Brian R. Wilde, DDS, DMD

Board Certified Orthodontist

Dr. Brian Wilde, DMD, MS, was born and raised in Southern California.  At a young age his mother and father noticed his natural ability to work with his hands and encouraged him to pursue a career in dentistry where he could utilize his natural talents.  He earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Business Management from Brigham Young University where he met and married his wife Laura.  After completing his undergraduate work, they moved to Las Vegas, Nevada, and Dr. Wilde attended University of Nevada Las Vegas for dental school where he graduated Magna Cum Laude.  Following dental school, he was one of only four residents accepted into the Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics residency program at UNLV where he received his master’s degree in Oral Biology and certificate of advanced education in Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics. Dr. Wilde received the distinguished honor of “Outstanding Resident” during his residency as chosen by the orthodontic faculty.  

Dr. Wilde is a board certified orthodontist with the American Association of Orthodontics, a recognition held by few orthodontists in the Tucson, AZ area.  This recognition demonstrates his commitment to excellence in his field and his continual pursuit of education and advanced training in orthodontics.  Dr. Wilde and his wife Laura moved to Tucson in March of 2020, and they are thrilled to be living in the beautiful southwest.  Dr. Wilde and Laura have three energetic children: Lincoln, Cindy, and Rose.  In their spare time they like being outdoors with their kids.  They enjoy hiking, mountain biking, rock climbing, and boating.  In fact, Dr. Wilde has been water skiing and wakeboarding at Lake Powell since he was 8 years old!
