About us

These two diverse and complimentary backgrounds of experience and training of Dr. Miller and Dr. Bates have come together to provide and offer comprehensive dentistry for adults and children, minimizing referrals to specialists. Several levels of sedation are available to those that are anxious about dental treatment. This new office serves many local patients as well as many from neighboring counties and states. New patients are always welcome and referrals are greatly appreciated.

Mission

Our mission as a dental team is to provide professional dental services that are technologically current, with a commitment to excellence. Every patient is important to us and our concern is that they are treated carefully with special attention to their comfort, their time, and their needs. We strive to be a value to our patients with a goal to exceed their expectations.
