He will not fix a preexisting problem from another dentist. Wasted my time and $$$$. Walked out of his office with the same pain I walked in with.

DOES NOT ACCEPT any dental insurance. You will pay 100% out of pocket for any procedure. Staff will say its 100% convered but its not. This place is all about the cash. Read the fine print and implications on their website about how you are 100% financially responsible for any procedures and how any coverage is based upon your agreement with your dental other words, you WILL pay cash for it all. This place is super expensive. I was charged $200 just for an evaulations and x-rays.

Very nice and clean office and very nice receptionist and dental assistant. My boyfriend went to him and he took out his wisdom teeth. Great job and not any pain he said. I went to him twice and he keeps referring me out to other dentist to have my implant crowns redone. He doesn't charge much for consults, and always gives me a toothbrush and other new dental samples but never wants to go behind another dentist when it comes to replacing implants. So I would recommend going to him first if you need implants. He seems like a real honest and likeable dentist. I wish he offered the LANAP procedure. That is the best way to fight gum disease.

Gave me dental implants knowing all I needed was the LANAP procedure because it was easier for him and profitable. Left me with a bunch of pain, implants and out thousands.

I went to Dr. Miller needing periodontal help in 2006. A very good friend recommended him to me. Instead, he pulled my teeth and put in implants. It didn't hut at all. The noise from the drilling was a little scary sounding though. It cost me thousands and that wasn't including the crowns. At the time, they didn't offer the LANAP procedure. I see now they do. Yay! But a little too late for me. He is a very nice dentist. They let me make payment arrangements. The office is very nice and clean. I wish I had the LANAP procedure done at the time. It would have saved my teeth and a boat load of pain and money.
Tips & Advices
To prevent periodontal disease, it's important to brush your teeth after meals, since this prevents food debris from getting lodged between your teeth and gums and causing plaque. Daily flossing should also be a key part of your oral health regimen, since this removes food particles and plaque that a toothbrush may not be able to reach. Smoking increases the risk of gum disease, so avoid this habit if you want to maintain healthy gums.
Certain periodontal treatments are completely painless and gentle enough to be administered without anesthesia. Treatments such as deep scaling, root planing, and those involving surgery are performed with the help of a local anesthetic or a sedative.
One of the most common types of treatments performed by periodontists is gum grafting. This is a surgical procedure that grafts your gum tissue to reverse gum recession, and it can prevent further recession and bone loss. Periodontists also perform laser treatment for gum disease, dental implant installation, pocket reduction procedures, and dental crown lengthening.
In periodontal treatment that involves surgery, many periodontists use a local anesthetic that works to completely numb the area being treated. Oral or IV sedation can also be used, and with this approach, you'll either be completely asleep, or drift in and out of sleep while the procedure is being performed.
Gum disease can be treated with the help of a dentist or periodontist. If gum disease is in its early stages, a professional cleaning will remove tartar before it leads to infection that can cause a more serious condition. With advanced cases of gum disease, infected gums can be treated with scaling and root planing.
