Dr. W. Bradley Goodine
Dr. Goodine grew up in Plaster Rock, New Brunswick and now lives in Halifax. He attended Dalhousie University in 1974, and completed two years of a BSc before being accepted into the Faculty of Dentistry in 1976. Upon acceptance he was awarded the Dalhousie Dentistry Entry Scholarship. He graduated from Dentistry in 1980. During his four years at Dalhousie he was part of many intramural sports teams, served for two years as the President of the Dalhousie Dentistry Students Society, and won an award for Oral Diagnosis in his fourth year.
After graduation, Dr. Goodine went into practice in Halifax as an Associate. Two years later, he moved his practice to Dartmouth to join forces with Dr. Melanson, where they formed the Alderney Dental Group. They’ve been at their present location ever since. Dartmouth was the perfect location for a practice - the small-town friendly feeling suited both dentists’ personalities.
Dr. Goodine enjoys all aspects of dentistry, and is particularly interested in orthodontics. He is constantly seeking to update and develop his skills and has taken continuing education in orthodontics, laser therapy, and rotary endodontics. He is interested in any training that improves his ability to serve his patients.
An avid sports fan, Dr. Goodine spends his spare time golfing, curling, and cycling. He has two grown children: his daughter is in the medical field and his son is in business. He says that for him, dentistry was the right choice because it lets him be his own boss, work with his hands, and build close relationships with an interesting and diverse group of people.
