Dr. Wilson was the first dentist in Minnesota to incorporate LANAP as treatment for periodontal disease. The Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure (LANAP) proved to offer much more comfort to the patient and provide much better results than periodontal surgery, which is traditionally used to treat periodontal disease. As a result of his success in implementing LANAP, Millennium Dental, which is the company that makes the LANAP equipment, decided to have Dr. Wilson become a national instructor for their technology. Furthermore, he was honored with several Top Dentist in the Twin Cities Awards from Minnesota Monthly and Minneapolis/St. Paul Magazine as well as the Educational Community Achievement from Seattle Study Club.

General dentists provide a wide array of services that are vital to patients’ continued health. These services include: preventive services — helping to maintain good oral health by stopping disease before it takes hold in the mouth; restorative services — receiving timely and appropriate treatment when a problem is identified; as well as cosmetic services — performing a range of cosmetic procedures, such as teeth whitening, cosmetic bonding – even porcelain veneers. General dentists also address overall health concerns, as oral health is seen as the mirror of general health. In fact, some dental problems may reflect issues in other parts of the body and vice versa.
