Welcome to Willes Orthodontics in Carlsbad


As your friendly and dedicated orthodontic specialist in Carlsbad Village, we are here first and foremost to serve you and your family. Orthodontic treatment is about so much more than creating beautiful smiles; it’s about ensuring a lifetime of health, happiness, and self-esteem.

Dr. Michael Willes ​is a board-certified orthodontist, serving patients in Carlsbad, Oceanside, Vista, and Encinitas, CA, and will give you and your family the time and personal attention you deserve, and communicate clear and detailed explanations of all your treatment plans and options, from traditional braces to Invisalign® and Invisalign Teen® clear aligners, and In-Ovation® self-ligating braces. Dr. Willes is always happy to answer any question or take time to review treatment progress. His goal is to treat you the way he would treat his own family members.

Our team works very hard to create high-quality, low-stress, efficient treatment experiences in a warm, friendly environment. We love knowing that orthodontics really can change the lives of those in Coastal North County through improved self-esteem and long-term oral health.

Located just a few blocks from the beach and charming downtown Carlsbad, we love where we are and what we do. The whole team at Willes Orthodontics finds genuine joy in taking care of the best patients in the best place on earth!
