Meet Dr. Golia

Robert T. Golia, DDS, FAGD

The restorative dentist of the 21st century must be at once a student, a practitioner, and an artist. To set my practice apart from others, I rigorously pursue extracurricular professional experience and continuing education to be fluent in all facets of dental specialties. 

I focus my practice on cosmetic, restorative dentistry and prosthetics, but tailor my services to your individual comprehensive dental health. When complex needs exist, I can gather and lead a team of specialists to outline necessary treatment and effectively orchestrate therapy for the benefit of the patient.

Dentistry, as a specialty of medicine, has become increasingly complex, and it demands a team approach to difficult problems. A commitment to engaging one’s mind, seeking out new experiences and treatment modalities, and acting in leadership roles remain essential to my dental practice; this is what sets my dental practice apart from the rest.

I actively define my practice as a relationship practice- one that treats the person and not just the patient. By emphasizing the humanistic approach to dental care, the process of dental therapy is infinitely more comfortable and more accessible. 

My position as Section Chief of Restorative Dentistry, Department of Dentistry, Yale-New Haven Hospital mandates that I must stay current with the newest trends and developments.
