Dr. Mark Wilson - Minneapolis, MN Periodontist Our team knows that experience matters. When you visit a dentist, you need to be confident that they have the knowledge and training to fix your smile. With this in mind, Dr. Wilson brings over 30 years of dental experience to Minneapolis patients. On this page, we have included information that illustrates why Mark Wilson, DDS is different from the rest.   Dr. Wilson was born and raised in Fargo, North Dakota. He received a B.S. in chemistry at North Dakota State University. His dental school training was completed in 1977 and he received Masters of Science degree in Periodontology in 1980, both from the University of Minnesota. Dr. Mark Wilson has practiced periodontology since 1980, and he has been located solely in downtown Minneapolis in the historic Medical Arts Building since 1989. Implants became a part of Dr. Wilson's practice in 1987. In 2008, he became the first periodontist in Minnesota to incorporate LANAP (Laser Assisted New Attachment Procedure) as a treatment for periodontal disease.  This procedure is much more comfortable for patients and gets much better results than traditional periodontal surgery.  Results have been so good Dr. Wilson continues to use the laser treatment almost exclusively for treatment of periodontal issues.  In 2010, Millennium Dental, the company that makes the LANAP equipment, invited Dr. Wilson to train as a national instructor for the new technology. In 2007, Dr. Wilson and orthodontist Dr. Karen Reese trained for and began implementing Wilckodontics as another exciting treatment option. Wilckodontics uses a combination of traditional periodontal techniques to greatly accelerate the orthodontic process.  Braces can be completed in months instead of years. Dr. Wilson is a member of numerous dental societies, including the American Academy of Periodontology, the Midwest Society of Periodontology, the Minnesota Association of Periodontists (including 5 years as Secretary and 2 years as President), the American Dental Association, the Minnesota Dental Association and the Minneapolis District Dental Society. Innovative Solutions For Healthier Gums & Teeth In 1993, Dr. Wilson founded and to this day, continues to run, the City of Lakes Study Club, a local chapter of the prestigious national Seattle Study Club. This is a group of general dentists and dental specialists dedicated to continued advanced study of comprehensive dentistry. This is achieved by workshop sessions with nationally renowned speakers and by clinical sessions, during which the group brainstorms about possible approaches to specific complex cases. In 2000, the national organization awarded Dr. Wilson with the first ever Educational Community Achievement Award as acknowledgement of his dedicated work both in his field and the community. In 2008, the members of the Study Club presented Dr. Wilson with a plaque recognizing him as a “bridge builder” enabling a more effective dental community in the Twin Cities.

We know that finding the right doctor or provider is important to your health. That’s why we want to ensure you have confidence in the provider profiles and listings you see on WebMD Care. Our provider data is sourced from the physicians themselves as well as publicly available databases. Any doctor or provider who claims their profile by verifying themselves can update their information and provide additional data on their specialties, education, accepted insurances, conditions they treat, and procedures they perform.

All the physician and provider reviews on WebMD Care are provided by users just like you. Knowing these reviews provide insight into how other patients feel about a doctor, we maintain internal policies and protocols to ensure the quality and accuracy of all reviews. Providers are not able to remove or modify reviews on their own. Reviews can only be removed after an internal review by our customer service team.

We value your input and encourage you to reach out to our support team if you encounter any issues.
