Dr. Cherubini's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Cherubini "Orthodontics is unique in the sense that I can develop a closer relationship with my patients and their family because of their time in treatment. I really feel blessed to have the opportunity to watch my patients’ personalities grow and develop as their smiles change. This is truly rewarding for everyone and we learn so much about each other. I come from a large family with four sisters! We enjoy getting together as often as we can, so I can spend time with my ten nieces and nephews! I also have a dog, Penny, and a newly rescued kitten named Cappuccina. One of my greatest passions is working with my hands, a skill I learned from my father. Carpentry and woodworking are among activities that occupy my free time. I am also a member of the Oak Island Hunting Club and the NRA. I live in Hampstead, and believe the future of our community is our children. As an Eagle Scout, I help my community by remaining actively involved with the Boy Scouts as a merit badge counselor and a Founding Advisor of Venture Crew 2789. I am also a mentor for senior high school students at Dixon and Topsail High Schools for career development and senior projects. I also provide externships for dental assisting students at Miller Motte and Cape Fear Community Colleges and sponsor athletic programs at Dixon and Topsail High Schools. I am an active member of St. Jude the Apostle and St. Mary Gate of Heaven churches. I help underserved children in rural North Carolina communities through the Smiles program and do mission work in Guatemala for Children of the Americas."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Cherubini "We design smiles for our patients that improve the way they look and feel. A healthy, beautiful smile, that fits your face will provide you the confidence you've always wanted. Because a beautiful smile is more than just straight teeth, we often use this analogy; "Would you trust your heart to anyone but a cardiologist?" Then why trust you smile to anyone but Dr Cherubini, an orthodontic specialist?

Dr. Cherubini and his staff possess the rare combination of being knowledgeable, professional, and likable all at the same time.

We take these reviews seriously and pride ourselves in a quality patient experience. We welcome the opportunity to discuss issues with patients and parents. We scheduled time for Lance to talk with Dr Cherubini. Dr Cherubini felt he left the discussion with a mutual understanding and positive rapport. Dr Cherubini felt he addressed all his concerns. This is a perplexing review based on that conversation and resolution agreement. We care about his daughter's and all our patients' care.

BEWARE This guy ripped me off big time. The girl at the front desk in the Leland office was ridiculously rude and completely unhelpful. We had brackets falling off like leaves in the fall. Seriously, stay away from this doctor. Do yourself a favor and really do your research before choosing your...more

It is difficult to reply to a review like this primarily due to the fact that it is anonymous. Dr Cherubini is a hands on provider and discusses serious issues with parents and patients alike. Our office policy for broken appliances (including brackets) is written into our initial contract and informed consent. In addition, we provide an educational video and a nice lamented care instruction card for use at home. Our assistants review the do's and dont's every time there is a broken bracket.
