About LouAnn B. Van Liew

Dr. LouAnn Bufalo VanLiew has focused her cosmetic and general practice on taking care of patients, listening carefully to their concerns, and designing a plan to achieve their goal of a beautiful, healthy, functioning smile. She absolutely loves her job. “I cannot wait to get to work each day,” she says. “I have wonderful patients and an amazing team.”

Moving to a new, luxurious, state-of-the-art facility in Forked River has given her the opportunity to offer more exceptional services. “It’s larger, very modern, with the latest technology,” she says. “We are always striving to be the best for our patients, and we have gotten great support from them and our community.

In addition to providing all phases of general dentistry, including veneers and Invisalign® to rehabilitate dental function along with achieving gorgeous, lifelike cosmetic results, Dr. VanLiew also offers Juvéderm® and Botox® for lip symmetry and smile enhancement. She has incorporated advanced state-of-the-art technology into her practice, including Tekscan™, electromyography (EMG), and Jaw Tracker to analyze a patient’s bite and muscle activity. This technology addresses TMJ issues and fractured and worn teeth, helping to complete beautiful smiles. “When it comes to balancing a patient’s bite, I am the only disclusion time reduction therapy (DTR)– certified dentist in New Jersey,” she says. “A balanced bite is crucial for all dental treatment to achieve the most comfort and lasting results.”

Dr. VanLiew remains committed to incorporating new technology while continuing 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!”
