Patients of Dr. Carter Kolodny, welcome to your new dental home; Golden Rule Dental Care, the private practice of Dr. Nathan J Flesher!


If you’ve been redirected to this page, then you may be a former patient of Dr. Carter Kolodny. We’re sure you’ve heard that he and his wife, Tessa, have begun their next adventure together – retirement!

As a fellow dentist in Arlington, Dr. Kolodny was not only a colleague whose work I have admired over the years – he is a friend – and I warmly wish him the best.

Dr. Kolodny knew that you may feel anxious about your future dental care – continuing regular care, fulfilling treatment plans, knowing who to go to with a dental emergency, where to go for denture relines, and more... That’s why I’m so very honored he chose me to take care of you, his valuable patients. I’m grateful to receive his trust and to extend my hand to you to help you feel at ease as we welcome you to Golden Rule Dental Care.

I invite you to explore our website to learn more about the practice and the experiences you can expect when you visit. Here are some highlights…
