Dr. Goyal has been working in the dental field for well over a decade now, and in that time, he’s developed countless long-term relationships with his patients. Getting to know the people he treats from appointment to appointment is one of his favorite parts of the job! For him, making a patient feel valued and cared for is just as important as providing great dentistry. Here in Virginia Beach, he’s thrilled to be starting a new chapter and serving the local community. If you’d like to learn more about him, continue reading below.
Why Did You Decide
to Become a Dentist?
Growing up, coming from a family of medical professionals, Dr. Goyal saw firsthand how gratifying and satisfying it is to be able to help people and provide them with the best possible care. Even if it is in a small way, it can give someone a reason to smile.
What drew him to dentistry is that he saw it was the perfect blend of art and science, plus it would give him an opportunity to utilize his hands while forming long term relationships with his patients. He also enjoys that it’s a constantly evolving field. He is always learning new things that improve the way he practices and help him provide the best possible care with the latest innovations.
Where Did You Study Dentistry?
After studying at the University of Alabama, Dr. Goyal completed his Doctor of Dental Surgery at New York University in 2010. He is currently a Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry, which is a hard-earned achievement that only 6% of general dentists ever reach! He is also certified in laser dentistry and currently attending advanced training in dental implants to further elevate his clinical skillset.

He has served as the Hampton Roads Community Director in a private practice since 2015. He’s always up for an adventure – in past years, he’s run several marathons (including the Boston Marathon and the Bataan Death March) and has even climbed Kilimanjaro!
Dr. Goyal is also a proud Army veteran! He is currently working for the Army Reserves in the medical unit and was recently deployed to New York to assist with COVID-19.
