Richard P. Miller DMD, PC

My name is Dr. Richard P. Miller and I was born and raised in Grants Pass, Oregon. I graduated from Grants Pass High School in 1979 and enrolled at Western Oregon University. I received a Bachelors Degree in Natural Sciences in 1983 and was accepted at the Oregon Health Sciences University in Portland that same year. In 1985 I married my High School sweetheart, Mary Kay, who had earned her degree and was a practicing Dental Hygienist. After receiving my Doctorate in General Dentistry, in 1987, we moved back to Grants Pass and entered into a Partnership with Dr. Rex Titus at our present location. We have since purchased the Practice and employ 4 full time and 6 part-time staff members. I am an avid golfer, but my true love is Boats and boating. Running the Rogue River is always an adventure, but touring the ocean is also intriguing. During our journey, Mary Kay and I have raised three fine, loving boys.
