Meet The Doctors

Dr. Ty D. Milner

Dr. Ty D. Milner is joining his father to continue the family practice and more importantly to continue providing quality oral health care to existing and new patients of Milner Dentistry.

    “One of the most enjoyable parts of being a dentist is the ability to work with so many different people.  While doing so, I try to build a one-on-one relationship with all of my patients and use a patient first approach.  I also believe that patient education is of utmost importance, please do not hesitate to ask any questions.

            I know that going to the dentist can be a stressful time or create some anxiety, but I strive to make each and every one of my patients feel at ease while providing quality oral health care.”
