Perceiving the symmetry of a face by the Orthodontist and understanding the perception from a Layperson point of view can enable to ensure an effective treatment outcome. It will also allow better understanding of the goals of treatment and execute it to the satisfaction of the individual undergoing Orthodontic treatment. Methods: Right and Left hemiface Photographs were made into composite photographs and evaluated by observers from different strata such as Orthodontists, Undergraduate BDS students and Laypersons. Each observer were made to complete a questionnaire and evaluation of their perception of 10 samples were done. Results: The Orthodontists could identify mild asymmetries present in the sample when compared to the Layperson. Also, the Left hemiface seemed to be more attractive than the right hemiface with all the observers. Conclusion: This study provided an indication that the inherent mild asymmetries present in the individual is not identified by the Lay person to the extent of identification by the Orthodontist or the UG student. this might be mostly because, perfect symmetry might appear slightly out of natural to the common population
