Dr. Miles R. Cone is a graduate of Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, and completed a three-year Prosthodontic residency program while serving in the United States Army before being honorably discharged as a field grade officer in the rank of Major. Miles' current role in civilian life revolves around his position as a clinician and founder of Nuance.
Miles is currently the youngest prosthodontist in Maine and one of only three in the state to have achieved board certification and diplomate status within his specialty. Also of note, Miles is one of only two prosthodontists in the entirety of New England to have obtained additional qualifications as a Certified Dental Technician. These rare aptitudes lay the framework for many of the techniques and research that Miles publishes in various peer-reviewed academic journals, and have also created a unique opportunity for Miles to serve as a Key Opinion speaker and thought leader for some of the most prestigious dental companies in the world, including GC American, Amann Girrbach, Smile Line USA, and Straumann Implants.
As an active member of the local dental community in Portland, Miles continuously provides pro-bono treatment for Maine residents in need and takes time out from his private practice at Nuance to teach prosthodontics several days a week at the University of New England College of Dental Medicine. At the state level, Miles holds a seat on the Maine Dental Association’s Council for Government Relations, and is a frequently invited to present his work at study clubs and dental meetings. Nationally, Miles partakes as a guest speaker at several of the top academic institutions, with recent venues including Harvard, Iowa, Stony Brook, San Francisco, Buffalo, and Maryland. Additionally, Miles serves as a moderator and lecturer at numerous dental conferences including the American Dental Association (Washington, DC), the American College of Prosthodontists (San Diego, CA), the American Prosthodontic Society (Chicago, IL), and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry (Las Vegas).
When Miles is not at the chair or the lab bench, ultra-running and technical rock climbing occupy a large part of his attention. As a die-hard vegan, Miles is not very popular with the local seafood industry of greater New England, however, Miles makes up for lost ground with his endless monetary contributions to the Red Sox and Patriots Pro Shops. Despite these, and other quirky penchants, such as an endless need to fabricate teeth, Miles’ singular focus is on his wife, Cornelia, and their four children: Koba, Disa, Stander, and Theron... undeniably the most remarkable and beautiful of all his creations.
