What Our Patients Are Saying!
Dr. Don's office is warm, and so "kid-friendly." We travel all the way from Albany because we know we are seeing the BEST in Dr. Don. He's awesome.....so encouraging, so positive, so pleasant!! (as are all his assistants!)
Staff is always friendly. Things to do for the children in the waiting room, BUT the wait is never very long. The scheduling of appointments is well done.
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 and all his team are simply the best and most professional individuals. They cared for me like a family member and I could not be any happier with the results. I recommend anyone I know to his office because I know they will be treated by a team of caring professionals who love to have fun and make people smile.
Don has worked on myself and my oldest son. He came HIGHLY recommended to us by another orthodontist who was retiring and I did my research and went to a number of practices before deciding to work with him. My oldest had a situation which can be tricky and the ultimate outcome isn't really guaranteed but he is 19 now and flashes a pretty handsome grin, if I do say so myself. All that terrible shyness and anxiety about his bite and how he looked (lower teeth closing in front of uppers) has been long ago forgotten. We moved but continued to travel to see him because I just wouldn't go anywhere else. He also happens to be a very nice guy and the office folks are also great.
We'll i tink this is the best place i have for my son ALEX LOPEZ he's AUTISTIC and they know how to treat him, , I really I appreciate it everybody in that place are very very nice they treat us with a lot of courtesy thank you dr. Wilson we keep in touch Maria and Alex
Why Choose an Orthodontist?
Why Choose an Orthodontist to Straighten Your Teeth?
All orthodontists are dentists, but not all dentists are orthodontists! Read below and watch this informative video to learn more.
To become a dentist, Dr. Don attended college for four years, then dental school for three more years to obtain his DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery). Then he had two years of post-doctoral, advanced specialty training to obtain his MSD (Master of Science in Dentistry) in orthodontics and dentofacial orthopedics. In this advanced training, Dr. Don learned:
- To treat crooked teeth by using braces and appliances of different types
- About the growth of jaws and teeth
- How to prevent or intercept abnormalities of the bite
But training for Dr. Don doesn’t stop there. The field of orthodontics is advancing and changing rapidly due to the use of computers and digital technology and the introduction of space-age materials, such as heat-activated memory wires. Dr. Don and his team stay certified and educated on new technologies and techniques through continuing education classes. That’s why Dr. Don is an expert at moving teeth, helping jaws develop and function properly, and working with his patients to make sure their teeth stay in their new positions.
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.

You’ll enter smiling and leave laughing when you have an appointment with Dr. Don and his caring, fun loving team.
