Dr. Yuri Goldvasser was born in the Ukraine. After immigrating to the USA as a five-year old child, Dr. Goldvasser’s family settled in Aurora, Colorado. There, a very kind pediatric dentist treated a young Dr. Goldvasser with such care, that he decided this is what he wanted to do when he grew up.
Dr. Goldvasser received his Bachelor’s of Science degree in biology from Temple University. He then obtained his doctor of dental surgery from Meharry Medical College finishing in the top of his class. After graduating, he completed his advanced training in pediatric dentistry at Lutheran Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY.
Dr. Goldvasser devotes his professional career to all aspects of pediatric dentistry. Incorporating natural growth and development of the child, Dr. Goldvasser provides his patients with comprehensive orthodontic treatment when appropriate.
Dr. Goldvasser is also on staff at Good Samaritan Medical Center. He treats young children in the operating room who are too young to tolerate dental procedures in the office. Dr. Goldvasser recognized the need for this type of dentistry in Palm Beach County and enjoys treating this underserved population.
Dr. Goldvasser is a member of the American Dental Association, Florida Dental Association and North Palm Beach County Dental Society. He is also a member of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and the American Orthodontic Society. In addition to Florida, he also holds a current license in New York and New Jersey.
When not treating patients, Dr. Goldvasser can be found on the tennis court or spending time with his wife and two young boys.
