Meet Dr. Marissa Miller

Marissa Miller, DDS grew up in central Maryland, the daughter of Kay and Bruce, who are both native Ohioans. After completing her undergraduate education at Miami University in Oxford, Ohio, Dr. Miller resided in Maryland and then Colorado for a time before realizing that her heart was in Ohio. She returned to Columbus, Ohio and attended The Ohio State University College of Dentistry, graduating in 2008.

Dr. Miller took over the dental practice at 100 W Main St, Shelby in the spring of 2010 and has never looked back. She relocated locally and loves getting to be part of the Shelby community and serving its wonderful residents.

A commitment to advanced dentistry is very important to Marissa. She takes up to 200 hours of continuing education each year to stay on top of improvements in dental technology and continually works to hone her own skills.

When not at the office Dr. Miller really enjoys being involved and out and about in the Shelby community. She is a member of the Shelby Rotary Club, and serves on the boards of The Shelby Foundation and Third Street Family Health Services. She also loves to travel and feels very lucky to get to attend advanced dentistry classes and conferences in other parts of the country.

Meet Dr. Carol Patel

Dr. Patel was born and raised in Long Island, New York. After completing high school, she relocated to Boston where she received her undergraduate degree in Biology from Northeastern University in 2012. She continued her education at Boston University School of Dental Medicine, graduating with her DMD in 2016. Prior to moving to Ohio, Dr. Patel practiced dentistry in Augusta, Georgia where her primary focus was children and young adults. She recently got married to her husband which brought her to Ohio.

When not treating patients, Dr. Patel loves spending time with friends and family, cooking, arts and crafts (including sewing), and traveling with her husband. She enjoys cooking Mexican food and is working on mastering Indian Cuisine.
