Dr. John C. Wilson
Dr. Wilson graduated from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 1983. Following graduation, he started his own private practice by essentially “hanging out his shingle” in East Bakersfield. Through word of mouth, his practice has grown to the busy, bustling practice that it is today. He is passionate about dentistry. Whenever treating patients he asks himself the same two questions: “Is this the best thing for the patient?” and “Is this what I would want?” This mantra has led him to truly believe that whatever is best for the patient is also best for his practice and the entire office therefore, the patient always comes first!
By surrounding himself with the very best team of professionals and utilizing the very latest in technology such as CEREC, Galileos Cone beam scans, and laser guided cavity detection to name a few, Dr. Wilson is capable of delivering the type of dentistry that is absolutely the best for his patients.
Dr. Wilson has also served organized dentistry at the local and state level. He is a past president of the Kern County Dental Society and has served on various state committees such as California New Dentists and California Political Action committees. He has made many trips to Sacramento in an effort to further organized dentistry.
In his spare time, Dr. Wilson enjoys many various interests and hobbies. Two of his favorites are bird watching and cooking. He is an accomplished “birder” and has led many field trips and bird tours locally and around California and the United States and Canada. A published author and co-author of several articles, he is a past member of the California Bird Records Committee and the current co-editor of the California Christmas Bird Counts for the American Birds journal. He and his wife Debbie enjoy spending time in the kitchen cooking for friends and family. Many people have said that if you get invited to their house for dinner, you probably shouldn’t say no!
