Specializing in Implants and Sedation

Daniel Andrews, DMD An Award-Winning Dentist

Dr. Daniel Andrews graduated from The University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Dentistry in 2017. He was chosen as the annual recipient of the Horace Wells Award, which is given to the graduating student who demonstrated outstanding achievement in the field of dental anesthesiology. 

Following graduation, he was accepted into an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency program at The Foundry Dental Center in Bessemer, AL. Upon completion of his residency, Dr. Andrews joined Gooch Family Dental in July of 2018.

Having Dr. Andrews on our team has benefited our practice not only because of his passion for excellence in dentistry, but also because of his specialized knowledge of dental implants and sedation dentistry.

A Closer Look at Dr. Andrews' Specialties

During his residency program, Dr. Andrews expanded and improved upon his general dentistry skills with a special focus on surgery, dental implants, and sedation dentistry

Dental Implants

Dr. Andrews is an implantology expert who uses 3D scanners and printers to provide implants that can last a lifetime. Forbes magazine estimates that 23% of all Americans will have dental implants by 2026. Implants are booming because they offer unmatched benefits for patients with missing teeth. Dental implants provide the highest level of stability and support for dental restorations. They are also the only restorative procedure that stops jawbone recession after tooth loss. 

Sedation Dentistry

Our dentist works to make every procedure as relaxing and painless as possible. His extensive sedation dentistry knowledge helps him achieve this goal. Dr. Andrews is known for helping patients of all ages and dental anxiety levels. He offers two types of sedation. The first is nitrous oxide, also known as laughing gas, which induces relaxation and subsides almost instantly after treatment. The second is oral sedation, which induces a deeper level of near-sleep that requires arranging transportation to and from your appointment.

Dr. Andrews' Life Outside of Dentistry


Dr. Andrews attended Bethel University in McKenzie, TN for his undergraduate studies. He was a student-athlete who played golf for the Bethel Wildcats. At Bethel, he met his wife Jessica. She was also a collegiate athlete who competed for the Wildcats volleyball team. 

Dr. Andrews greatly enjoys working out, sports, karaoke, and online gaming. He also holds a distinction virtually no dentist can claim: Dr. Andrews has been married to the same woman twice but has never been divorced! He and his beloved wife Jessica were married here in the states and again in her native Brazil. 

As Dr. Andrew's patient, you will find that he isn't just an outstanding dentist — he is also a friendly person who is fun to spend time with. We're certain every visit with Dr. Andrews will be more like visiting with a friend than just another dental appointment.
