Meet Team Gold!
Dr. Charles Goldstein
Growing up in Metro Detroit, Charles Goldstein became interested in dentistry from his own childhood visits to the dentist. He has always enjoyed science and working with his hands. He earned a B.A. in Philosophy from Albion College while completing pre-dental curriculum requirements, and is a graduate of Northwestern University Dental School in Chicago. He continues to attend a wide variety of courses to stay on top of the latest developments in dentistry.
As a general dentist, Dr. Goldstein restores and maintains teeth to function and health. He enjoys the diagnosis process - evaluating dental symptoms and listening to his patients’ concerns. Relieving pain and discomfort, helping a patient to smile again, and teaching patients to maintain a healthy mouth, are the things that make Dr. Goldstein and his team passionate about the dental profession.
Charles has been married to his wife Martha for over twenty years. They have a Tibetan Terrier who has been trained as a therapy dog to bring comfort to veterans at the VA Hospital and to people of all ages in other settings. Charles is concerned about the welfare of animals and donates to the Humane Society among other organizations. He sends toothbrush kits to troops overseas, veterans’ groups, local firefighters and his neighboring church’s homeless shelter program.
In his spare time, Dr. Goldstein likes spending time with family and friends, getting out into nature, watching Detroit sports teams, working out at the gym, and anything with wheels and an engine.
