I’ve been taking my kids to Wilson and Kim Orthodontics for the last 7 years. Today I brought two of my kids in for their appointment. Our family has been having a rough time of it. Getting to our appointment was a challenge in itself. As soon as I walked into their office feeling drained and broken, I immediately felt at peace, like I was with my closest family. The genuine love and care this office shows for everyone is above and beyond. I’m so thankful to know these amazing humans who make this world a better place. Not only do they give the best orthodontist care, they do all they can to make you feel comfortable and supported.

Thank you!

I conducted a lot of research before I chose Wilson and Kim. They have been true to their word and they are excellent orthodontists. The entire team is so attentive and caring. As a working adult, I also appreciate their efficiency - they are always on time with my appointments. It's a very well oiled machine! I am in good hands. Highly recommend.

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!”

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!
