Dr. Milling’s blog


Anita Turnage, over 40 years

"This dental practice is my second family.  We have in a way, grown up together.  These ladies are actually like sisters to me.  We all have our jobs and believe working with children has kept us young.  My husband, Jim, and I have two grown children who have blessed us with five grandchildren.  These kids love to come to Nina's office for their cleanings, but they especially appreciate our toy board!  Their visits would not be complete without a new toothbrush."

Lydia Fondren, 40 years

"Both of my daughters grew up in this practice and now my five grandchildren are patients here, as well.  I have entrusted my family's care in this dental practice's hands because I have so much confidence in the work we do.  As a part of this practice, I feel we are all great friends as well as co-workers."

Teresa Walker, almost 30 years

"I've been happy working at Dr. Simmons, Young, and Milling's office because it has been my passion to work with children and young adults.  It's always been great having the opportunity to do so!"

Linda Hedgepeth, over 30 years

"Having worked here for over 30 years, I have not only seen patients come and grow up through our practice, but my own two daughters have grown up in this practice, as well.  As a parent, I was so grateful for the great care and quality of the work and attention given here.  As a dental assistant, I am very blessed to have a job where I work with children every day.  There is nothing like the innocence of a three year old."

Terri Hughes, over 30 years

"I became an employee with this practice after graduating from Ole Miss.  I have been working here for 35 years.  My children grew up in this office.  They both began coming here as toddlers and didn't want to leave us as young adults.  Now my granddaughter comes here.  Our motto has always been to treat everyone as family.  I believe you can feel this while visiting us."

Jackie Thayer, over 40 years

"I have had the privilege of being part of this practice for a long time -- I feel like we are as much a family as we are a practice.  That 'family feeling' provides a safe and comfortable atmosphere for our parents as well as our patients."

Alicia, over 10 years

"I have been working with Dr. Simmons and Dr. Young for over 10 years. My husband and I bring

our daughter here and she loves it. This office is our second family."
