Rocky Lupardus, D.M.D.
Dr. Rocky was born and raised in Granite City, Illinois. He received his Bachelors degree in Food Science at the University of Illinois in 1983. From there he attended Dental School at Oral Roberts University in Tulsa, Oklahoma (where he met and married his wife) until the school was closed and then transferred to Southern Illinois University School of Dental Medicine in Alton, Illinois where he obtained his D.M.D. degree in 1987.
He then spent a year in a General Practice Residency Program in the U.S. Army at Fort Jackson, S.C. From there he was a dentist in Munich, Germany for three years, then on to Fort Sam Houston in San Antonio, Texas, then Fort Sheridan, Illinois for a year, and another year in Fort Leonard Wood, Missouri. He left active duty as a Major in 1993 and remained in the reserves for another two years.
After leaving the military, Dr. Rocky wanted to bring his family back close to home and found a great community to live and work in. In 1993 he took over the dental practice of Dr. Mario Conte on Central Avenue in Eureka, Missouri. Over the years the practice outgrew that location and in 2001, the present modern office building was completed with the latest dental equipment and technology. The practice continues to grow with satisfied patient’s word-of-mouth referrals.
Dr. Rocky earned the Fellowship Award in the Academy of General Dentistry (F.A.G.D.) and has taken hundreds of hours of continuing education in dentistry. He is also a member of the American Dental Association and the Christian Dental Society.
Dr. Rocky resides in Eureka, Missouri with his wife, Christine. Two of their children, Ryan and Amanda, live in the St Louis area. His oldest daughter, Brittany is married to Kris Klinkerman and currently resides in the St. Louis area with their 2 young boys, Wyatt and Remy.
Dr. Rocky has been on mission trips to Haiti and Jamaica.
In his spare time he loves photography, travel, riding his motorcyle and spending time with his grandsons!
