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. I bought my dental practice from Dr. Henry Pollard in Portland in 1992.
I currently live in Scarborough with my wife Sheri and have 2 amazing boys (Cam and Liam), 2 great dogs (Lexie and Brody), While not working, I enjoy most major sports, walks on the beach, and connecting with high school and college friends.
Christine graduated in 2010 from University of new England. In 2013, Christine obtained her local anesthesia license which enables her to treat more complex cases of periodontal disease. She started with Dr. Goff's office as a hygienist in August of 2016. Christine has worked in a periodontal office and is well versed in periodontal disease. Christine and her husband have two sons and one daughter and currently reside in Scarborough, ME. In her spare time Christine enjoys going to the beach and spending time with her friends and family.
Denise comes to our office with over 20 years of experience. Graduating from the Dental Hygiene program at Westbrook College (currently University of New England) in 1996. She grew up in Northern Maine and now resides in Wells with her husband, teenage twins, and dog Sadie.

"I'm so excited to join this team because of how gentle, caring and honest Dr Goff is when treating patients."
Megan graduated from the dental hygiene program at the University of Maine, Augusta in 2018. Prior to graduating from the dental hygiene school she became a CNA so providing a comfortable and welcoming patient experience is a top priority for her. She's currently a resident of the town of Scarborough. When not providing an exceptional experience at the office, she enjoys snowboarding, hiking, playing disc golf and most things outdoor. In the summer, you can see her riding around town on her Moped.
Sonya graduated in 2011 from UNE with her Bachelor's in Dental Hygiene. For greater than 10+ years she worked in the northern part of Maine working between 2 offices until relocating to the Gorham area with her husband and 2 young boys (4 and 1). Making a patient feel comfortable and understand the treatment is her number one objective which is a shared objective of how Dr Goff wants the patients to feel when here. Sonya loves being active and getting outdoors to explore. Working full time and being a mother has truly trained her on the art of multitasking and time management. She works hard to give her family, colleagues and especially her patients 110% of herself.
Sheri, Front Office Manager
Sheri recently took over as the Front Office Manager after a long career in marketing for a Fortune 100 company in NYC. She really enjoys getting to know all the patients and working in a small, family oriented office. When Sheri isn't checking temperatures, or scheduling appointments, she enjoys time with her husband (Dr Goff) and their two King Charles Spaniels (Lexie and Brody). She also enjoys golfing, gardening and spending time with family and friends.
Allison, Front Office Coordinator
Allie assists with all of the very busy front office responsibilities and is one of the first faces that patients will see upon entering the office. After attending college in Poughkeepsie, New York, Allie spent time moving around the country (and the world!) as a military spouse where she met a multitude of people with a variety of backgrounds. She is a people person at heart and this diverse lifestyle only enforced her passion and desire to connect with people in an interactive environment on a daily basis. In her free time, she loves spending time at the local Scarborough beaches with her husband, three kids, and pup, as well as reading, fishing, and traveling.
Maryssa, Dental Assistant
Maryssa received her Dental Assistant Certification from Dental Careers Institute in 2009. She enjoys comforting our patients and watching them leave our office with a confident smile. In her free time, Maryssa likes to create. Her current project is learning how to creating digital art. Maryssa resides in Cumberland Foreside with her 13 year old German Shepard Rottweiler whom she loves to snuggle and play fetch with regularly.
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, Allie, Maryssa, Denise, and Christine and Megan and Sonya 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.
