When Dr. Gold was 11 years old and receiving his own orthodontic treatment, his orthodontist, Dr. Solomon, took the time to educate him about his treatment and actively engage him in the process. Later that year, Dr. Gold was inspired to write his career report expressing a strong desire to become an orthodontist. To this day, Dr. Gold strives to have a similar impact on his patients.
As a Cedar Grove native, Dr. Gold feels privileged to serve the communities of Essex County, Passaic County, and beyond since 1987.
