Dentist in West HoustonJune Goodall, DDS & Associates
June Goodall felt the calling to be a dentist while in high school when women were strongly discouraged from becoming dentists. She taught in public school for 15 years until she was able to enter dental school. There were, even then, only eight women in her dental class.
Dr. Goodall has earned a Bachelor of Science (University of Richmond) and Master of Education (Eastern Carolina) prior to becoming a Doctor of Dental Surgery (Univ. Texas – San Antonio). U.S. News and World Report rated Dr. Goodall’s school, the University of Texas Dental School in San Antonio, as the best dental school in the nation in the years Dr. Goodall studied there. When asked how she felt about being delayed so many years in getting to fulfill her vocation as a dentist, Dr. Goodall replied: “I guess it was meant to be that I become a human being first.”Her humanness is characteristic of Dr. Goodall’s style of dentistry.
During those early pre-dental years, in addition to her experience teaching, Dr. Goodall underwent many hours of training in interpersonal relations. Another characteristic of Dr. Goodall’s dentistry is her love and commitment to learning and professional growth. Dr. Goodall takes courses in at least four annual dental conventions: * The Greater Houston Dental Society; * The Texas Dental Association and * The Academy of Laser Dentistry. * The (nation-wide) Seattle Dental Study Group Dr. Goodall has been one of the earliest practitioners of laser dentistry and is one of a few in the nation utilizing this advanced technology. Dr. Goodall also actively participates in study groups on dental implantology. She interpreted her commencement at Dental School as the beginning of learning, not the completion of it.
Dr. Goodall is not only licensed and experienced but is also up-to-date and driven to stay up-to-date on the latest dental technology driven from within by a desire to learn and grow in a vocation that she has yearned to fulfill since her teen years.
