“Dr. Al, the Kiddies’ Pal” has been a nickname given to Dr. Golden for over 25 years. Many thousands of patients later… the label still sticks, as many can attest to, even those now grown-up. “I’m lucky enough to have a profession where I can help people and a specialty that I truly love. I get to work with the most tender of patients, many of whom really need specialized help. I do my best to help them receive the optimum in dental care without the trauma that has scared so many of today’s adults. It has been a distinct pleasure to see so many of my patients grow up with happy, healthy smiles and the even greater honor of doing the same for their children.”
