DeWitt C. Wilkerson, DMD


Dr. Wilkerson is known to say, “On a good day, we save a smile; on a great day, we save a life.”


He brings clear, straightforward principles and systems that practitioners can understand and implement immediately in the care of patients.

Dr. Wilkerson has worked over 35 years seeing thousands of patients suffering with joint problems, bite problems, bruxism, headaches and sleep apnea.

The majority of dentists have similar clinical concerns when diagnosing and treating masticatory problems: What is causing the problem? Is it going to break? Should I even get involved? Will I make it worse? How can I make it better? Dr. Wilkerson’s presentations help dental professionals gain the skills and understanding to become a problem solver and not a problem causer.

Dr. DeWitt “Witt” Wilkerson joined Dr. Peter Dawson’s private practice in 1982 where he is a partner. This has provided invaluable clinical experience in a world renowned clinical culture. Dr. Wilkerson lectures world- wide on the subjects of restorative dentistry, dental occlusion, temporomandibular disorders, airway/dental sleep medicine, and integrative dental medicine. He serves as a Senior Faculty/Lecturer and Director of Dental Medicine with the Dawson Academy and has provided 600+ days of lectures and hands on instruction to over 4,000 dentists.

Dr. Wilkerson is Immediate Past-President of the American Academy of Oral Systemic Health (AAOSH), Past President of the American Equilibration Society (AES), Director of Dental Medicine at the Dawson Academy, Adjunct Professor of Graduate Studies, the University of Florida College of Dentistry, and former Associate Faculty and Special Lecturer, the L.D. Pankey Institute.

Dr. Wilkerson’s passionate approach is amazing to witness. He has put many doctors on the path to identifying patients at risk for sleep disordered breathing and has raised awareness of sleep being a global issue and not just the focus of the mouth and the appliance.
