Dr. Trey Miller& Dr. Sladjana Bjelac
Doctor Trey Miller comes from a middle-class, humble family, where he learned the fundamentals of hard work and integrity. His dad, Bryan, helps run a family owned Grading and Septic Tank business and is a General Contractor. Growing up he helped his father in his business and it’s amazing some of the transferable skills of building a house and building a tooth!
Dr. Trey attended Gardner-Webb University playing Division 1 Baseball as a Catcher. He majored in Biology with a double minor in Chemistry and Psychology. During his time in undergrad, Dr. Trey was drawn towards the medical field. He knew he wanted to help people, but after internships in medicine there was still a missing link. After graduating, Dr. Trey took a different route and fell into the sport of cycling. He quickly excelled and became a professional cyclist and traveled all over the country racing! During that time he also put his Biology degree to good use and worked for Mecklenburg County for 5 years managing the recycling programs for Charlotte Mecklenburg School Systems, including developing a nationally recognized award-winning program. However, the longing for medicine and helping people never left him. Along the way Dr. Trey was inspired by a Dentist, he now calls a friend and colleague, to enter the field of Dental Medicine!
Through hard work and perseverance Dr. Trey left his job and pursued Dentistry by attending West Virginia University School of Dentistry and never looked back. While attending school he received several awards including the International Congress of Oral Implantologist Pre-Doctoral Student Achievement Award and The Southeastern Academy of Prosthodontics Outstanding Excellence in Prosthodontics Award. Upon graduation Trey worked for multiple years in Private practice where he gained valuable skills. During this time, he continued his education in Implantology CE and became the primary surgeon for the General Dentistry Practice where he resided.
Now Dr. Trey, his wife Hannah, and their two children, Max and Sophie are pleased to announce Dr. Trey is bringing his experience and expertise to the City of Harrisburg, NC. He prides himself in giving the community a practice that gives an exceptional dental experience, convenient hours from 7-7 and on weekends, and a high quality of care!
Dr. Sladjana Bjelac was born and raised in Bosnia and Herzegovina in a small village close to town. During this time, the Bosnian War was in full force, and “Dr. B” was forced to mature and take on responsibilities at the very young age of five. As a result of her upbringing, she learned to adjust to the most difficult of situations—always maintaining a positive, infectious attitude. At this time in Sladjana’s life, her dental health was a low priority. She had few remaining teeth, and what was left had extensive decay. As a result, she was ridiculed and taunted by her peers, which left her determined to never be the same. From a young age, Sladjana knew she would pursue dentistry as a career. She wanted nothing more than to set an example for herself, her family, and to help others that struggled with a similar past.
Sladjana attended the School of Dentistry at the Medical University of Banja Luka. She graduated with the highest grades in her class. Being the first person in her family to attend college, she was very proud of her accomplishments, but felt she wanted more. Sladjana knew she wanted to be a leader in dentistry, and to reach this goal she’d have to concentrate heavily on research and mastering clinical skills.
Sladjana’s desire to broaden her scope brought her to the United States, and eventually, Virginia Commonwealth University School of Dentistry in Richmond, VA, where she obtained her degree to practice in the United States. She graduated with honors and held a position on the Dean’s List, again at the top of her class. Sladjana is a member of the American Dental Association, North Carolina Dental Society, and obtained the American Equilibration Society Award.
Sladjana worked in the private sector as well as in a corporate setting as the Managing Clinical Director prior to coming to Smile Solutions Dentistry. The opposing health philosophies from two nations have fostered her own unique and realistic perspective on the standard of care. She has the commitment and passion for helping others and prides herself in her ability to educate and keep her patients healthy and happy.
Dr. Bjelac and her husband of 13 years have two children and reside in Charlotte. In her free time, she enjoys architectural remodeling, interior design, flowers, and landscaping. Sladjana loves dancing, being outdoors with family, relaxing walks, easy bike rides, travel, and learning the culture of others.
Your dental experience is optimized in a stress-free environment with a team that truly cares.
