Dr. George Gosztola grew up in Orange County California. As a typical child of his generation and environment, he enjoyed the invigorating influence of outdoor beach activities and high school sports. Dr. Gosztola chose to enter the Air Force immediately after high school, where he served as a Military Policeman and traveled extensively.
He earned his undergraduate degree from the University of California at Riverside in Cellular Biology where he graduated with honors whilst working in a research laboratory.
Dr. Gosztola continued his education at the University of Southern California where he was chosen as one of only 12 students for the Problem Based Learning pilot program at the Dental School. While at USC, he completed internships in implant dentistry and oral surgery at USC-LAC Medical Center. Dr. Gosztola graduated from USC on the Dean's List with academic honors, earned the school's Humanitarian Service Award, and the highly competitive Restorative Dentistry Award. We were all thrilled to have this sought after young dentist bring his strong diagnostic and clinical skills to our practice in 2000.
Dr. Gosztola has a passion for the profession of dentistry and recognizes the ever changing and evolving of new technologies, methods, and materials. He is a member of several dental study clubs, the American Dental Association, where he serves as a member of the ADA Clinical Evaluator (ACE) Panel, the Washing State Dental Association, and the Seattle/King County Dental Society, where he is a member of the continuation education committee.
Dr. Gosztola strives to stay at the forefront of dental care. In fact, he has been recognized by his peers as one of Seattle area’s “Top Dentists” every year since 2009.
Volunteer service and mentoring the next generation of dental providers is important to Dr. Gosztola as well. He works with dental students and the international aid organization AYUDA, to provide dental care in underserved areas. He also volunteers with local community outreach clinics providing emergency treatment for those most in need of assistance.
Dr. Gosztola and his wife Brooke are raising three active boys Miles, Adam, and Lachlan. When not in the dental office, he can be found coaching one of his sons' baseball or basketball teams or hiking, snowshoeing, or bike riding.
