Laurie graduated from OHSU School of Dentistry with a Bachelor of Science in dental hygiene in 1976, and then continued on to dental school, graduating as a dentist in 1981. She practiced dentistry in Hillsboro with her husband Dr. James A. Miller for 18 years. She and Dr. Miller have been married for over 40 years and have two adult married daughters and 3 grandchildren. She retired from dentistry in 1999 to continue raising their daughters and is now happy to return the office to support the front office staff as a new patient coordinator and to manage the dental hygiene schedule. Dr. Hesla believes in and understands the value of the high quality of dentistry that Dr. James Miller continues to provide for his patients.
Linda has worked for Dr. Miller for the past 18 years and has been in dentistry for 32 years. Linda graduated from California State University, Hayward in 1995. She acquired her Oral Surgery Assistant Certification in 2003 and maintains her ACLS (Advanced Cardiac Life Support) every two years. She also has certification for starting IV’s and doing blood draws. In the office, she will assist Dr. Miller in various procedures and spends a great deal of her time working and consulting one on one with patients so they have a complete understanding of their recommended treatment.
