Dr. Jeffrey Goldberg

Dr. Jeffrey Goldberg

Dr. Jeffrey Goldberg lives in Williamsville, NY, with his wife Melissa and their two daughters Madelyn and Bennett. Originally from Rochester, he graduated from Cornell University in 1999, and from the University at Buffalo School of Dental Medicine in 2003. Dr. Goldberg then completed a general practice residency at the Veterans’ Affairs Hospital in Baltimore, MD, where he received advanced training in dental implants, oral surgery, root canals, and treatment for medically complex individuals. After several years in practice, Dr. Goldberg returned to the dental school to complete a three-year residency and master’s degree in TMJ disorders and orofacial pain.  Buffalo is one of only five such programs in the nation to be accredited by the American Dental Association.  For his thesis he investigated the association of chronic facial pain and sleep disorders.  Dr. Goldberg has also earned a masters degree in business administration (MBA) from the University at Buffalo School of Management.


Dr. Goldberg is proud to introduce new concepts in the treatment of chronic facial pain, jaw dysfunction, and sleep apnea to Western New York.  In addition to his practice, he is a clinical assistant professor at the dental school, where he oversees a TMJ clinic and is teaching the first sleep apnea curriculum in the school’s history.  Dr. Goldberg is also active in several professional organizations including the American Academy of Orofacial Pain, and the American Academy of Dental Sleep Medicine.  When not working, he enjoys spending time with his family, giving tours at the Darwin Martin House, cooking, running, playing guitar, and traveling.
