What Our Patients Are Saying!
Dr. Don Wilson and his staff have been absolutely wonderful! When we first walked into their office for a consultation, my daughter needed a lot of work in order to get her smile in line but Dr Don assured the both of us that they were up for the task and boy did they exceed our expectations! Not only did we leave their office today braces free (removed earlier than planned) but my daughter was so excited and exclaimed that she felt like a whole new person and loved the person looking back in the mirror. I definitely recommend Dr. Don to anyone, everyone there is full of such caring and vibrant personalities and will take such good care of you or your child’s needs!
Dr. Wilson took us aboard about 2 years ago. His method of assessing our family's teeth was thorough and meticulous. When necessary, he made sure that he took X-Rays from different angles in order to get the best prognosis and course of treatment for our 'disorderly' teeth.
Throughout our treatment, we had to come to him many times, without advanced appointment, because we broke certain thread or braces. He and his crew always had time for us.
When we moved 3-hours away and about to go to school outside the US, Dr. Wilson consulted our initial X-Rays and course of treatment, and adjusted his schedule according to our plan! The result of his treatment was FIVE STARS!
Thank you, Dr. Wilson. We will be back...
My experience having adult braces from Dr. Wilson and team was Wonderful and left me with a smile I am proud of. His attention to detail and expertise is hard to find. I would highly recommend him anyone looking for a quality orthodontist that wants it done right the first time. His prices are extremely affordable for the latest technology in dental care. The office is creatively designed and the team is a close nit family that makes you feel welcomed and special every time.
I am a 42 year old woman that had braces when I was younger but my teeth started to shift a few years ago. I had heard that Dr Don was “the best” in Novato so I didn’t bother to check out the competition and went with a complete set of metal braces since I wanted to move things along quickly. I absolutely cannot find fault with anything that their office does. It’s very apparent that they take great strides to ensure that each patient receives the highest quality of care and attention. I am thrilled with the results and am receiving compliments on my *perfect* teeth daily. I’m so happy that I went to “the best” guy in town. Thank you Dr Don for my big, white, beautiful smile!
We've worked with Dr. Don and his amazing staff over the last five years as both of our kids have had braces. Dr. Don is one of those people who can make an instant connection with a kid that just makes the whole process so much easier. I can't imagine having worked with anyone else. Thank you Dr. Don!
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.
