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.
