With over 35 years of dental experience, Adela Mills brings a wealth of insight and knowledge to the table in her role of Founder and Lead Dental Hygiene Coach with Elite Dental Hygiene™. Her super networking abilities and people skills have gained her a reputation as a trusted ally and valued resource to the dental practices she serves. Adela has expanded her dental clinical skills with her experience as a Certified Dental Assistant, Certified Registered Dental Hygienist, Dental Insurance Provider Relations Manager, Dental Office Administrator, Dental Educator, and Program Director. Adela earned her degree in Dental Hygiene from Miami Dade College, her Bachelor’s Degree in Dental Hygiene and Dental Education from St. Petersburg College, and her Master’s Degree in Higher Education from Florida International University.

Adela’s membership in the American Dental Assistants Association, American Dental Hygienists Association, American Dental Education Association, and her involvement in the South Florida District Dental Association, are a testament to her passion for the field and her commitment to dentistry. Her active involvement with these organizations provides a glimpse at Adela’s desire to assist colleagues and friends to achieve outstanding results by applying excellent patient care and one-on-one coaching. Adela is a “thinking outside the box” professional who loves sharing her pearls of wisdom by establishing personal rapport. Mentored by the late L.D. Pankey, Jr., Adela’s quest for excellence and relationship-centered care stops at nothing to guarantee results through effective communication and team building skills.

Adela and Elite Dental Hygiene™ are the perfect fit by successfully coaching streamlining, and eliminating perceived obstacles. Adela manages to smoothly integrate and implement systems to naturally increase benchmarks in ultimate dental care while taking profitability to the next level. Adela’s philosophy of care is rooted in integrity and in bridging inter and intra-office communication – always viewing each team member as an integral care and business partner with the dentist-proprietor. Fluent in English, Spanish, and German, Adela’s multi-lingual abilities enable her to better identify with the diverse populations of South Florida. When she is not coaching dental practices, Adela has enjoyed teaching at various dental education institutions like Miami-Dade College, Nova Souheastern University, and presently leads the Dental Hygiene Program for Concorde Career Colleges, Inc. in South Florida. Adela delights in world travel with her husband Steve, parents, and two grown children Marcus and Krystel. To contact Adela, call (786) 512-8951 or email her at
