comes with this
Born in Mount Airy, North Carolina in 1961, she grew up dreaming
of attending the University of North Carolina. Her dream
came true! Both she and her twin sister received their undergraduate
degrees in 1983. While at Carolina, she was a member of Alpha
Phi Omega service fraternity and was elected to Phi Beta Kappa.
During her junior and senior years she volunteered at North Carolina
Memorial Hospital in the pediatric emergency clinic and also
volunteered at John Umstead Hospital. Here she worked with children
who had severe emotional problems. Not until senior year
did she decide on dentistry as her career choice.
Dr. McMillian entered the University of North Carolina School
of Dentistry in 1984 and graduated in 1988. She was a member
of Delta Sigma Delta dental fraternity and was elected to Omicron
Kappa Upsilon honor society. Although she loved many aspects
of dentistry, she really wanted to specialize in the field of orthodontics.
She began a three year residency at Ohio State University and graduated
with a Master’s degree and certificate in orthodontics in
1991. Wanting to come back closer to home, she chose Greensboro
as the best location to establish her practice, and has been there
She resides in Greensboro with her husband, John Goodman, and
their 3 ½ year old son, Max Thompson McMillian-Goodman.
She spends most of her spare time being a mom!
Dr. McMillian strives to provide an office where everyone feels
comfortable and is treated in a caring manner. She aspires
to quality orthodontic care for all of her patients, both children
and adults. This often includes treatment choices which
balance function and esthetics. She continues her education
with courses which help her stay in touch with the most recent
advances in the field of orthodontics. One of these is Invisalign,
for which she is a certified provider. She also keeps up to date
with her active memberships in organizations such as the Lagniappe
Dental Study Club, American Association of Orthodontics and
American Dental Association.
