Our Treatment Process | Dr. Jenny Miller | Hamburg Expressions | Lexington KY

Welcome to Hamburg Expressions | Dr. Jenny Miller DMD | Hamburg Expressions | Lexington, KY

_____________________________________________________________________________

Our office is located in Hamburg in Lexington, KY in the Hamburg area which is right off of the interstate and our office differs quite a bit from the standard dental office that you would walk into.   The most unique features about our practice is the fact that not only do we have an in-house lab but, my in-house lab technician is my husband and we’ve been married for 17 years now.  That really helps us in the lab to get immediate feedback on our cases. To be able to know what’s going well and unfortunately maybe what’s not going well over the years.

We know well how to communicate with one another and we use that to our advantage. He works with a lot of other fantastic cosmetic and re-constructive dentists and I benefit from that. Neil’s very progressive, he seeks out knowledge and wants to get better and better so he’s certified with LVI, the Las Vegas Institute, as a master Lab Technician.

We have twenty-two active clients in our laboratory right now and most of them are located out of state. We have lab clients in Knoxville; Indianapolis; Cincinnati; Raleigh, NC as well as others and doing those complex re-constructive and cosmetic cases for those other doctors also gives my wife, Dr. Miller,  an added perspective of the industry as well.

I’m able to communicate with my lab-technician because he’s right here so if something’s challenging, I can take it to him and I can say “what do you think we can do here?” The real benefit is the fact that it’s cost effective. It saves patients money in order to come in. There is fewer appointment time, we’re able to charge patients less for our restorations because it doesn’t take us as long to do these kinds of things.

You know when I was younger, you tend to get a fear of a dentist, and even going to the dentist and everything. I was very self-conscious about my smile and I’d actually gotten to the point where I would practice my smile  because of the way my teeth were stained and everything.  I’d practice my smile in front of the mirror and had it down to an art where I could hide my stains with my lower lip.

Was I nervous about initially getting the work done? Initially yes, but Dr. Miller’s fixed everything and it’s just a complete transformation. You know, coming in here, Dr. Miller and everyone was very nice and she’s very gentle and everything. I’m actually a different person because of the work that Dr. Miller’s done.

The best way in most situations that we can figure out where the end will be, is to models and photographs  of the teeth and do wax-ups before we start and then present those to our patients.  I sit down with a treatment plan and they can see really  close up what’s going on in their mouth, and I’ll go through periodontics, which is gums and bone; we’ll go through bio-mechanics which is the structurally sound feature of every tooth. We’ll go through the functionality of the teeth and we’ll also look at the aesthetics, what’s causing your teeth not  to look good. So looking at these things educates the patient as to what do we need to do to fix the problem we have at hand.

Then we finally get to our treatment options, and I don’t base those options on how much it’s going to cost or any other reason other than what will be best and I always compare that to what would I ant for myself .

We are happy to introduce our new office manager, Francie!  We all look forward to seeing Francie every day because she is always smiling. As soon as you walk in our doors, at Hamburg Expressions, Francie is there to welcome you with that beautiful smile.  She is such a benefit to our practice and our patients because she has several years of experience as a dental office manager.  She is able to efficiently assist our patients with their dental insurance, maximizing their insurance benefits and sequencing dental treatment appointments in a manner that is convenient to the patient.  She has already revolutionized our practice by implementing a state of the art practice management software allowing us to be paperless!  Francie will make your dental appointment experience easy instead of a chore!

“My name is Francie, I have worked in the dental field for around 14 years now.   I am excited to be joining the Hamburg Expressions team.  I have found cosmetic dentistry to be my favorite aspect of dentistry.  I love seeing the change we can bring to a patient with a new smile.  I have recently moved to the Lexington area about 4 years ago with my family.  I have 5 children that keep me very busy.  Our oldest has made me a grandmother this past December in which I am really enjoying.  Two of my children are in college this fall, one in high school and one little one at home. ”

A new smiling face to greet you at Hamburg Expressions!

We are welcoming our newest team member…Angela!

It saddens my heart to have to say goodbye to my dear friend and my right hand, my dental assistant for around six years…the original Angelia. But we wish her the best as she starts a new and exciting life overseas with her husband.

We were fortunate to find our new Angela right next door to the office. She was instructing at the dental assisting school. Angela has already brought several creative ideas to the practice. She is very attentive and comforting to all of our patients. She is always smiling:)

“As a new addition to the Hamburg Expressions team, I feel privileged to work alongside Dr. Miller and her husband Neil.  I share their passion for cosmetic dentistry, and enjoy working closely with patients to achieve their smile goals!  Although I grew up in Connecticut, I’m proud to call Kentucky home. I’ve been here for twelve years and can’t imagine living anywhere else!  Outside of work, I stay busy with my two beautiful daughters, Jade and Brooke.”       -Angela
