Dr. Rachel Wilson
Education and Experience
Dr. Rachel Wilson inherited a passion for helping others from both of her parents and grandparents. She always knew that she wanted to be a health care provider. She feels like she grew up at Wilson Family Dentistry (some of the staff and patients remember her as a young child). To her, it has always been like a second home, where the patients are treated like family.
Dr. Rachel attended West Virginia University where she completed her Bachelor’s degree in Biology. She received her Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree from the University of Maryland School of Dentistry where she graduated with honors. In 2018, Dr. Rachel Wilson joined her father in the dental practice that was started by his father 60 years prior making her the third generation of Wilson dentists in Gaithersburg, MD.
During her dental education at University of Maryland, Dr. Rachel was nominated and admitted into an exclusive clerkship with only one other member of her dental class. This clerkship gave her insight to the newest technological advancements in dental care allowing her to provide an accurate and optimal dental experience for her patients. She is passionate about bringing modernization to Wilson Family Dentistry. Visit us to see how we have implemented a digital workflow using an intraoral scanner (iTero, and Trios) and state of the art 3D radiographic imaging (CBCT). Both Dr. Wilson and Dr. Rachel love using this technology to provide predictable, accurate, and quality treatment for their patients.
By incorporating these advancements in technology Wilson Family Dentistry now offers orthodontic treatment via clear aligner therapy (Invisalign) as well as surgical guided implant placement. Dr. Rachel loves seeing a patient’s confidence bloom when their smile is transformed.
As the third generation to join this practice, Dr. Rachel is thoroughly enjoying her professional calling. She feels humbled to be working along side of her father and is dedicated to maintaining the highest standards – the honest, compassionate, and quality care – that has defined Wilson Family Dentistry for decades.
Out of the Office
Outside the office you will most likely find Dr. Rachel at an Orange Theory class or on her Peloton, walking her dog while listening to her latest audiobook, or trying new D.C. restaurants with her husband and their friends. She especially loves any activity she can do outdoors; biking or hiking trips and visits to the local breweries and wineries.
