Dr. Adam Cohlmia
Dr. Adam Cohlmia was born and raised in the greater Oklahoma City area. He graduated from Edmond Santa Fe High School in 2003, and then finished his undergraduate studies at The University of Oklahoma in 2007. In 2011, he graduated from the OU College of Dentistry.
In 2012, Dr. Cohlmia worked to complete his University of Oklahoma Advanced Education in General Dentistry (AEGD) Residency. This competitive OU College of Dentistry program lasts for one year and focuses on dental implant placement and dental restoration. Additionally, the professional training covers advanced dental procedures, including sinus augmentation (sinus lift procedure), complex dental restorative treatments (full mouth rehabilitation), and cosmetic dentistry procedures, such as veneers. An overview of sedation dentistry is also part of the postgraduate curriculum. Dr. Cohlmia was in private practice when Dr. Michael Kirk recruited him for El Reno Family Dentistry.
“My favorite part of being a dentist is working together with patients and staff toward a common goal,” Dr. Cohlmia says. “I love getting to know my patients and the people I work with. The opportunity to work in a family atmosphere makes every day fun. I think that I have a good sense of humor that puts the team and my patients at ease.”
Dr. Cohlmia also enjoys volunteering at his church and with family and friends. When he’s not working, he enjoys traveling, playing golf, fishing, and bowling. He also likes to spend as much time as possible at the lake and the family farm in Fairview, Oklahoma.
Professional Memberships and Associations:
Christopher W. Faulconer, DDS
Dr. Faulconer attended college at Oklahoma State University and earned his Doctor of Dental Surgery from OU College of Dentistry in 2011. He also completed an AEGD (Advanced Education in General Dentistry) as the Chief Resident in 2012. Today, he continues to pursue advanced training to improve his skills even further, including cosmetic dentistry courses from the prestigious Las Vegas Institute.
When he was younger, Dr. Faulconer spent summers in Frederick, OK with his grandparents – those times are some of his favorite childhood memories today. Spending time in El Reno takes him back to those summers, and he loves being able to serve patients in this area. His philosophy regarding dentistry is as follows:
“I believe we should treat others the way we want to be treated. I practice this concept inside and outside of dentistry. I am also committed to lifelong learning which I use to provide patients with excellent care and an empowering experience while harnessing the best technology in dentistry.”

Michael K. Kirk, DDS
Dr. Kirk has lived in Oklahoma City for the past 25 years. He was born in southeastern Oklahoma and grew up in Tulsa. He takes an interest in every patient and will make you feel welcome and at ease.
"The absolute best part about being a dentist is the opportunity to really get to know those we serve. The relationships that I have been fortunate enough to develop with my patients over the past 15 or so years are priceless."
"Balance is important to me. Living a healthy lifestyle, spending time with my wife, daughter and two young sons, and taking time to be grateful are part of my daily routine."
"Being outdoors, whether doing yard work, enjoying an afternoon football game, or fishing a mountain stream is a big part of who I am.”
A Focus on the Future
"Education is a continual process of learning. I am constantly learning new techniques and expanding my training. I am always asking questions and looking at old problems in new ways."
