Our Team

Dr. Amanda

Family Dentist

I grew up in Freeland, Michigan – a small town near Saginaw Valley State University, where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology and was actively pursuing a career in dentistry prior to and throughout college. During college, I was an active member of the pre-dental society and worked as a dental assistant where I developed an even deeper passion for dentistry. After graduation from SVSU, I continued my education at the University of Michigan School of Dentistry to earn my Doctorate in Dental Surgery. I was an active member of the Xi Psi Phi dental fraternity and the American Association of Women Dentists. I graduated in 2015 and moved to Union City where my husband, Kyle, was raised. I practiced dentistry in Union City and Coldwater for 2 years as an associate following graduation. I have fallen in love with this area of Michigan and in September 2017, we decided to purchase our practice from Drs. Dan & Diana Bonfiglio. This was the best decision we could have made. We've developed so many relationships with our wonderful patients. We feel very blessed to care for them! Kyle and I have 2 children - Maci (4) and Brady (1). We also have 2 dogs and one horse! In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my family, gardening, photography, being outdoors, and horseback riding.

Kyle

Office Manager

I graduated in 2010 from Saginaw Valley State University with a Bachelor's degree in Education and taught 8th grade Math & Science for several years before transitioning into the dental field. I gained my passion for dentistry through my love of helping people of all ages. The many positive interactions and educational experiences I've gained throughout my time as an educator have prepared me very well for a career in dentistry. I love working with a team to develop trustworthy relationships and high quality care for patients. My goal is to make your visit as stress-free and comfortable as possible. I look forward to getting to personally know our patients and their family members. In my spare time I enjoy being outdoors, exercising, and spending quality time with friends and family.

I received my bachelor’s degree in Dental Hygiene from the University of Michigan in 2004. I then practiced dental hygiene for 10 years in Ann Arbor before returning to Battle Creek. I now work part time for Dr. Amanda as a dental hygienist and also am a clinical instructor at Kellogg Community College in the Dental Hygiene Clinic. I love getting to know my patients better through the time I spend caring for them. In my spare time I enjoy spending time with my husband and our 3 girls!

Welcome to our team, Carley! 

Hello to my future patients! I am a 2008 Kellogg Community College Dental Hygiene graduate. I practiced dental hygiene in a private practice here in Battle Creek for 11 years following graduation and have recently spent my time working as a full-time sub in Battle Creek and the surrounding area. I have confidence in my work, enjoy educating and love establishing relationships with my patients. In my spare time I enjoy traveling with my husband and two kids, gardening & exercising. I am excited to join the Miller Family Dental team & to meet and care for you and your family members!

Carley

Dental Hygienist

I was a Dental Assistant for six years, and after having my first son I decided to be a stay at home mom. Once my boys were a bit older, I returned to the dental field and joined Dr. Amanda's team. I love the friendly atmosphere here and working with all the wonderful patients. I attended Ferris State and received my Dental Radiology Certificate at KVCC. In my spare time I love spending time with my family, biking, kayaking, camping, and being outdoors.

Amy

I attended Grand Rapids Educational Center where I was trained as a dental assistant and patient care coordinator as well as became certified in dental x-rays. I have over 20 years of experience doing what I love, helping to make patient's experience a more enjoyable one! I have been married to my wonderful husband for 30 years. We have two amazing children - Aaron and Jessica - as well as a great son-in-law, Maxx. I enjoy woodworking with my husband and cake decorating. Mostly, I love spending time with family and friends.

I have been a patient care coordinator for over 18 years now. I love helping to make dental patient's experience a positive one and getting to know more about them over the years. I love being part of this team where we're all like family. My husband and I have 2 grown children and 4 grand children. I enjoy herb gardening, cooking, traveling with my husband and spending time with family and friends. 

Congratulations to Terri & Judi on their retirement! 

Take a minute to read a farewell message below from each of them. They will be dearly missed by Dr. Amanda, Kyle, the Miller Family Dental team and the many, many patients they cared for through the years! 

Terri

Dental Hygienist

I always knew it would be difficult to walk away from this office and my career as a hygienist. I met so many incredible people over the years whose friendships I will always treasure! I worked for wonderful dentist who guided me in my work and career, and my coworkers have come to be my second family. I was rewarded in seeing the progress made by so many patients in bettering their oral health, which is of course the ultimate goal! After 42 years, my work is now done. I will miss everyone terribly, and hope to see you again sometime!

-Terri Kipp RDH

Judi

Dental Hygienist

It has been one of the greatest privileges of my life to have been a part of the Miller Family Dental and Bonfiglio Family Dental teams for the last 23 years.  Coming in as a dental hygienist in 1997 to work with dear life-long friends Dan and Diana, through the transition to Dr. Amanda and Kyle Miller in 2017, I have felt I was part of a second family.  Not only did I have generous, awesome bosses and incredible, hardworking co-workers, but some of the kindest, funniest, most interesting and outstanding patients on the planet!  I want to say “Thank You” to all of you for being a part of my wonderful “dental journey” and I will miss you all so much!  As I turn the next page into retirement, I look forward to spending more time with my family, more time traveling (when it’s allowed!), sewing, reading, researching my ancestry, and cheering on the MSU Spartans!  Battle Creek isn’t so big…I hope I’ll run into you at Meijer or Sam’s Club…and we can catch up, and I’ll always remind you, “Don’t forget to floss!”

Our Services

Services and Procedures

 

Your life is busy and filled with obligations, and getting great dental care shouldn’t be another chore you have to worry about. Miller Family Dental is a family dental practice in Battle Creek that addresses all your dental needs, from monitoring your child’s oral health to preserving your beautiful smile as you age. We work hard to provide you with a comfortable, stress-free dental visit where you feel welcomed and treated like family.

We’re here to provide the treatments you need in a friendly, relaxed setting. Dr. Miller continues to expand her knowledge to bring you updated, state-of-the-art dental care. Whatever your concern, we’ll work with you to help you achieve trouble-free oral health.

Restoring Your Smile

 

In spite of our best efforts to keep your teeth healthy, it may become necessary to perform treatments to restore a damaged tooth. If missing teeth are a problem for you, we can help you decide if dentures, bridges, or dental implants are right for you.

 

Tooth-colored fillings and dental crowns are appropriate solutions for teeth that need to be strengthened and protected from further damage. Nobody likes to think about the prospect of having a root canal or oral surgery. But we can make your treatment significantly easier with sedation options like nitrous oxide that will help you relax while we help you achieve excellent oral health.

 

 

Your initial appointment with us will include a review of health and dental concerns, visual exam, oral cancer screening, necessary x-rays, and a consultation with the dentist.

 

To have a more timely first appointment, you may download and print required paperwork and bring the completed forms with you.

Children's Dentistry

When should your child first see the dentist?  The Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends children see the dentist when their first tooth erupts or 12 months of age.  Early intervention and discussion with pediatric dentistry is recognized as the best method for preventing tooth decay.  Periodic visits starting in the first year of life can get help your child develop a dental home where he or she can feel comfortable at his or her dental appointment.

 

Baby teeth are important too!  Baby teeth usually fall out on their own starting at age 6.  Their primary role is to provide a guide as the permanent teeth erupt. When baby teeth are lost early to decay, the back teeth (molars) drift forward causing more crowding when the adult teeth finally erupt.

Baby teeth also harbor bacteria. Thankfully, most bacteria in our mouths are healthy.  When kids get decay, they have much higher levels of Strep. mutans (a type of bacteria causing decay).  If families can eliminate or minimize the amounts of these bad bacteria, they will be able to prevent all their teeth from ever having a cavity.

If kids have problems with decay in their baby teeth, this same bacteria will grow on the adult teeth when they come into the mouth.  That is why saying, “It’s okay that my child’s baby teeth have decay, one day, they’ll fall out anyway,” is a misconception.

 

Cavities can be prevented!  Talk with Dr. Amanda or your hygienist about specific ways you and your family can help manage oral health.

Teeth Whitening

 

The difference between professional and over-the-counter  whitening treatments.

 

Non-professional whitening treatments are over the counter products such as strips and toothpaste. These products vary in their price, difficulty of use, and effectiveness.

 

Philips Zoom professional whitening is a fast, effective, and safe way to whiten your teeth. Your dental professional will either apply the treatment for you, or fit you with customized trays so you can do the treatment at home.

 

Results from professional treatments can be immediate (up to 8 shades whiter in 45 minutes), and because a dental professional is involved, the process is safe, reliable and hassle free.

Digital X-Rays

 

Radiographs are used in dentistry to evaluate gum disease, tooth decay, and bone and tooth pathology.  They are a necessary part of a comprehensive dental exam.  It is the primary method for detecting decay between the teeth. The incorporation of digital xrays into our Battle Creek dental practice has allowed:

- Shorter wait times to process the image

- Improved visualization

- Up to 80% less radiation exposure than conventional film x-rays

Intra-Oral Cameras
During your visit at our office, your hygienist or Dr. Amanda may use a device called an intra-oral camera. This is a small camera used for taking photos in the mouth of teeth, gums and tissues. We use this camera to better communicate with you what is going on with your dental health. Whether it is to show you a crack we've found in a tooth or to monitor changes over time in an area of your tissue, we will explain what we find and show you the photos. 

This is just one of the ways that we include you in the decisions about your oral health. Communication is the key and we pride ourselves on being excellent at this!
