Dr. Sean Goolsby
FAMILY AND CHILDREN’S DENTIST
I was born in Kotzebue, Alaska, the son of a bush pilot/carpenter/dog musher. From my earliest years I remember thinking that traveling by bush plane or dog sled was completely normal; it was how everybody got around, wasn't it? Growing up, I had a very extensive outdoors life, frequently hiking, camping, mountain climbing and exploring with my family. I was the second-born of ten kids, so the joys and chaos of living in a large family are very familiar to me. I married my true love, Becky, in April of 2003, and then began what I didn't know at the time would be a decade of intensive university attendance and professional development, eventually leading me to a career in dentistry. I have two beautiful children, Simon and Hannah. They bring so much joy into my life! I would say that my family is my top priority.
I love music, movies and food (side note: Minnesota brought poutine into my life- for that I will be eternally grateful). I love to laugh. You'll find that I have an unusual sense of humor. I’m big into board games and all things geeky. I love being so far out in the wild that you would have no hope for rescue if you needed it. I LOVE the ocean!
I believe one of the highest virtues anyone can aspire to is compassion. It gives me great honor and a sense of humility to experience and witness the process of healing as my patients and I set goals and work to achieve them. Receiving any type of medical or dental treatment is challenging - at times even intimidating - and I understand that. I promise to always treat you with compassion and with an open ear to hear what your concerns or personal challenges are. I am committed to do anything within my power to make sure you have the best possible experience while you are here.
