Let me just say I have had a lot of dental work done over the years. I HAVE NEVER been more pleased than I am with J. R. Millington Dentistry. The atmosphere is great the staff is beyond great and the good Doc. Knows what he is doing! I just left the office with a new crown on a tooth that has given me fits for years! Perfect fit. Perfect match. Perfect experience! Wait can I rate higher than 5 stars??!!!

Today was my first visit, and I was really impressed with the whole operation. The staff took time with me, was very friendly, and informative. As a new patient, they made the change seamless, and I’m thankful I made the change. Additionally, the facility was super clean and inviting. I will definitely recommend this practice to all my family and friends!

When I called Dr. Millington’s office today, I let them know that my daughter was really in PAIN. Betsy scheduled her an appointment for today…and then called back to let us know that she was able to work her in earlier. My daughter is 18, so she went to the appointment herself. Afterwards, she called to let me know the pain was being managed and the office had already scheduled an appointment for the next morning, hoping to resolve the issue quickly. I was definitely glad that I had called Dr. Millington’s office. Now…I have to say that what prompted me to write this review was the level of care and service that Betsy provided!!! Receiving that after hours call from Betsy, making sure that I knew how the appointment went and to see if I had any questions, was a major indication of Top Notch Service!! If she wasn’t Dr. Millington’s mother, I would ask her to come and help me at my office! (Haha)

So thankful for this experience!  Not what you expect to hear about a dental visit, but I was treated with care and compassion and would recommend this practice to anyone searching for a dental provider.   I needed emergency care and they fit me in. The front office staff, assistant Taylor and Dr Millington made me feel like a priority not a number! The office is beautiful and state of the art, the staff are friendly and helpful, the care is thoughtful and thorough.  I highly recommend!

Dr. Millington, and his staff, are kind, courteous, helpful, prompt, and accommodating. Today was our first visit, because my husband needed immediate emergency care and they quickly got him in and taken care of. I was very impressed with every one of his staff, from the initial phone call all the way through our visit. And his office is very inviting, clean and friendly. Someone walked him/us through every step, from filling out the paperwork online to finance to making his referral appointment for us. Excellent patient care. It will not be our last visit to Dr Millington! I highly recommend them to anyone.

This was my first visit to J. R. Millington Dentistry. It was a great experience. My teeth haven’t felt this clean in a long time. Dr. Millington was gracious and kind. All the office staff were very nice, they were happy and accommodating. It was an all around good dental visit. I would highly recommend them.

Laurie M. from Birmingham, AL (Source: Yelp)


Dentists are a dime a dozen…but a really great one is worth his weight in gold! Enter, Dr. Millington. I began seeing Dr. Millington when he was fresh out of dental school and a junior partner to my regular dentist. I was immediately impressed with his kindness and humilty. Over time I became equally awed with his expertise, not only as a dentist but as a superb diagnostician. So much so- that when he left my dentist office, which is a scant 3 miles from my house, and opened his own practice 40 minutes away- I followed him! While this may not matter to some- quality of character is a determining factor, when I choose a health care professional to care for me and my family. Dr. Millington is unsurpassed in that category. He is not only a true family man, but also a man of great faith. This is evident is every aspect of his care for his patients, and even in his selection of office personnel. The entire staff treats you like family, and makes it clear that your both your comfort and health are their top priorities. Go see Dr. Millington, I’m completely confident he’ll become your new dentist!

Very hospitable and great team who love Jesus and love people! You do not feel like a number when you walk in the doors, you feel valued and taken care of. I have had three or four visits and have yet to sit in the waiting room for more than five minutes before I get called back. Do yourself a favor and give them a shot!

Taylor was the assistant, who was so well trained, so kind and thoughtful. Just my second visit. Was so anxious about getting an implant on one of my front teeth. Dr. Millington did the crown looks great. They wanted to send back for a Minor color adjustment and touch off length. These were their suggestions, because he said I think we can get it perfect. Great location. Beautiful office. Betsy always great first impression, the scheduling coordinator wonderful. Great staff. I happened to be there while his family was there. Beautiful family, so well mannered.

Very thankful for this office. My daughter injured her mouth and needed to see some ASAP on Friday. Her pediatric dentist office was closed and Dr. Millington not only agreed to see her but worked her in quickly on a very busy Friday. Staff was very friendly and kind to our daughter. Very grateful for this office and their entire staff! Would highly recommend.

Great experience. First called to make my appointment and all that was available was a month out. I asked them to call me if they had any cancellations so I could get in sooner. The very next day after I made my appointment they call me and got me in the following day. Very friendly office, staff, hygienist, and dentist.

The staff were friendly, professional, and courteous. Dr Millington gave a thorough, yet quick, examination of my jaw issues. He took the time to listen, question, and then explain his opinion to me. Great experience. My wife and I will see Dr. Millington for all our dental needs in the future.

My son (age 6) a terrible experience at his previous pediatric dentist. I decided we must find another dentist for him. Dr. Millington more than exceeded our expectations! My son actually enjoyed being there. All of the staff are exceptional and we are thrilled to be their patients! Now just to get my husband to follow suite…

I have not been to the dentist in years because of a bad experience. Recently I have been having some tooth sensitivity, so I finally decided to go. This dentist was highly recommended and I am so glad I went. Betsy was so sweet and welcoming when I first came in. The dental hygienist was very gentle and kind. Dr. Millington was very professional and knew exactly what needed to be done to help with the sensitivity. It was most definitely the best dental experience I’ve ever had.

Dr. Millington and his staff are very professional and courteous. His chair side manner is wonderful. He takes time to know you and make sure you understand the procedure. The after care is by far the best I have encountered in the Birmingham area. I would definitely recommend Dr. Millington and his staff to anyone searching for a dentist in the Birmingham/Trussville area.

As a child I was always scared of the dentist because it was never a good experience. I wanted my children to trust their dentist and at least not mind going. All three of my children LOVE going to JR Millington. He is so sweet to the children and talk to them on their level. All of the staff are more than accommodating and friendly. I took my youngest for the first time yesterday and he has already asked twice when he gets to go back!!! That makes my mom heart happy!!!

Thomas H. from Birmingham, AL (Source: Yelp)


This was by far the best experience I’ve ever had a a dentist office. Over the weekend I had my bridge to come loose the dentist I had been using said they couldn’t see for another week. When I called Dr. Millington’s office they said they would work me in as they knew how important my situation was. From the phone call till I left the office the staff were awesome. Thanks again for helping me. Hal Hames

The staff at J.R. Millington makes the uncomfortable experience of going to the dentist, much more pleasant. I am always pleased with the personal service that I receive whether I’m there for a cleaning or something more urgent. I would highly recommend J.R. to anyone looking for dental services.

First of all the atmosphere when you walk in it gives you peace the second thing everything’s excellent everything is handled in a professional manner everything is clean everybody is polite they go to extra mile to make sure you’re comfortable they discuss your case with you thoroughly come up with a good game plan highly recommend Jr Millington Dentistry

This dental office is convenient to where I live and the dental hygienist took time with my cleaning, went over basics etc. Dr. Millington took time with me as a patient and not just a quick walk in (which I expected) look in my mouth quickly and make notes. He talked, checked my mouth explained what he saw-gave recommendations, etc. He went back to when in practicing medicine-you actually treat your patient as an individual and not just reaching numbers as fast as you can in how many you can see. Everything in this office is updated as in technology and everyone staying ahead of their skill. Bringing my entire family to this practice. Felt like family!

Jessica M. from Birmingham, AL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Millington and his staff are the best! I love that they are less than 5 miles from my house, but for service like this I would drive a long ways! His staff is always friendly and JR is the most knowledgeable dentist I have ever seen. He takes his time with each patient and keeps your calm and informed. I love that I can watch tv while I’m being worked on because it helps relieve the anxiety. My husband has horrible dental anxiety and he loves going here because they really work to keep him calm. My teeth have never felt cleaner, either. I will definitely keep him forever!

Dr. Millington, I give you five stars and it’s a much easy give. Already knowing his Mom, Betsy, made switching dentist’s easy. He had to be great since she’s such a great person, I thought to myself. So in 2012 I went for a check up and since then I’ve not only acquired a better smile, I’ve also acquired a craving for Betsy’s tasty treats. If you want to feel special Millington Dentistry is the place. Said it when his practice first opened and will say it now, when you walk through their office door you take a step into the warm feeling of an episode of Andy Griffith

This is the absolute BEST office I have been to. I had a fear of the dentist as a child, though I saw the dentist twice a year. On my first visit, Dr. Millington listened to all of my fears. He and his hygienists and staff members have gone out of their way to make sure my dental experiences aren’t like those of the past. I would recommend ONLY Dr. Millington.

My husband and I absolutely love JR Millington Dentistry! That says a lot because my husband had horrible dentist experiences as a kid, so isn’t a fan of dental work to begin with. They have the sweetest and kindest staff that make you feel so welcomed and valued. I also don’t know of another dentist that offers HOMEMADE treats and beverages to their patients! The hygienists are very gentle and pay close attention to body language for any signs of discomfort. Dr. Millington is also very professional and has a great bedside manner. Another plus, they just moved into a BRAND NEW building that feels like Joanna Gaines designed it. If you’re looking for a new dentist, you can’t go wrong with JR Millington!

They are very professional and qualified. They go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and at ease. They always stop during all procedures to check and see if you are doing okay. The doctor goes over everything with you before and after each visit. An extra bonus is cookies at the end of your visit made by his mother.

Love this place!! Courtney was Very thorough with cleaning my teeth! She also helped me better understand why its important to floss and how to actually hug your tooth with the floss then go down to you gums. They definitely give you the knowledge you need to know to accurate. J.R was awesome too. He made sure to tell me what my next treatment needed to be. Everyone is very friendly! Highly recommended not only because they are friendly, but more importantly they are thorough!

Dr. J.R. Millington and his team are all so awesome! I had a crown break over the weekend and left a message on Sunday night. Betsy contacted me back and made sure I was ok. She made me an emergency appointment for the next morning and Dr. Milington fixed me right up! He is so professional, gentle, and has a such a calming presence. The whole team is so warm and welcoming and really treated me like family. My husband and I have been coming here the last few years and we will never go anywhere else! Thank you Betsy and Dr. Millington!

JR is the coolest and kindest gentleman that Ive ever had work on my teeth and he does a fantastic job. My Dad and I did the stairs in his house for him when he remodeled it with the help of my brother and Bob who were and are still part of the team but he’s not the guy you want to go to it you’re iso opiates, etc. Because he will keep you 100% comfortable and he will never tell you to deal with pain & being a 20yr chronic pain patient I don’t enjoy people hurting me more than is necessary to get the job done but squirm one time in the chair and that lidocaine is already enrolled route and he’s very gentle and just does a heck of a job and he’s just an all around good man with a great family and his mom runs the front office and bakes the cookies that give you the cavities & makes sure to invite you to rot all of your teeth out pre op but if that’s the only thing bad you can come up with now that’s good stuff. I guess I could be one of these reviewers that complains because they cut up and make you feel at home. I dont know why some prefer the type that like to stay miserable at work all day and all have frowns on their faces when you have the option to use someone like J.R. Millington & his all star staff. Kudos to them! I show up and I have dentiphobia 🙂
