This network is a joint project with the University of Melbourne, the ADA and General Dental Practitioners (GDP).

Outside of the Practice

In March 2012 and 2013, Dr Miller volunteered her dental services to aid a Rotary International humanitarian project in Vietnam, working in rural areas with primary school-age children and training local dentists. In October 2012, she dedicated her time to visiting indigenous communities with the Royal Flying Doctor Service in the Malee region of rural northwest Victoria.
