Primary Care Provider
A descendant of three generations of health professionals (his grandfather was one of the first African American dentists in the South), Dr. Arnold never considered any other occupation. He grew up "hanging around the dental office," watching his grandfather work while discussing community politics. His father was a general medical practitioner in Detroit, Michigan. According to Dr. Arnold, "In my practice, one of my primary goals is to eliminate the fear patients have toward dentistry and to present the discipline in a fun and enjoyable way. Dr. Happy Tooth is my way of presenting the issue of dentistry to kids in a non-threatening environment. It also presents dental hygiene as a pleasant learning experience." Dr. Arnold attended the same college as his parents, Fisk University in Nashville, Tennessee and went on to Meharry Medical College, the alma mater for his father and grandfather. Good fortune was with him when he was accepted into San Francisco’s Mt. Zion residency program in 1972. Mt. Zion has one of the leading residency programs for dentists in the country and only accepts three graduates per year. Dr. Arnold made a name for himself in the Bay Area when, in 1974, he teamed up with Dr. Collins, author of Your Teeth, a handbook on personal dental care, and Dr. William Pitman, the first African American dentist to open a practice in the East Bay in 1930. Within a year, Dr. Arnold had over 100 patients of his own. Today, Dr. Arnold, and his wife and dental practice partner, Dr. Wendi Wilson have over 3,000 loyal and "happy" patients. Dr. Arnold is a Fellow in the Academy of General Dentistry, on the hospital staff at Mt. Zion, Herrick and Alta Bates, and is a member of both the National Dental Association and the Berkeley Dental Association.

I certainly recommend that you make your next dental appointment with Dr. Arnold and Dr. Wilson. You and your teeth will be Happy you did!!
Great Dentists - Really friendly and experienced staff - make going to the dentist office a fun experience. Definitely recommend this office
I have never been to a better dentist. You are doing a disservice to yourself and your teeth if you don't make these wonderful professionals your primary dentist. They have an amazing referral program that allows you to refer people for credit; they are patient and they understand the meaning of quality and care. They will always be my primary dentist as long as I live in the bay area!
My experience has been very positive. Good office dynamic.
I’ve had a few appointments and it’s been the best dentist experience I’ve had. Great friendly staff and I feel genuinely cared for. Dr. Tran does good work and I also had a good interaction with Dr. Arnold when Dr. Tran was out. Definitely recommended
I work as an assistant to the doctors and I really enjoy working here. Everyday I wake up i'm excited to come back to the office because Ashley is the best! . I have been in the field for a very long time and after watching the Doctors and the staff work, I can say with confidence that the care that is provided to the patients is Awesome. I, myself, have received stellar work done from this office so , of course, I would recommend this office to my family and friends.
Staff is awesome, everyone treats you like family. Enjoy being part of this team
I am a provider at this office and it is pleasure working with such compassionate and competent people to give the highest standard of care to our patients!
Proud to be a part on this team,so grateful for the opportunities that was given to me.
This was hands down the BEST dentist I've ever been to! I've moved a lot over the last 20 years and been to about a dozen different dentists, but this was by far the best experience I've ever had.
First of all, Ashley was exceptional at dealing with my complicated schedule to find something that worked, I loved the option to communicate by text.
As soon as I walked into the office I was greeted warmly and everyone had big smiles (what you want to see at a dentist!), a very kind man took my coat and joked with me which made me feel at ease from the get go.
Next, Alexis did a great job taking my x-rays and photos and making me feel comfortable. Finally I was seen by Dr Le, who explained what he was doing and was extremely gentle. Everyone was professional, but friendly and easy to talk to. All the equipment looked state of the art and the office was very clean/modern.
Overall, fantastic experience and service with a smile. I'm almost sad that I don't have to go back for another 6 months!
Dr. Le is a great doctor doing a great job on my teeth, i like it everything what he have done. Thanks.
I have been a patient here for 2-3 years and these are the nicest, kindest, most good-looking dentists west of the Mississippi. They have always explained procedures, policies, and payment schedules in an easy-to-understand manner and have treated me like a prince! They have always been able to accommodate my crazy schedule and fit an appointment time that works for everyone. The service they provide are excellent all around! 10/10. Would recommend!
Everyone that works at Arnold and Wilson is kind, diligent and does great work. Thanks for everything!
I have always been uncomfortable at the thought of dentists but everyone here is very nice. Dr. Sylvia is extremely accommodating and always making sure you are not experiencing any pain. She made my visit pleasant and even called to make sure I was good the next day. Thanks guys
I became a patient nearly 9 months ago AND I love IT. It is perfectly located and the staff are friendly. I have enjoyed my visits and will continue being a patient with them as long as I live in the Bay Area. Thanks!
This is a wonderful office. Every single worker I've interacted with has gone above and beyond with kindness and care, and it has been a night and day difference from other dentists I've been to in the region. During uncertainties with my insurance, they took time to make sure that I was as informed as possible before moving forward with any procedures that might have put unexpected costs on my plate and have made me feel safe rather than vulnerable.
Super dentist's office!...very fast and professional service with polite staff. Would definitely recommend this dental group to anyone in the area looking for a positive dental experience!
Our whole family have had great experiences for the last four years at Dr Arnold and Dr Wilson’s practice - the entire staff are lovely - professional, friendly and down to earth.
We were recently in a position where our coverage was ending abruptly, and they managed to book both of my kids for a checkup just before our coverage ended, and juggled things so that they didn’t miss their summer camp in the afternoon.
The staff are always great at communicating different treatment options and the consequent pricing, and my kids always leave happy with their balloons!
Thanks Dr Happy Tooth!
I love Dr Arnold, Wilson and all of the dentists and staff. They are the absolute BEST! My family has entrusted them with our dental health for at least 10 years!
Dr. Arnold is an amazing dentist and deep-listening human being. He diagnosed my dental situation after a thorough exam, analyzed the options, and then broke down the plan for me, adult to adult. He is a keen observer of both teeth and human's capacity for information and change.
I like the happy atmosphere inside my Dentist office. I've been going here for about ten yrs and I keep going back. Doctor Arnold, Gloria and other staff make you feel confrontable. Very professional. They always work with you to get you in..especially if you have a hectic schedule. I feel like family. You will leave very satisfied and with a smile for sure. Highly recommend this Dentist office.
I trust Dr. Arnold to help me make the best choices for my dental care. I have been his patient for over 40 years and my children and grandchildren see him. Visits to the dentist are a highlight for my grandchildren.
Always a positive experience when visiting! I’d definitely recommend.
The staff is always very helpful and willing to go above and beyond in their patient care! I appreciate them all for they do, highly recommend to any looking for a new dental office!
Always great seeing the folks over at Arnold & Wilson’s me and my wife been coming for years now we feel like family.
My mother has been a patient for years. And although I'm not financially sound, the people in this office treated me like I deserved humane care.
I have been afraid and struggling with dental and medical care since my financial hardship began and the extreme disrespect and complete disregard for my humanity had been internalized until visiting this office. They have restored a nugget of my faith in humanity. .....and they weren't even able to help me with my situation. But, they were empathetic as opposed to nonchalant. They (not me) looked into other ways and other offices that might've been able to help me.
To be sure, once I am in a better position financially, this will the dental office I go to.
Arnold & Wilson has got to be the best dental office I’ve ever been to. They’re organized, friendly, knowledgeable, and compassionate. I was actually surprised by how little I paid for an initial visit.
I've been here for a cleaning and to get a small cavity filled and really enjoyed both experiences. Everyone I interacted with was noticeably friendly and relaxed, and the hygienist helped me have a pleasant cleaning without pain when I told her my teeth became sensitive to pressure and temperature in the last year even though they are in great shape otherwise. She had a plan in place to make sure I didn't experience pain, and it worked! I also think this office is reasonably priced, which is saying a lot for the bay area!
Best dentist office ever. I have been using them for ten years and my teeth are perfect and healthy due to their expertise. Normally, dental treatment and visits are unpleasant and painful. However, now with Arnold and Wilson whose friendly staff make you feel like part of their family. Their patience and gentle care makes going to the dentist a delightful experience. Thank you for being such great dentists and dental staff.
I have been a patient at Dr. Arnold & Wilson's office for the past 23 years. I have been treated professionally over the years with all my dental needs, routine maintenance with a high level of care and understanding. I trust both Dr. Arnold and Dr.Wilson completely and their staff knowing that they have my best interest in mind. I will their patient for LIFE.
There is nothing better than a friendly calm atmosphere to get your mouth worked on.
Everyone I have encountered there is really cool.
