Dr. Chapin started his career in dentistry as a high school co-op. He was very intrigued by the artistic and highly detailed work that is needed in all phases of dentistry. Dr. Chapin enrolled and graduated from Ferris State University in 1988 with an associate in applied science degree in dental laboratory technology. After graduation Dr. Chapin was hired by one of the largest dental labs in the state to help facilitate the fabrication of high quality dental restorations and to work closely with dentists to ensure proper fit, function and esthetics. In 1995 Dr. Chapin operated his own Dental Laboratory in West Bloomfield and worked side by side with local dentists to further develop the quality and comfort of dentistry.Dr. Chapin was accepted into the doctorate degree program at the University of Detroit Mercy in 1999. With his background in dental materials and all phases of dentistry he was nominated most likely to succeed by the faculty and his classmates. Since graduating in 2003 Dr. Chapin has attended many continuing education courses all over the United States and also donates time for charity work when possible. Dr. Chapin has two wonderful daughters that keep him busy. He also enjoys fly fishing out west, downhill and water skiing, traveling and many outdoor activities. Dr. Chapin’s brother, Andy, is the owner of a high quality Dental Laboratory in Linden, Michigan, where Dr. Chapin and his brother spend time constructing crowns, bridges, implants and making improvements in dentistry.

Patient Comments (1)
in Durand, MI |
Dr. Chapin is wonderful and his dental procedures are painless and well done. My entire family has been seeing him since he started and I have had extensive dental work. I have always enjoyed his office staff until the last change. His new staff is very rude, condescending and overall cranky which has caused me to switch dentists. I have heard many others in the community state that they are having the same issues and have also changed dentists. I have recommended him to many..NEVER again!
