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
We offer three distinct braces options: metal, clear, and Invisalign. Each have their own benefits, depending on what is most important to you. Whether it’s fast treatment time, less appointments, or less noticeability. The right option for you also depends on Dr. Arruda’s treatment plan and complexity of the caseRead more

I cannot rave enough about my experience at West Loop Orthodontics. I am thrilled with my outcome after having Invisalign for 2+ years my smile is finally perfect and I appreciate all the support and extra care the entire staff showed me. Highly recommend!
I'm very happy so far with my orthodontic treatment. I relocated to Chicago and I completed Invisalign prior to arriving to Chicago. Unfortunately my old retainer broke and I came to WLO for consultation. It was very thorough consultation and found I needed further treatment. I’m very happy with Dr. Desai and my treatment plan. After every appointment I’m scheduled for follow up appointments at the front desk and they always accommodate my preferred time. I’m very grateful for the whole team including Edith and Dr. Desai for helping bridge communication between myself and my oral surgeon. I don’t think I would get responses without them and I appreciate it.
Just finished my two year treatment with the West Loop Ortho- the doctors and staff were all so kind and communicated about the entire process- very happy with the end result! Would recommend to anyone looking to get that perfect smile.
Everyone in the office is friendly and polite. Every time I go there is always a wait because they are always super busy but I don't mind it because its well worth it Dr. Arruda, Dr. Desai and Staff are great at what they do. Thanks to them I have a great smile!
Great service! I'm very happy with the results. One dentist said I would need metal braces to correct my bite, West Loop gave me a second opinion and they were able to correct my bite with Invisalign. The process took about a year and a half, but the staff was very knowledgeable, accurate, quick, flexible and kind. I don't remember any pain or discomfort, the process was very easy and affordable. I highly recommend them and I have a beautiful smile that I am very happy with.
Dr. Arruda is an amazing and probably one of the best orthodontist you will find. Another dentist, who referred me to Dr. Arruda after telling me that I would be frustrated with Invisalign as it would not fix my bite, asked me if I had surgery to fix it when I went back for cleaning. Of course I did not have surgery, Dr. Arruda fixed my bite with expanders then put me on an Invisalign treatment plan & rubber bands to fix the rest of the mis-alignment & overcrowding. She sees imperfections that you don't see and won't give up until she has completely and perfectly fixed your teeth.
