WE CARE ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT AND YOUR HEALTH
Michelangelo used the best tools available to carve his ‘David’. Likewise, Dr. Miller and Dr. Goodman have invested in modern dental chairs, lighting, and other specialized tools and systems:
Many people have metal and/or latex sensitivities.
Our office has always been and remains latex and amalgam-free.
Our air filtration system combines six stages of air sterilization and purification. There are four capture stages for particulate matter and two stages that eliminate volatile organic compounds, bacteria and viruses, leaving you with pure, clean air.
Our digital radiograph (X-ray) machine reduces your exposure to 1/10th of a regular radiograph. In addition, there are no chemicals needed to develop radiograph film, since the process is now digital.
AFFORDABLE DENTAL SERVICES
We believe that everyone deserves a great smile. We have found a way to help make dental services more affordable. Health Smart Financial enables you to finance your medical procedures with an affordable plan for repayment. Ask about Health Smart at reception—we will be happy to explain how it works.

ENJOY STRESS-FREE DENTAL VISITS
At Miller Goodman Dentistry we are pleased to announce a complimentary service to make your dental treatment less stressful. It’s called NeuroPad by GSSLAB™.
NeuroPad stimulates your muscles, nervous system and mind thanks to GSSLAB’s patented technology. The system uses a combination of ultra-long sound waves and ambient music to relax and energize at the same time. Ask us about using NeuroPad on your next dental appointment—it’s on us!
Healthy teeth and gums begin with excellent care. For young children, excellent care begins with a welcoming atmosphere. Happy visits to the dentist are a combination of good timing, top-notch care…and exciting distractions.
At Miller Goodman Dentistry clinic, we provide all three, including a dedicated children’s play area adjacent to reception. This cozy little nook is furnished with toys, books, a fish aquarium, movies for tots, age-appropriate Xbox games and our wall mounted iPads with dozens of touch screen games. We even have ceiling-mounted TVs with children’s programming above our dental chairs! We make every effort to arrange appointments for the entire family at the same time of day, so please let us know if morning or afternoon is best when scheduling your appointments.
Healthy teeth and gums don’t impact just oral health—they have a positive effect on one’s overall health. When oral hygiene is poor, your body’s natural defenses are weakened. That’s why it’s so important to promote good oral hygiene from a young age! Among the children’s services we offer is sedation for major dental work (both Dr. Miller and Dr. Goodman have operating privileges at the Collingwood General & Marine Hospital), low-dose digital X-rays, and laughing gas to reduce anxiety.
Beautiful, straight, white teeth, can make such a difference to your appearance. The trick lies in finding a dentist who can help you maintain that natural look for the long term.
Most dentists create veneers, inlays & onlays, crowns and implants for their patients, but it takes great expertise to produce a natural-looking result. Crafting dental work that looks just like the real thing is a combination of the latest training, great equipment…and skill.
Keep in mind that sound oral health is the foundation upon which cosmetic improvements are built. Healthy tissues are a must for achieving the best possible results.
Since healthy teeth and gums have a positive effect on your overall health, Dr. Miller and Dr. Goodman will ensure that oral hygiene is top-notch before embarking on any cosmetic improvements.

“If you've ever been scared to go to the dentist. (Cold sweats, clammy hands.) No worries doctor Goodman is great, took my fears away. I think I might have even dosed off for awhile when he was filling a tooth. Great place to go.”
“I came to see Dr Miller about my TMJ disorder. He listened to my problem and made some adjustments in my bite. Such a simple procedure and my jaw problem got significantly better. I cancelled my appointment at Barrie dental clinic and decided to stay with Dr. Miller.
He gained my trust and a new patient.”
“Friendly atmosphere and great care for our family of 4.”
