Orthodontist

Founder of StraightSmile Solutions®

Dr. Amanda Wilson I’m Amanda Wilson, an orthodontist, dental consultant and dental advisor by profession. After 10 years in private practice in the San Francisco Bay Area,  I created StraightSmile Solutions® as an orthodontic consulting company that directly services dentists, dental specialists, and dental labs and their unique needs.  I can consult on any orthodontic service, process, vendor or procedure but ultimately my core values are airway-focused (AirwayDontics™), non-extraction, non-surgical, early orthodontic treatment (My Phase 1 Smile™). Orthodontic lab fees are a concern, so through Bid My Ortho Lab™, I match doctors and treatment plans with the best, lowest-price orthodontic lab solution.   On a personal note, I live in Honolulu and I love spending time with my husband and my school-aged kids and volunteering as a Junior Girl Scout® Leader and for USA Swimming® as a Stroke and Turn Judge.

At StraightSmile Solutions®, our goal ultimately is to educate doctors to create healthy and happy smiles.
