Family Dentistry

Create Lasting Smiles with Family Dentistry

When raising a family, it can be hard finding a dentist to care for your loved ones because they all have specific needs and comfort levels. At Valley View Dental, we understand the struggle you face. Dr. Jennifer Miller strives to help patients of all ages achieve optimal oral health. As a practice that offers family dentistry in St. Peter, everyone in your home can enjoy one dental team for healthy smiles that last for a lifetime.

Why Choose a Family Dentist?

Everyone has different oral health needs, which constantly change over the years. Often, you need to visit different dental offices to ensure your family’s needs are met. Not with a family dentist. Family dentistry offers the exact services your loved ones need from one convenient location.

With everyone seeing one dentist, Dr. Miller will have a deeper insight into your family’s oral health needs. She can better detect and prevent genetic or environmental issues that may impact you or your children’s dental health, like a family history of gum disease. This allows her to quickly intervene to prevent complications from occurring.

To give your family the care they deserve, Dr. Miller makes it her mission to build long-lasting relationships. She takes the time to get to know her patients to deliver tailored solutions that cater to their individual needs while making them feel at ease during their appointments.

Preventive Dentistry

When it comes to putting everyone on the right path to a healthier smile, there’s no better way to do this than with preventive dentistry. Whether it is regular dental checkups and cleanings, gum disease or fluoride treatments, dental sealants, children’s dentistry, or athletic sportguards, our team can design a customized treatment plan that addresses your needs and offers longer-lasting results. 

Restorative Dentistry

Dealing with a decayed or damaged tooth? Maybe you have one or more teeth missing that need replacing? Dr. Miller can offer the solution that is right for you with one of our many restorative treatments. From full or partial dentures to dental crowns & bridges to root canal therapy, she can breathe new life into your weakened teeth and provide a complete, restored look and feel that will have you enjoying the benefits of a fully functional smile once again.

Oral Cancer Screenings

Early detection is key when it comes to successfully diagnosing and treating oral cancer. Taking the lives of thousands of individuals each year, Dr. Miller and her team are committed to lowering that number by performing oral cancer screenings during regular dental checkups and cleanings. This easy and painless process allows her to look for abnormalities inside the mouth and around the facial structure (i.e. neck, throat). Performed in a matter of minutes, this quick scan could save your life.

TMJ Therapy

If you are tired of dealing with chronic jaw pain or excessive wear and tear on your teeth, it may be that you are suffering from temporomandibular joint disorder (TMD). Teeth grinding (bruxism) is a common problem associated with TMJ/TMD as well as a misaligned bite. To remedy this issue and improve your quality of life, we can employ TMJ Therapy. Using a customized nightguard that is designed to fit comfortably within your mouth, you will not only notice a dramatic difference in the way your teeth and jaw feel, but you will also sleep better and wake well-rested.

Emergency Dentistry

Dental emergencies are never planned and when one occurs, you may begin to panic. Fortunately, our team will go above and beyond to get you in to see Dr. Miller as soon as possible. Whether it is a knocked-out tooth, chipped or broken tooth, soft tissue injury, or a lost crown or filling, we will walk you through the steps to take at home while you wait to get in for your appointment. No matter the method of treatment, we will get you back to resuming normal activity quickly and enjoying a repaired, beautiful smile.

Create Generations of Healthy Smiles

Dr. Miller strives to stop oral health issues from developing in the first place. This reduces the need for a costly or invasive treatment in the future to decrease your long-term dental costs. With Dr. Miller on your family’s side, you will make a true investment in your loved ones’ smiles.
