Dr. Brian Wilde Joins Orthodontic Specialists of Tucson01 March 2020 - News
The past few years we’ve often been asked if we’re going to retire any time soon. Our response has always been that we look forward to being in the office each day. For almost 30 years we have been surrounded by a dedicated and caring team of professionals that have provided our patients with a quality of care that makes our office unique. We have had the privilege of forging extraordinary connections with our patients, their families and our colleagues that are more like family bonds than professional relationships. Thank you for the trust you have shown in choosing our practice.
As you know, we have been spending less time in the office. You may not know that Dr. Pearcy has had some health concerns that have influenced our decision to spend more time together. We felt it was important to find a way to protect the well-being of our patients and the office team that is a vital part of our patient’s care. For some time, we have been on the lookout for an orthodontist who could join the practice with the same philosophy and carry it into the future.
Recently, we were introduced to Dr. Brian Wilde. Dr. Wilde attended Brigham Young University on the prestigious BYU Academic Scholarship. He graduated Magna Cum Laude from the University of Nevada Las Vegas School of Dental Medicine and completed his orthodontic residency and Master’s in Oral Biology at the University of Nevada Las Vegas School of Dental Medicine. He was the recipient of the Outstanding Orthodontic Resident Award in 2015, is a member of the E. Steven Smith Student Dental Honors Society and is fluent in Spanish. He has been in the private practice of orthodontics since 2015.
We have spent the last 30 years creating a practice based on excellent care and service. Just as you were selective in choosing our practice, we have been careful to choose an orthodontist who shares our values. Dr. Wilde is very excited to join the practice and he is committed to providing the highest level of care and service. We are thrilled and fortunate to find someone who shares our vision and is eager to learn the insights we’ve gained in the last three decades. He and his family have extensive ties to the Southwest and are very excited to become a part of the Tucson community.
Considering Dr. Wilde’s commitment to excellence, the similarity in our treatment philosophy, his passion to learn, and the level of experience he brings; our transition will be a relatively simple one. While little will outwardly change on March 1, 2020, Dr. Wilde’s corporation will replace our corporation as the owner of the practice. Dr. A will remain involved in the care of our patients.
Dr. Wilde will provide a fresh perspective, another “set of eyes”, and an in-house third opinion to the practice. He is eager to re-invigorate the office and provide greater convenience, including expanding the schedule to offer more after-school appointments. The staff you have come to know are all planning to remain and make the transition as seamless as possible.
We intend to remain personally involved in the care of patients currently in treatment. We will stay involved in the practice to facilitate Dr. Wilde’s integration into the office and the community. Dr. Wilde looks forward to getting to know you and your family. We are very excited about the future of the practice. Thank you again for the confidence you have shown in us.
