Meet Dr. Miller

Dr. Lance Miller

Dr. Lance Miller

Dr. Lance Miller is a lifetime resident of the Northland. Having been raised in Platte Woods, he attended Park Hill High School and graduated in 1983. He then went to Nebraska Wesleyan University for his undergraduate degree and then returned to Kansas City to attend dental school at UMKC School of Dentistry, graduating in 1991. When deciding upon a career in health care, Dr. Miller was drawn to the artistic side of dentistry as he enjoyed working with his hands. He also enjoyed the family-like feel of a dental office that treated generations of families over time. After completing dental school, Dr. Miller worked in two practices for a few years before purchasing the practice of a longtime family friend and partial inspiration for his career choice, Dr. Bob Peterson, in 1993. He has remained in the location since.

Dr. Miller considers his practice an extension of his family. It is a place where the staff works together as a team to care for the patients in a manner that represents how they themselves would want to be taken care of. A balance of modern technology is combined with tried and true techniques to provide reliable, consistent care. Of course, a superb hygiene department helps patients maintain their teeth so the overall focus can remain on prevention. Dr. Miller is a member of the ADA, the MDA, the Clay Platte Dental Society and the University Study Club.

Dr. Miller and his wife Leslie have raised four daughters, two of whom are now married. They love spending time with all of them and especially their three grandchildren. Both Dr. Miller and his wife enjoy exercise, working outdoors around their property and traveling the world.
