So you have decided to start orthodontic treatment for yourself or your child. Congratulations! Choosing the best orthodontic practice for you or your child is a big decision. Here our 5 things you need to consider before you begin treatment.
- Hours of Operation
What is the doctor’s educational background? What kind of continuing education or specialty does the doctor have? Are they a licensed member of the American Association of Orthodontists?
Dr. John Lupini D.D.S.,MS graduated in 1994 from the University of Michigan, graduating first in his dental school class. He is a member of the American Association of Orthodontists, Great Lakes Association of Orthodontists, Michigan Association of Orthodontists, American Dental Association, Michigan Dental Association and the Detroit District Dental Society.
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 has a history of providing orthodontics for special needs children. He is aware of the unique requirements these patients require and how to cater to them. This means that during your consultation and treatment, everything will be much easier and more comfortable for you and your child.
How long has the doctor been treating patients? How experienced are they with treatment like yours? Who will be overseeing your treatment: the doctor or assistant? Do they have Google and or Facebook reviews? And if so how are they?
With over 20 years of experience Dr. Lupini has treated thousands of patients. Treating the most complex cases. Making him a leader in orthodontics.
Dr. Lupini takes a very hands-on approach. He strategically places every orthodontic bracket and band himself based on his experience and thoughtful planning. Bracket and band placement is the most important aspect of treatment. This should always been done by your orthodontist. Not an assistant.

Dr. Lupini and the entire staff at True Orthodontics are wonderful, all three of my kids have had braces and all three were lucky enough to see Dr. Lupini in Wyandotte. Would highly recommend!!!!!!
How convenient is the office? Is the office located near your work, school or home? Does the office have multiple locations? If they do are those other offices convenient for you in the case of an emergency?
I cannot express how important location is. You or your child will be seeing the orthodontist, at the minimum, once a month. So you want to choose an office that is most convenient to your needs. You also need to consider any satellite offices the doctor has. Emergencies don’t always happen when the doctor is at the location you have chosen. Choosing a doctor who has multiple locations means you might have to travel to their other offices.
