Meet Your Team
Dr. Jenny Miedema
Dr. Jenny Miedema first arrived in Maine in 1994, when her father, a Navy Dentist, was stationed at Brunswick Naval Air Station. After graduating from Morse High School in Bath, ME, Jenny attended Dickinson College in Carlisle, PA where she earned a B.S. in both Biology and Psychology. Upon graduation, she spent 3 years in the Army Signal Corps. After traveling the world, Jenny decided to follow in her father’s footsteps to become a dentist. She was a member of the inaugural class at the University of New England College of Dental Medicine, graduating in 2017. After graduation, she then completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) residency at the VA Dental Clinic in Togus, ME. Following residency, Jenny continued to serve the veteran community by practicing at Togus as a staff dentist. Jenny is a compassionate dentist who enjoys building relationships with her patients so that she can better understand their dental needs and goals. She believes in cultivating a relaxing and gentle environment so that patients feel at ease while receiving dental treatment. Outside of dentistry, Jenny enjoys many of the outdoor activities that Maine has to offer. She loves golfing and skiing with her teenage son, Colten.
Dr. Shilo Annis
Dr. Shilo Annis is a native Mainer. He’s taken an interesting and circuitous path to become a dentist. Upon his graduation from Windham High School, he enlisted in the Army. During his time in the military, he was stationed in many locations around the world and spent several years as an Apache Helicopter Pilot. Eventually, Shilo went on to become a federal agent flying for Customs and Border Protection in San Diego.
While Dr. Annis will always value the time he spent in the Army, he found it important to look toward his home state to see how he could best be of service to his fellow Mainers. He returned to Maine to study at the University of Southern Maine. From there, he attended the University of New England and proudly graduated in the inaugural class of the College of Dental Medicine. Shilo is a compassionate and caring dentist in Buxton, Maine who envisions maintaining local practices where he can treat and serve local people for many years to come. In his free time, Dr. Annis enjoys a variety of activities and looks forward to spending time with his wife and two daughters. “Yes, I enjoy making beautiful smiles. Moreover, I really enjoy helping someone that is anxious at the dentist become more relaxed and providing solutions for their concerns.”
