Dr. Douglas and Dr. Gerry Ahrens are a father-son orthodontic team who offer family-friendly orthodontic treatments in a comfortable and welcoming environment. Dr. Douglas Ahrens has provided more than 25 years of caring service to children, teens, and adults in the Louisville community. His son, Dr. Gerry brings extensive knowledge of the latest in orthodontic procedures and technology.

We are a Preferred Provider of The Invisalign® system, a series of clear aligners used to straighten teeth. The Invisalign® aligners are made after we take impressions of your teeth and send them to a lab. The lab makes the Invisalign® aligners especially for you using computerized technology. After a couple of weeks, the clear aligners arrive at our office and the first set of aligners are tried on your teeth.

Dr. Douglas Ahrens is a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontists. He has completed all three phases of the American Board of Orthodontics board certification examination. The three phases are: 1) required education, 2) written examination and 3) oral examination involving case presentations. The preparation for this examination takes years and it is a prestigious accomplishment.
