  • Still Flossing

    Floss - We still recommend you floss every dayYou are probably aware that last week the latest dietary guidelines issued by the Departments of Agriculture and Health and Human Services quietly and without notice dropped any mention of flossing.

    There are several types of damage to teeth and gums that we often see:

happy patients

I have been a patient of Dr. Miller for years and truly appreciate the caring, professional atmosphere that he and every member of his practice project. They not only care about me as a patient, they care about me as a person as well!
