There is such joy and happiness felt at each visit to see Dr. Wilson, Dr. Kim and the entire staff. I feel like I am with friends and family by the way they treat me and all their patients. There is no better place to come to improve a smile and I always leave the office with a smile. I feel like their office is one of the happiest places on earth!
Best orthodontist office in town. The office is beautiful with state of the art technology. The entire staff is amazing. Dr Don has worked on 2 of my kids and has been incredible through each. He really cares about his patients and gets to know them.
Best Orthodontist Practice in Marin! My daughter finished treatment with Dr Wilson and now my son is seeing Dr Kim. My daughter receives so many compliments on how perfect her teeth are! Warm and inviting office, friendly staff, and very personable and skilled Orthodontists. Highly recommend!
Dr. Don & staff are THE BEST!!!! My daughter’s treatment was a big job and the progress so far has been TOP NOTCH!!!! Love the ladies in the office. So helpful and understanding with scheduling! Thank you!
Got braces last November from Dr. Wilson. The changes have been quick and stunning. I received a level of hospitality from the staff that amazed me from the start, and every staff member seemed engaged and professional. It’s clear to me that this is isn’t just any dentists office.
6/5 stars. Never did I think I’d have a good time watching Elf. Y’all did it for me. Thank you!
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!”
Proxy Brush Technique
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!
