Dr. Alan Goldberg
Dr. Goldberg, Alan to many of you, graduated from New York University School of Dentistry in 1970. He joined with Dr. Jack Zuckerman to form Zuckerman and Goldberg Dental Associates. In 1981 Dr. Goldberg furthered his professional credentials by completing the qualifications and testing set by the Academy of General Dentistry and receiving the degree of Fellow in the Academy. Continuing education and study have been at the forefront of his dental career.
In the year 2000, Dr. Marcus relocated to Connecticut and joined with Dr. Goldberg. Their practice is still growing and thriving as Goldberg & Marcus Dental Associates. Some seventy odd years from its beginning, the practice has grown into a multidisciplinary group practice.
Looking back on these decades of practice, it is not the professional society memberships, teaching experience, or awards and recognition granted that have been most fulfilling to him. Rather it is the close personal relationships that have developed between his generational patients and his staff. He is proud to claim that among his staff there are many employees that have worked with him for 20, 30, 40 and 50 years. It is not unusual to find second and third generation patients as well.
“I believe that dentistry is in its Golden Age of Technology and my promise to my patients is to continue caring for them as the family that I feel they are.”

Goldberg Dental Associates, P.C.. Even though this Connecticut practice was over 60 miles away from his residence in New York City, Dr. Marcus was so taken by the professionalism and patient dedication to the practice, that he commuted for over 3 years. Finally Dr. Marcus and his family made the move to Connecticut and is a permanent fixture in the community.
