John Gonzalez, D.D.S.
John Gonzalez, D.D.S., grew up in Malibu. He went to the Santa Monica/Malibu school system, then went onto pursue the University of California, Santa Barbara and finally to dental school at the University of California, Los Angeles where. he graduated in 1992. Growing up, Dr. Gonzalez enjoyed drawing, building many projects and learning how things worked. He had won several awards in high school for ceramics and spent time in college not only studying the sciences but also doing sculpting and participating in other art forms. The study of science and mathematics was not easy, but his tenacity allowed him to achieve high grades which propelled him into one of the most beautiful, most sought out dental schools in the country. Soon after graduation from the UCLA's dental school, Dr. Gonzalez, felt comfortable going immediately into private practice. For thirteen years he worked in a very successful, high profile practice and gained a reputation in the office for being the dentist who could correct complex dental problems.
Dr. Gonzalez always uses a simple, straightforward philosophy about doing good dentistry: It involves following established principles, using his gift for understanding how things work, applying an artistic imagination, having a gentle touch and most of all treating every patient with the utmost care. Patients are not a commodity to be brokered, lied to or coerced into treatment. They are not dollar signs. Patients are to be cared for, treated with respect and honesty. Good dentistry requires both skill and integrity. He practices both general dentistry, treating patients with common dental problems and procedures, and restorative dentistry whereby Dr. Gonzalez addresses those patients who have suffered from severe dental neglect or from poor quality work performed by other dentists, many of whom require extensive dental reconstruction. Dr. Gonzalez has teamed-up with a select group of specialists who perform root canals, tooth extractions, implant placements, gingival tissue work, and other specialized procedures that he prefers not to do so that he can concentrate on what he enjoys the most in the field of dentistry. These specialists share his integrity and commitment to excellence.
