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 is truly the "Rock Star of Orthodontists" both of my daughters' teeth were perfect by the time treatment ended; Dr Don is very kind and a true perfectionist and it shows in his work. Not only was the end result as expected we also enjoyed our office visits because the staff are so friendly, patient, kind and funny. The waiting area is enjoyable with the entertainment of the Kaleidoscope TV, magazines, tea and coffee. It really was relaxing while I waited for my girls to finish up. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Don and his fantastic staff.
Dr. Don and team are amazing. They always bring a very personal level of care to whatever they do. They are consummate professionals while maintaining a very human touch. I highly recommend them and their work.
Five stars isn't enough. Dr. Wilson and his staff are amazing people! I've been really happy from the way they have treated my son. The staff is really friendly and professional, they even take the extra steps to make you comfortable. They were very flexible to schedule the appointments. But the most important thing is that he does a great job. We are really happy with Eric's new smile after the removal of his braces.
If you are looking for a new orthodontist or considering checking out Dr. Wilson, do it! I promise you won't be disapointed.
Novato is so lucky to have an orthodontist with the skill, value and professionalism of Dr. Wilson! With 6 patients in my family, I can tell you Dr. Wilson does equally well with the simple cases and the complicated cases. He's great at what he does and uses top-notch equipment. As a result, there aren't any surprises, just beautiful teeth when he's done. His staff is equally amazing and puts everyone at ease (kids and adults). Everyone should take advantage of Dr. Wilson's offer to see kids starting at age 7 for free. This helps him decide when to start treatment and can save teeth and tears.
Digital X-ray machines more accurately diagnose your or your child’s orthodontic condition. They offer many advantages in detecting and treating orthodontic problems with significantly less radiation, and are just one of the ways in which computer technology is advancing orthodontic treatment.
- Less radiation exposure for our patients
- Quicker, more efficient record taking during appointments
- Improved diagnostic and analysis capacity
- Advanced image manipulation and computer enhancement
- Increased enlargement capabilities
- Easier exchange of records for treatment coordination with other dental professionals
- Less environmental impact (No chemicals or film to dispose, less paper used)
The greatest benefit of digital X-rays is that Dr. Don can use computer enhancement to make the images larger and clearer, and he can also modify the contrast in order to better study specific areas.
This means he can more accurately diagnose your or your child’s orthodontic condition and create the customized treatment plan required to correct the problem. He will also be able to better illustrate the condition and treatment plan so that you will understand every step of your or your child’s orthodontic journey.
Take a look at the images below. The top image (shown below) was taken of a 7-year-old child with a conventional film X-ray machine. Something looked suspicious to Dr. Don, so he took his own digital X-ray to allow for computer enhancement.
The bottom image is Dr. Don’s digital X-ray. You can see clearly the extra tooth that Dr. Don was able to diagnose and treat at an early age with no complications. This is just one example of how technology can improve Dr. Don’s ability to recognize problems at a young age, and why all children should be seen by an orthodontist at age 7.
