Partners in Education

Since our practice began in 1968, the team at Coastal Carolina Orthodontics (the Smilemakers) has enjoyed providing exceptional orthodontic care to the Jacksonville, Morehead City, and Havelock, NC areas. In addition to providing services that strengthen the health and beauty of our patients’ smiles, we actively give back to our communities in other ways.

We are always looking to make our communities better. That is why for nearly 50 years we have dedicated our time and efforts to the good people of Jacksonville, Morehead City, and Havelock, NC. Some areas of service we regularly partake in include:

  • Donating volunteer hours to educate children on proper oral hygiene
  • Sponsoring hundreds of local organizations (sports teams, school bands, etc.)
  • Mentoring students of various ages

Investing in Our Future

With this strong desire to give back, Coastal Carolina Orthodontics is excited about our Partners in Education program, which started in September 2012.

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. Over the past several years, tough economic times have led to tremendous budget cuts in our schools and we are hopeful that through our Partners in Education program we will be able to help offset some of these cuts. As part of the program, 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 at our Jacksonville, Morehead City, or Havelock, NC office.

Since the inception of the Partners in Education program, we have donated $97,000 to Onslow, Craven, and Carteret County schools! Our hope is to be able to continue giving more and eventually reach our goal of donating over $250,000 to local schools

Together, we can make a difference!

Our students’ education is extremely important. Tell a friend or family member about our Partners in Education program and encourage students of any age to undergo their orthodontic treatment with Coastal Carolina Orthodontics so their treatment can make a difference in their education, in addition to their smiles. For more information on this great program, please contact our Jacksonville, Morehead City, or Havelock, NC office today!
