL!!! Thank you sooooo much!

Stephanie C. from Sterrett, AL (Source: Yelp)


I was so impressedwith the level of professionalism of all of the staff. Everyone was so welcoming they introduced everyone gave a tour of the facility and had a one on one meet and greet between uou & the hygienist (Hi Courtney ). They have all the stat of the art equipment & explained everything they were doing as they did it. The time and patience they took with me has been EVERYTHING My husband and I have been looking for in customer service in a dental facility. Should been let the other guy’s. Won’t call any names but if they subscribe to yelp they will read the review..

Best dentist office I’ve ever been to. I’ve lived in many states, have had lots of dentists and Gooch Family Dental is the best. Not only is Dr. Gooch a great dentist, but him and ALL his office staff from the front reception to the check out area are so nice and go above and beyond! I’ve loved every hygienist I’ve seen there over the many, many years and have never had a bad experience. They are so kind to my husband with his ever changing schedule, and the kids and all their cavities have been no problem. I even have a friend now that their husband is a dentist, but I love this dental office so much there is no way I’d change!

Jessica S. from Birmingham, AL (Source: Yelp)


Let me just say this is an amazing dentistry! I just absolutely love how you’re treated and honestly cared about. I never felt like this about any dentistry I have ever been to. Your greeted when you walk in the door as if they’ve known you for a long time. Given that this was my first visit I was given a tour of the entire facility and was even given a little present and a card welcoming me. It was no more than five minutes that was taken back to explain the entire procedure just for a teeth cleaning and having my x-rays done. My dental hygienist actually read my chart and paid attention to my allergies. They have some of the latest to take equipment and keep up-to-date with the times on anything new. Each room is extremely clean with music and, calm atmosphere. They are sterile with everything that they use. She really had compassion knowing how nervous I was from past bad didn’t experiences and injuries. Michelle went over everything making sure it was taking care, not missing anything. They let you know you cost in Advance on any work you have to have done and explain everything to you in detail. I really love coming here and would never recommend any other dentist then this establishment. I am truly blown away. Plus they also send you text messages and emails keeping you up-to-date with your appointments in anything you need to know, even a check up after the appointment.
