Our Story

Dr. Virginia Luks and Dr. Eric Luks

Dr. Eric Luks opened his orthodontic practice.


Dr. Virginia Luks, Dr. Eric Luks’ eldest daughter joined our practice. The doctors practiced side-by-side for a number of years working to develop consistent care between them for their patients. Much to their surprise this came very naturally despite their being separated by two generations and Dr. Eric Luks having studied at the University of Toronto and Dr. Virginia Luks in the United States. Their techniques and philosophies about patient’s treatment were seamlessly the same. We cannot say for sure but we think it’s in the genes!


Dr. Virginia Luks purchased the practice from her father, and became the principal practising orthodontist. Dr. Eric Luks continued to practise on a part-time basis, and after forty-five years in practice and over 10,000 patients treated, he retired in 2013.


Dr. Virginia Luks moved the practice from it’s long-term fifth floor office building location on the north-west corner of Yonge and Lawrence to it’s current elegant and state-of-the-art space, just steps away, a storefront location on Yonge Street just south of Lawrence. Here, we welcome patients of all ages, for exceptional orthodontic care in a calm, safe and service-oriented environment with all the latest technology.
Orthodontics… it’s all we do, and we’ve been doing it for over 50 years!

Why Luks

We are a family business that has been creating beautiful smiles in the Lawrence Park Neighbourhood for over 50 years…so we must be pretty decent if we’ve been in business this long right? We’ve treated 2nd, 3rd and 4th generations of families.

Both Dr. Virginia Luks and her father finished as firsts in their orthodontic graduate classes. Dr. Eric Luks was hometown trained at good old University of Toronto and Dr. Virginia Luks trained in the United States.

Dr. Virginia Luks was originally drawn to orthodontics not just because her Dad was super cool but because she appreciates that orthodontics is a unique vocation that combines science, engineering and art. Dr. Virginia Luks is very creative. She looks upon each patient in her practice as a canvas, one that at the completion of treatment she will sign her name to. She takes pride in completing each patient’s treatment to the highest standard, each one to be hung in the gallery amongst the over 10,000 cases completed at our practice, each to be critiqued by her peers, and admired by the masses.

At Luks Orthodontics, ethics is our middle name, we will commence no treatment before it’s time and we will not sell you any treatment that cannot be completed to better esthetics, function and stability than your pre-existing condition. We just wouldn’t be able to sleep at night !

We are experts in delivering efficient treatment times. We are constantly evolving to develop new and better treatment protocols. This is necessary because treatment is primarily doctor delivered- we’re serious! Our doctor's hands are expert at this craft….she does it better and faster than anyone could. You may not appreciate this difference only because you won’t know any different but trust us when we say…..this is a huge differentiating factor about our place! Dr. Luks doesn’t just point and delegate.

We are a low volume personal service-oriented practice…..for real! We are in the relationship business. We provide a safe and inviting treatment space where you will learn each of our teams’ names. Every day we are incorporating systems to deliver you everything you need. Need something special? Just ask us!
