Health-Focused General Dentist, Integrative Biologic Dental Medicine
Jean Marie Nordin, DDS, IBDM, grew up on a farm in Kansas and learned the core values of hard work, helping others in the community, and all-natural food. After completing dental school, Jean began her professional career at a dental practice in West Newton, MA where she met a like-minded dentist and business partner, Bob Evans, DMD. In April, 2004, Jean and Bob opened Groton Wellness, a leading center for holistic health care. Founded on the principles of holistic dental health, their vision expanded from a dental practice to include functional medicine, a detoxification spa, and an all-natural, farm-to-table café.
Dr. Nordin has a serious passion for learning and teaching. On top of her Doctorate of Dental Surgery, she is board certified in Integrative Biologic Dental Medicine. Jean is also a certified SMART trainer. This is a Stress Management and Resiliency Training (SMART) developed by the Benson-Henry Institute in conjunction with Harvard Medical School. Dr. Nordin now teaches to staff and other healthcare providers.
Dr. Nordin has won many awards, including the Fellowship award in 2003 from the Institute of Natural Dentistry. In 2012 she was named one of the Top 25 Women in Dentistry and in 2013 was honored by The Commonwealth Institute at their Top 100 Women-Led Businesses in Massachusetts celebration.
Jean is passionate about growing a community of health-conscious people who understand, practice and maintain a joyful and healthy life. She supports whole-body healing practices, local farms, food rights and providing people with a choice for all-natural food. She frequently stands up to oppose injustices in our food supply and distribution system and is actively involved with NOFA (Northeast Organic Farming Association) and the Weston A. Price Foundation.
