Trust Dr. Zirkle will make your filling appointment a breeze.  Nobody likes to hear they need a filling.  You are not alone.  Trust we use the best materials, no matter what the cost is.  You deserve the best!  We have it.  Trust that this will be a painless procedure, and will probably get done quicker and with a nicer final result then you are used to.  


Trust having a tooth extracted by Dr. Zirkle will be done with care.  This can be a particularly anxious time.  Trust Dr. Zirkle has alot of experience extracting teeth.  He will put you at ease, and have the tooth out in no time in the safest possible way.

Brian Zirkle

Dentist Extraoridinaire

I'm a dentist, husband, and father of 2 little girls.  That consumes 99% of my time.  The last 1% of time I use to do DIY projects, and tinker in the garage.  I grew up working with my hands, and that has stayed with me.  I'm also a huge MSU fan, but like most families we are a family divided so UM fans are welcome.  I also really enjoy traveling and visiting new waterparks with my kids.



Office Superstar

Donna has worked in the dental field for over 20 years.  Before joining Okemos Dental Care, she worked with Dr. Zirkle as an assistant.  She enjoys building relationships with people and is eager to help with any dental or insurance questions.  She has 3 kids and 4 grandchildren.  When not at work she loves spending time with family and friends.

Awesome Patients

Sam Kasperski

Love this place.  You can tell Dr. Zirkle cares about his patients not only by the improvements he is making to the office but how the old staff are 100% on board.  As always, reception was great, cleaning was awesome, and doctor was friendly.  Can't ask for much more.
