Education & Background

Prior to his career in dentistry, Dr. Cary Goldstein completed a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology at the University of Georgia in 1980. He went on to later receive his DMD from the Medical College of Georgia, followed by post-graduate studies in prosthodontics at the University of Southern California School of Dentistry.

Homecoming to Atlanta

Following his professional training, Dr. Goldstein returned “home” to Atlanta and was part of a multi-disciplinary private practice with five other clinicians. In 1996, Dr. Goldstein established his own practice in a new office on East Andrews Drive.

He’s currently a clinical instructor in Oral Rehabilitation at the Medical College of Georgia School of Dentistry and a past special lecturer in Esthetic Dentistry at Emory University. Dr. Goldstein teaches other dentists, passing his expertise and experience to others in the field.

Professional Achievements

Among his extensive training and continuing education accomplishments, Dr. Goldstein is recognized by the following professional organizations for his services:

  • A past president and current board member of the American Academy of Esthetic Dentistry, which only accepts 100 Fellows across the globe, so it is a Who’s Who of dentists
  • Member of the Alpha Omega Dental Fraternity
  • Member of the American Dental Association
  • Former Member of the American College of Prosthodontists
  • Former Executive Board Member of the Ben Massell Dental Clinic, originally founded by his grandfather

A Third-Generation Dentist

Following a long tradition of excellence in patient care, Dr. Goldstein is a third-generation dentist behind his father, grandfather, cousins, and now his brother and sister, too. Based on his family history, you can understand why Dr. Goldstein says, “Dentistry is in my genes.”

Exceptional Care at Goldstein Dental Center

Your comfort is our utmost priority. Dr. Goldstein uses his experience and artistic eye to make sure you look and feel like the best, most confident version of yourself by using the latest dental tools and state-of-the-art technology.

Dr. Goldstein is well aware that people often have anxiety about dentistry, which is why he wants to provide a welcoming and relaxing environment for his patients to look forward to their appointments. He provides television viewings during your visit and may offer you Martini Dentistry (nitrous oxide/laughing gas) for your appointment.
