We believe that choosing your orthodontist is so much more than what you read or hear in advertisements. We are part of our community and we serve those around us. Orthodontics is not a commodity that can be grabbed off of a shelf or ordered from the internet- it’s a service unlike any other you will ever experience. Our success in treating you or your family members will have life-changing effects on the recipients.
Our entire team has a strong sense of community involvement going back to 1992 when our practice first opened. Here is just a sampling of the incredible community service portfolio we have achieved.
Dr. Wise was co-founder and chair of the Rite to Smile Foundation. Each year, this group-with the North Texas Dental Society- organizes Give Kids a Smile for Collin County and the school nurse referral program for Frisco and McKinney. Rite to Smile also hosts a fund raising event each year to assist local and statewide outreach programs to benefit the underprivileged.
Dr. Wise has served as President of the Frisco Chamber of Commerce (1996-1997), North Texas Dental Society (2001) and the University of Texas Orthodontic Alumni Association (2003). Giving back to the profession and the community that has been so important in his life, John makes the time that is necessary to serve others.
Dr. Wise has served on the advisory committee for the Collin College Dental Hygiene School and he has been a guest lecturer for their students. His subject matter- Orthodontics of course!

Dr. Wise served for several years on the Board of Directors for the TDA Smiles Foundation in Austin. As treasurer, he helped oversee the funds that were used to assist those in need all over the state.
Our team each year provides mouth guards to our athletic teams so they can protect their smiles and prevent concussions as part of their athletic activities.
Dr. Wise has chaired KidSwing McKinney since 2008. This event recently helped Ben Sater surpass $1 million dollars in charitable donations to Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children. Ben also was given a national award from Prudential Investments as one of the top 5 high school volunteers in the country.
Our team is providing pro bono orthodontic care to children in need in our community through two programs- Smiles Change Lives and Give Kids a Smile. We work with local dentists with big hearts and caring souls to care for these kids who cannot get help any other way.
Active in his church, Dr. Wise served on the ministerial search committee in 2006. The two year process was successful as Patrick Price joined our spiritual community in 2007.
We have also sponsored countless sports teams, band performances, field trips into local schools, parades, newspaper and yearbooks, etc, etc. The list is long, but our commitment to our community is without bounds.
