Welcome to Our Dental Family!
Welcome to Integrity Dental, and thank you for visiting our website!
When we set out to start Integrity Dental in late 2020, it was with one main focus in mind - you, our patients. We enjoy being different. Our goal is to not be like everyone else. We offer the exceptional dental experience we believe every patient deserves.
We offer a space where our patients receive gentle, comfortable and compassionate care.
We offer a unique approach to your dental experience and actively work to go above and beyond, because frankly, we're just not okay with the status quo. Most importantly, we care a lot about our patients. At Integrity Dental, you're never a number. You're a person, and we enjoy getting to know you and your loved ones while helping to identify and address your unique, individual needs and goals. Then again, none of this really means anything until you actually experience what we're all about.
Get in touch if you're ready to make a change, and we'll look forward to showing you what we're all about!
Your partner in dental health,
~ Dr. Jonathan Nutt ("Dr. J")
Meet Your Team
We care a lot about smiles, and even more about the people behind them.
In our practice, you're more than just a patient - you're a person.
Dr. Jonathan Nutt ("Dr. J")
Founder + Dentist + Foodie
Dr. Jonathan Nutt ("Dr. J") is a board-certified general dentist and the proud owner of Integrity Dental.
Dr. J grew up in New Hampshire, where he received his B.S. in Biology from Rivier University. He moved to Maine to attend dental school, and in 2018 he proudly earned his Doctor of Dental Medicine from the University of New England in Portland. While living in Maine, Dr. J came to love the state and its community of people, and the rest, as they say, is history.
Dr. J is incredibly passionate about connecting with his patients on a personal level, taking the time to understand their unique needs and goals, and working to make their visits to the dentist both comfortable and enjoyable. He's passionate about taking his time to offer each patient the best possible experience, from catching up with each patient during checkups, to taking the extra time to be gentle with numbing or to perfect a restoration. One of Dr. J's most favorite things is hearing a patient say after their visit with us just how much they enjoyed their experience and actually look forward to coming back!
Dr. J is passionate about learning and expanding his knowledge and skill set. While a minimum of 40 hours of continuing education (CE) are required of dentists every two years to maintain active licensure, Dr. J feels that's not enough for him and actively pursues at least double that amount. Not just for the sake of keeping up with the constantly evolving field of dentistry, but even more so because he truly enjoys learning more about his craft.
Dr. J is a proud 2023-2024 member of his local Breakwater Study Club, an offshoot of the Seattle Study Club. He enjoys learning through the renowned Spear Education institute and attends many in-person CE courses throughout each year both in New England and across the country.
However, he is most passionate about his ongoing studies with the prestigious L.D. Pankey Institute in Key Biscayne, Florida, a center for advanced dental education that focuses on important fundamental dental topics, notably occlusion - the relationship between our Temporomandibular Joints (TMJs), facial muscles, and teeth - which he considers to be one of the most important foundational pieces to any successful dental treatment plan.
Dr. J likes to say that understanding these principles is like an auto mechanic understanding how a car engine works and making sure it runs smoothly before focusing on how the car looks. Imagine driving the coolest or most beautiful car on the road but neglecting what's under the hood. The same is true when it comes to our mouths. An occlusion that's well-understood and accounted for will more often result in a better long-term outcome for patients. However, when these concepts are not understood and/or are overlooked, trouble is bound to follow.
Dr. J is extremely passionate about encouraging a team-based approach to patient care, and his patients know well that he loves taking time to educate each patient so they feel empowered to play a more active role in their care.
Dr. J is a proud member of many national and local organizations, including the American Dental Association (ADA), Maine Dental Association (MDA), Greater Portland Dental Society (GPDS), Academy of General Dentistry (AGD), and the Yarmouth Chamber of Commerce. He and our team are also proud sponsors of local organizations, such as the Yarmouth school district and Yarmouth Little League.
When not at the office, Dr. J enjoys spending time with his family, getting some fresh air (preferably by the ocean), cooking, and enjoying the local and ever-changing food scene.
Patient Care Coordinator + Pianist
Jonathan is the friendly voice that greets you over the phone, and the even friendlier smile that welcomes you to our practice at each visit!
A lifelong Mainer, Jonathan grew up in "Sunny Saco" where he attended Thornton Academy. He studied classical piano with the world-renowned pianist, Laura Kargul, at the University of Southern Maine Osher School of Music, where he received his B.A. in Piano Performance. He is currently enrolled in the graduate program for piano performance, and is proud to say he has a direct lineage to Beethoven. He has been the recipient of multiple scholarships and awards.
Needless to say, Jonathan spends much of his time practicing piano when not at the office - often 6 hours or more at a time! He has a knack for learning languages and is fluent in French. He enjoys writing calligraphy, reading books on many different topics, and cooking. A former barista, he's also very passionate about good coffee and enjoys brewing up delicious beverages and making beautiful latte art with his home espresso bar!
