Thanks to Dr. Joel Gould, a Manhattan Beach dentist, Maria DiGiovanni has a new smile – and the confidence that comes with it. A survivor of domestic abuse by her husband, a police officer, she was afraid to smile and reveal broken teeth, or even worse ‘ have them fall out,’ as she says. Through Safe Passage, a non-profit organization helping women and their children break the cycle of domestic abuse, Dr. Gould and his practice, Modern American Dentistry, have provided dental care for many women and Maria is the most dramatic case to date. (You’ve read about the good doctor on our site before, when we wrote about his informative podcasts.)

As Maria recovered from her experience — and started educating others about domestic violence — the Doctor wanted to give her a smile that fit with her new self. Using his own line of cosmetic restorations called the “SUPERMODEL CROWNS,” Doctor Gould has given Maria a big, friendly smile that fits her personality.
