Dr. Amanda Miller

Even from a young age, Dr. Amanda Miller knew she would pursue a career as a dentist. “Dentistry allows me to care for the well-being of my patients, and equips me with the skills to make my patients feel better about their smiles and themselves.” Dr. Miller enjoys the challenges and rewards of daily practice and encourages an open forum with her patients. She strives to provide a comfortable and caring environment and believes even the most fearful patient can have a positive experience at the dentist.
