Dr. Caris Miller's Bio:
Dr. Caris Miller is originally from Milwaukee, Wisconsin. She attended the University of Wisconsin-Madison for her undergraduate degree in Spanish and Global Cultures. Dr. Miller graduated with her dental degree from the Arizona School of Dentistry and Oral Health. She has had great roles models and inspiration to be a dentist. Her uncle is a dentist and she took early interest by shadowing and eventually assisting him throughout college on summer breaks. Her grandfather, a osteopathic physician, always emphasized the importance of whole person health and preventative medicine. She is honored to dedicate her career to her two biggest inspirations!
Dr. Miller is a member of several dentistry organizations including the Arizona Dental Association and American Association of Women Dentists. She completed a vigorous program in advanced dentistry education through NYU at St. Vincent de Paul in South Phoenix. While there, she was trained by some of the best dentists in the valley. Dentistry is a career of lifelong learning and it is Dr. Miller’s mission to continue to grow everyday to better serve her patients. Dr. Miller has always believed in the connection between oral and whole body health. Her mantra is, “Teeth are connected to a body, which is connected to family, that is connected to a community. When I invest in my patient’s well being, I invest in our community.”
Service has been a huge part of Dr. Miller’s life for as long as she can remember. It continues to be part of her daily life, career, and will continue in the future. She is involved with several organizations including Mission of Mercy, Give Kids a Smile, and Girls on the Run to name a few! She also teaches at St. Vincent de Paul one day a month as she is passionate about teaching. She received the Dominick DePaola Future Dental Educator and Careers in Dental Education Awards in dental school.
Outside of the office you can find Dr. Miller hiking, biking, running with her husband and reading the best fiction she can get her hands on while drinking the best espresso in the Valley! She runs 3-10 miles a day to train in order to compete in road and trail races. Dr. Miller speaks Spanish and is 100% Greek!
Throughout the years she has developed strong patient relationships. Not too long ago a new patient came into the office for an examination and said “I know you, Eyvette, you were my ortho assistant when I was teenager 30 years ago.” What a great time she has had rekindling that relationship.
Eyvette earned her science degree in Dental Hygine from Phoenix College in 1999. She continues her education by regularly attending seminars that keep her advised of the new advancements and technology that make dentistry better than it has ever been for the patients as well as the dental staff.
In addition to her dental hygiene duties she also has extensive experience in non-surgical periodeontal therapy. She is CPR certified, x-ray certified, and licensed to administer local anesthesia and nitrous oxide. She also has many years of experience working with high fear patients that prefer to be consciously sedated due to their dental apprehensions.
Eyvette is passtionate about improving the health and beauty of her patients smiles. She has received many personal notes of gratitude. One patient states, ” my income has increased since I have improved my oral hygiene habits!” Another patient states,”I love my bright new smile and I am no longer scared to go to the dentist!” It’s times like this that help her realize she is making positive changes in her patients lives.
When she is not in the office she enjoys spending time with her family and friends traveling, hiking and camping. She also loves to play games, sing, dance, go to the movies and play tea party with her grand children.
Eyvonne married her high school sweetheart and they have two daughters, two sons-in-law and nine precious grandchildren. When Eyvonne is not at the office she enjoys family history and loves spending weekends away camping in the cool pines having fun with family and friends.

I really enjoyed my experience at Gilbert Road Dental. The office was really nice, and the Doctor was really friendly, gentle, and funny. I normally don’t like going to the dentist, but I will definitely go back there again.

I have been going to Gilbert Road Dental Care since I moved to the valley back in 2000. I have nothing but the best to say about each and every one of my experiences. They are all so gentle and knowledgeable.)

Recently moving to AZ, I had to find a new dentist. After having had 1 great dentist for the last 30+ years, I was nervous if I would be able to find another one that I would be happy with. I randomly selected Gilbert Road Dental. I couldn’t be any happier with my decision.
