Our number one priority is to provide treatment in an office that makes you feel comfortable and welcome.
Oftentimes, a young child’s mouth doesn’t grow proportionately with the rest of their skull. This means that when adult teeth are ready to erupt, there may not be enough space for them, or they may not erupt in the right place.
The American Association of Orthodontists recommends your child’s first visit to the orthodontist take place by age seven...Read more
The teenage years are an ideal time to undergo comprehensive orthodontic treatment because most (if not all) of the adult teeth have erupted. The jaw is incredibly responsive to movement, which means treatment can be completed in a shorter amount of time compared to if they had the same treatment as an adult. Not treating your teen may increase the risk of grinding, breaking/chipping of the teeth, jaw issues, and chronic headaches as they get older...Read more

I started my ortho journey with Dr. A & Team over 2 years ago and every experience has been great. Not always an easy process and needless to say I’m not always the most patient, but I always trusted Dr. A and believed in the journey. She has been amazing and the location + parking makes the experience very convenient. Thanks Dr. A, Kelsey & Team!
Dr. Arruda is an outstanding orthodontist and did a great job with our daughter's smile. Would highly recommend her! Great bedside manner, super smart, and a talented perfectionist when it comes to great smiles!
I'm giving Dr. Aruda and her staff 5 stars for excellent patient care. Kelsey was understanding and flexible with my busy work schedule and 1 hour commute to the office and made it easy for me to schedule appointments and any changes I may have needed. I'm a dental hygienist so I was VERY particular with my end results. Dr. Aruda continued to adjust my braces until I was completely happy with my smile. I recommend West Loop Orthodontics to anyone looking to change their smile for the better while getting excellent patient care and beautiful/healthy results in a timely manner.
Absolutely love Dr. Arruda and her team! Excellent orthodontist and also really wonderful with kiddos! So happy to have found West Loop Orthodontics - highly recommend it!
I'm so impressed by this practice! The clinic is beautiful, clean, and spacious, and they use the most advanced technology I've seen in a healthcare practice. Everyone who works here is incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, and I really appreciate never feeling rushed. They're patient with questions and provide thorough explanations for everything they do. Dr. Arruda's expertise is obvious, and I feel very confident in her skills.
My Consultation went great. I am confident that Kelsey and Dr Arruda will invest the time and energy to understand your unique situation. 5 stars all around. To my initial consultation: Dr Arruda was generous with her time: she provided me a comprehensive, and holistic overview of my tentative orthodontic treatment plan. More importantly she also shared her particular reasons for recommending my given treatment.
