Patient-Focused Care Downriver

Dr. Lupini takes a very hands-on approach. He strategically places every orthodontic bracket himself based on his experience and thoughtful planning. He prefers to keep things simple. Some orthodontic treatment options such as headgear and bulky functional appliances are just too difficult for a child to wear sufficiently to accomplish the desired result. Instead, Dr. Lupini prefers to use methods that are the least troublesome, especially for his child patients. Even a child’s parents will feel less burdened by the orthodontic treatment process.

Dr. Lupini is an active supporter and resident of the Downriver community. He maintains high-quality orthodontics through continuing-education courses as well as staying current on the latest orthodontic research, technology, and treatment options such as tooth-colored braces (white braces), clear braces/invisible braces, clear aligners/invisible aligners, clear retainers, and orthodontic expander options.

Dr. Lupini welcomes patients from Southeastern Michigan, Downriver including: Grosse Ile, Woodhaven, Wyandotte, Taylor, Lincoln Park, Rockwood, Southgate, Gibraltar, Brownstown, and surrounding communities.
