Rachit Goyal, DMD

“I enjoy dentistry because it gives me an opportunity to work with people every day. I am able to educate my patients in a one-on-one environment and help them achieve the smile they desire.”

My Mission

“The biggest challenge with dentistry is patients trusting their dentist and being educated on their oral health needs. My team works hard every day to educate you and earn your trust so you can walk out with a healthy and beautiful smile, because a smile is a curve that sets everything straight. I’d like my patients to refer to me as a very caring dentist, who looks to provide patients with education so patients understand what treatment is best for their oral health and smile.”
