Patty MileyHello, my name is Patty and I am the friendly face that greets you as you walk into our office. I have enjoyed working with Dr. Gilsdorf for the past 10 years. I work with all of our patients and families through all of the steps of the treatment planning, procedures, insurance and the financial needs that they may have.

I love getting to know all of our patients and helping them achieve the lifelong goal of a beautiful smile. I truly cherish the working relationships and friendships that I have established with our wonderful patients and their families.

When I am not at work, I spend my time with my husband, our two dogs, four children, four grandchildren, family, and friends. We walk the dogs, ride bikes, and exercise with a round of golf as often as possible.
