WHO WE ARE
Dr Nathan Goff
Hi Everybody, Thanks for visiting our website! I’m Dr Nathan Goff. I’m also known as Bear (my father gave me this name from day one), Ted (short for teddy bear, my high school and college pals decided that I resemble a stuffed animal more than a four legged beast), Nathan or Nate; Please call me any of these, inside or out of the office. As a native Mainer, I grew up in Fryeburg, and attended Fryeburg Academy (class of '82), Bowdoin College Class of '86 and UCONN dental class of '91.

Dr. Nathan Goff's Mission Statement
I am an excellent restorative dentist. That means I am really good at fixing teeth and replacing missing teeth, which is the primary focus of my practice. That being said my most important claim is that I will ALWAYS have your best interest at heart.
My philosophy on dentistry is this: I want to do the least possible dentistry that is right for you. My job is to educate you about any problems I see in your mouth, give you options for treatment, and let you decide what you want to do. The biggest problems in dentistry that I see are access to care and overtreatment. That is why my consultations and second opinion appointments are always free of charge.
I have a great hygiene department to diagnose and treat any problems you may have with your gums/supporting bone. Sheri, Lovely, Maryssa, Denise, and Christine all have their own bios on the website. Please check them out!
Thank you again for taking the time to visit our website. We hope to meet you (or see you again if you’re already a patient) very soon.
