When people ask me what I do for a living, I tell them that I make people smile…literally. I’m so thankful to have the opportunity to provide my patients with compassionate, satisfying dental experiences.”
“I am dedicated to providing a gentle, caring, and positive dental experience for each one of my patients. I also educate my patients on the benefits of prevention and how early restorative treatment will not only save them money, but greatly improve their health.”

Continuing Education & Professional Memberships
Dr. Goldesberry is an FAGD dentist! What does that mean for you and your family?
FAGD stands for Fellow of the Academy of General Dentistry. Earning Fellowship takes dedication to dental continuing education (CE) beyond graduation. Only about 6 percent of general dentists in the U.S. and Canada are AGD Fellows. When you see a dentist with FAGD after their name, you can rest assured that they care about knowing the latest techniques and best practices in dentistry. AGD Fellows practice these techniques in a classroom setting multiple times a year — not every dentist does this.
To become an AGD Fellow, a dentist must:
- Complete over 500 credit hours of CE
- Earn 350 of those 500 credits in live courses
- Pass an exam equal in difficulty to board certification exams
Additionally, Dr. Goldesberry hascompleted advanced training in oral surgery, implant restoration, and Invisalign® treatment. He is also a member of the Academy of General Dentistry.
