Dentist in Livonia, MI

All our professionals at James E. Mikula D.D.S. maintain the highest levels of accreditation and pursue ongoing education to stay abreast of the latest trends in dentistry.

Dr. Jim has known dentistry all his life. After deciding to go into the dental field, graduating from The University of Detroit, Dr. Jim began working alongside his father Dr. Edward Mikula in 1986. From there he started his own practice in 1994, at the same location we are currently. He was raised in the area and now resides here in Livonia with his family.

An interesting fact about Dr. Jim is that he graduated from Albion College receiving a Bachelors Degree of Liberal Arts with majors in both Psychology and Anthropology. Years later, following in his footsteps, all three of his children attended and graduated from Albion College. If you ever visit the college, look for their brick!

When he is not seeing patients, Dr. Jim enjoys spending time with his wife Diane and their three children Jacob, Olivia and Madeleine. When the weather is nice, you can catch him playing golf with his son, working alongside his wife in their garden or relaxing Up North with his family.

When it comes to your oral health, Dr. Jim believes that our office and our staff works for you, the patient. Whatever you need, we will do everything in our power to make it happen. By combining our extensive dental knowledge and experience with your oral health goals, we will take care of you. 

“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.
