Dr. Tina Goodall
Dr. Goodall has been a resident of Cary for nearly 30 years, after growing up in Raleigh. She earned a BS in Computer Science from NCSU in 1991, and went to work as a Software Engineer at IBM. During her 14 years in IBM development, ultimately managing software developers, she completed a Masters in Engineering (ME) at NCSU. After a fulfilling career at IBM, she decided to pursue an interest in healthcare, completing her Doctorate of Dental Surgery at UNC-Chapel Hill, and now continues to reside in Cary, where she can apply her strong problem-solving background to determining the best solution for each patient’s smile.
With over 10 years’ experience as a general dentist, Dr. Goodall is gentle and caring, always interested in providing the best possible care for each patient she has the opportunity to serve. She is known for her friendly smile and happy demeanor. Recognizing that “doctor” means “teacher”, Dr. Goodall believes her role as educator of patients is the most important role she plays in the dental office. Dr. Goodall enjoys seeing patients of all ages, and feels most fully rewarded when she helps provide need-based dental care via opportunities such as the NC Missions of Mercy Free Dental Clinics for impoverished people throughout North Carolina, the NC Baptist Men’s Dental Bus at local churches and the State Fair, and for locally sponsored orphans from around the world. She has provided over $75,000 in donated dental services.
Dr. Goodall regularly attends continuing education classes and study clubs to keep up-to-date with the latest research and techniques so she can provide her patients with the best care possible. She is a member of several dental organizations and study clubs, including:
- American Dental Association (ADA)
- Academy of General Dentistry (AGD)
- North Carolina Dental Society (NCDS)
- American Association of Pediatric Dentists (AAPD)
- Academy of Laser Dentistry (ALD)
- American Laser Study Club
- Seattle Study Club
- Spear Study Club
Dr. Goodall has for nearly 25 years been happily married to Bill Goodall, a Distinguished Electrical and Computer Engineer with Ampere Computing. They have 3 children: William, Ian, and Catherine. The Goodall’s attend 519 Church in Cary.
