Welcome to Sanborn Orthodontics!


At Sanborn Orthodontics, we love helping people of all ages create amazingly confident smiles. Dr. Robert C. Sanborn and his team are passionate about orthodontics and the changes it brings about in the lives of our patients. We know your smile needs are as unique as you are, so we deliver personalized care based on your story. 

Our commitment is to be the best part of each patient’s day, while offering a customer experience that’s better than any our patients have ever had — not just at a dental office. We work hard to make your experience amazing, by treating people right and doing great work! The proof is in the smiles we’ve helped create and the lives we’ve helped change. Orthodontics shouldn’t be complicated or confusing, so Dr. Sanborn and his team have worked hard to make it simple and straightforward.

Dr. Sanborn is known for his artistry and ability to customize each smile to bring out the very best in each patient’s face. In addition, Dr. Sanborn will see you at every visit, and he is proud to be on the cutting edge of technology for adolescent and adult orthodontics.

We offer the newest customized smile services:

At Sanborn Orthodontics, you are the star. We love getting to know you as a patient and look forward to sharing a positive, life-changing experience with your orthodontic care. Our patients choose our practice because they trust that they will receive the most comfortable, honest, state-of-the-art treatments from a doctor and staff who genuinely care. Not all orthodontic offices are the same. Most are, but we aren’t! We believe your experience should be something special. We offer complimentary consultations, including a clinical exam by Dr. Sanborn, at our Morehead City, NC orthodontic office.  We are now offering Express Adult Consults in Jacksonville, NC.  Call our office for more information. We can’t wait to meet you and help get your story started!
