About Us

 

Oak Bark Dental offers a full range of dental services. Alongside some of the best dentists in Lansing, MI, our goals are to uphold professionalism, provide care, and promote the education of our patients about oral health, all while helping our patients love their smiles! 

Preventative Dentistry

Preventing oral health issues before they happen is one of the most important aspects of overall dental health.

 

Family Dentistry

Dental care for children should be incorporated into everyday life at an early age. Our methods allow us to help you promote the dental health of your children.

Dental Implants

Dental implants can be life changing.  If you’re looking to replace one tooth or multiple, dental implants can help to regain chewing power.

Endodontic Dentistry

Root-canal therapy is also known as endodontic therapy, which  helps remove infection from inside a tooth.

Aesthetic Dentistry

At Oak Bark Dental, our expertise is complete dental care. From extractions to whole-mouth restorations,  and more.

 

Airway Focused Dentistry

Airway dentistry is a passion of Dr. Palmer’s, that focuses on the structure of the mouth and impacts your breathing
