Scott Miller, Certified Professional Retirement Coach (CPRC), joined Hixon Zuercher Capital Management as Life Coach in July 2021, having completely retired from dentistry after a 32-year career. He is now solely focused on leading Refocus Coaching after the release of Retirement Stepping Stones by Tony Hixon, co-founder of Hixon Zuercher.

After having gone through the Retirement transition process himself, Scott’s mission is to guide the way for others to maximize their ability to find meaning, live with purpose, and leave a legacy! Refocus Coaching’s purpose is to help people transition into a more purpose-filled life.


Originally from Wooster, Ohio, Dr. Miller moved to Findlay in 1989 where he began practicing dentistry. In 2021, Scott retired from dentistry having served patients for more than 32 years.  Scott has extensive experience with teaching leadership skills and helping people get to know themselves, asking the question, “Who am I and where do I want to go in life?”  For example, he has helped students make the transition from high school to the next phase of their life and figure out what they want to do in their careers. And now he is taking people from their careers to the next step of finding significance in the second half of their lives.
