Giving our Community Something to Smile About

50 Years and 50,000 Smiles

For 50 years, our team of  American Board of Orthodontics (ABO) Board Certified Orthodontists have been committed to the families of Eastern North Carolina. In 1968, Dr. Alex Willis opened the first Smile Makers at Coastal Carolina Orthodontics office in Jacksonville, NC. Over the next several years, Dr. Richard Vanek and Raymond Ball joined the flourishing practice, opening new locations in Morehead City and Havelock, NC. In 1995, Dr. Todd Fischer joined the Smile Makers team, followed by Dr. BJ Richards and Dr. David Walker. While Drs. Fischer, Richards, and Walker primarily run the practice today, Dr. Ball and Dr. Willis can still be found treating patients throughout the week, including on what is fondly known as “Willis Wednesdays.” The team offers a unique approach to orthodontics. Our doctors often discuss and collaborate on cases, ensuring you or your child has the best in orthodontic care.

Not only do we believe in coordinated care, but we value community and family as well. Our friendly office staff is often found at local events and activities sponsored by our office, including kid’s running races, high school football games, local triathlons for teens, and other events focused on health and wellness. Whether you’re interested in braces, Invisalign, early orthodontic care, or a free consultation, we hope to have the opportunity to give you or your child a smile you’ve always dreamed of.

Smile Makers

Speed Braces

Incredibly small and ultra-hygienic, Speed Braces are the most common type of orthodontic treatment our patients choose.


Invisalign provides a comfortable, virtually undetectable way to work towards a straighter, and a more confident smile.

Speedy Smiles

Looking for a perfect smile in record time? Ask us about treatment options that reduce your time in braces often to as little as 6 to 9 months.

Clear Braces

A variation on conventional braces that provide a far less noticeable method of treatment.
