Meet Your Forest Hills Dentist Robert Miller, DMD
Diplomate of the National Dental Board of Anesthesiology Dr. Miller's father was a dentist, and he witnessed his father's passion towards the profession as a child, but Dr. Miller thought he would go into psychology instead of following his father's footsteps. He soon changed his mind, entered the field of dentistry, and decided focus on dental phobic patients---those who have a fear of a dentist. His goal is to help them receive optimum dental health, and he has found one of the best methods is the use of intravenous sedation.
Dr. Miller graduated from the University of Pennsylvania School of Dental Medicine in 1980. He did post-graduate training at Mt. Sinai Medical Center in dental anesthesia and at the Bronx Lebanon Hospital of Albert Einstein in general dentistry. He received board certification as a Diplomate of the National Dental Board of Anesthesiology in April 2002.
