What Our Patients Are Saying!
Dr. Wilson and his staff are so great! Not only did they give me a great smile, but they were always so nice, funny, and caring--and provided a great atmosphere for everyone around them. They constantly made sure that I was comfortable and relaxed whenever I was there, and with a movie always playing right above me while I was being worked on, I actually had fun, too! It really is the best orthodontist office to be in.
To top it off, Dr. Wilson gave me an AMAZING smile, which, truthfully, I always get complimented on. He is such a perfectionist in his work--at the end of my treatment, he even went so far to make sure to move my teeth a fraction of a centimeter one way to make my teeth perfect! I truly, truly recommend him as an orthodontist.
Dr. Don was our Orthodontist of choice for 13 years straight. We consistently had a child in braces starting with our oldest son and ending last year when our youngest daughter had her braces removed. It was always a pleasure visiting Dr. Don's office. We love Dr. Don, his friendly staff, and his inviting, fun and comfortable office!! To top it off, our children have beautiful smiles, or more beautiful because of Dr. Don & Staff. We highly recommend his practice, if you are in need of orthodontia.
Dr Don is truly the "Rock Star of Orthodontists" both of my daughters' teeth were perfect by the time treatment ended; Dr Don is very kind and a true perfectionist and it shows in his work. Not only was the end result as expected we also enjoyed our office visits because the staff are so friendly, patient, kind and funny. The waiting area is enjoyable with the entertainment of the Kaleidoscope TV, magazines, tea and coffee. It really was relaxing while I waited for my girls to finish up. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Don and his fantastic staff.
Wow!! I was really wondering if Dr. Wilson would be able to fix my teeth/bite. He did! What a wonderful office. Great staff, really made me feel welcome every visit. Highly recommended!
Dr. Don and team are amazing. They always bring a very personal level of care to whatever they do. They are consummate professionals while maintaining a very human touch. I highly recommend them and their work.
The Dr. Don Difference
Why Choose Dr. Don?
All orthodontists attend two to three years of advanced specialty training to obtain their degrees in orthodontics. They are taught how to straighten crooked teeth, align crooked jaws, and improve a smile. But orthodontics is about more than just using braces to straighten your or your child’s teeth.
Orthodontics is a science, but there’s an artistic aspect, too. Dr. Don is a specialist in the scientific aspect of orthodontics, and also has the special intuitive sense that makes him a smile artist.
