Dr. Kate attended undergraduate college at Cornell University and then dental school at Case Western Reserve University, graduating in 1992. She grew up in Norton, has practiced here her entire career, and now resides in West Akron. Dr. Kate provides a broad scope of services, and she has a special interest in helping anxious patients.

She has performed more than 2,500 successful sedations, keeping patients comfortable and safe and helping them improve their dental health.

Dr. Kate believes strongly in giving back and has been involved in service to her community since she was young. She has spent many hours providing free dental for those in need, from volunteering at the Cleveland Free Clinic in dental school, to working with patients from Open M ministries in Akron, to a dental mission trip to Honduras. She received a Dental Hero award from her work with the Children of Barberton Head Start. She received a community leadership award from the Southern Summit County Chambers of Commerce for her outstanding community leadership and contributions.

Dr. Nate Minter

Dr. Nate Minter

Dr. Kate Raymond is proud to welcome Dr. Nate Minter, DMD, to her dental practice in Norton.

Dr. Nate is an accomplished general dentist who has been in practice over six years. He earned his dental degree from Case Western Reserve University – Dr. Kate’s alma mater! – in 2012 following a Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Florida in 2008. After dental school, Dr. Nate joined the United States Air Force, practicing in both Texas and New Mexico until 2017, when he returned to Ohio to begin private practice.

Dr. Nate has extensive training in IV Sedation and he is looking forward to helping anxious patients receive the dental treatment they need comfortably and safely. His time in the Air Force gave him the opportunity to treat a vast array of patients and challenges and he feels that he brings a unique set of talents to his profession: “My strengths lie in listening to patients compassionately and helping them feel calm. My military background reinforced the importance of integrity, honesty, and treating people with respect,” he says.

Dr. Nate met his wife, Dr. Theresa Mellion-Minter, while in dental school in Cleveland, and at the end of his military service they decided to settle in the Akron/Canton area where Theresa is from originally and practices as an orthodontist. Dr. Nate knows the Ohio winters won’t be quite the same as Florida but he is looking forward to immersing himself in all our area has to offer. Most of all, he is looking forward to practicing dentistry in our community!
