He came home to open his first practice that very same year and has been enjoying his patients ever since.
Staying on the leading edge of dental technology has always been Dr. Milligan's goal. That's why he has compiled over 1700 hours of post-doctorate continuing education to stay current and even ahead of the game in all aspects of dentistry. You will find that Dr. Milligan's helpful and experienced staff members are also highly trained and up-to-date in all areas.

"My wife and 4 children are the central focus of my life. I love them very much. I am very active in my Church, too. I have to confess, though… I have one more passion - Golf. I spend as much time as I can enjoying the beauty of Mother Nature on the golf course. Golf is a game of honor and integrity where you never stop learning, where you are continually challenged to grow and improve. I think that's why I love the game so much. It reflects my philosophy of life."
