Dr. Godwin obtained her Bachelor of Science degree in Molecular Biology and Microbiology from the University of Central Florida and went on to obtain her Doctor of Dental Medicine degree from the University of Florida College of Dentistry. She was a recipient of the Health Professions Scholarship with the United States Army and took direct commission onto Active Duty following dental school.

After dental school, Dr. Godwin completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry program at Fort Benning, GA, and then obtained a four-year certificate in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Dwight D. Eisenhower Army Medical Center in Augusta, GA. Her training in the military was extensive and included corrective jaw surgery, dental implants, various bone harvesting and grafting techniques, removal of wisdom teeth and other dental extractions, TMJ surgery, cosmetic facial surgery, maxillofacial trauma, and removing pathology and reconstruction of various head and neck structures.

Dr. Godwin’s most recent military assignment was in Tacoma, WA, at Joint Base Lewis-McChord, where she trained and mentored resident oral surgeons. During her final four-year tour, she served both as Assistant Program Director and Program Director for the OMS Residency Program at Madigan Army Medical Center.
