I’m over joyed to have found this place. The staff is so amazing. Really friendly and helpful. They made me and my daughter feel so welcomed and gave us a lot of information and advice. I would recommend them to anyone looking for an orthodontics. I called around to other places and even over the phone you could feel how welcoming this place is. I’m extremely happy with the service and overall atmosphere and experience.

The Wilson and Kim Orthodontist team are such wonderful, kind, funny and caring people! This was the first place I came to look for braces and after our very first meeting, my parent and I decided to commit to this office 😀 and we do not regret making this decision! I came in at 17 y/o and my treatment lasted 22 months. At age 19, I got them off and I fell in love with my new smile. I also got a DISCOUNT for my braces just for being a patient at the MARIN COMMUNITY CLINIC! They also speak Spanish! Both the assistants and Dr. Wilson which is a plus! Every time I came in, they always greeted me with a smile and kindness, and both Dr. Wilson and Dr. Kim took care of me. They listened to my concerns and helped me resolve them. A year and a half later, my smile is still straight and doing great! No complaints. I honestly miss coming into to their office, but they made it clear I can always come back for any help or for renewing my retainers. My uncle is currently a patient here too, and he also enjoys the care the office gives him. COME HERE EVERYONE FOR EXCELLENT BRACES - not kidding!

You will not find anyone better in Marin County.
This doctor is a perfectionist and it will show in your child’s final results.
I went to another orthodontist prior to finding Dr.wilson
and there was a clear difference in knowledge and expertise.
My brother’s child had an extreme dental malformation. They
came all the way from SF to see Dr. Wilson and the results were
Amazing! My Nephew’s teeth are perfect!
We are on our third child being treated by Dr. Wilson
and I cannot say enough about this wonderful doctor
and His Office staff. Trust me when I tell you he is fantastic.
You will not be disappointed!

Basic Care with Braces


Brushing and Flossing with Braces

This video shows how to brush your teeth with braces, how to use a proxy brush, and how to use a floss threader to get floss under the archwire of the braces so that you can properly floss your teeth. Proper oral hygiene is a crucial part of successful orthodontic treatment. You must have great oral hygiene in order to earn Dr. Don and Dr. Kim’s Tooth Tokens during treatment. As Dr. Don and Dr. Kim say, “Floss only the teeth you want to keep!”

Eating Habits


Rubber Band Wear

To create the most beautiful and functional bite, it is sometimes necessary for patients to wear rubber bands. Dr. Don and Dr. Kim will determine if you need rubber bands and will provide you instructions on how to use them. The teeth and jaws can only move toward their corrected positions if you consistently wear the rubber bands. Lack of cooperation following instructions will lengthen the treatment time.


How to Turn a Palatal Expander

Some patients will have a palatal expander during part of their treatment. After the expander is put in place, Dr. Don and Dr. Kim will give you instructions on how often to turn the screw inside the palate expander, and will also provide you with a key you will use to turn it. You will need to turn the expander yourself or have somebody else turn it for you. This video shows the proper technique for turning the palatal expander screw as well as common mistakes that can happen while trying to turn it.


AcceleDent Use & Care

If you have chosen to use AcceleDent Aura during your orthodontic treatment, please watch this video to learn about proper use and care.


Retainer Wear After Braces

Learn about wearing retainers after your braces are removed. Dr. Don and Dr. Kim recommend that retainers be worn all the time for 1 month after your braces are off (except when you are eating), and then worn nightly for as long as you want to maintain your beautiful smile…which means…for the rest of your life!
