meet our professionals
At Greene and Miller Dentistry, we take pride in our friendly, comfortable environment and our professional staff. Our staff has years of experience working in dentistry. We all share a commitment to learning, which provides you with the most current practices that dentistry has to offer.
Drs. Greene and Miller have a long history together, starting as classmates in dental school. They opened their practice as original tenants of Fayetteville Square in 1985.
Our recently remodeled office incorporates many of the newest technologies, yet we still keep the atmosphere of the home office I grew up with. I take pride in our staff which enables us to deliver our best with a personal touch.
Dr. Thomas F. Greene
Dr. Thomas F. Greene
Dr. Greene grew up watching his father practice dentistry in a small town office for over 40 years. It seemed natural to follow in his footsteps.
After receiving a BS in Biology from St. Lawrence University, he attended State University of New York at Buffalo Dental School and graduated in 1982 with his DDS degree. Following a year-long General Practice Residency at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Richmond, Virginia, he returned to Central New York and opened this practice with Dr. Miller.
As a member of the Onondaga County Dental Society, New York State Fifth District Dental Society and American Dental Association, Dr. Greene keeps up to date on the many advancements in dental care, attending the sponsored continuing education courses.
Chittenango has been home for the Greene family for the past 20 plus years, where he and his wife, Barbara, live with their many rescued pets. When not maintaining their home or caring for the critters, they enjoy watching and helping their two young adult daughters', Elizabeth and husband Tommy, and Katherine, lives unfold.
Dr. Michael J. Miller
Dr. Miller grew up in Corning, New York, and after high school attended Cornell University where he majored in Microbiology and played football for the Big Red.
Dr. Miller attended State University of New York at Buffalo School of Dentistry and received his DDS degree in 1982. After a one-year residency program at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Buffalo, he moved to Syracuse and worked in a dental office in Camillus for a number of years before partnering with Dr. Greene to open this practice. That was in 1985, although it seems like only yesterday!
Dr. Miller is a member of the American Dental Association, the New York State Dental Society, the Fifth District Society, and the Onondaga Dental Society. He is also a member of the Academy of Laser Dentistry, and the Spear Dental Study Club. Through constant ongoing education, he has continued to develop his skills, acquire new knowledge and learn new techniques.
Outside the office, Dr. Miller lives with his wife, Julie, in the Tully area. In the past they operated a small organic farm, but now that their three daughters are on their own (or at least working on that), they have downsized the homestead. They now enjoy vegetable and flower gardening as well as hiking, fishing, and bike riding.
I will make your experience friendly, relaxed and enjoyable. I try to treat everyone with a level of care and attention I would want to receive as a patient.
