Steven R. Goldberg, DDS
Dr. Steven Goldberg is a general and cosmetic dentist in Augusta. Upon entering college with his career choice unknown, he was greatly influenced by his father, an orthodontist, to pursue the dental profession. In fact, he was a junior at The Ohio State University before he committed his career to dentistry.
After graduating from Ohio State, Dr. Goldberg studied at New York University College of Dentistry, an institution known for its strong clinical training.
Dr. Goldberg served as a captain and general dentist in the U.S. Army Dental Corps upon graduating from dental school. After serving at Fort Gordon, he decided to make Augusta his home.
Dr. Goldberg went on to serve on the Medical College of Georgia faculty for one year after leaving the Army. He opened his private dental practice on July 1, 1975. Since then, he has embraced some exciting technologies that improve the patient experience, such as Smile-Vision cosmetic simulations.
Without a doubt, helping people get out of pain or achieve more attractive smiles are the aspects of dentistry that he enjoys the most. Seeing patients proud to show off their smiles and hearing their gratitude is incredibly rewarding, Dr. Goldberg says.
Dr. Goldberg also greatly enjoys being in practice with his son, Dr. Adam Goldberg.
“It’s exhilarating to come in every morning and be with him,” Dr. Goldberg says. “He’s my best friend.”
The father and son team admit the first year or two in practice together was a bit rocky, since Steve Goldberg had been alone in his practice for 35 years. But today, they complement each other and give each other advice on treatment planning.
Dr. Goldberg is known as the biggest Ohio State fan in Augusta, and it is evident by the OSU doormat in front of the office, as well as the staff uniform on Thursdays: OSU-themed scrubs. Why Thursdays?
“Our staff chose Thursdays because it’s getting close to the weekend,” Dr. Goldberg says.
Dr. Goldberg and his wife Marsha have three children -Jason, Daniel and Adam – and two grandchildren. In his spare time, he enjoys playing golf, traveling with his family, and, of course, watching Ohio State football.
