He attended post-graduate work in a General Practice Residency program that was hospital based at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. Dr. Goldtrap Served 3 years of active duty in the Navy from 1997 until his Honorable Discharge in 2000 when he moved back to Fort Smith.

“Treating children is such a joy, I especially enjoy seeing them regain confidence in their smile and overall oral health.”

Dr. Goldtrap is a proud father of 5 children and swim coach to many. He is a certified swim coach and currently coaches the Fort Smith Tideriders. He’s also quite the swimmer himself! He was finally out-swam by his 12-year daughter this last year in the Beaver Lake Memorial Day 4K swim – he’s looking forward to his rematch this year!
