I'm never more excited to attend a medical/dentist appointment than when I'm coming to this wonderful office. Every single employee here is incredibly positive, respectful, and great at what they do. Ask them yourself - I sometimes stop by and bug them with the smallest requests or questions just to be in that uplifting and supportive environment. There's a reason they get such consistently positive reviews!

Dr. Don's office is warm, and so "kid-friendly." We travel all the way from Albany because we know we are seeing the BEST in Dr. Don. He's awesome.....so encouraging, so positive, so pleasant!! (as are all his assistants!)
Staff is always friendly. Things to do for the children in the waiting room, BUT the wait is never very long. The scheduling of appointments is well done.

The work Dr Don did on my son was incredible! You have my permission to ask to see his before and after shots and you'll be amazed. I don't believe there are any teeth that are beyond help and my son's smile is a permanent glowing review of Dr. Don's excellent work.

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 and all his team are simply the best and most professional individuals. They cared for me like a family member and I could not be any happier with the results. I recommend anyone I know to his office because I know they will be treated by a team of caring professionals who love to have fun and make people smile.

Why Choose Us

They are taught how to straighten crooked teeth, align crooked jaws, and improve a smile. But orthodontics is about more than just using braces to straighten your or your child’s teeth.

Orthodontics is a science, but there’s an artistic aspect, too. Dr. Don is a specialist in the scientific aspect of orthodontics, and also has the special intuitive sense that makes him a smile artist.
