About Dr. David A. Goldberg

Dr. David A. Goldberg graduated from Rutgers University, Cook College with high honors and a Bachelor of Science degree in Animal Science. He continued his studies at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) where he earned his DMD (Doctor of Dental Medicine) degree, was inducted into the honorary dental fraternity, OKU and served as President of the Student Government Association. Dr. Goldberg completed his general practice residency at Montefiore Medical Center where he treated medically compromised patients and trained in anesthetics and emergency room medicine.

Dr. Goldberg completed his training in periodontics at the Columbia School of Dental and Oral Surgery where he taught undergraduate periodontics. He also served as an Associate Clinical Professor of Periodontics at Fairleigh Dickenson School of Dentistry for seven years. After opening his private practice in the Central Jersey area, Dr. Goldberg became active in the New Jersey Dental Association serving as State Chairman of the Membership Council, President of the Central Dental Society, and Editor of the Central Dental Bulletin.

In 1985, Dr. Goldberg joined a select group of dentists who travelled to Leuven, Belgium to study with Dr. Per-Ingvar Bränemark, the father of modern implant dentistry. In 1989, Dr. Goldberg became Board Certified in Periodontics, a distinction limited to only the top 15% of periodontists in the country. In 2003 he went on to earn his Board Certification in Implant Dentistry and is one of only a handful of periodontists with Dual Board Certification.

Selected as a Fellow in the prestigious International College of Dentists, Dr. Goldberg has been singled out as one of the top periodontists in the state by NJ Monthly Magazine in 2002, 2005, 2010 and 2013. He has been published in refereed journals, served as Editor of the New Jersey Society of Periodontists Bulletin, and has been a guest lecturer at the NJ Dental School. Always looking for ways to help, Dr. Goldberg has volunteered to aid underserved populations both here in New Jersey and most recently abroad in Nicaragua.

Serving on the Board of Trustees of the New Jersey Society of Periodontology, Dr. Goldberg was also a past
President and newsletter Editor. He currently maintains his private practice in periodontics and implant dentistry, conveniently located at 176 Cedar Street in North Plainfield, NJ.

On a personal note, Dr. Goldberg is married to Cynthia K. Scott, PhD, has three children and two Labrador Retrievers. He and his family reside on their tree farm within the 2,500 acre Sourland Reservation in Neshanic, NJ. Dr. Goldberg is a sports enthusiast, participating in a variety of activities including running, cycling, basketball, tennis, and skiing. Even though he has never been invited to participate in any Olympic trials, he still enjoys his play and continues to revel in his work.

What Dr. Goldberg's Patients are saying about their Dental Implant Experience....

"I am a 62 year old woman who had a traumatic experience with my dentist as a 7 year-old and, in turn, developed tremendous fear of all dentists. Subsequently, I avoided dental care thereafter such that my teeth and gums deteriorated significantly. I consulted Dr. Goldberg and he recommended implants, which heightened my fears even more. However, his work was so caring and thorough that I went through the whole experience with insignificant pain and, above all, without fear. The implants have thoroughly improved my life and words cannot express how grateful I am to him".

"When I look for a specialist I look for someone who is board certified -Dr. Goldberg is dual board certified – in both Periodontics and Implantology. When I look for a specialist I want to know that my doctor is keeping up with new developments through continuing education – Dr. Goldberg achieves in excess of 5 to 10 times the minimum required continuing education credit hours annually. Do you want a specialist that goes through the motions or one who is always seeking new information, setting new goals and is motivated to be the best he/she can be? Despite his dedication to his profession, Dr. G excels in personal fitness training and manages to never miss a beat in those "other" jobs of concerned/involved dad and husband. I've known Dr. Goldberg since the early days of my own general dental practice. If there was ever a role model for a young (and now slightly older) doctor to emulate, then I would have to say one finds this person not in some fictional TV show character but rather right here in Dr. David Goldberg. So now do you even need to wonder where I refer my family members for periodonal treatment and implants? "

--Dr. M.

"In 2007, I went for a check-up to a dentist. I found out I had quite a few problems. I was referred to Dr. David A. Goldberg. When I arrived there, I was very nervous, I didn't know what to expect. Dr. Goldberg explained everything that needed to be done, and said we would take it one step at a time. He and his staff made me feel very comfortable. Everyone in the office was very nice.  After a few months I had periodontal surgery and dental implants, and to my surprise, I didn't experience any pain. Dr. Goldberg called me to check up on my progress and always made me feel I could ask any questions. Sometimes I would pop into the office just to ask him a question and he would always make time for me. Thanks to Dr. Goldberg, now I have a beautiful and healthy smile." 

--Carmella F.

"The first words out of Dr. Winter's mouth were, "You have had excellent dental care." Then he went on to say that he was very impressed with the quality of the implants. I wanted to share that praise with the one responsible. Thanks for your quality work on my right lower molar."

--David Q.

"When I first learned that I would need extensive implant surgery, I was apprehensive and anticipated a prolonged, painful experience. Thankfully, I was referred to Dr. Goldberg and my concerns proved to be totally unwarranted.Dr. Goldberg himself was extraordinarily sensitive, gentle, and professional. From our first meeting I felt comfortable and confident that I was in the right hands. The numerous implants were successful and completed with surprisingly minimal discomfort throughout the entire process. I'm also indebted to Dr. Goldberg's team who all were supportive, caring and skilled. All in all, having been referred to Dr. Goldberg was the best thing that could have happened to me."

--Shel G.

"The only person I ever knew to get dental implants was a patient of Dr. Goldberg. She had such an easy time of it, raved about him, and had such a gorgeous smile, I felt compelled to become his patient. What needs to be noted is that I reside in Queens, New York. However, I would commute to his office even if I lived on the moon. 

He is caring, patient, talented - my guess, the best periodontist on the planet! His work on me was extensive-extractions, fourteen upper dental implants, sinus lift, bone grafting! All of which occurred WITHOUT PAIN, WITHOUT INFECTION, WITH COMPREHENDABLE EXPLANATIONS, RESPECT FOR MY SCHEDULE, AND WITH THE SPEEDIEST COMPLETION POSSIBLE." 

The man is truly a gentleman! 

All of the people working in his office are exactly like him - kind, thoughtful, helpful, super-pleasant and major talented at whatever their job assignments are. In short, it would be a life-altering mistake to go to anyone else! This assessment will only cause his caseload to multiply. I hope I still can get an appointment with him!

"Dr. Goldberg's implant procedures are excellent and can benefit people of any age. I am 79 years old and Dr. Goldberg placed four dental implants for me twelve years ago. It was one of the best decisions I have ever made. My implants enable me to enjoy all the foods I like and don't restrict me in any way. There is no cleaning or soaking involved like with dentures. You feel like you are flossing and brushing your own natural teeth. Implants don't harm my other teeth unlike partials which can shift your natural teeth and damage them. My appearance has been transferred giving me confidence in any special event. I have the smile of a 21 year old again. My teeth have been refurbished, crowned, straightened and held firm through the use of a bridge. I see Dr. Goldberg every 3 months to maintain my implants. It was well worth everything I invested. Dr. Goldberg did an excellent job."

Josephine H.

"How long have I known Dr. Goldberg and his staff...it goes back many, many years. Few of us can be that lucky. I came with numerous problems, had gum recession, needed root scraping and implants, but now have the "perfect mouth." I owe it to the expertise of Dr. Goldberg and his staff. The office is equipped with the latest technology and the staff is knowledgeable, pleasant and always willing to be of assistance. If you're looking for the best, go no further. You have reached the ultimate with Dr. Goldberg and his staff."

Ruth M.

"Dr. Goldberg, I don't know where to begin to thank you for the excellent care and treatment that I have received from you. You are a special person and truly a gift to your profession!! Thank you just doesn't seem to be enough for your skilled and compassionate care, however but so greatly appreciated. 

I am sure you will find some new patients because of me. There isn't a person that I run into that I don't mention what you have done for me, what a wonderful person you are and what a great staff you have at your office!"

Sandi O. 

"I just wanted to thank you for doing such a wonderful job with my implants. I was extremely nervous about having it done, so nervous I put it off for a couple of years, but I had absolutely no pain the entire time you were doing the work. It was much worse mentally than it was physically, and I am talking about four teeth!

You were excellent. From the minute I got in your chair, after taking Zanex because I was such a mental case, I never felt pain. I never needed a painkiller and took nothing but the Advil that you prescribed. I had absolutely no pain even during the recovery period. It is just unbelievable what a painless experience it was for me when I had anticipated such a horrible image in my head. Your bedside manner is wonderful. I always feel I can call you with a question and your office is also very friendly and helpful. I feel like a friend when I walk in there.

I would definitely tell anyone not to hesitate to get an implant if you are the doctor performing the surgery. Thank you so much for making it much easier experience than I had anticipated, although I hope I don't need any more in the future!"
