Our Impacts - Huntington Dental Excellence, Pasadena

Community Outreach and Mission Trips

Making sure every patient we see receives world-class treatment is so important to Dr. Goei and the team at Huntington Dental Excellence but making an impact on the surrounding community is something we also take very seriously. We take great pride in positively impacting Pasadena, California, and its surrounding communities. Through community outreach and mission trips, we strive to make a lasting impact and will make every effort to do so in the future.

Health and Longevity

Dental health is but one aspect of an individual’s whole health. This is something that Dr. Goei and the team at Huntington Dental Excellence understand and keep in mind when providing treatment to patients. The mouth can be looked at as a gateway to overall health. Many dental health problems are now linked to more significant health issues. One example is how gum disease can be linked to cardiovascular disease. We want to help provide healthy mouths to every patient we treat so that overall health and longevity of life will be positively impacted as well.

Work-Life Balance

We understand that keeping a balance between work and one’s personal life can be difficult as it is without having to worry about fitting in dental appointments. Dr. Goei and the Huntington Dental Excellence team try to make scheduling appointments as easy as possible for our patients. We want to make an appointment with Dr. Goei as convenient as possible. If multiple dental treatments are needed, Dr. Goei will plan them all to fit within a single appointment if possible. We want to have as little negative impact on your work-life balance as possible.


There is no “one size fits all” mentality in how we practice dentistry here at Huntington Dental Excellence. We understand that every patient we see, even though they may need similar treatments, will have their own special needs when it comes to their treatment. Dr. Goei takes a very patient-centric approach to dental treatment. He is here to listen to every patient, answer questions, address concerns, and develop a treatment plan specific to that patient. This approach has consistently impacted our patients in the most positive ways, and so we will continue this approach in the future too.

Family-Centered Culture

We are proud to have developed an in-office culture that is welcoming to all family members. From the very youngest children to the oldest grandparents, we want every member of each family we treat to feel comfortable with the treatment they receive from Dr. Goei, who can meet the specific needs of his patients, regardless of age. Children and the elderly, in particular, have specific requirements which need to be met. We are happy to be able to meet these needs and provide an environment that is welcoming to all.

Positive Team Culture

Culture is a unique trait for every organization, and culture is people. Our culture is defined by the people who make up our team. Dr. Goei has always emphasized the importance of our staff being a team who works, listens, and makes a difference – together. Every team member trusts each other, and this trust continues to build daily. No organization is perfect, so on stressful days, our team continues to instill an attitude of kindness and consideration for each other. We hold each other accountable for maintaining this sense of “team” and are proud of the stable, reliable, and team-oriented staff we have put together here at Huntington Dental Excellence.
