Dr. Brett T. Goldstein, DMD
Dr. Goldstein born in Brooklyn, NY and raised in Marlboro, NJ did not make his way to Florida until a rotation during his final year of dental school. After falling in love with Southwest Florida Dr. Goldstein made the move permanent and began to practice in Port Charlotte shortly after graduation from dental school. He is a graduate of The Pennsylvania State University, where he obtained a Bachelor of Science in Science and from the Boston University Henry M. Goldman School of Dental Medicine, which is where he graduated with his Doctorate in Dental Medicine, Magna Cum Laude.
Beginning his career in community health, Dr. Goldstein has spent plenty of time serving those patients with limited access to dental care. He believes strongly that each person regardless of age or financial status deserves access to care. Because of this he is very supportive of Dr. Rasmussen’s mission to provide students in Lee county with the oral health education that they need.
Dr. Goldstein was told from his childhood dentist that being a dentist meant that you never stopped learning. Because of this Dr. Goldstein is a member of multiple associations such as the American Dental Association, Florida Dental Association, West Coast Dental Association and is active in participating in multiple courses to help advance his knowledge in the dental field.
