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 .

Why we use Aroma Therapy at Hamburg Expressions | Dr. Jenny Miller | Hamburg Expressions | Lexington KY

 

Aroma therapy, is just beaded pads that we warm in the microwave , that give off a lavender scent; so that when you lay them on, they feel nice and heavy and warm on your muscles and you get the scent of the lavender through out. This is so that you don’t have so much of that dental clinical smell when you’re having procedures done.

Sometimes our female patients don’t like using our eye cover pads because it can make their mascara run, but we do offer the eye cover option if they would like. It’s the same as the other pads with the beads in the cover, but you can just put it over your eyes so if you don’t want to see what’s going on, you don’t have to.  So it’s just those little additions to make going to the dentist just a little more comforting.

CrossFit Maximus | Kathy Childress | Customized Workouts | Hamburg Expressions

The beauty of CrossFit even though it might seem a little intimidating is the fact that it can be tailored to fit everybody’s needs. If you do have knee issues and back issues, the workouts can be scaled to fit your personal needs. We write out the workouts for you, which we call prescriptions, in order to perscribe modifications and alternatives to exercises that might not fit for someone that might have a back injury, a bad back or other types of injuries. If we do something that day which for example requires a lot of back work, then we are able to give each individual something else to do that can fit into their activities.

We’ve had people loosing anywhere from 5 pounds to 65 pounds from the time that we’ve been open. We have several clients that have had great success. On top of that, not just the weight loss, we have so many people that start out on medications such as high blood pressure medications and because of the interval training with high intensity, the scientific facts kick in and people are coming off their medications, they feel better, their daily activities are getting easier and getting stronger. Everything is functional so, for women getting groceries out of the car, picking up your kids on a daily basis; we mimic those important daily activities in the gym.
