Dr. Jesse Goldman was born in Boston and raised in Andover, Massachusetts. From 2008 to 2012, he attended Colby College in central Maine and graduated with a major in music and a minor in chemistry. Dr. Jesse’s dad and brother are both dentists, and while growing up they both conveyed to him their shared passion for their profession. In 2013, Dr. Jesse moved to Baltimore to study dentistry at the University of Maryland. After graduating in 2017, he attended a one-year Advanced Education in General Dentistry in Mesa, Arizona at A.T. Still University’s Advanced Care Dental Clinic. In residency, Dr. Jesse learned advanced dental techniques, and how to utilize cutting edge technology to optimize patient treatment.
Dr. Jesse’s dream has been to move to Colorado to live and work, and in the summer of 2018, he made the leap and relocated all while looking for a dental position. He greatly looks forward to helping create a warm clinic environment and to providing top-quality treatment to his patients at Rippe Dental Associates.
