Meet Our Sponsor: Renew Dental Arts

Did you know the average American spends 38.5 total days brushing their teeth over a lifetime?

Renew Dental Arts takes a comprehensive approach to dentistry, as nothing in the body functions in isolation. Dentistry is much more than 32 teeth, and many conditions present symptoms in the mouth. Dr. Miller’s training includes treating patients who aren’t getting a good night’s sleep due to sleep apnea, babies who are having trouble breast/bottle feeding and require a laser tongue tie or lip tie frenectomy, or the acid reflux that has been left undiagnosed and untreated.

We have invested in the latest technology to offer the best care to our patients, including our recent purchase of a 3D printer. This allows us to offer digital impressions, useful for treatment planning, crowns, Clear Correct aligners, and so much more! We also offer same day crowns and other final restorations.

Renew Dental Arts also understands that choosing an Indianapolis dentist is an important decision for your family. From the moment you walk in the door, you’ll be welcomed by a caring staff in a relaxed, stress-free environment where the whole family can feel at ease. Call our office at 317-602-8924 to schedule your appointment!
