Dr. Michelle Wittler established Wittler Orthodontics in June of 1998. The former chemist was always fascinated with the process of braces ever since wearing them as a teen. So when Dr. Wittler opened her practice her goal was to create more than just smiles. Her focus was on creating exceptional customer care, create a fun, relaxed atmosphere and engage in the community.
Dr. Wittler’s philosophy has remained the same from the beginning, to establish a practice where patients feel genuinely valued through her dedication to exceptional patient care ensuring that her team goes above and beyond what is expected.
“My team and I go out of our way to provide excellent orthodontic care in a fun and relaxed atmosphere,” Dr. Wittler says.
Wittler Orthodontics rewards their patients constantly. Taking good care of your braces and good report cards are rewarded with “Wittler Bucks” which can be spent on gift cards. If their patients bring in a cleaning card from their dentist, they are entered into a quarterly drawing for movie passes. Dr. Wittler believes that “this is a great way to promote good hygiene for their patients.”
The fun doesn’t stop there, for the second summer, they are hosting a patient appreciation event at the Monon Center Water Park in Carmel. Dr. Wittler rents out the park for one evening in the summer to enjoy, compete in friendly events and receive prizes. They will raffle off gift baskets with the proceeds benefitting Westfield Student Impact.
Serving the community of Westfield has been a critical part of what Dr. Wittler has created. She lives in the community, has raised her two sons in the community and has donated countless hours and resources to support Westfield.
“I live in a fantastic city and enjoy promoting the growth and vibrancy of this community,” Dr. Wittler says. “It is an honor to serve the Westfield community in many ways, from serving on the Westfield Education Foundation Board, supporting the Westfield Relay for life, Westfield, Rocks the 4th and Westfield in Lights.”
Wittler Orthodontics has also been honored to receive the Westfield Chamber of Commerce’s Lantern Award for Business of the Year in 2008 and 2016.
Dr. Wittler is grateful to be able to celebrate 20 years in business.
“I am fortunate my job allows me to interact with so many people and bring positive change to their lives,” she says. “Whether we are correcting a bite, which allows someone to chew their food normally, or straightening teeth into a beautiful smile.” At the end of the day, their desire is the same, to create a beautiful smile that improves self-confidence.
Dr. Wittler has the same passion that she did when she began her practice 20 years ago. She feels blessed to be surrounded by fun, caring and highly skilled staff. Most of all, she loves the patients who have made it possible to do the work that she loves.
“A healthy, beautiful smile is a gift for a lifetime, and I am blessed to have been able to help so many to achieve this,” she says.
