Mariah Naylor, DDS
It is with excitement and gratitude that I join the Milford Dental Excellence team! I was born and raised in the city of Milford along with both of my parents and younger brother, Garrett. I was a 2009 graduate of Goshen High School. After high school I went on to attend the University of the Cumberlands where I studied biology and played varsity women’s volleyball for 4 years, graduating in 2013. This took me to Columbus where I attended The Ohio State University College of Dentistry and graduated with my D.D.S in May 2018. Following graduation, I completed a 1-year residency at the Dayton VA Medical Center where I continued to learn and perfect my skills.
I am no stranger to Milford Dental Excellence as this has been my ‘dental home’ since I got my first tooth— Dr. Egbert was my family dentist as well as I have been a patient to many of the outstanding hygienists and rest of the staff. Growing up, Milford Dental Excellence was always a friendly and comforting place to be and from these experiences, I decided to pursue the field of dentistry. Once I shared this revelation with Dr. Egbert, Dr. Reineck, and soon to follow, Dr. Powers, they went on to provide me with exceptional mentoring and allowed me to shadow them throughout the pursuit of my career. This community has truly shaped me into who I am and has given me a great support system, hard work ethic and appreciation for working in a small community. I am proud to re-join and give back to the community of Milford and provide dental care to so many of the hard-working individuals and families that I have grown up around.
I appreciate every aspect of general dentistry and family dentistry is always an area that I wanted to pursue. I am looking forward to building life-long relationships with my patients and their families. I truly enjoy treating all ages and I aim to provide the best dental care possible while giving back to the community.

Outside the Office
In August 2017, I married my high school sweetheart of 10 years, Blake. He too is no stranger to the community of Milford as he currently holds the position of General Manager at Miami Athletic Club on Lila Avenue in the heart of the city. In our free time, we enjoy spending time on Norris Lake in Tennessee, working out, or you can find us at any local race track where Blake drives a late model racecar.
