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.

Great service, friendly staff, and an excellent experience!
Dr LIndsay Flumerfelt is my absolute favourite dentist! She knows her stuff, really listens, and stays on top of the latest in dentistry so I know I'm getting a well rounded, and thoughtful evaluation. She has made suggestions about my teeth and my smile that I really appreciate. She obviously pays attention to detail and has a beautiful sense of aesthetics.
This is my second dentist here in Vancouver, and wow, what a difference! From my first patient exam to cavity work to wisdom teeth removal, Dr. Okyere is unbelievably knowledgeable and does great work. Her passion for what she does shows in her diligence in thorough exams, her explanations, and her follow up.
I also love that I can opt-in for text reminders! The admin team is organized and always a treat to interact with.
Oh, and has anyone mentioned the amazing free chapstick they have at reception? They're seriously the best. Would recommend to all my friends and family!
I've recently caught up on some overdue dental work. As someone who pays full fare, it's usually an agonizing experience. Dr Lindsay Flumerfelt at La Vita Dental Care walked me through every step of the process, providing a solid opinion with all of my options. She actually managed to freeze my lower jaw properly (which has basically never happened and I've just dealt with the pain before), and she made every effort to make the process as smooth as possible. Most strikingly she recently offered to come in on a Sunday night to fix a bite problem if it was still bothering me, so I wouldn't have to travel for the following two weeks with a sore tooth. That really blew me away.
The clinic itself is lovely, and they are on top of technology, offering digital x-rays and the like. The clinic has never tried to pressure premium services like whitening on me, although I know my options and they offer a variety of services. I can't recommend Dr Flumerfelt enough.
I went here for a new patient exam and cleaning. Making a reservation for a time which suited me was convenient, particularly given that the dental centre is open on evenings and Saturdays. Dr. Okyere was very professional and was clearly extremely knowledgeable about dental care. It was obvious from the moment I walked in that I would be well looked after and that my dental health was important to the people that work at La Vita Dental.
Dr O is terrific - I've referred about 5 people to La Vita already because of her. Great location too - after my appointments I always go shop at Whole Foods next door.
