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.
Lovely joined Dr. Goff’s office at the end of 2014. She is a graduate of the University of New England in 2004 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene. Lovely also holds a license to administer local anesthesia. She is passionate about treating patients with quality care and making them feel comfortable. Lovely grew up in Southern Maine and resides locally with her husband and their young son and daughter. In her free time, she enjoys running and spending summers on the beach with her family.

Jane, Front Office Coordinator
In my time at Dr. Goff's office it has quickly become clear to me that exceptional care and compassion are what sets this office apart. The office is very warm and welcoming and it’s wonderful to be part of such an exceptional team. Before joining Dr Goff’s office, I spent four years as a patient coordinator for a local orthodontist. I currently live in Scarborough with my youngest son. I also have two older children that live in NYC and Boston. When I’m not working you will find me enjoying the outdoors and time with family.
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 currently reside in Saco, ME. In her spare time Christine enjoys going to the beach and spending time with her friends and family.
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. Jane (front desk), Lindsey (dental assistant), and Lovely and Christine (hygienists), 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.
