Meet The Doctors

Dr. Ty D. Milner

Dr. Ty D. Milner is growing the family practice and more importantly wishes to continue to provide high quality oral health care to new and existing 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.”

Dr. Ty began his educational journey at Benedictine University at Springfield, formerly known as Springfield College in Illinois where he was a part of the College’s baseball team, the Springfield Bulldogs, and earned his associates degree in 2006. From there, he went on to major in Integrative Biology at the University of Illinois while also being a part of the Fighting Illini baseball team, graduating in 2008.  Immediately after graduation, Dr. Ty enrolled at the Southern Illinois University - School of Dental Medicine, his father’s Alma-mater, where he received his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree in 2012.  In the summer of 2011, Dr. Ty took part in the Jamaica Humanitarian Dental Mission trip that was organized by the faculty, staff and students of SIU-School of Dental Medicine.

In his free time, Dr. Ty enjoys golfing, catching ball games, being active in his community and spending time with family and friends.  In July 2012, Dr. Ty married Kasey Milner (Seaman) of Mattoon, IL. He and his wife have four children, Karsyn, Griffin, Keagan, and Koby.



Dr. Kylea Tibbs-Hnizdo

Dr. Kylea grew up in nearby Petersburg, attending PORTA schools.  She was chosen for the capital scholars program at the University of Illinois at Springfield.  While earning her undergraduate degree, she had the opportunity to partner with SIU School of Medicine becoming a research team member at both a cancer research lab and a neonatal intensive care unit laboratory.  After graduation from UIS, Dr Kylea attended Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine.  Dr. Kylea graduated, cum laude, from SIU School of Dental Medicine in 2011. She and her husband, Nathan, moved back to the Springfield area shortly after graduation.  Dr. Kylea is returning to private practice full time after spending five years focused on public health. 

Dr. Kylea was motivated to pursue a career in dentistry by a strong desire to help people.  “I love to get up every morning and know I will spend my day creating relationships with my patients.  The patient is the most important person in our dental practice.  I feel it is important for the patient to understand their oral health and be involved in making treatment decisions.  I welcome all questions!”

Dr. Kylea is as dedicated to her profession as she is to her dental patients.  She is a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), Illinois State Dental Society (ISDS), Chicago Dental Society (CDS), and is the current President for the GV Black District Dental Society.  

When she is not at the office, you can usually find Dr. Kylea outdoors.  She loves to go camping with her husband and three sons (Isaac, Luke, and Sam).  Dr. Kylea enjoys spending time with family and friends while supporting the the Central Illinois communities, particularly Petersburg and Springfield!
