At Serenity Smiles Dentistry of Scottsdale, we understand what it takes to provide an exceptional experience for our patients. Our dental team is committed to customized treatment, precision dentistry, and, most importantly—gentleness, kindness, and compassion.
Our dental office is a welcoming space staffed with professionals who are passionate about helping people and making a difference in their dental health. Every day we see the transformative effects of helping someone improve their oral health and take pride in their smiles. This is our intention for all of our patients, and we know we can help you achieve your healthiest, most confident smile.
We have created a soothing environment that patients tell us is more like a spa than a dental office. You will appreciate thoughtful touches like a coffee bar in our reception area, pillows and blankets in our treatment rooms, and a warm towel after treatment.
Our dental team would love to welcome you to Serenity Smiles and help improve your perception of what a dental appointment should be. Until then, please take a moment to get to know our doctors and the wonderful team who will serve you.
Dr. Maria Goff
Dr. Maria Goff earned her undergraduate degrees in biology and chemistry from Western Kentucky University. She attended the University of Kentucky, where she earned her Doctorate of Dental Medicine degree. While in school, Dr. Goff earned an award from the American Equilibration Society for her knowledge in the field of occlusion and the temporomandibular joint. She is also trained to provide IV sedation dentistry and BOTOX® injections.
Dr. Goff enjoys helping her patients feel comfortable and happy, both in the dental office and with their smiles. She enjoys staying up to date in the dental field by attending continuing education courses and participating in online forums.
At your next appointment, make sure to have pictures of your dogs to show Dr. Goff because she has two fur babies of her own! She is always looking for new places to take her dogs and let them run free. Outside of the office, Dr. Goff enjoys taking her jeep to the desert, traveling, and reading in her free time.
Dr. David Eccker
Dr. David Eccker received his undergraduate degree in biology from San Diego State University. He then went on to earn his Doctorate in Dental Medicine from the University of Kentucky, graduating magna cum laude with honors. During his third year of dental school, Dr. Eccker was selected for a military scholarship through the US Army Reserves. Dr. Eccker has been actively involved in the reserves and received an award from the Lexington Medical Recruiting center for his involvement in helping medical and dental students understand what the Army could do for them. Additionally, Dr. Eccker was recognized by the University of Kentucky Department of Endodontics for excellence in endodontics.
He believes his passion for dentistry stems from his interest in mechanics, as he has found the two industries to be quite similar. Before dental school, Dr. Eccker was a practicing mechanic and worked for the San Diego Padres. He rebuilt a 2005 Suzuki RM250 and is always looking for another project. If you have a passion for motocross or supercross, you better extend your appointment because you two will be chatting for a while!
At the dental office, Dr. Eccker looks forward to connecting with each of his patients on an individual level—he truly enjoys getting to hear everyone’s unique story! When he is not hard at work helping patients, Dr. Eccker enjoys a variety of hobbies, including motocross, mechanics, and collecting rare bourbon!
