In September of 2022, Dr. Goodman acquired Masterpiece Smiles, and we are now known as Masterpiece Family & Cosmetic Dentistry. We may have a new name, but the Clinton community can expect the same exceptional service. Dr. Goodman is well known for his excellent chairside manner, attention to detail, and punctuality.
