What Sets Us Apart

Unique Care for Your Unique Smile

You’re one of a kind, so you deserve an orthodontic treatment that’s customized to your unique needs and goals. Dr. Luciana Van Westen and team would love to be your partners in creating a new smile for you; one that’s healthy, beautiful, and filled with confidence.

You and your family are our top priority. Your comfort, clinical needs, and lifestyle concerns are important to us. We encourage your questions, and answer them fully, in easy-to-understand terms.

We want you to make informed decisions about your care: this is your smile, after all, and we want you to love it!


Free exams and initial records: Meet Dr. Van Westen, tour our office, and be presented with treatment options and costs before you make any major commitment and spend money out of pocket.

Early and late office hours and Saturday appointments

School Shuttle Service: I want to offer something different and something for YOU, as a busy parent. I am very proud to be introducing a School Shuttle Service for my patients! I hope this is a fantastic option for parents who are unable to come to every appointment.

Convenient location and free parking: we are located on Bluemound Road, in Elm Grove, across from Trader Joe’s and Target, between Wauwatosa and Brookfield. We are a few miles from Brookfield Square Mall, so all your major shopping is around us.

Stellar customer service: You will have a direct line to me after hours, and I want you to feel free to email any of your concerns directly to me. I also want to hear how we can make ourselves better, so you will be able to fill out Post-Appointment Surveys that are directly sent to my attention.

I hope all this and more will make you and your family love your experience at        Van Westen Orthodontics!

Comfortable Procedures and New Technology

I invested in a digital impression system by 3M True Definition Scanner. An impression of all your teeth can be made in minutes using an intraoral camera. The camera makes a movie of your teeth and it is immediately sent to a lab for your appliances. It increases efficiency and comfort.  I am sure your child and you will love this technology!

Safe Environment

We offer digital radiography and ultra-low radiation CBCT: the new standard of care for difficult/remarkable cases and surgical treatments by using the OP300 Maxio by Instrumentarium.

We also follow the most stringent sterilization standards, OSHA, HIPAA, and state and federal regulations.

Less Formality, More Personal Connection

I want you and your family to look forward to your visits. We have a fun environment with a team that loves what they do! You and your family will love our friendly staff. Our team is exceptional, and we work hard to educate you and your family so everyone can take an active role in establishing dental habits that promote a lifetime of healthy, Spectacular Smiles.

Aesthetic, Customized Treatment and Retainers

I am very proud to work with the very best aesthetic orthodontic products on the market, such as the amazing ceramic brackets by 3M APC Plus, Invisalign®, and fun-colored braces. I can also provide custom mouthguards that your children will want to wear, and you will be happy with the safety they bring.

At our office, you and your child will be able to choose aesthetic retainers they will enjoy wearing, such as clear retainers, glued-in retainers, or customized retainers that are made to last.

Patient-Centered Care

We’re a family-oriented, local small business. We’re not a corporate practice with an assembly-line approach to orthodontic care. Instead, we focus on personal connections and individual treatment plans, and provide a casual, welcoming atmosphere.

Schedule A Complimentary Consultation

Before committing to orthodontic treatment, it’s essential for you to know your care options. It’s just as essential that you choose a practice where you trust and like the doctor and team. We invite you to schedule a complimentary consultation at our Elm Grove, WI orthodontic office, which serves Brookfield, Wauwatosa, and Milwaukee.

Dr. Van Westen and team can’t wait to meet you. It will be our pleasure to create a healthy, confident smile just for you!
