Dr. Apoorv Goel Periodontal Associates of South Bend

I was born and grew up in the northern part of India (a couple hours drive from New Delhi).  I received my dental education and degree there in 2012.  Due to curiosity and eagerness to learn the background of dental diseases, I pursued a Master of Science degree in Oral Biology at the University of Louisville School of Dentistry. While at Louisville, I successfully published my research work in an internationally reputed peer-reviewed journal. I then went on to pursue my passion in periodontology and implant dentistry.  My thesis at U of L was on the same bacteria, which causes periodontal diseases.  I started my three-year clinical residency and Master of Science in Dentistry at Indiana University School of Dentistry in 2016.  In 2019, with nominations from my mentors and peers, I received the prestigious IUPUI Elite 50 Award for excellence in campus leadership, scholarly work, and community engagement during my periodontology training.  I also received the Dr. Henry M. Swenson Award given to the graduating resident who displays the highest academic and clinical achievement level related to periodontology. After graduation, I joined Meharry as an assistant professor and worked with the pre-doctoral students and residents.  While teaching, I also worked at a Periodontal and Implant Practice in the Greater Nashville, TN area.

I have a great passion for continuing education and attending yearly courses and meetings while studying the most current literature to ensure that the treatments rendered by me meet the latest standards.  I believe in analyzing every case to the fullest extent and applying the latest technologies that include dental photography, digital scanning, 3-D CT scans, LANAP and PRF to provide an elevated level of care to my patients. 

My wife, Ann and I recently married in December of 2020.  Ann has been professionally trained as an orthodontist in India.  We are the proud parents to a Golden Retriever puppy, Wally (born December 25, 2020).  We are very excited to join the South Bend community and making it our forever home.
