Linda G. Goltz, D.D.S.
Dr. Linda G. Goltz, D.D.S., is one of two dentists at Generations Family Dentistry. A native of Iowa, she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Augustana College in Sioux Falls, S.D., and a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Iowa in Iowa City in 1981. Goltz founded Generations Family Dentistry (originally Linda Goltz Dentistry) in 1982.
“I had an interest in art and science. Practicing dentistry perfectly combines the two,” she said. Goltz most enjoys helping people improve their overall health, and believes that Generations Family Dentistry provides the best care for mid-Michigan families. “Our continuity of care allows us to care for multiple generations, from pediatrics to geriatrics,” she said.
Goltz loves spending time with family. Bob, her husband since 1976, is a water specialist at Dow Chemical Company. They have three grown children: Eric, an attorney; Chris, a vascular surgeon; and Abby, also a dentist at Generations Family Dentistry. They have four grandchildren: Gabriel was born in 2011, Elijah was born in 2013, Lincoln was born in 2014, and Piper was born in 2016. “I pledge to treat patients like I would like to be treated,” Goltz said.
Abby L. King, D.D.S.
Dr. Abby L. King, D.D.S., is the other of two dentists at Generations Family Dentistry. She earned a Bachelor of Science degree at Hope College in Holland, Mich., and a Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. She joined Generations Family Dentistry in 2012.
“I grew up around the dental practice, and I had an exposure to all that the profession offers since I was young,” she said. “I always wanted to work in a health profession, and dentistry was the best option for me. It allows me to have a career as well as a family.” King most likes dentistry because it allows her to treat patients of all ages and to get to know them like family. “We truly care about our patients, and we strive to provide the best comprehensive care possible,” she said. In 2009, King married sweetheart Brandon, who works in the human resources department at Chemical Bank in Midland. “We enjoy spending time with family up north all year round, and we really enjoy cooking and eating good food together,” she said.
They have a son, Lincoln, who was born in 2014 and a daughter, Piper, who was born in 2016. “I will provide exceptional dental treatment to all of my patients with a caring and compassionate manner,” King pledges to her patients.
