Partners in Education

Together… we can make a difference!

Since our practice stared in 1968, Coastal Carolina Orthodontics (the Smilemakers) has enjoyed providing exceptional orthodontic care while also giving back to the community that it serves. Through many volunteer hours educating children on proper oral hygiene, sponsorship of hundreds of local organizations (sports teams, school bands, etc.), and student mentoring over the last 45 plus years we are always looking for opportunities to make our community better.

With this strong desire to give back, Coastal Carolina Orthodontics is excited to start their third year of the highly successful Partners in Education program which started September 2012. In an unprecedented effort to contribute to Onslow, Craven and Carteret County Schools and invest in the future leaders of our country, Coastal Carolina Orthodontics will donate $50.00 directly to the school of every student patient that begins full orthodontic treatment. Our offices, since inception of the program have donated $97,000 to Onslow, Craven and Carteret County Schools! Our hope is to be able to continue to give more during the 2014-2015 school year and eventually to reach our goal of donating over $250,000 to our schools.

Over the past several years the tough economic times have led to tremendous budget cuts in our schools and we are hopeful that through this program we will be able to help offset some of these cuts. We are blessed to have many precious resources, but none are as valuable as our children, and much of their success is dependent on education.

Together, we can make a difference!
