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.

I found this place using maps and google reviews while looking for a new dentist. Unlike any dentist I’ve been to before! Everyone in the office is incredibly personable and always smiling. The dentists are professional but are open to laughing and having a good time. Which is important, because if you can’t laugh at work then it’s not a career. I think I’ve found my new dentist!!
This is the best dentist I have ever been to. They take the time to explain all procedures and they are extremely professional. The location is great and the instruments and machines they use are new and high quality. Highly recommend.
The practice is so warm and friendly and they really listen to what you need. They have always given me options for what I could do instead of just going in and doing what they want (like many dentists seem to do).
Even the reception staff are so helpful and accommodating to your needs.
By far the best dentist I’ve been to and cannot reccomend them enough.
