Meet our Dentist, John M. Willis, DDS

After growing up in South Portland, Dr. John graduated from Gordon College in Massachusetts, received a Master’s in Education from the University of Akron, and began his career in teaching and coaching basketball and soccer. This was the foundation of his exceptional ability to relate to children when he followed in the footsteps of his father, also called Dr. John Willis, who founded Falmouth Pediatric Dentistry in 1976.

After four years in dental school at SUNY Buffalo, Dr. John (the son) completed a two-year residency in the specialty of Pediatric Dentistry at St. Christopher’s Hospital for Children in Philadelphia. In 2017, he returned to Maine, and joined his current practice. Dr. John is excited to now be the majority owner of the practice, and is focused on “helping children by providing the highest quality dental care.”

Now living in Portland, Dr. John coaches a boys varsity high school basketball team; plays golf and loves lake and ocean boating; roots for Boston sport teams and the Tottenham Hotspurs soccer team in the English Premier League; and enjoys spending time with his large family, including seven nieces and nephews.
