Meet Dr. Amanda Wilson

orthodontic consultant dr. Amanda

DDS, MDS- CEO, Orthodontist, & Founder of Straightsmile Solutions®

A Leader in Orthodontic Consulting

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. 

Orthodontic Consulting Explained:

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™).   I met my husband, a general dentist, in dental school at UCSF. When he inquired about adding ortho to his menu of services, he asked which course he should take. I took a deep dive and I was appalled by the lack of quality, air-way focused,  holistic, comprehensive orthodontic education for General and Pediatric Dentists.  I’ve always loved to teach and I thought I could help save lives and airways by not only teaching primary-care, oral physicians how to do ortho the RIGHT way but also make the process efficient and productive.  On a personal note, I live in Honolulu and I love spending time with my husband and my teenage kids and volunteering as a Cadette Girl Scout® Leader and for USA Swimming® as a N3 Stroke and Turn Judge. I appreciate your support with my small business as I love the flexibility of orthodontic coaching because it allows me to travel with my kids who are both nationally-ranked, competitive swimmers. My  sixteen-year -old son is aiming for 2024 Olympic Trials and currently going through Division 1 recruiting. You make this dream possible for our ohana. Mahalo!
