Garry M. Miller, DDS
Meet Dr. Miller
Dr. Garry M. Miller, a native Washingtonian, is a world renowned expert in the field of Periodontics. He attended Duke University as an undergraduate, Georgetown University School of Dentistry for his Masters and received his Certificate in Periodontics at The University of Pennsylvania Graduate School of Dental Medicine. He later served as an Associate Professor of Periodontics and Periodontal Prosthesis at the University of Pennsylvania, School of Dental and Oral Medicine for over twenty years.
Dr. Miller’s diverse training and clinical background provides a comprehensive skill set in the treatment of periodontal diseases, reconstructive periodontal surgery and dental implants. The combination of these treatment modalities has made him a frontrunner in developing comprehensive treatment planning in the industry. In 1970, Dr. Miller became one of the youngest Diplomates of The American Board of Periodontology.
Dr. Miller has authored and contributed to numerous articles on dental implants and clinical therapy as well as the textbook ‘Periodontal Therapy’. He has also lectured at universities and dental study groups throughout the United States and Europe on the diagnosis and treatment planning of Periodontal Diseases. Additionally, Dr. Miller was the leader of the Washington Study Group affiliated with the Seattle Study Group and a member of the American College or Oral Implantology, the American Society of Osseointegration and Sibley Memorial hospital’s surgical staff.
In 1967, Dr. Miller joined the private practice of Dr. S. Robert Baldinger and has successfully maintained the legacy and treatment philosophies of his former partner for over fifty years. They wanted to create an environment of treatment where patients were considered as members of their extended family – each a valued patient and friend.
Due to remarkable growth which can only be attributed to patients’ on-going trust and confidence, in July 2018, Dr. Miller decided to merge with Dr. Armin Abron in the practice DC Perio & Implants, providing the same level of innovative, highly skilled dentistry that patients have come to expect. This partnership will not only allow for more comprehensive treatment modalities, but also provide the best periodontal care that is available today with all of the advanced technologies. Dr. Abron also believes in the importance of combining academic theory with pragmatic rigor in treating patient’s specific needs, which was the bedrock of Dr. MIller’s former practice with Dr. S Robert Baldinger.
Dr. Miller is married and has three daughters and grandchildren.
