Taciane Miller

My name is Taciane, but my family, friends, and patients call me Taci. I was born and raised in Brazil. I moved to the USA in my early 20s to pursue a better education. I always wanted to work in the health care field because I have a passion for science and helping others.

I graduated from University of Maryland Dental School in Baltimore with a bachelor’s degree in dental hygiene. I am passionate about my job and patients. Helping my patients improve their oral health and overall wellbeing is my priority. My job has allowed me to meet many great people. I love when I can help someone get their confidence and smile back.

I am thankful every day to be part of Dr. Kelvin B. Smith's dental team where we take pride in giving our patients the best care. In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my family, friends, and my dog, Sunny. My interests are volunteering, staying healthy, admiring nature, hiking, following Baltimore sports, and attending Orioles games.

Breon Reid

My name is Breon Reid. I was born and raised in Baltimore, MD.
My passion for Dental Hygiene began as a child. I’ve always been a stickler for oral care. My interest in having good oral care continued throughout my adulthood. So I wanted to make it into a career.

I was licensed by the Maryland State Board of Dental Examiners after receiving my associates of art degree and graduating from Baltimore City Community College. 
My dental philosophy is focused on creating a relatable environment for my patients. I want to always care for my patients as if they were my family. Let me be your “dental mom!” It’s important for me to educate my patients about the significance of oral healthcare and working together to reassure optimal oral health continuously through the future.

I chose to work for the Kelvin B. Smith DDS Family Dentistry because I wanted to be a part of a professional and team oriented environment that will contribute to my expertise in dental care. This practice has been wondrous in making that happen as I’ve met and become close with many patients.
In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my three kids.

Janice Vaughters

I was born and raised in Baltimore, MD, the younger of two girls. 
My passion for Dental Hygiene began shortly after graduating from Patterson High School where I studied bookkeeping and accounting. My passion for Dental Hygiene comes with a paved background for cleanliness. As a native Baltimorean, we scrub white marble steps with Ajax every Saturday Morning.

I was licensed by the Maryland State Board of Dental Examiners after receiving my associates of art degree and graduating upon Who’s Who for Junior Colleges. Immediately following, I started my Dental Hygiene career working for practices both large and small. I’ve been practicing hygiene for over 26 years. 

Currently I am with an amazing dental team at Kelvin B. Smith DDS Family Dentistry. Here as a team, we provide up-to-date, optimal dental care and receive great encouragement in continuing education by attending ADA meetings.  Over the past fifteen years, I have been privileged to travel to San Francisco, Philadelphia, San Antonio, Hawaii, New Orleans, District of Columbia, and Denver.

I always enjoy a good meal with family and friends, especially Sundays after church where I serve as a born again Christian with my mom and sister. During the holidays, we enjoy cooking and “Breaking Bread” together.  My house is also always open for a host of nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews. “Ain’t no ship like a fellowship!”
