Dr. James LoPrete

Dr. LoPrete grew up in Birmingham, Michigan. He has provided comprehensive cosmetic and restorative dentistry to over five generations of Oakland County families.

After completing undergraduate studies at DePauw University, Dr. LoPrete earned his D.D.S. degree from Indiana University and then completed a post-doctoral residency at nearby St. Joseph Mercy Hospital where he continues to train young dentists. Dr. LoPrete personally oversees every aspect of his practice to ensure compassionate, professional dental care in a relaxed environment. He currently belongs to the Academy of General Dentistry and the Spear Study Club.

Continuing education is an important aspect of Dr. LoPrete’s career. To remain on the leading edge of dentistry, Dr. LoPrete has a long history of membership in many dental organizations and he is a regular participant at professional conferences both as an attendee and as an instructor. He is a graduate of the Faculté for Orthodontic Research and the Misch International Implant Institute. He has been certified to treat patients with Invisalign. He also participates with two dental study clubs.

Dr. LoPrete was an early proponent of the cosmetic dentistry revolution. While the foundation of quality dental care must be based on health and function first, the opportunity to enhance a patient’s smile with cosmetic procedures provides remarkable outcomes. He began providing porcelain veneers, bonding and teeth whitening in the late 1980’s just as these procedures were being proven clinically sound. Today, Dr. LoPrete enjoys seeing many of his earliest cosmetic patients still smiling.
