MIDDLEBURY — Bob Gold has divided his life into two parts. He spent the first part as a dentist. He studied at the New York University School of Dentistry and was a clinical assistant in prosthetic dentistry at Harvard University. Gold ran a successful private practice for over 20 years in Manchester, N.H.
