And under the urging of her program director, Dr. George Goeff, Dr. Wilson decided to become an orthodontist. She attended a 2 year residency program at Howard University College of Dentistry in Washington, DC where she received a Certificate in Orthodontics.

Upon completion of her education in 2000, Dr. Wilson realized it was time to start her career as an Orthodontist.
