Dr Don and his staff have always gone the extra mile to ensure all my daughters receive excellent care. My one daughter has sensory differences and having anyone touch her let alone work on her mouth. Dr Don and now Dr Kim always take extra time to make sure she is comfortable. All the office staff is amazing and I am so grateful for their care. Thank you we appreciate all of you more than words can say.
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

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!
