Legacy of Dr. Miller

Adam C. Miller, DDS, MD
Dr. Miller loved adventure, yet after globe trotting as a surgeon for six years, he got “altitude sickness” and hit the proverbial wall in SE Asia. From 2011-2013, he suffered from adrenal fatigue, dental breakdown, pericarditis, irritable bowel and intestinal parasites. That period was the big scare that got this successful surgeon, thinking differently about his health and the shortcomings of the US healthcare system. Nothing makes a doctor more passionate about helping others than experiencing life as a helpless patient. His passion for holistic and integrative care came first from his victory as a patient.
Dr. Miller dedicated his career to helping people recover from or prevent the stress-related diseases that wrecked their body.
Adam C. Miller DDS, MD passed away unexpectedly on May 23, 2022, at the age of 48 from a pre-existing heart condition. Adam began life in Jackson, Michigan and moved from Michigan to Whitefish Bay, Wisconsin in 1984, graduated from Whitefish Bay High School where he lettered in Baseball and Football, and attended the University of Wisconsin in La Crosse and Madison.
He received a DDS from Marquette University School of Dentistry in 1998, an MD from the University of Pittsburgh in 2002, completed an internship in Internal Medicine in 2002 and General Surgery in 2003 from Allegheny Hospital and named the Maxillofacial Surgery Chief Resident at Allegheny General Hospital in 2004.
He was the Medical Director at DuBois Laser Skin Center, in Dubois, Pennsylvania from 2005 to 2008, moved to Malaysia to become the Medical Director at the Center for Oral, Facial & Wellness in Normah, Malaysia from 2008 to 2013, founded Arise MD in Mequon, Wisconsin in 2015 and practiced holistic and integrative care serving patients in Wisconsin and around the world.
Dr Miller was Board Certified in Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Anti-Aging Medicine and held certifications in Anesthesia, Skin Cancer and Stem Cell medicine.
Adam is survived by his bride Brittney Eve Miller, parents Boyd and Susan Miller, Grandmother Nellie Miller, brother Dr. Todd R. Miller and wife Jennifer along with his beloved nephews, Sid and Rome.
He loved adventure, exploring the jungle or climbing mountains, skiing, mountain biking and trekking. His focus was living life to the fullest, to be the best he could be and always wanting to help others do the same.
He lived his life as a true disciple of Jesus Christ often sharing his love of the Lord with others and never doubted that —
“The best is yet to come…”
