About LouAnn B. Van Liew
“Big men get to be big men by doing the things they don’t want to do.” Those words from Dr. LouAnn VanLiew’s father still inspire her today. “They often come to mind when I’m attending an educational seminar on a beautiful sunny day,” she says. “But it doesn’t take long for me to become absorbed in the new information and technology. I’m always excited to bring back what I learn to help my patients.”
In addition to providing all phases of general dentistry, including veneers, Invisalign®, and Botox® for temporomandibular (TMJ) disorders, Dr. VanLiew also offers Juvéderm® for lip symmetry and enhancement. “When I create beautiful smiles, I’m also able to create beautiful frames for those smiles,” she says. She has incorporated advanced state-of-the-art technology into her practice, including Tekscan™ and EMG (electromyography), which analyze a patient’s bite and muscle activity, to treat TMJ and facial pain. “This has helped to achieve life-changing results for many patients who suffer from TMJ pain and have previously tried other methods without relief,” she says.
Knowing that her work can affect the whole-body health of her patients, Dr. VanLiew remains committed to elevating her education, knowledge, and technology to ensure every patient is provided with the very best care. She continues to advance her skills by working with world-renowned dentists and specialists across the country. As she likes to say, “Balance plus function, along with exceptional dentistry, is what contributes to your whole body health. Never underestimate the power of your smile!”
