Dr. Sandra L. Miles - Your Trusted Emergency Dentist

Dr. Miles graduated from the University of Indianapolis in 1985 with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. After working for 3 years as a research biochemist, she decided that she wanted to dedicate a career to creating “pretty smiles.” So in 1988, dental school began at Indiana University School of Dentistry and there hasn't been any looking back. After the birth of her twins in 1991, she continued to work hard at her dental school studies and clinical work. She graduated in May of 1992, just before moving to North Carolina to take the state dental boards. She received her license in June of 1992 and began practicing the “art” of dentistry. 
She opened her own practice in 1996 at the current location on the corner of 16th and Market Street. She and her staff have strived, from the onset of the dental practice, to commit themselves to offer only the highest-quality service using the most up-to-date equipment and techniques for their patients. The experience of your dental visit will ensure that you achieve confidence and satisfaction in our practice. We all look forward to seeing you soon for all of your concerns and dental needs.
Olivia Dorroll, RDH

Olivia joined our office as a part-time hygienist in October of 2004, but quickly became full-timer later that same year. She graduated from Coastal Community College Dental Hygiene in June of 2004. Through her enthusiasm, she has brought a bright attitude to the office that our patients and staff appreciate. She is a motivated person and loves working with her patients. She is eager to educate her patients and answer any of the questions they may have about the most up-to-date modern dental techniques available to them. Her patients are thrilled with her gentle touch and thorough treatment. She enjoys working out and walking with her dog (also named Olivia) whom she rescued in 2016.
Joanie Eschert, CDA

Joanie came to our team in July 2007. She has been enjoying her career as a dental assistant since 1993. She is originally from New Jersey, where she received her formal education in dental assisting. She has lived in Wilmington since she graduated in 1994 and is married to Bill, the love of her life. 

She has enjoyed the transition from her long-time employment with her previous dentist to our office. She has been using these skills to help our patient family obtain the best-quality dentistry available. 
Her enthusiasm transcends to those around her, and her genuine concern helps to make her patients feel comfortable and assured during their visits. We all look forward to having her with us for many more years to come. In addition to being a phenomenal dental assistant, she loves to read and cook, and she enjoys chocolate any chance she gets. She is also the proud grandma of a beautiful boy!
Tracy Coleman

Tracy has worked with us since early 2003. She and her husband have two sons, Bryce, who began kindergarten in 2010, and Kellan, who was born September of 2009. She enjoys spending her free time at the beach and on the boat with her family. Tracy came to our team with no dental experience, but has been eager to learn all she can about our exciting profession. Her youthful eagerness shows daily in our office. She greets our patients with warmth and kindness on the phone and when they enter our office. She is a team player and is always ready to take on a new task. We have watched her grow in her dental career and enjoy the excitement of the day-to-day dealings with our patients and with our team.
Annette Lewis, RDH

Annette came to our team in 2014. She has been a positive addition to our office with her dedication to her field. She is the consummate teacher and strives to help her patients in every way possible. She also helps out in other offices in town the other days of the week, but you can find her here on Tuesdays and Wednesdays. She married her best friend in 2015. She is the mother of two grown women and a doting grandmother to 3 beautiful girls. She likes to walk on the beach and has just recently taken up paddle boarding. We look forward to having her with us for years to come.
Gracie and Lola

Gracie and Lola were rescued in November 2009 by Dr. Miles and have been wandering the halls of the office ever since. At times, they will sit in your lap to help reassure you, but they will always be there to sniff out any animals you may be hiding from them. They are small, but they have big personalities, and they love showing off. All of our patients' love seeing them each time they come to visit! We are all animal lovers and would love to meet your four-legged family members, too. Many of our patients have already brought their babies in!
