About Generations Cosmetic and Family Dentistry
The leading provider of quality dentistry and personalized oral health services in Tampa.
Generations Dentistry is a throwback to when your dentist was the one place you went for all your dental needs. Most conditions are treated here quickly and painlessly. A third-generation dentist understands the frustration of modern-day dentistry with referrals all over town to take care of your teeth. We will be happy to explain in detail what we can accomplish but maintain an excellent referral system when needed. We feel like our referrals are a reflection of our own care so great pride is taking in whom you will see outside of our doors. We can explain every treatment plan with time and care to achieve full understanding of all options for each and every situation. We do it all here from routine care, fixing cavities to Oral surgery and Root canals. our fast friendly from office staff will be happy to explain all questions and look forward to hearing from you!
Our office is equipped with all the latest technology to ensure quick and pain-free dentistry. We start with digital x-rays and tablets to display fully all conditions noted in each and every exam. Dr. Goldschein underwent a residency after dental school to gain further education in Oral Surgery and Endodontics, something the vast majority of dentists do NOT do. Recently we acquired a digital scanner to create the most beautiful and proper fitting crowns and bridges ever possible in dentistry. Our patients leave with the healthiest and whitest smiles in all of Tampa Bay!
David Goldschein, D.D.S.
Dr. David Goldschein’s grandfather, Irving Goldschein, was born in New York City in 1915. He grew up with a dream and attended the University of Pennsylvania Dental School. Irving raised his family in Queens while running two practices, one in Manhattan and the other in Queens. As time marched on, his son Harry began to catch wind of that flame, and Irving passed on his torch to Harry.
The second generation went on to follow his father in becoming a dentist. After attending pharmacy school, Harry Goldschein graduated from the University of Buffalo Dental School in 1978. He has been in practice in Casselberry, Florida, since 1981 and is still in private practice today. It was inevitable that the natural talent that runs through the Goldschein family would organically instill light in yet another generation.
Dr. Goldschein was born in Buffalo, NY while his father was attending University of Buffalo Dental school. Shortly after, his father served as a Naval Dentist on the Orlando Naval base, which was where he grew up. After graduating from Lake Mary High School, he attended University of Florida and earned a Bachelor’s degree in Microbiology and Cell science with the goal to become a genetic engineer. The passion for laboratory work as a career wasn’t there so he moved to California. There he enrolled at Santa Barbara City College and took some business classes. The path to the future became clear, he would follow in the footsteps of not only his father but his Grandfather who graduated from University of Illinois Dental School in 1939. Dr. Goldschein attended NYU Dental School and after completing a General Practice residency at St. Luke’s- Roosevelt Hospital he decided to head south, back to Florida. He enjoys the active outdoor lifestyle Florida has to offer. Interests include boating, fishing, bike riding and running Bayshore Blvd. He is an avid concert enthusiast of all types of music. Always interested in finding great new restaurants and loves to talk food and wine with his patients. Living in downtown Tampa, has been a great watching this city develop and grow into one of the best places in the world to live. Always traveling but happy to call Tampa home.
Meet Our Team
Jillian Fonseca – Office Manager
￼I’ve had the pleasure to work with Dr. Goldschein for 5 years now and I’ve been in the dental field since 2009. I’ve always been passionate about dentistry, in fact, as a child, I would always remind my parents it was time for my dental check up! I understand not everyone shares my passion but one of the things I enjoy most about dentistry is to see how changing a patient’s smile transforms their lives. It is important to me that each of you enjoy that same feeling of ease and confidence in our office. There’s nothing like the satisfied look on a patients face when they’ve navigated the sometimes confusing world of insurance/financing and the unknown of treatment to come out the other end with an even bigger better smile. I’m here to calm fears, answer questions and help make treatment possible.
A little bit about me, I’m the proud mother of a daughter (Anaya), she also likes to spend time at our office! In my free time, I enjoy watching her play soccer, going to the beach, rollerblading and traveling -whenever possible.

Stephanie Miller – Dental Hygienist RDH
￼Growing up in the Akron, OH area, I graduated high school with the aspirations of becoming a dental hygienist. This was a dream of mine since middle school. I graduated from Youngstown State University in 2006. From there I moved to Maryland and began my dream as a dental hygienist. I moved to Florida in 2014 and began practicing alongside Dr. Goldschein in September of 2017.
As a newer member to the practice I have really enjoyed getting to know the exceptional staff and the passions we all share for dentistry and our patients. So far it has been a pleasure. I look forward to getting to know each of our patients and building a relationship through the passion I have for providing oral health care and education.
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my family and our two dogs! I have children who participate in ice skating and baseball. I also enjoy the beach, camping, hiking, and shopping!
