Meet the Staff

Hi! I am Kristina Miller and for the last three years, I’ve been employed with Heritage Dental. I have accepted a new position as office manager. I am beyond grateful for this next chapter in my career where I have the opportunity to grow even more with this company. I bring a 15-year dental background to Heritage dental; I’ve worked in an array of positions that I firmly believe have molded me into the well-rounded clinician that I am today. With our recent change of ownership, we are now offering more services and more appointment times. At home, I am a proud mom of two beautiful little girls, Charlie Grace and Emma Jo, and married to the love of my life who looks like he could moonlight on duck dynasty. You can find us at the pool most weekends or anywhere outside in our hometown of King George!

This year I joined Dr. Willhide and his fabulous team at Heritage Dental and couldn’t be happier. I was born and raised in Fredericksburg and graduated from Chancellor High School with a license in Cosmetology, my first love. After working in a salon for years and starting my own, I decided it was time for something new. I then discovered my new love for dentistry. Since then I have graduated from Germanna Community College as Certified Dental Assistant and have been in the dental field ever since. Over the years I have gained experience in all aspects of the dental field such as hygiene assisting, dental assisting, lV/ sedation dentistry, implant dentistry, front desk, scheduling coordinator to office manager. All positions have been extremely rewarding for me.

On my free time I spend time with my husband and three very active children. We share a love for all sports and enjoy being on the soccer fields with the kids on the weekends.

Debbie Shelby - Dental Assistant/Sleep Appliance Coordinator
I was born in Kentucky, and have lived in several states before coming to Virginia. I’ve always had an interest in the medical and dental fields, and have worked at a hospital in ER Admissions, Medical Records, and the Lab. I wanted to be more involved clinically, and working as a dental assistant for Dr. Willhide allows me to do that. I’ve been part of his team for over 10 years, and love what I’m doing! I get a great deal of satisfaction from educating our patients about their oral health, or the challenge I am provided with when on occasion, a patient may come in apprehensive or even fearful, and we are able to calm them down, reassure them, and have them smiling and laughing before long! We have a great team and great patients. I especially enjoy endodontics, and am involved with our Invisalign and Sleep Appliance cases as well. It is a wonderful feeling to know that we really do help make our patients’ lives better. Many people with Obstructive Sleep Apnea who are unable to wear or tolerate a CPAP machine have found relief and a welcome solution in the dental sleep appliances we prescribe. My husband Don and I have been married for 34 years and have two children and two grandchildren. In my free time, I enjoy church activities, the great outdoors, and spending time with my family.
