Welcome to Our Practice

Welcome to the orthodontic office of Dr. Pamela Hanson, Dr. Michael Payne, and Dr. Michael Melugin!

We strive to serve our patients and to provide professional, quality, patient-centered orthodontic care with a personal and friendly touch. We encourage patients to be actively involved in their treatment and strive to improve their self-esteem and quality of life.

All of the doctors in our practice completed their orthodontic specialty training at Marquette University. In order to provide the best possible treatment for our patients, we offer the most recent advances in orthodontic treatment. In addition to conventional metal braces, we also offer more esthetic options including ceramic (tooth-colored) braces and brace-less (Invisalign) options.

We have 2 convenient locations in New Berlin and Brookfield/Waukesha with both early morning and evening hours available to provide exceptional service to our patients. These locations provide easy access for patients from many of the western Milwaukee suburbs, including Brookfield, New Berlin, Waukesha, Pewaukee, Muskego, West Allis, Hales Corners, Lake Country, Delafield, Sussex, Wauwatosa, and many more!

We look forward to you joining the PHM Orthodontists' family!
