My experience having adult braces from Dr. Wilson and team was Wonderful and left me with a smile I am proud of. His attention to detail and expertise is hard to find. I would highly recommend him anyone looking for a quality orthodontist that wants it done right the first time. His prices are extremely affordable for the latest technology in dental care. The office is creatively designed and the team is a close nit family that makes you feel welcomed and special every time.

I am a 42 year old woman that had braces when I was younger but my teeth started to shift a few years ago. I had heard that Dr Don was “the best” in Novato so I didn’t bother to check out the competition and went with a complete set of metal braces since I wanted to move things along quickly. I absolutely cannot find fault with anything that their office does. It’s very apparent that they take great strides to ensure that each patient receives the highest quality of care and attention. I am thrilled with the results and am receiving compliments on my *perfect* teeth daily. I’m so happy that I went to “the best” guy in town. Thank you Dr Don for my big, white, beautiful smile!

I'm never more excited to attend a medical/dentist appointment than when I'm coming to this wonderful office. Every single employee here is incredibly positive, respectful, and great at what they do. Ask them yourself - I sometimes stop by and bug them with the smallest requests or questions just to be in that uplifting and supportive environment. There's a reason they get such consistently positive reviews!

Dr. Wilson and his crew are amazing. They truly have the best interest of the client at heart, even if it takes longer or is more difficult. My daughter has been very challenging and they have shown extreme patience and understanding with us, and have proven themselves over and over to be an office with heart, compassion, patience and of course, skill. I can't recommend them highly enough!

We've worked with Dr. Don and his amazing staff over the last five years as both of our kids have had braces. Dr. Don is one of those people who can make an instant connection with a kid that just makes the whole process so much easier. I can't imagine having worked with anyone else. Thank you Dr. Don!
