Longtime Williams Dentist Retires

IMG_9890Dr. Wayne Wilson of Williams will be retiring from his dentistry practice on May 1st, 2014 after 43 years of caring for the oral health of the Williams community.

Wilson began his practice in August of 1971, where he located to Williams.

“I wanted to work in a rural community,” said Wilson, “I had enough of the city and found a practice for sale.”

Wilson purchased the practice from Dr. Jan Swanson, in 1971.

Before beginning his dental practice in Williams, Wilson attended the University of California, Davis and received his dental degree at the University of the Pacific in San Francisco.

Growing up in Palo Alto, California, Wilson’s interest in dentistry came after he wanted to be an independent businessman and to become his own boss.

As Wilson began his career in Williams, he met his wife Karen where they raised a son and daughter.

“The community has been very supportive of the practice,” said Wilson, “we have always been busy.”

Wilson contributes the success of his practice to an array of long time staff members.

Currently, Summer Dunlap has been with Wilson for over ten years working as both the office assistant and dental assistant.

When looking back on his practice, Wilson says, “I will miss the daily interaction with my patients while I help them improve their dental health.”

“The support of the community and my patients has been wonderful,” Wilson added.

Wilson was one of the few remaining dentists that would be available to his patients after hours in the event of an emergency.

“Every night before leaving, I add Dr. Wilson’s home number to our voicemail,” said Dunlap, “you just don’t hear other dentists or doctors doing that anymore.”

Upon retiring, Wilson hopes to slow down and enjoy life.

“I will enjoy having time off to do the things I like to do,” said Wilson, “most of all, I will be spending more time with my family.”

Wilson is an avid hunter and fisher.

“After being in the office all day, between four walls and staring into a mouth, I love to get out and experience nature,” he said.

After closing his practice on May 1st, Wilson will remain a resident of Williams, but hopes to do some traveling around the country.

“My wife and I just purchased a fifth wheel,” said Wilson, “we plan on going places and doing some-thing.”

“I have been blessed to have practiced dentistry in a community that supported my efforts so greatly,” said Wilson, “It has been my pleasure to meet the dental needs of you and your family.”

Patents can have copies of their records made available to a dentist of their choosing by contacting Wilson’s office at (530) 473-2882 before May 1, 2014. All requests after May 1 must be submitted by mail, by writing Dr. Wayne Wilson, PO Box 99, Williams, CA 95987. K
