This is our 3rd child who has gone through their orthodontia treatments with Gluck Orthodontics and we could not be happier. The entire team is so pleasant, knowledgeable and professional every time we visit. My boys that have completed treatment have the best smiles and my 3rd son’s teeth are looking better everyday. Again, we could not be happier!

Every element of my experience with Gluck Orthodontics was outstanding! The staff is very welcoming and made me comfortable along every step of the Invisalign process. Every visit, I was greeted by the receptionists by name as soon as I walked in the office door. The billing department put me completely at ease. The orthodontist assistants were very professional and fun to talk to. They always told me exactly what they were doing so that I knew what to expect. And Dr. Gluck and Dr. Jonathan were great – I could tell they were experts and that I could fully trust them (they’ve won awards for their work!). Everyone always knew me by my name. I could tell that they truly cared about me as a patient. When I started and finished my treatment, they even put my name on a sign next to the door (see picture). Beyond the people, the facility is very nice. The office is modern and clean. There are always festive decorations. There is a toothbrushing station to prepare you for your visit. The equipment is state of the art. I was provided with plenty of dental resources (pre-packaged pre-pasted toothbrushes, wax, other Invisalign care items). There is free coffee/tea when you walk in, and I always enjoyed the free ice cream at the end of each appointment! I highly recommend Gluck Orthodontics! And if you’re worried about costs, I did get a consultation/estimate from one other office nearby. For Invisalign, prices were comparable, but my first appointment/consultation at Gluck blew the other out of the water. I was certainly getting more bang for my buck with Gluck!

At my age (60+), I was hesitant about going to an orthodontist with thoughts of feeling out of place in a world made for youthful patients – I couldn’t have been more wrong! From my first moment walking through the front door, I was greeted with a warm welcome and friendly smile each and every single visit – thank you, Karilyn and the front office staff! And it did not matter which orthodontic assistant I visited because every one of them was kind, friendly and always happy to take care of me! Over the past two year, I have always been made to feel welcome by each and every staff member no matter my question or concern. And Dr. G and Jono were just amazing! Who would have thought that going to an orthodontist would be such a pleasant experience that I would look forward to!

What a great place!! I love how valued I feel at Gluck Orthodontics. The staff live and breathe customer service and you can feel that with every step you take. In addition to the amazing customer service, Gluck Orthodontics does a phenomenal job of giving you the smile you’ve always wanted. I am currently an adult Invisalign patient and am having Orthodontic treatment for the first time at almost 30. I feel like I waited my whole life for this and my experience has been so much better than I ever imagined it could be. I am so excited to continue my journey with Gluck Orthodontics and I cannot wait to share my experience with anyone looking for an Orthodontist!

10/10 satisfaction with my Invisalign experience at Gluck! They have the friendliest staff that made the process go as smooth as possible. They let me come in whenever I needed for questions/concerns and always made me feel so comfortable. And most importantly, my teeth are perfect now. I would recommend to anyone!

Samantha W. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


My daughter Sarita was thrilled today with her new look after Invisalign! Dr. Gluck was so personable and sweet to her the entire process. I’ve never seen such an amazing staff, so friendly and attentive to the patients. My daughter was really impressed with Dr. Gluck and Meghan. They really made her feel like a queen and extremely comfortable with the entire experience!

Josie H. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


I had a really great experience at Gluck Orthodontics. I had some very minor stuff that I didn’t like about my smile. Dr. Gluck recommended Invisalign as the best option for my needs. The entire process was seamless and simple. I had the Invisalign for 9 months and am so happy with the results. The entire staff is delightful to be around. I would highly recommend them.

I had an amazing experience with Gluck Orthodontics! I actually looked forward to my appointments for my Invisalign treatment because every single staff member was SO friendly, including the doctors! I am very happy with how my teeth turned out after my Invisalign. I developed an open bite and they were able to fix this within a year and my smile totally transformed. Definitely recommend this place to everyone!! Great people, great staff.

The office of Gluck Orthodontics is the best run office I have ever been to in my l life. They run on time, the staff is uniformly cheerful and polite, and the service is impeccable. Everyone seems extremely knowledgeable, they function as a team, and communication is excellent. My personal experience was with the Invisalign product. I got an unimaginably great result which I truly did not think was possible before going to them. Invisalign is a total game changer, and Gluck Orthodontics are absolute experts in its use.

Cindy S. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


Gluck Orthodontics is a great practice. The staff are always warm and friendly and do all they can to ensure my child’s comfort. They go above and beyond and exude professionalism, high quality service, flexibility, and customer satisfaction. Their office staff worked with me to utilize my insurance and flexible spending care account so affordability was not so daunting. Going to their office is always a pleasure! They have the most clever marketing; they have the cutest take home goodies (thermal color changing pencils, clever reminder cards, etc). My daughter loves those pencils as well as the office contests they usually have going on that engage the kids. Over the past couple of years, we have grown to know the staff and I must say..they are all great with my teenager. They have such amazing and friendly staff! Additionally, the gourmet coffee maker/station, free wifi, and a charging station for your phone are a few things I personally love about their office. I have literally powered up my laptop and worked in their office while waiting for my daughter to finish her appointment. What do these people not think of? I highly recommend Gluck Orthodontics!!

Steve S. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


I am an adult who learned from my dentist that I needed to see an orthodontist. Dr. Gluck had done the orthodontics for my children so I went to him. I was amazed at the level of professionalism in his office. From the first visit I felt like Dr. Gluck and his highly capable staff wanted the very best for me. To this day when I walk into the office everyone on staff knows my name and greets me with a smile and a friendly greeting. I simply don’t like going to a doctor’s appointment but I love going to see Dr. Gluck. Of course, the proof of his expertise is in the results. My problems seemed insurmountable to me but Dr. Gluck took one look at me and told me that he’d get my teeth better than they had ever been. I was so surprised that in about 18 months he had corrected the problems. I continued to see him for about three years because he wanted to do follow up work and make some detailed corrections that only an orthodontist could see. He went way beyond the norm to take care of my teeth. I cannot recommend him highly enough. And I can say that if you visit his office even once you’ll fall in love with his staff and the hospitality they show to every person that walks in. Dr. Gluck is one of a kind. I am not embarrassed to smile and show my front teeth now because they look straighter than they’ve ever looked in my life. He’s the best.

I’ve had only excellent experiences at Dr. Gluck’s office! Everyone there is so friendly, expert, and thoughtful that I always forget how much I supposedly hate orthodontist appointments! 🙂 I hadn’t had an appointment in almost five years before going in recently for a new retainer, and it felt like I’d never left. Their COVID measures feel safe and effective as well. I would recommend Gluck Orthodontics to absolutely anyone!

Ellen D. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Gluck and his staff are the BEST! All of my family members and many of my classmates went to Dr. Gluck and I have never heard anything bad about Gluck Orthodontics. You will be sure to leave with a great smile and the whole process of having braces is a breeze with Dr. Gluck! I definitely recommend him to anyone in need of orthodontic treatment

Shayna E. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Gluck for years and it is the best! The service is amazing, the staff is so nice, and Dr. Gluck always makes me smile! I enjoy and look forward to my appointments and I would definitely recommend anyone there. He is the best and my experiences there have been so fun and enjoyable! /i would never think of going anywhere else! Thanks so much! If anyone is looking for any kind of orthodontic or dental work you will not regret going to Dr. Gluck, it is the best! I really could not be happier!

Natalie C. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


I am likely one of Dr. Gluck’s more complicated adult patients, having dealt with a lot of teeth issues throughout my life. Most recently it was discovered that I needed to have braces to adjust my bite prior to getting a final crown placed. Fortunately, I was able to go the Invisalign route. Dr. Gluck is sensitive to his patients’ needs and understands the adult patient’s desire to undergo orthodontia in the most aesthetic manner possible. Furthermore, as a now out-of-town patient, Dr. Gluck and his office make an above and beyond effort to schedule my appointments at times convenient to me. Strongly recommended!

Alicia B. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


I have never felt so welcomed or appreciated by a business or doctor’s office. They make you part of their family–I’ve even met their stunning and very sweet wives. Dr. Gluck, his son, Dr. JonO, Cindy–the whole crew, have always made me leave there with a smile (no pun intended). They always know my name when I come in, I’ve received thank you notes, they’re always complimentary of my fashion choices (which was a boost of confidence when I was going through a very nasty divorce), and they’ve even played the part as my therapist–lol! I had braces as a teen, but crowding happened after wisdom teeth came in; and as an adult, I thought it would be awkward going back to an orthodontics’ office, but they made me very comfortable. Now, my teeth are beautiful again, and I get compliments all the time on how beautiful and straight my teeth are; I owe it all to Gluck Orthodontics. This place is full of positive vibes and now my teeth are beautiful again. I don’t have children; but when I do, they will be going there for their orthodontic needs. They’ve earned a lifetime customer and advocate right here. Thank you for being so good to me.

Leslie B. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


Dr Gluck is amazing!  Professional A+ staff. My son loves going and I love going too!  They are so accommodating and offer the best orthodontics. As a child I went through what seemed like torture at other places, but my 10 year old son has loved his treatment. Many thanks to Dr Gluck and his staff!  The ice cream treats are my son’s favorite!  His teeth after the Herbst appliance look amazing!!!  Think you Dr Gluck for giving him a beautiful smile for life! Highly recommend Dr Gluck!!!!!!!!

Two years ago, I went into Dr. Gluck’s office to get Invisalign to make room for implants. From the first day I was there till I completed whole process, their friendliness, patience, professionalism really impressed me. I want to particularly thanks to Ashley, Cindy, and Dr. Jono. Now, not only am I able to do implants; also, all my friends commented on my teeth look nice.

I STRONGLY recommend Gluck Orthodontics to anyone needing this service. They are efficient and conscientious of their patient’s needs and time. Results are always beautiful and what is best for the patient…you will be in capable, skilled hands if you choose Gluck Orthodontics. And now on a more personal level…I want to thank Gluck Orthodontics and ALL staff members for your kindness and professionalism throughout both of my children’s treatments. Every single visit was fun; I really appreciate the attention to detail and the resulting beautifully straightened teeth. I’m a little sad that our time together is done, but from time to time we will see you again for retainer maintenance?

D C. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to Dr. Gluck by my dentist due to my bite changing and causing issues. I was a regular at the office for almost 2 years during the time I used Invisalign to correct my bite.  The office surroundings are clever and creative in design. There is a movie room for children, a coffee station for adults. The Front desk is friendly and efficient.  Every single Orthodontic assistant was professional and courteous and very friendly.  There is one staff member that was exceptional.  Her name is Cindy and she often greeted me and also made my retainers.  She really went out of her way to make me feel welcome.  Just a sweetie.  Dr. Gluck is such a people person!  Not only does he have a perfectionistic eye for creating great smiles, he elicits them as well!!  It is never a chore to go to an appt there-I thoroughly enjoy everyone there.  My teeth have never functioned or looked better!

We love Gluck orthodontists. Where else can you go get your smile fixed and get ice cream at each visit? Dr. Glucks office of course!! My family and I have been patients of Dr. Gluck’s for 10 years now and we love going!! We love the phone staff, they are so friendly and make you feel like you are so important and special. It is so easy to make and change appointments. Call now. Dr. Gluck and Dr. Johno’s assistants are so pleasant and have a fantastic bed side manner. I have 5 kids who have seen Gluck for expanders and braces. We look forward to our visits because the staff treats us like family. They are interested in us personally and take as much time as needed to spend with us, we are not just a number with a certain time limit! I used Gluck for invisalign and got great results! They made it so easy to use and gave great instructions. I had braces as a child but my teeth and jaw shifted as I got older. Invisalign changed my jaw and my smile for the better! not only do we love our visits because we get ice cream after each one but we also love the day we get our braces on and off. The day we get our braces on we get a personal phone later in the day from Dr. Gluck or Dr. Johno personally asking how our patient is tolerating the braces……how many other orthodontists take the time to call you personally? I love that feature. We also love the day we get braces off because we get to take a silly picture with Dr. Gluck to show off our new smile and we get to pick his accessories for the picture. Since we have girls we always put him in bright pink hats and boas!!! He looks great! They are such a family friendly office and I can’t imagine going anywhere else. Call now for your consultation 615-269-5903!!! You will not regret it!!!

I can’t say enough wonderful things about Dr. G, Dr. Jono and staff. My daughter actually looks forward to going to the orthodontist! We visited 3 different Orthodontists in Nashville before choosing Gluck Ortho. We felt that the Gluck treatment plan approach made the most sense, and we felt the most comfortable in their office. They looked at my child as a whole, and offered the right balance of preventative and active care. The assistants explain everything that they are doing, and have so much patients with my 8 year old. The doctors are knowledgeable, fair and FUN, but most importantly, they have gained my trust. We are made to feel welcome and appreciated, and they keep us in the loop with my daughter’s progress. We recommend Gluck Orthodontics to all of our friends!

Three of our four children have needed braces over the years — We’ve used Gluck Orthodontics every time and couldn’t have been more pleased with the experience and the results. The orthodontists and staff have always been friendly, trustworthy, professional, and responsive to our needs — there’s not a bad apple in the bunch — and on the one occasion when my son’s wire came loose on a Friday night and was causing him discomfort, Dr. Gluck not only called us back right away, but gave us directions to his home and fixed the problem that night in his dining room! There’s no doubt in my mind Gluck Orthodontics is the best in town.

I had a phenomenal experience at Gluck Orthodontics. Every single provider and member of the staff treated me like family and was warm and welcoming. Not only was the final product fantastic, but also, the process of getting there was as well. It was because of Dr. Gluck and his staff’s willingness to accommodate my busy schedule and find ways to see me regardless of unforeseen cancellations that I got the smile of my dreams. I’d highly recommend Gluck Orthodontics if you are seeking compassionate, charismatic and competent care.

Nicole R. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Gluck and Dr. JonO Gluck are awesome. I was recommended by family friends and also by my orthodontist back in Arizona and they did not disappoint. I appreciate how they have made my smile the best it has ever been and I love how honest and upfront they have been, it really makes you be able to trust them. I would recommend them as the best orthodontists in Nashville and am so glad that even far away from home I can still get the continued care for my teeth that I need. If you are looking the Gluck’s are THE BEST! PS they have ice cream for all patients which I thought was such a good idea and sooo good!

Julie T. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


We absolutely love Dr Gluck and his staff! The moment you walk in the front desk is so kind with you and your child. The orthodontist and his staff do such a beautiful job on my child’s mouth and are so sweet with her! When she’s all done they let her choose from a bunch of different types of Popsicles and ice cream and even have a pain reliever if you’re not going right home and your child’s mouth is sore! I could not ask for a better place to take care of my child and her mouth. We came in with a crooked overcrowded mouth and her teeth are now straight and beautiful! I don’t think we’ve ever been anywhere that is so friendly and kind with us!

I had braces as a teenager, lost my nightly retainer during college and went to Gluck to get a new one. I am very impressed. The service I received was quick, organized and smooth. The entire team at Gluck Orthodontics are wonderful. The receptionists made me feel welcomed and at home (they even showed me how to make coffee using their fancy coffee machine!) and the dental assistants were thorough and courteous. Dr. Gluck is professional, yet entirely personable and approachable. I don’t really know any other way to put it than I felt like “family.” If I were to open a practice, this is the model I would strive for. Nothing but great things to say about these folks.

CJ B. from Mt Juliet, TN (Source: Yelp)


I’m picky. I admit it. Especially when it comes to someone who’s caring for my kids, and whose skills and experience will have a significant impact on their appearance and well-being. Never having had braces myself, I did lots of reading and even interviewed a couple of other orthodontists who had been recommended to me before deciding to partner with Gluck Orthodontics to correct my sons’ smiles. It is a partnership — respectful, thoughtful, patient staff members work with an outstanding leader who cultivates a fun atmosphere. Braces? Fun? That’s right…they work hard to make what can be a very trying time — better. Not merely with externals like games and prizes, but throughout the experience with understanding and follow-up. Most importantly, Dr. Joel Gluck knows what he’s doing. “Best practices”, “evidence-based practice” are current buzzwords in healthcare, but in this office you see them artfully combined with people skills and genuine concern for each individual. Dr. Gluck knows what works (and what works best), and he has an expert craftsman’s eye for detail and nuance. And since it’s my precious boys’ faces….I’m delighted to have found Middle Tennessee’s best orthodontist.

I have had a fantastic experience dealing with Gluck Orthodontics. I have never felt more welcome at a place of business before. The entire staff is well trained in the practice of customer service. They look up and acknowledge you when you walk through the door and call you by name with a smile. They truly exceed expectations and set the bar when it comes to customer service and professionalism. Their expert services were effectively delivered as promised. I will gladly refer anyone I know to Dr. Joel and Dr. Jono’s family business in the future!

I recently completed a one-year Invisalign process with the Gluck team. My bite and smile have vastly improved and I “fixed” a problem that has bothered me for more than sixty years. Yes, you read me right, I began treatment at age 76 and am very pleased with both the outcome and the friendly, personal approach taken by Drs. Gluck and everyone who works in the office. Invisalign is not just for the young! Thanks to Gluck Orthodontics I am entering what some call the “Golden Years” (perhaps brass, copper, or at best silver!) with the smile I’ve wanted for decades. Thanks to all at Gluck! Bill

Andrew C. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


I got braces from Dr Gluck in high school and the result was fantastic.  My teeth have been straight ever since and I could not be happier that I chose him (I had a few friends who went to other orthodontists for their braces and ended up having to go to Dr Gluck to get them again because their teeth were not fixed the first time).  Since I had my braces removed, I have had to go back a few times to get my retainer fixed.  The service is excellent and Dr Gluck is a pleasure to be around every time.  If you are looking for braces or any other work done on your teeth in Nashville, I highly recommend Dr Gluck!

Sharon N. from Franklin, TN (Source: Yelp)


The BEST Orthodontist of Middle Tennessee! So when I say I had bad teeth, I had BAD teeth. They were crooked and coming from all directions… and to make things worse, I have really BIG teeth. My parents didn’t have a lot of money but I think the sight of my big whites had to be motivation enough because my Mother did months of research and decided that only the best orthodontist would do… even if we did have to drive 30 minutes for each visit. I wore braces under the guidance of Dr. Gluck for 2 years and over 15 years later, I have no doubt- my smile (which is now comprised of huge, beautiful, straight teeth) has been a huge part of my success and my personality. My smile has provided me with a sense of confidence that is paramount in business and success. Not a week goes by that I am not complimented about my teeth and for that I am forever thankful to Dr. Gluck. I joke with my Mom that because of his talent, my sister (who also became another success story 10 years later) and I will forever consider Dr. Gluck a rockstar. I am a very proud alumni of Gluck Orthodontics!

Katelyn B. from Sylvan Park, Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


I just completed one year of Invisalign with Dr. Gluck and highly recommend it! My dentist originally suggested veneers as the only option to move my midline (where your two front teeth meet) as mine was way off to a side. When I told her I wasn’t interested, she said that if anyone could fix it with Invisalign, it was Dr. Gluck. She was right! I am so pleased with my new smile. I enjoyed every visit to the office and my desires were heard and respected. I plan to take my daughter here when it is time for the braces conversation!

Keith Meacham (Source: Google)


The folks at Gluck Orthodontics have treated all three of our children over several years and we couldn’t be more thrilled with the results, the staff and the doctors. Walking into Gluck is a joy and they never try to force unnecessary treatment or treatment before the patient is ready. Can’t say enough wonderful things about the practice!

Lisa F. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


After having a consultation with a different orthodontist in town, I was recommended to Gluck Orthodontics and couldn’t be happier with my decision.  The entire experience has been nothing but positive! The staff is very accommodating and friendly.  I am an adult patient and was able to go the Invisalign route like I wanted, as Dr Gluck’s experience with Invisalign is very advanced.   I highly recommend going to Gluck Orthodontics.
