Presentation & overview

The Atlanta Offices of Goldstein, Garber & Salama  have several unique aspects that make it possibly the only practice of its kind in the world. The practice boasts three dual-trained specialists as well as an internationally recognized authority in the field of esthetic dentisty, and two general dentists who are experts in the field of cosmetic dentistry. This group of dentists work collaboratively with one another to achieve the best possible outcome for the patient. In addition, four of these dentists are frequent authors of dental literature, and sought-after lecturers both nationally and internationally.

Practice Philosophy

Our practice was founded in 1929 by Dr. Irving H. Goldstein. Philosophically well ahead of his time, Dr. Goldstein understood that superior dental care was just the beginning of a patient relationship.

His tradition of preventive and minimally invasive dentistry remains the basis for service and care in our practice. We have a simple goal: preserve your natural teeth for life and maintain your overall oral health at the highest level. By working together, we can achieve this goal.

We spend much of our time helping patients enhance their smiles. While many may view this treatment as purely cosmetic, we regard it as an integral part of dental, as well as general health.

A smile contributes to each person’s unique look. As such, it plays a key role in that person’s self image and interaction with the world.

    I am an Assoc. Professor of Periodontics at King Khalid University, Saudi Arabia. I am interested to have a short hands-on program on Dental Implants. I’m a Bangladeshi national. I’d be grateful to have an opportunity with a minimum cost.

    I have a #30 molar that needs a root canal which I have chosen rather to have extracted. I was referred by a biological dentist from Clearwater, FL., Beata Carlson who said you use non-metal zirconium for implants. Do you use the Z Look 3 SLM or another? Approx. what will the cost and time duration be?

    Is it better to have the tooth extraction before I come in for the first part of the procedure? If so, how long after extraction?

    Also, my husband Gary has a titanium implant that is loose. We will be leaing Fl. for Kauai Oct. 15th. Thank you, Billie Sparks

    Two weeks ago I had #3 removed. I live in New Orleans and after extensive research found your office and have a few questions.

    Do you use Cera Root or Z-Sys implants?
    How many visits will I have to make to your Atlanta office?
    What is the procedure’s cost?
    Is your surgeon a member of Delta Dental insurance?

    I appreciate your response,
