Administrator – Brittany, RN
My name is Brittany and I am the Practice Administrator at CCFD. I have been a nurse since 2005 and have also passed my dental assistant training and examinations. My experience with insurance and treatment financing means I can help our patients find ways to receive the dentistry they need and want. With my knowledge as a Registered Nurse, I am able to bring a more complete approach to our patients’ overall health because I understand how common systemic diseases and medications affect the body and mouth, and how they are commonly interconnected. I have noticed that many times the mouth is overlooked when it comes to being healthy. Now, I get the opportunity to educate our patients about how a healthy mouth is an important part of a healthy body!
Hygienist - Joelene, RDH
My name is Joelene and I'm a Registered Dental Hygienist. I graduated in 2016 from Concorde Career College in Kansas City, MO, with an Associate of Applied Science in Dental Hygiene. I became a hygienist out of a desire to help others. Everyday I get to make a positive impact on my patients by educating them about oral health and teaching them healthy habits and routines to help them have a healthy, happy smile. I care for may patients the way I would want myself or my family to be cared for. At CCFD I get to work in an environment that feels like family; where we care for our patients and each other with compassion and sincerity. I was Active Duty Air Force 2006-2012 as a munitions specialist with to deployments to Afghanistan. I am also a Certified Pastry Chef with the American Culinary Federation degree from Platt College in Tulsa. I enjoy spending time with my dogs, watching/playing sports, and horseback/trail riding.

Assistant - Nancy, CDA, EFDA
My name is Nancy and I am a Certified Dental Assistant with Expanded Functions. I graduated from the State Technical College Dental Assisting Program in May 2016. I chose dentistry for my career because I enjoy helping people. Your smile is your first impression for the world to see and it honestly feels my heart with joy to help make someone's smile beautiful. I am proud to be a part of CCFD because of Dr. Miller's great reputation and our team really pulls together to make a difference in our patients' lives. I always strive to do the very best I can to help every patient improve their oral health. Outside of the office, I like spending time with my husband and daughter and son, along with family and friends. We love playing with our two chocolate labs and riding four-wheelers on our farm.
Assistant - Brooke, CDA, EFDA
My name is Brooke and I am a Certified Dental Assistant with Expanded Functions . I graduated from the State Technical College of Missouri in 2019. I chose dentistry because I love helping people, after each appointment I get to see the excitement on their face once we help them out and that fulfills my heart. I chose to work at CCFD because Dr. Miller has a great reputation and his staff is incredibly wonderful. I hope to enhance people’s dental experience while providing them with a friendship built upon trust, honesty, and privacy. I enjoy spending time with my family and friends and also playing with my 5 German Shepherds.
Assistant - Cristina, EFDA
My name is Cristina. I am an Expanded Functions Dental Assistant. I have been working in the dental field since 2017 and I am proud to be a part of Columbia Center for Dentistry. The family environment in our office is amazing, not only with the staff, but also with our patients. It is nice to work in an office where everyone strives to do what is best for our patients and where we can establish the best quality care for them. It is very rewarding for me to see a patient’s excitement when treatment is complete. Besides dentistry, I enjoy spending time with my husband, fishing, traveling, and walking our 3 Great Danes.
Assistant - Kalyne
My name is Kalyne and I am a trained Dental Assistant. In 2019, I decided to go to Dental Assisting School because I wanted to be able to help people feel their best with their smile, and make sure that they were as comfortable as possible throughout that process. I believe that no one should ever feel like they must hold back a laugh or withdraw from conversations/social interactions, especially because of their teeth. I have two family members that are patients at CCFD who have previously had bad experiences that caused high dental anxiety. Ever since becoming patients here, they love coming to the dentist and would constantly brag about how comfortable they felt, and how important it was to Dr. Miller and the team to make sure every experience with them was a good one. When they told me that, I knew this was the team I wanted to be on. I want every patient to walk out feeling more comfortable and confident than they did when they walked in. Outside of work I like spending too much time at Target, crafting and walking/spending time outdoors with my husband, daughter, and extended family.
