Outside the office, Dr. Miller spends his time with his wife, Sarah, and his four children, Adelle, Graham, Greta and Hilde. He enjoys reading, gardening (admittedly a brown thumb), being goofy with his children, and traveling to visit family in Ft. Wayne or Pennsylvania.
Our goals in the office include:
- Making Ritz-Carlton service as available as a McDonald’s cheeseburger
- Bettering himself and staff through further study and training
- Increasing services to continue to provide comprehensive care
- Growing personally and professionally to make his office the best in town—where people feel comfortable and gladly send friends and family because they were surprised by the quality of service and care provided.

Mark Wikkerink, Marketing Director & Front Office
Mark was raised in a small town on a large island off the west coast of Canada. Many people ask how he ended up in Indiana, and the simple answer I like to give is that I was imported by my wife.
Mark graduated from Dordt College in Iowa in 2006. He holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in both Business Administration and Graphic Design. After college, Mark moved near the Rocky Mountains and worked as a wedding photographer and in sales. He moved to Indiana in 2013, and has been loving it ever since (except for the lack of snow).
In the office, Mark is the one you will greet you warmly, and he strives to make your appointments as comfortable and pleasant as possible!
In his spare time, Mark and his wife have renovated a duplex and enjoy working on projects around the house. Mark has also embraced the foodie culture lately, and enjoys trying new recipes or trying to get the perfect espresso shot. In the past years, Mark has built 9 gardens and planted numerous fruit trees and plants. He is looking forward to reaping the rewards of his hard work, especially the blackberries, peaches, raspberries, and cherries!
