Biography

Dr. Tupman is a native of the Niagara Region, having been raised in Niagara-on-the-Lake. He has always been heavily involved in a variety of sports, including Triple A hockey with the Niagara Falls Minor Thunder Association. Lowell completed high school in the Niagara region then attended Brock University and graduated on the Deans honours list with a Bachelor of Science degree after three years. Immediately following he was accepted for study at the University of Toronto Dental School. Dr. Tupman graduated from Dental School with the Joseph Harker Johnson award for excellence in Oral Surgery and Anaesthesia, and certification in Nitrous Oxide sedation. Captain Tupman then served four years as a dentist with the Canadian Armed Forces, based in Petawawa, Ontario. During his time in the military he provided comprehensive dental care to the men and women of the armed forces during the day, and in the evenings worked in private practice two nights a week providing care for the general non-military population. Upon completion of his military duty in June of 2009, Dr. Tupman returned to the Niagara region where he, his wife Joy and their daughter Leela happily reside, and plan to stay. Dr. Tupman is trained in all aspects of general dentistry including cosmetics, crown and bridge, dentures, root canals and tooth removal. Beyond which he is also trained in surgical dental implant placement, bone grafting and periodontal regenerative procedures and impacted wisdom tooth removal, allowing him to provide a very broad spectrum of treatment for his patients. Dr. Tupman has a keen interest in Dentistry, and maintains membership in the Ontario Dental Association (ODA), the Niagara Peninsula Dental Association (NPDA), and the Hamilton Dental Academy (HAD). He very actively pursues continuing education for his own enjoyment, and for the benefit of his patients. He has given lectures on radiation safety, and vital pulp therapy, and has attended a wide range of lectures covering issues such as ethics, temporo-mandibular (jaw) disorders, management of soft tissue wounds, and comprehensive treatment planning.

    After my first appointment I felt extremely confident that I chose the right dentist. I was less anxious than I usually am which is a huge plus. Everyone is super kind, friendly and informative! Amazing experience overall!

    My first visit to the dentist in two years went well. The office slotted me in on short notice, which was fantastic, and the appointment went smoothly. Everyone is efficient and very friendly. The fact that they use texting for communication and back it up with email and phone calls makes the process of dealing with the office so much easier. Highly recommended.

    I saw Dr Durkot at this office. I would highly recommend her for a quick, painless experience. She made me feel me very comfortable and was done in no time. I liked the fact that she let me know step by step what she was doing, and what was coming up next.

    They are very detailed and very expensive. They did a bunch of x-rays and didn't even clean my teeth. Taking the pictures took a whole hour. Spent the better half of my appointment taking my blood pressure. It was frustrating because i basically PAID $60 just to take pictures of my teeth

    I had a good appointment at Dr. Tupman Dentistry. I made the appointment for a night guard replacement, and Dr. Tupman thoroughly explained to me the process of getting a night guard with their office and made sure that it was what I wanted. I will make Dr. Tupman my regular dentist from now on.
