Smile and Shine With Lux

Your smile is where your soul shines through. Lux Orthodontics was named after the Latin word for ‘light’, as we aim to shed light on the endless possibilities in the journey of an orthodontic patient. We believe every smile is unique, with its own history.


Our specialized orthodontic plans seek to give you the best and brightest smile, no matter where life takes you.

Community Involvement

Oral health and hygiene, which relate to orthodontic and general health, are a concern for all, regardless of financial status. Research has shown poor oral health can lead to further complications, including tooth pain, tooth loss, and even heart disease.


We are proud to provide subsidized orthodontic treatments for our underserved community members, helping them confidently stand out with treatments that would normally be out of reach.
