“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.” – Walt Disney
It is often said that when you love what you do, you don’t work a day in your life. I have practiced dentistry since 1999 and have loved every moment.
Dentistry gives me the opportunity to not only do what I love, but also to be with people who mean so much to me every day. I enjoy the chance to meet so many fantastic people and be able to build wonderful relationships that have lasted for so many years. Each day, incredible people give me the chance to be part of their lives and make a difference. Whether it’s a small impact or one that has a big change in their health, I am privileged to be able to participate in their life.
Education and Continuing Education
I attended Indiana University for my undergraduate education and the University of Iowa College of Dentistry for my Doctorate of Dental Surgery. I also attended the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics for my residency and training in medically compromised patient care and advanced education in general dentistry.
In the years since completing my formal education, I have continued to keep abreast of the most advanced, clinically sound procedures and technology. I am involved in education for Invisalign®, TMJ dysfunction and treatment, implants, sleep apnea, cosmetic and restorative dentistry, and endodontics, which allows me to provide the utmost level of care to my patients.

I like to refer to my staff as my Dream Team. They are exceptional in everything they do, whether they’re greeting you when you call or come into the office or helping you back in the rooms. I have had the pleasure of working with each person on this team in some fashion throughout my career, and now we are all under one roof. Our mutual compassion and understanding is shown daily to our patients. I am so blessed to be with each of these individuals every day; they make everything fun.
I am married to Dr. Eric Van Miller, a local pediatric dentist and a Green Bay native. We have three wonderful children and a dog named Tank. I love to garden, cook, and spend time with family and friends. If I’m not in the office or at home, you can probably find me at one of my kids’ activities.
