Dr. Miekella Okyere
I love to travel. I love the adventure. But I know there’s something special about home. I grew up in the Vancouver area, and I’m grateful that I can spend my time paddle boarding in English Bay, hiking the North Shore, swimming at Kits Beach, or running to hot yoga. Home is a beautiful place.
I received my BSc in Microbiology at the University of Victoria, and my DDS at the University of Detroit Mercy. I was a scholarship recipient, and received the highest honours in Restorative Dentistry. I’ve been involved with research in the fields of embryology, cell and microbiology, and biomechanics.
I believe health and beauty are inherently linked and that the confidence that comes with a beautiful, healthy smile is powerful beyond measure. I want my patients to look and feel amazing so they can feel empowered to achieve their dreams. It’s what motivates me to embrace modern technology in dentistry and stay current with the newest innovations and research.
I believe in being a gentle and compassionate health care provider. That’s why I’ve spent time helping with local, national, and international dentistry services in rural and underserved communities. I’m now embracing the new adventure of taking care of a dog. He’s a labradoodle named Babar, and we are both so glad to be a part of the Kitsilano secret.

reviews of your kitsilano dentists
At La Vita Dental Centre, we invest our time into understanding you, not just your teeth. Check out what our patients have been saying about us!
The foh staff, dentists and hygienists are super friendly! They made me comfortable and welcome. They use state-of-the-art equipment that helped me see my teeth in various formats.
They scanned my mouth to actually show me underlining issues visually. It really helped me understand what needs to be done in the future. While I don't look forward to returning to fill in some cavities, I know I'll be in good hands.
My friend recommended this place and I wasn't disappointed! The staff is very kind and helpful and Dr. Flumerfelt is also very kind and did thorough check-up. You can feel that they care about your concerns. The office itself is clean and well maintained. Diane did great cleaning and gave me helpful tips to keep my teeth healthier. I highly recommend this place.
La Vita Dental has been great for handling my dental needs. They've found that great line of professional service mixed with friendly demeanour and a great, comfortable space. No one seems to enjoy visits to the dentist, but the crew at La Vita really make it a great experience.
