Meet Dr. David Goldberg

Dr. David A. Goldberg graduated from Cook College of Rutgers University with high honors and a Bachelor of Science in animal science. He attended Rutgers School of Dental Medicine, where he was president of the student government association and inducted into the honorary dental fraternity, OKU. Dr. Goldberg did his general practice residency at Montefiore Medical Center where he treated medically compromised patients as well as trained in anesthetics and emergency room medicine.

Dr. Goldberg completed his training in periodontics at School of Dental and Oral Surgery at Columbia, where he taught undergraduate periodontics. He was also 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 and served as chairman of the Membership Council for five years, president of the Central Dental Society, and editor of the Central Dental Bulletin for another eight years.

In 1985, Dr. Goldberg was a member of a select group of dentists to travel to Leuven, Belgium to study with Dr. P. I. Bränemark, “the father of modern implant dentistry.” Dr. Goldberg became board certified in periodontics in 1989, which placed him among the top 15% of periodontists in the country. He also achieved board certification in implant dentistry and is one of only a handful of periodontists with dual board certification.

Dr. Goldberg was selected to become a fellow in the prestigious International College of Dentists and has been singled out as one of the top periodontists in the state by NJ Monthly Magazine from 2002 to the present. He has been published in refereed journals, and is editor of the New Jersey Society of Periodontology and Implant Dentistry Bulletin.

Dr. Goldberg was past president of, and is currently on the board of trustees of, the New Jersey Society of Periodontology and Implant Dentistry. Presently, Dr. Goldberg represents the periodontists of New York and New Jersey at the national level as a board member of the American Academy of Periodontology.

In addition, Dr. Goldberg has been a member of the surgical staff at Muhlenberg Hospital and currently maintains his private practice, limited to periodontics and implant dentistry, conveniently located at 176 Cedar Street in North Plainfield.

On a personal note, Dr. Goldberg is married to Cynthia K. Scott, Ph.D., and has three children, two grandchildren, and a Labrador Retriever. He and his family reside on their tree farm within the 2,500-acre Sourland Mountain Preserve in Neshanic. Dr. Goldberg is a sports enthusiast: He participates in a variety of sports, 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.
