Clinical protocols, dental curriculum and student-faculty interactions have changed significantly in the three decades since Dr. Amp Miller was hired as a part-time instructor in fixed prosthodontics.

Now this longtime employee of Texas A&M Health Science Center Baylor College of Dentistry has not one job but two: professor in the Department of Restorative Sciences and director of curriculum in the Office of Academic Affairs.

In his teaching role, Miller directs the preclinical fixed prosthodontics course and several graduate prosthodontics courses. He also teaches occlusion, comp care, ethics and fixed prosthodontics in the D3 courses. In the Office of Academic Affairs, he works with students, faculty, staff and administrators to facilitate scheduling and curriculum updates.

“I like the working interactions with students, faculty and staff, particularly the ability to monitor curriculum and to facilitate scheduling and changes,” Miller says. “I really appreciate the friendships I’ve made over the years.”

As an examiner for the Western Regional Examining Board, Miller participates in several exams each year. He enjoys golf and tennis in his spare time.

He is married to Dr. Barbara Miller, associate professor and executive director of the Office of Recruitment and Admissions. Their daughter recently graduated from the University of Texas at Austin and is now studying astrophysics at Oxford on a Rhodes scholarship. Their son is a junior at UT-Austin, studying radio, film and television in the College of Communications.

“I have a great family,” Miller says.
