Jeanell Moracha


Case finished in only 8 months

I am 27 and just finished with my braces treatment. At my consultation, the initial estimated length given by Dr. Miller for my braces was about 12 months, but it actually only took 8 months (which was even better). The staff is outstanding! Super smart, resourceful, kind, experienced, efficient and really gives each client the same personal attention. I always looked forward to going to my ortho appointments monthly and everyone in Suite 220 made my experience so worthwhile. I would highly recommend Advances in Orthodontics & rate the quality of care and the staff as excellent.I feel so grateful for the solid investment I made in the overall beauty of my smile. It truly is priceless!





wearing Damon Clear Braces with missing front tooth replaced

Dr. Miller is the best orthodontist out there. He listens to his patients and takes their concerns to heart. He also educates his patients on oral health and how to take good care of your dental hygiene. Advance Ortho staff is really friendly and informative. Dr. Miller has gone the extra mile for me before an interview to get my teeth looking great. I have received several compliments while wearing my braces and how visible the changes are. Hats off to Advance Ortho and I would recommend Dr. Miller and his team to anyone. Thank You for all you do.





Severe Underbite and Crossbite Corrected Without Surgery

Dr. Miller was exceptional to work with. Our daughter had a unique case and multiple phases to her treatment. He kept us informed and was always willing to listen and answer our questions. Our daughter was welcomed with a smile by the staff at each appointment and felt comfortable when she was in their care. She loved the office atmosphere and the trendy music they always played. On occasion they would let her choose what to play! The confidence in our daughter’s smile amazes us each day. Dr. Miller comes with our highest recommendations.
