HOUSTON-Joe J. Mills was born and raised in the fifth-largest metropolitan area in the U.S. with over 6 million people, Houston. Reared during an era of segregation and at a time when Blacks were not treated as equal to other races and cultures; Mills decided early that he would not fall victim to the chains that over taken so many of the Black youth in Houston during his early years.
Thus, he enrolled at Texas Southern University and received a Bachelor of Science degree. He later attended Medical School at the University Of Southern California, School Of Dentistry and graduated in 1977. After having receiving the required credentials, Dr. Joe J. Mills, D.D.S begin exercising and operating as a dentist. He is a dentist who is trained to diagnose, treat and prevent diseases of the gums, teeth and jaw. His heart’s desire was to improve the quality of oral healthcare of all Houstonians, as well as the underserved. Accordingly, he established Mills Dental Care Center in 2003, in the heart of the Acres Homes community. Being a resident of the community in his early years, he sought a goal to give back to the very grounds that he had been a part of. He is equipped with a very hospitable staff which, caters to the needs of all patients in a relaxed comfortable environment with state of the art equipment.
In 2008, Dr. Mills received the Certificate of Congressional Recognition Business Leader Award. He is committed to educating all patients with the knowledge that good dental health also promotes good health overall. He subscribes to a dental practice motto which states that, “a beautiful smile is always in style.”
While, Dr. Mills has a modest and quite humble demeanor he does not boast of the goodwill and acts that he has demonstrated to various members of the Black community. His profession has attributed him the experience of having served in the field of dentistry for over 36 years. Patients who have been cared for and treated by Dr. Mills believe that, “he is the best in the business and many are grateful that he takes the time to sit and speak with him about their concerns.”
Throughout the years, Dr. Mills has received awards and honors from all over the nation for his excellence in his field of operation. Although there is no proven correlation between the quality of one’s educational institution and the quality of one’s professional competence, it is often an indicator. Medical schools have various levels of selectivity (some are harder to get into than others), and both the quality of their clinical training and level of research are measured. Additional medical training in both residency and fellowships and the facilities they are conducted at also provide a history of the doctors’ level of training and experience. However, Dr. Mills has a proven record, the experience and compassion that suggest he is an expert in the industry of which he operates.
