He has been treating the residents of Northern Virginia, Maryland, and Washington D.C. for over 25 years. Dr. Gouldin is committed to creating a peaceful office environment, and he utilizes today’s most innovative medical technologies to effectively treat his patients with esthetics and comfort in mind. Although Dr. Gouldin is certified to perform IV sedation, Northern Virginia Periodontics has partnered with Medical Director and board certified anesthesiologist, Dr. Teresa Lee Roberts and her group, Anesthesia Connections Dental, L.L.C., for IV sedation and general anesthesia services. Dr. Roberts and her team have vast experience in healthcare and are committed to providing safe IV sedation and general anesthesia administration and monitoring of vitals throughout your procedure. This allows Dr. Gouldin to focus solely on what he is most highly trained for – your periodontal or dental implant related treatment.
Dr. Gouldin offers the latest treatments for gum recession (Chao Pinhole Surgical Technique), and periodontal disease (LANAP). Perhaps the most exciting recent advance in dentistry that Dr. Gouldin performs involves removing one or multiple failed teeth and immediately replacing the lost anatomy of the tooth root and crown through state of the art dental implant therapy. This procedure is known as “Teeth in a Day” or “Immediate Loading”, and the concepts involved have completely revolutionized the field of dentistry.
