Dr. Ara Nazarian, DDS

Dr. Nazarian has been providing general dentistry services and his more creative uses of modern, cutting-edge technologies to patients in Birmingham, Detroit Metro, Bloomfield, Sterling Heights, Dearborn, Bloomfield Hills and Dearborn Heights in addition to his local Troy area patients for over 20 years.

His development of proprietary techniques and service delivery methods using standard and custom made dental products have particularly become popular with young adults and older adults seeking cosmetic, reconstructive and orthodontic dentistry that seem to break through common expectations.


Dr. Nazarian has been named a 2018 Leader in Continuing Education. 


Dr. Nazarian’s Rapid Ortho Treatments are now becoming popular with patients from Ohio, Illinois and Indiana, especially for young adults and older adults who need traditional metal braces (powerful), but don’t want to wear them for 2 to 3 years.

With his more recent success in adapting popular veneer products to his orthodontic procedures he has been able to create Hollywood style good looks without the usual “wait and see” process of regular orthodontic braces followed up with more cosmetic dentistry.

Our Flipper-less Flipper was also made popular in this area by Dr. Nazarian. Using standard products and a little creative know how, he created a cosmetic alternative to the dreaded denture flipper that is commonly required for creating temporary replacements for teeth.

Dr. Nazarian’s proprietary flipper appliance does NOT have to be removed while eating and provides the best environment for tissue healing.

Our patients enjoy having the capability of bending the rules of: how dramatic a cosmetic result can be (our patients define what they want), how convenient treatments are structured to require the least amount of time lost from work and finally, knowing that treatment dollars are not wasted when patients are focused on a gradual upgrade path of treatments that, in today’s times, many people think are not possible.
