As such, the doctors at our Jacksonville, Morehead City, and Havelock, NC offices are able to provide every patient with the comprehensive, high quality treatment they deserve.

What is an ABO Certified Orthodontist?

There are many steps doctors must go through in order to become licensed orthodontists. They complete a graduate program in dentistry, thus earning a DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) or DMD (Doctor of Dental Medicine) degree. Additionally, they must fulfill a 2 – 3 year residency program at a CODA-accredited orthodontic program that trains them specifically in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics. 
Past that, in order to become certified with the ABO, orthodontists must undergo hundreds of additional hours of training and examination that sharpens their orthodontic judgment, skills, knowledge, and patient care tactics.  Additionally, the orthodontist must demonstrate the ability to provide the highest quality functional and esthetic results.  This certification is attained by fewer than 30% of all orthodontists in the country and Coastal Carolina Orthodontics has the only board certified orthodontists in Carteret, Craven, and Onslow Counties.
