Wonderful Dentist & Crew – the team (Dr. Miller, Angie, Patti, Kristen and Heidi) is attentive and very customer focused. My family, patients since 2012 has had cleanings, repairs to Invisalign done here. Make sure to ask Heidi for any specials and recommendations on Thai food. Again great dental office and the best service.

I’ve been going here for over 5 years now and wouldn’t change! Even after moving from Del Mar to San Marcos. Dr. Miller does a great job, is a kind and a funny guy. I’ve all his staff too. They always remember me and go out of their way to make me feel welcome. Definitely recommend.

Dr Miller and all of his staff far exceeded my expectations. First off, I’m not an easy patient as I have a very low pain tolerance. Dr Miller and his staff are very conscious about your level of comfort and go above and beyond to ensure you are not in pain. Secondly, the crowns that he does are perfection, they look and feel exactly like my real teeth! I’ve had a number of crowns throughout the years and they’ve never felt,looked,fit quite like my real teeth. Not anymore! I’m a Dr Miller convert!

I was referred, by a friend, to Dr Miller for an emergency root canal.  Both the Doctor, and his staff, are extremely professional as well as kind. Thank you Dr. Miller for accommodating me in my time of need.  It is very much appreciated.

My husband and I have been going to Dr. Miller’s office for almost a decade and we love it! Everyone from the staff to the techs, hygienists and of course, Dr. Miller are phenomenal. He has had many of the staff members working there for many years and I always look for that in a dr’s office as a sign of a good doctor- among other things. They are on-time, handle billing and insurance claims well, friendly and accommodating and always the latest technology to make your visit comfortable. Dr. Miller is truly skilled at what he does and his care and attention are unparalleled. I highly recommend Dr. Miller for anyone who is looking for quality dentistry.

Trinh N. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Not sure how Dr. Miller and his office has anything less than 5 stars. I would rate them 10 stars if I could. Going to the dentist is always terrifying but everyone here is so friendly and professional. Dr. Miller is truly amazing and has completely put my mind at ease when going in for a visit. I recommend them without any reservations!

Zhala T. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


After several years of bad dentists I think I finally found the perfect office! I loved Dr. Miller’s friendly and knowledgeable staff. The hygienist explained things to me very well, they made me feel comfortable, and it was overall a very good experience. I feel like they care about their patients and provide them with the best care. I look forward to my next appt (shocking right?) 🙂

Very friendly staff. Dr Miller is friendly, comfortable, concerned and skilled. They have accommodating schedules. Convenient and pleasant office that always feels calm and punctual. I ended up needing invisalign for my dental issue, but have been very satisfied as I have needed much more dental follow up than I am used to.

I chose to go with Dr. Miller for my Invisalign treatment because he was highly recommended and I am glad I did. He explained the process in detail and made sure I was well informed and comfortable with my treatment. His staff is welcoming and professional and the office is very clean and calming. But most importantly, he made the procedure go smoothly and pain free.

Chelsea C. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Miller is a great dentist. He is a very nice man and cares about his patients. I had a cleaning and two cavities filled at his practice. The oral hygienist was very professional and did a good job. When Dr. Miller reviewed my x-rays he had some suggestions -which I have heard from other dentists in the past- but he was not pushy -like all the dentists I have had in the past. He offered to assist me to find an orthodontist within my insurance provider which was very nice. When I had my cavities filled, I was able to watch netflix on their tv. I liked that /I/ got to choose what to watch. The procedure was quick and painless. Dr. Miller would talk through the steps, so I would not be surprised if I felt a slight pinch. One thing I liked the best is that he did not try to have a conversation while my mouth was pryed open and numb. Why do some dentists do that? It’s not like you can respond! The only thing he would ask is if I was feeling okay; which I would nod. Great dentist. Mellow, professional staff, and gentle handling when doing my fillings is why I like this dentist. I will definitely come back to see him in the future.

Samin V. from San Marcos, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been in San Diego for about 8 years now and it took me three tries to find a dentist I was comfortable with.  I went to Dr. Miller’s office in PB before I moved and started going to his office in Del Mar.  95% of my experiences have been great.  First the good:  I have a weird work schedule and they are always very flexible and work around my availability.  I have insurance and they always give me accurate estimates and discuss with me how much my insurance covers and how much I would owe.  So far they have been right on and cheaper than I remember at other dentists.  The receptionists and hygienists are very friendly and knowledgeable.  I also like that Dr. Miller’s office has state of the art technology.  I would definitely recommend Dr. Miller to any of my friends!  A  very friendly guy! The bad:  I had 3 crowns done with Dr. Miller.  The entire experience was better than expected and everyone at the office did a great job.  My only complaint is that my temporary fell off a few times.  This could be more common than I think, but it was annoying. Luckily all I had to do was call Dr. Miller and he came in on the weekend to put it back in.   They also used to have an annoying hygienist but she no longer works there.

I am a new patient in this office and I was very impressed. From the initial phone call, the girl I spoke with was so friendly and helpful. I have had some bad dental experiences so at this point in life, I am a little leery. When I got to the office for my appointment, I was immediately greeted by the same girl I spoke with on the phone and she remembered me and made me feel a little more at ease. The office was very modern and clean (VERY IMPORTANT TO ME). I have never had a dental visit that was as easy to get through. Dr. Miller was very nice and explained what I needed and why, even showing me pictures of my teeth. All the staff that I met was equally as friendly. I am glad that I have finally found a dentist that I can feel comfortable with. (The laughing gas made it that much more tolerable):) If you are looking for a dentist in Del Mar, I would definitely recommend Dr. Millers office.

Dean B. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


The dentistry offered by the office of Michael J. Miller, D.M.D. is superior.  Dr. Miller is professional, thorough, attentive of patient concerns, and in every way diligent.  The entire staff, from receptionist to dental technician, is of the highest caliber.  Further, the office is maintained in Bristol condition.  To conclude, my teeth aren’t going anyplace but the office of Michael J. Miller, D.M.D., P.C.

Blake B. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Miller’s for about 10 years, both in his Pacific Beach and Del Mar offices.  Some of the negative comments on this Yelp page are, IMHO, downright unfair to him and his practice.  First off, his work is immaculate.  He’s a perfectionist, and always finds a way to make things right, often giving repeated free services and follow-ups if something needs additional work.  Second, he is very personable and great with his patients.  He and his staff rescued me from another dentist that didn’t know what he was doing (old age, memory issues), and since then he’s taken care of my whole family without a hitch. He definitely does not recommend work that is unnecessary.  To the contrary, he is very respectful of original tooth care and preservation and creatively works with his patients to resolve problems without going straight to more extreme dental care solutions (e.g. root canals, extractions, etc.)  His medical expertise and sense of “when to wait” on testy nerves vs. when to take dental action have been, in my opinion, excellent. Take it from someone who has known him for over a decade as a professional instead of some of these one-time posters and patients who clearly don’t know the guy and either have an axe to grind, or some other agenda they wanted to vet on Yelp.  Truly a first-class dentist, and I’ve known some incredible ones from back East. Your best bet in San Diego and Del Mar.  And yes, he’s a big Kentucky Wildcat fan (basketball more than football).  But I’m a Dukie, so you KNOW I’m calling it as it is with him!

JohnPaul C. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Miller for 2 years now and I can say the experience is outstanding.  I have never liked going to the dentist, but I can honestly say I look forward to my yearly checkups.   He treats you as a person not just a patient.  He talks to you and explains everything in detail.  I had a tooth pulled and he called me the next day to see how I was doing.  How many dentist do that? The staff is wonderful, they greet you, offer you a healthy snack and bottled water.  When it comes to scheduling your appointments they are very accommodating. Anyone I hear talking about going to a dentist I always refer them to Dr. Miller.

The only reason there was a wait time is because Dr. Miller had an emergency appointment just before me. Otherwise there would have been no wait and I would have selected “Right Away!”. I have already recommended 2 people to Dr. Miller and would recommend anyone who needed a dentist.

Jennifer I. (Source: Zocdoc)


I have seen several dentists in San Diego and have had great experiences. However, Dr. Miller has been great in each visit I have been to and I feel welcome. Today had some cavities filled and a tooth extracted. He made it quick and painless. I would highly he and his staff to anyone who doesn’t always enjoy the dentist.

Cheryl W. (Source: Zocdoc)


I enjoy Michael’s expertise, professionalism, and no-nonsense approach. My sister Leslie Conner recommended him to me, and I am glad to be one of his patients! Debra was with me throughout my long procedure today, and she was fabulous.

BEST Dentist Ever! The entire staff is friendly, knowledgeable and kind. Dr. Miller doesn’t push any products nor does he force any procedures onto you.  I had the need for 3 fillings and he filled all of them 1. Without any pain 2. Within my lunch hour 3. Made sure I was comfortable (watching Netflix).  I have recommend him to family members and friends.  I highly suggest him as I have never had this great of an experience with a Dentist before.

Perry S. from Solana Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient here for over a year now and I only wish I had reviewed them earlier. From the first introductions as you walk in the door to the last goodbye as you walk out the door satisfied, they go to great lengths to make you feel comfortable. The conversations with each and every staff member feels like a friend. And I cannot say enough about Dr. Millers attributes. Extremely friendly to me and to the people I have referred. I have needed more dental work than I would like to admit recently, but his numbing techniques are incredible. I have never feared going to the dentist less. And considering I either get to watch Netflix or sing 80s hits with the dental assistant, it’s just like having a play from work this afternoon. And now my wife tells me I get a milkshake when I get home, Alright!!!

Brian J. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Miller had been my Dentist for over years.  Just thought I’d take a moment to show some love for him and his staff.  Top notch.  Nothing but positive things to say about my dental team 🙂

Steve K. (Source: Zocdoc)


While I don’t think I’ll ever be happy about getting fillings, Dr. Miller and his staff make the experience as pleasant as I can imagine it being. I’ve been happy with the quality of care since my first visit 9 years ago. Highly recommended!

Michelle Comstock (Source: Google)


Been going here for 2 years, keep coming back because of the care and concern for my comfort at every visit being one of their top priorities. Always professional, warm and inviting, Dr. Mller and staff are top notch.

Michael K. (Source: Zocdoc)


Best dentist i have ever visited. Very professional and meticulous in the trade. Makes complicated procedures painless and comfortable and the basic stuff go by fast. I highly recommend to anyone looking for what a dentist experience should be like.

Valerie B. from Del Mar, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Miller is a great dentist. He is very honest, professional, and meticulous with his work. I’ve been to dentists in the past who have told me I needed several fillings when in fact I didn’t. Dr. Miller is conservative with his recommendations and recommends only what is necessary for treatment. His hygienist is super friendly and gentle with cleanings. The front office staff is great. The office is very clean. I would recommend Dr Miller’s office to friends and family in a heartbeat. Another plus: his office has convenient parking and is easily accessible off the freeway in Del Mar. All around a great dental practice in North County San Diego!!

Sarah L. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been seeing Dr. Miller for about 3yrs and it’s been wonderful! The staff is incredibly friendly and Dr. Miller is very professional and personable. My cleanings are always done in a timely manner and with comfort. I went in a few weeks ago for my first cavity filling and I was clearly nervous. The assistant and Dr. Miller were very calming and let me set the pace. I never felt an ounce of pain! They did a wonderful job and the facility is perfect. Everything is up to date, clean and catered to the client. I highly recommend Dr. Miller!!

Crysta M. from Spring Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


Saw Dr. Miller for the first time last week- had a broken crown that needed attention asap, and it was Dr. Miller to the rescue! I wasn’t sure where to go or who to see as I left my last dental office unhappy with their services. I was nervous and dubious that I would receive any kind of thorough care as my insurance plan is not the best, but my experience with Dr. Miller was exactly the opposite! He gave me genuine care and was extremely thorough- and did the temporary crown and one filling in just an hour! Woohoo! Great dentist- I highly recommend!!!

Gino T. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been with Doc Miller for about 6 years.  I love his office, staff and his knowledge.  They explain things very simple and make me feel comfortable.  So far only a few filling but great work.  Definitely recommend, and I now live in Carlsbad but welcome the drive down to their Del Mar office.

David Moore (Source: Google)


Dr. Miller and his entire staff are always incredibly welcoming, and provide excellent dental care. My last visit Dr. Miller worked for almost two hours on seven different teeth, making sure each one looked perfect at the end. I would recommend him to anyone looking for friendly service and quality care in the Del Mar/Solana Beach area.

Shella Galang (Source: Google)


I have never enjoyed visits to the dentist until I started coming to Dr. Miller’s office. The staff are always friendly, and know all their patients and treat you as a friend. They’ll also answer any questions or concerns you have should you have any. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

La Fortuna S. from Santa Fe, NM (Source: Yelp)


I have waited to write a review until my work was completely finished. I had extensive work done including 5 crowns and a filling by 2 different dentists over the past 5 months in 2 states. Dr. Millers office is state of the art. He is meticulous about cleanliness and worked with me until my bite was correct. He accepted a negotiated rate with New Dental Choice which was a huge help without insurance and he encouraged communication and return visits until the work was complete.  His front desk staff – Tasha and Heidi were a great extension of his professional attitude encouraging care and communication.  I LOVE the dentist…but have struggled to find good ones who don’t retire every 5 minutes.  Both of the recent experiences were good – but Dr. Miller was able to wrap up the whole process and make sure all of the extensive work came together properly.  Other dentists in the area that I found struggled with less experience, some medicare fraud issues, over diagnosing, over charging, antiquated offices/procedures and even dismissive staff.  I did my research prior to choosing Dr. Miller and am very happy I found him in the sea of dentists here.  Happy. 🙂

B. C. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was blessed with Dr. Michael J Miller’s outstanding services by chance, literally. After my last – terrible to put it mildly – experience with a dentist in my community of Hillcrest, it took me a good while to solicit new dental services. Location being a priority, I looked up places in Hillcrest again and made some phone calls. Affinity Dental, then known as Hillcrest Family Dental I believe, accommodated my needs (schedule, attractive quote for initial exam) and my best dentist experience to date began. After some initial frustrations, i.e. different dentists, assistants, billing persons and confusing information and quoting, I was permanently matched with Dr Michael J Miller, as it turns out a brilliant and well respected cosmetic dentist of San Diego. It just so happens Dr. Miller does a per diem at this low cost clinic – two actually most weeks, on Tuesdays and on Wednesdays. His full service, state-of-the-art practice is located in Del Mar, at 277 Via De La Valle, suite 101. From my experience and public information, Dr Miller is highly knowledgeable and on top of the latest developments and technology in dentistry – he attends double the yearly requirement of Continued Education courses for the state of California. Dr Miller and his assistant Leonel at Affinity Family Dental have excellent bed side manners (chair side manners?), and you receive the same care as you’d expect in a high end practice. Consistency in superior care is what makes the client/patient want to come back. My experience has been remarkable each time I had an appointment with Dr Miller for treatment or follow up. If you have the financial set up and if the location is attractive to you to see Dr Miller in his Del Mar practice, I recommend you make it your permanent dental destination. My treatment plan has involved corrective updates on old work, laser reduction of bulky gums, and cosmetic smile improvement. Dr. Miller is incredibly skilled in his craft and has surprised me with solutions I had never even heard of. He has a seemingly inexhaustible repertoire of individualized treatment options. Unlike other dentists I have seen over the years, he is clearly set to achieve exactly what is best for me. Dr Miller is a perfectionist, a quality I highly treasure in a trade that involves my health, anesthesia, and my appearance. When your dentist is clearly dedicated to his job and takes pride in his craft, you are in good hands. Plus, Dr Miller has a good sense of humor, which is something I truly appreciate because just being in the dentist chair alone is unnerving. Thumbs up!

Dr. Miller is excellent and gentle! He really cares about his patients and it shows. He takes pride in his work and always makes sure his patients are comfortable for any procedures. I always leave there feeling really calm about upcoming procedures or visits. He does really good work and I would highly recommend him! His staff is also very kind. Everyone makes sure that all your questions are answered and everything is explained very well. Thank you Dr. Miller!

Love the whole office! From the front desk to the Dr. I have been coming here for 7 years. I went from crying and needing to basically be sedated for treatment, to coming in with headphones and relaxing. Dr Miller respected me raising my hand mid treatment for more numbing and built that trust. Ive gotten fillings, crowns and invisalign here. They accept carecredit which helps. Brought my mom in for crowns as well. Heidi is the best, she helps with financing and pretty much everything!

Katie S. from Frederick, MD (Source: Yelp)


Dr Miller and his staff are by far the best dental practice in our area.  The office is right off the 5, really easy to get to.  They have all the latest equipmen-, TV’s w/ headphones while they clean, they show you your teeth on the screen so you can see what they are talking about, they make a detal tx plan, always explain the charges and what your portion will be.  Dr Miller is great too, personable and does great work!


After graduating in 1995 from the University Of Kentucky College Of Dentistry, which is consistently ranked as one of the top dental schools for progressive clinical education, Dr. Miller completed his General Practice Residency at the prestigious Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Beverly Hills, California, focusing on advanced dental concepts and dental esthetics. Dr. Miller believes that the key to providing excellence in cosmetic dentistry is continuing education. To remain on the leading edge of dentistry, he attends double the yearly requirement of Continued Education courses for the state of California. He is a member of the American Dental Association, the California Dental Society, the San Diego County Dental Society, the Dental Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS), is certified in laser dentistry by the Academy of Laser Dentistry, and is a member of the Pacific Academy for Esthetic Dentistry, the Rancho Santa Fe Rotary Club and the Summit Dental Study Group.
