Alexis Kirkland-Miller, DDS

“Orthodontics is more than my profession; it's my passion. I am so fortunate to have the opportunity to create long-lasting relationships with wonderful people, and positively affect their lives by helping create their beautiful smiles.”
-- Dr. Kirkland-Miller

Dr. Alexis Kirkland-Miller, a native of Brooklyn, NY, first fell in love with the D.C. metropolitan area while pursuing her undergraduate degree at the University of Maryland College Park (Go Terps!). Upon receiving her Bachelor of Science in finance, she returned to her hometown to work for an investment bank. She however, soon found the fast-paced, strenuous work environment very unfulfilling.

Determined to have a career that made a difference in the lives of others, Dr. Kirkland-Miller decided to return to Washington, D.C. to pursue a career in orthodontics. Dr. Kirkland-Miller graduated from Howard University with her Doctorate of Dental Surgery and certificate in orthodontics. She also earned membership in the prestigious Omicron Kappa Upsilon honorary dental society.

She is currently a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, the American Dental Association, the National Dental Association, the American Association of Women in Dentistry, the Middle Atlantic Society of Orthodontics, and the Maryland State Society of Orthodontists. Dr. Kirkland-Miller regularly attends continuing education seminars to keep current of the latest technologies and treatment procedures.
