Meet Our Doctors

Dr. Crystal R Cox


I feel extremely blessed to be part of the orthodontic profession and absolutely love what I do. I enjoy having the opportunity to work with so many different people with varied backgrounds and interests. It’s exciting to get to know each patient personally, and see how they grow and change over the course of our time together.

A beautiful smile is truly life-changing and a major self-confidence booster. I love having the opportunity to be a part of creating that perfect smile for each one of our patients. The experience is very rewarding, both personally and professionally.

Personal Life

I grew up in Parkton, NC, and spent several years in Chapel Hill for school before making the move to Wilson two years ago. I quickly fell in love with the people and the town here and look forward to many more years to come. I have a wonderful extended family down in Fayetteville and great friends that I enjoy spending time with, but my adorable dog, Oreo, keeps me busy most of the time.

My personal interests include movies, kayaking, and line dancing with the awesome group at the Wilson YMCA. However, my biggest passions are traveling and music of all types. I played trombone in a variety of groups as an undergraduate at UNC and I'm still a hard core Tar Heel fan. I was lucky enough to be there for two national basketball championships and loved every minute of it!

Dr. Wong

I have a true passion for orthodontics and am thrilled to bring that with me to Signature Smiles Orthodontics. Self-confidence and self-love are two fundamental pillars of well-being that I hold very close to my heart. I love that my profession provides me with the ability to impact both, not only by creating beautiful smiles but also through the relationships I build with each and every one of my patients. I truly believe a smile can change the world.

Personal Life

I spent the majority of my life in Toronto, Ontario before moving to New York to complete schooling for orthodontics. As a child, growing up I wanted to be an actress and hip-hop dancer, but my passion for orthodontics has guided my path to being a part of the amazing community of Wilson. 

Outside of orthodontics, I find joy in connecting with those around me, traveling, being in nature, and spending time with friends. I am passionate about spirituality, dancing, and all forms of creative expression.
