“My philosophy revolves around you (the patient). This is your mouth, so I am here to advise and help you attain your goals of oral health. Many variables enter into care; apprehension, costs, time, needs and priorities. My job is to listen to you and then help you navigate to your desired endpoint.”

-Dr. Jim



Dr. Brian J. Bishop has strong ties to the area from growing up in Westland. He attended Central Michigan University and the University of Michigan School of Dentistry. After dental school he moved to Coastal Maine and practiced dentistry there for more than 12 years.

"My dental philosophy is early intervention. I realize there are a number of reasons why people delay dental procedures, but let's take care of small problems before they become big problems. You will be happier and healthier for it.”

Dr. Bishop has been working at Mikula Dental since September 2014 after moving back to Michigan from Maine. A little fun fact about Dr. Bishop is that he has been to Disney World almost a hundred times! He loves going there and will probably never get tired of it. If you have any questions about it, ask Dr. Bishop! When he isn't in the office you can find him walking his two dogs, Barkley and Benson, or rooting for the Detroit Tigers and Central Michigan University.
