Dr. Goldberg is pleased to continue the tradition of creating beautiful smiles on PEI as Dr. Matheson has done for the past 30 years.
Dr. Avi grew up in a small village between Vancouver and Whistler, BC where he enjoyed being part of a tight knit community with many opportunities for outdoor activities nearby. He completed his undergraduate studies locally before venturing to the East Coast for his dental training at Dalhousie University, where he graduated with distinction and received the University Medal in Dentistry. There he met his beautiful wife and found his love of the Maritimes.
After graduation he returned to the West Coast and practiced general dentistry alongside his father for three years before returning to school. He completed his Master’s Degree and Certificate in Orthodontics at Saint Louis University as well as a Cleft Palate fellowship at SSM Cardinal Glennon Children’s Medical Center. This was followed by examinations to earn his designation as a Certified Specialist and a Fellow of the Royal College of Dentists of Canada in 2012.
While he grew up on the West Coast, Dr. Avi is no stranger to Atlantic Canada. Having married a New Brunswicker and lived in Fredericton, NB for 7 years, he considers himself to be a Maritimer by choice. He only wishes he had found the Island sooner!
He is well-established as an orthodontist in the Maritimes, having helped children, teens, and adults smile across New Brunswick and Nova Scotia since 2012, and PEI since early 2019. Aside from his joy of interacting with patients, he is proud to be involved as a part-time clinical instructor at Dalhousie University. He is also an active member of many orthodontic and dental organizations, and has been a volunteer board member in such organizations as Smiles 4 Canada, the Atlantic Orthodontic Association, the Northeastern Society of Orthodontics, and the Canadian Association of Orthodontists.
Considering his love of the outdoors you may cross paths with him fly fishing or hiking in Bonshaw or some of the other PEI trails. He enjoys skiing, snowshoeing, SUP, and the many culinary experiences the island has to offer. He and his wife Amy live in Charlottetown and are excited to call the Island their forever home.
