Healthy Confident Smiles begin here!
"We passionately believe that every person deserves a healthy, confident, brilliant smile for a lifetime."   -Dr. James R. Miller
We are a quality-based, technology-driven orthodontic practice built around the ideals of integrity, reliability, compassion and excellence. We make orthodontics convenient, fun and easy. We have delivered many hundreds of healthy, confident smiles on patients of all ages. Dr. Miller wants to help you achieve the *smile of your dreams. 

We offer advanced orthodontic care to patients of all ages using the Damon System Clear or metal braces to align the teeth and jaws. Our appliance system delivers light, biologically sensible forces with the latest technological advancements and efficiency in our field. This means nearly zero extractions, less discomfort and a more predictable, shorter time in braces than ever before with the goal of a 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, upbeat 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. 

Unlike many orthodontic practices, Golden Valley, MN is our sole location so we can 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 are evidence-based and use what is known in the scientific literature to guide our treatment decisions towards the most personalized, safe and effective treatment plan.  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.
