Education and Training
After graduating one B+ short of valedictorian at Mira Mesa High School, Dr. Wilson went on to attend UCSD, where he obtained his undergraduate degree in Biology. He was then accepted into UCLA’s prestigious School of Dentistry, where he graduated in the top 10% of his class. Dr. Wilson further trained at the Veteran’s Dental Clinic in Los Angeles, where he was able to help treat many U.S. veterans in need of good dental work. After five years in L.A.

Philosophy of Care
Dr. Wilson prides himself on minimizing pain and maximizing comfort while correcting his patients’ dental concerns. Dr. Wilson very carefully delivers local anesthetic and offers various forms of sedation dentistry, as well as pillows, blankets, and music or movies to enjoy during your treatment visits. Dr. Wilson always takes his time when explaining treatment needs and the many options available to our patients. He will attempt to thoroughly answer all questions you may have. Dr. Wilson will always treat you like you are family and give you 100% of his attention and skills every time you see him.
“It has always been my personal goal and desire to be able to provide the highest level of dental care in a gentle and caring manner. I want all my patients to feel like they are treated like family.”
Dr. Wilson places a high emphasis on treating patients with the utmost respect and kindness. Dr. Wilson got his caring and gentle demeanor from his loving and supportive mother. And his wonderful father, the engineer, gave him a “mechanical brain” with desires for perfection and precision. All immensely important character traits in a good dentist!
Dr. Wilson loves to work with patients of all ages and backgrounds. He has helped many individuals who are scared and nervous about dental treatment become relaxed and calm by showing them that dental care doesn’t have to be this horrible, scary, painful thing when done by the right person in the right setting! His experience, skills, and commitment to helping patients feel as comfortable as possible may be some of the major reasons why Dr. Wilson has been voted one of San Diego Magazine’s top 100 dentists in San Diego 10 years in row from 2006-2016! Dr. Wilson is highly respected by his peers and often treats other dentists and many local physicians when they too need dental work.
Dr. Wilson is an excellent dentist who takes the time to explain procedures, plan of action, and cares for his patient’s comfort throughout treatment & follow-up.
Staff are well trained and are very professional.

How Do I Choose a Dentist?
Choosing a dentist with whom you feel confident and comfortable is one of the most important decisions you will make as you research your options. Here are a few tips that can help you in the selection process:
Research the dentist’s background, history, and credentials.
Your dentist should have a proven record of education, training, and experience. This is particularly important for dentists who focus on cosmetic and restorative treatments in addition to general dental care. Be sure to evaluate where the dentist has been trained and educated, the memberships and affiliations they currently hold, and any recognitions and awards they have received. This information can provide a greater picture of your prospective dentist’s experience and commitment.
Read patient reviews and testimonials.
You will likely be able to find a number of reviews about your dentist on the practice’s website and on third-party review sites. Learning about the experiences of other patients can help you gain insight into what you can expect from the dentist and the level of care provided at a specific practice.
View before-and-after photos.
A dental treatment before-and-after photo gallery can give you a clear look at how specific procedures can transform a patient’s smile. Before-and-after photos are often available on a practice’s website. If not, you can request to see them when you arrive for your first visit. Photo galleries can be good indicators of what can be expected from treatments that you may be considering.
Take a look at the practice’s technology.
The technology utilized at a dental practice is a crucial element of care. There have been many advances in dentistry over the years that have made diagnosis and treatment safer, more comfortable, more effective, and more convenient. Technology and equipment designed to provide patients with less invasive treatment, more precise techniques, and less discomfort during the procedure are some of the things to look for when evaluating a dental practice.
Questions to Ask Your Dentist
You should never feel hesitant to ask your prospective dentist questions about their background and what you can expect from them. A good dentist should welcome the chance to address any concerns you may have and you should feel that he or she is communicating with you openly and honestly.
Here are a few important questions to ask your dentist that can help you decide whether they are the right choice for your needs:
- How long have you been in practice?
- Do you have specialization or a particular focus on certain fields of dentistry? If so, which ones?
- Do you regularly pursue continuing dental education and additional training?
- Are you skilled and experienced in a comprehensive range of dental procedures, treatments, and techniques?
- Which professional dental organizations are you affiliated with?
- What are the treatment options that can help me fulfill my unique needs and goals?
