Dr. Bart Miller has an extensive educational background and experience in treating improper bites and crooked teeth and is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, all of whom are specially trained.
Born and raised in Rockwall, Dr. Bart Miller graduated from Rockwall High School in 1986. Like his father Dr. Frank Miller, Dr. Bart joined the U.S. Navy. He was commissioned as Surface Warefare Officer, accepted into the Naval Nuclear Propulsion program, and served on board the guided-missile cruiser, USS Truxtun, stationed in Washington state. Following his service, he started dental school at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, completing his residency at Baylor College of Dentistry.
“At one point I thought about being a veterinarian,” Dr. Bart said. “I was in ROTC, I had my pre-med stuff done, and I went into nuclear propulsion. But I wasn’t really sure what I wanted to do. I talked to a lot of people, and nobody ever really jumped up and down about what they did. I realized my dad LOVED what he did – and it looked more and more appealing to me.”
Dr. Bart has been practicing at Rockwall Crossing Orthodontics for the past 13 years. He credits his wife for encouraging him to pursue a career in orthodontics.
“Just do it,” she told me. “I love my wife. She’s the reason for all my success,” he smiled. Dr. Bart and Sandi have been married 22 years and have three children – Wyatt, Grant, and Josie.
Dr. Bart serves on the board of the JER Chilton YMCA, the RISD Education Foundation, and the Rotary Club. He was even recognized as the Rockwall YMCA’s 2012 Father of the Year, an honor he says comes from being raised by great parents.
So brace yourself. Dr. Bart and his friendly staff at Rockwall Crossing Orthodontics are committed to creating smiles that last a lifetime.
