Dr. Ross Miller Family Dentistry

Ross Miller, D.D.S.

For 30 years, Richardson native Dr. Ross Miller has been providing gentle, compassionate dental care for people of all ages—from preschoolers to older adults. His practice offers the latest technology, including digital x-rays, CAD/CAM dentistry, and paperless charting that allows his staff to take care of patients more quickly and easily.

His office also uses a Fotona LightWalker dual-wavelength laser. The LightWalker can be used on both hard tissue and on soft tissue, treating periodontal issues and restorative issues. Additionally, it can be used to reduce snoring by tightening the soft palate of the mouth, and even to plump lips or tighten facial features.

Whether he’s working on a complex dental case or performing a routine procedure, Dr. Miller loves what he does. “The dental field plays to my strengths,” he says. “I like getting to know my patients and getting to share in their lives. I also love fixing things; it’s what I do. Dentistry is all about fixing teeth and restoring health.”

A self-proclaimed DIY guy, Dr. Miller often pops open his toolbox at home to fix cars and bikes or simply work around the house. He also enjoys working with tools for scale modeling and crafting small, delicate objects. Another one of his interests involves mounting butterflies, which requires a steady hand and a delicate touch.

“You can’t manhandle a butterfly wing – you must be gentle. I’ve found this soft touch translates to the mouth. A patient will often comment how enjoyable a routine procedure was because I wasn’t yanking and pulling at his mouth,” he says.

Dr. Miller’s treatment approach is as easygoing as his dental style. While other dentists might try to push aggressive procedures or services, Dr. Miller doesn’t employ strong-arm sales tactics. Instead, he aims to empower his patients. “I prefer a conservative approach to dentistry. My goal is to keep my patients in great dental health with minimal intervention,” says Dr. Miller. “No patient should ever feel like he’s being talked into anything, and he won’t when he’s here.

Dr. Miller likens it to getting a door ding on your car. “Just as you wouldn’t need to repaint the entire car with just a shopping cart ding, I don’t have to correct every little thing in your mouth if it’s not bothering you,” he says. “We often talk people out of expensive dental work.”

From the moment patients walk into his office, Dr. Miller wants them to feel completely at ease just like they’re at home. Rather than make the office a monument to his awards and personal achievements, it’s stylishly designed with the patient’s comfort in mind, from plush chairs to a separate nook for kids to play. Dr. Miller loves doing dentistry there and he wants his patients to love visiting him.

When he’s not on the job, Dr. Miller enjoys reading, Aggie football, and playing ice hockey. He loves hanging with his family and taking them to outdoor events and Allen Americans hockey games. He’s also the proud father/stepfather of a United States Marine, a North Texas Eagle, and an Arkansas Razorback. If you or a family member need expert dental care in a relaxed, comfortable environment, make an appointment to see Dr. Miller.
