"I have an enormous appreciation for the trust that patients put in their dentist. Honoring and upholding this relationship of trust is of upmost importance in my practice of dentistry. I enjoy taking time with each patient to discuss all possible treatment options, which I believe empowers the patient to make informed decisions about their care and dental health. Providing patients with knowledge, meticulous care, and a comfortable experience in the dental chair is my primary objective for every patient, every day." --Dr. Mills
