About Us

JoeArchitect is a full service architecture and interior design firm located in Denver’s Lower Downtown (LoDo).  We are the established leader in dental, orthodontic and dental specialty office design.  At JoeArchitect our goal is simple: to be the best in the world at what we do.  What we do is design one-of-a-kind dental facilities.  In 1999 Joe Miller designed his first dental office.  In that experience, he recognized an opportunity to elevate the dental work environment from the cold, clinical spaces he remembered from his childhood to something special… an office environment that would be unique to the doctor and his/her personal brand.  Together with Joe Church, Kristi Volskis and Eric White they have endeavored to surround themselves with like-minded design professionals with a similar passion for being the best and working with the best.
