After twelve years of building a successful practice in New Orleans, LA, Dr. Goodspeed uprooted and moved to Birmingham, AL. Read on to find out why!
Dr. Goodspeed was introduced to Cecilia on a blind date in 1998 by some Birmingham friends. Cissy was so special and such a great match that they were wed in New Orleans in 2000. Dr. Goodspeed then moved as soon as he found a suitable dentist to take care of his patients in New Orleans. They gave birth to their son, Gray Evan Goodspeed, in 2002. What a bundle of joy! Gray continues to be a blessing with his caring soul and agile mind and body. Cissy and Barry are ever so grateful for their family and the many blessings provided to them.
Once in Birmingham, Dr. Goodspeed looked all over the city for a suitable place to re-establish his dental practice. Good fortune and patience led him to Homewood, AL where the practice and location were similar to his New Orleans practice. Dr. Goodspeed is the fourth dentist to practice in this building. The Homewood practice has been the perfect choice!
Every year Dr. Goodspeed's practice institutes some improvement for better patient care. At the start in 2001, internal and external renovations were made. Some major equipment additions have been treatment room computers, implant drill system, digital intraoral cameras, electric endodontic handpiece, soft tissue laser, and Isolite suction/retraction system. Dr. Goodspeed added the Cerec CAD/CAM porcelain restoration system in 2010. Dr. Goodspeed and his staff also continually add services for their devoted patients including implant placement, Invisalign and Clear Correct orthodontics, Cerec same day porcelain crowns and fillings, and Botox and dermal fillers. The 2012 upgrade to the practice included a faster and more versatile milling machine capable of decreasing the patient's appointment time and adding the capability of fabricating porcelain bridges and custom implant crowns at the office. 2014 brought the addition of digital x-ray capability both 2D and 3D. His practice is one of very few with 3D Cone Beam CT and CAD/CAM capability.
