Healthy Confident Smiles begin here!
"Your smile has the power to change your life."

We are a quality-based, technology-driven, efficient orthodontic practice and have delivered many hundreds of healthy, confident smiles on patients of all ages. Dr. Miller has the knowledge, experience and artistry to help you achieve the smile of your dreams. He is an expert on facial and smile proportions and has conducted academic research and has lectured extensively on smile esthetics to University of Minnesota dental students, orthodontic residents, and at many continuing education events. He uses this specialized knowledge combined with his talents with the Damon System to individualize treatment so each patient can look and function their very best.

We offer specialized orthodontic care to patients of all ages using the Damon System to align the teeth and jaws. The Damon system uses passive self ligating bracket and wire technology to deliver light gentle forces to the teeth. This means nearly zero extractions, less discomfort and a more predictable, shorter time in braces than ever before for a wide, healthy, confident, amazing lifelong smile. 

* Dr. Miller efficiently treats the vast majority of his patients without extractions, spacers or headgear using the Damon system.

Our clinic
is fresh, clean and contemporary.  We provide a comfortable and pleasant atmosphere with great music and WiFi for busy parents. We have an experienced, compassionate and talented team who care deeply for their patients. Because Golden Valley is our sole location (this is important to you), we are able to dedicate all our resources and easier scheduling for your family's busy schedule. A consistent comment from our patients is that we are on-time and reliable. We do not extract teeth unless absolutely necessary.  

Dr. James R. Miller is passionate about his work. He is a Damon Premier Provider and has had 14+ years of clinical experience in Minneapolis and St. Louis Park with exceptional results. He is board certified by the American Board of Orthodontics (the only orthodontic specialty board recognized by the American Dental Association and sponsored by the American Association of Orthodontists).  

We utilize the best technology that orthodontic science has to offer, from the Damon System and Insignia computer-aided smile design to the use of digital impressions and 3-D technology. We have accelerated treatment options which can speed your treatment time to a matter of months instead of years. We have a low-dose digital x-ray system and seek out the best products and appliances on the market. We use secure and encrypted electronic health records.
