We are passionate about our work and dedicated to the total patient experience.


Wilmington Orthodontics offers comprehensive orthodontic care for children, teenagers, and adults. Orthodontics is a specialty of dentistry that corrects dental and jaw irregularities to improve oral health. Effective orthodontic treatment requires a group effort from patients, parents, your general dentist, and the Wilmington Orthodontics team!

Aligned teeth are more resistant to decay and gum disease because they are easier to clean. A balanced bite offers more efficient chewing and harmony between the teeth, facial muscles, and jaw joints. Additionally, the improved aesthetics of the jaw, lips, and face can have psychological benefits, including an improved self-image.

Wilmington Orthodontics delivers high-quality, personalized treatment in a friendly atmosphere by a highly skilled and experienced team. The foundation of our team is built on the respect and enthusiasm we have for each other, our patients, and our profession.

Dr. Rachel Perlitsh, owner and orthodontist, has over 20 years of experience creating beautiful smiles. She is committed to ensuring that patients understand their treatment and what is happening at each visit. Excellent communication skills and genuine caring for patients are also part of what makes Wilmington Orthodontics a special place.

What makes our practice unique? At Wilmington Orthodontics, we pride ourselves on bringing that commitment to excellence to work every day. We look forward to building a lasting relationship with you!
