Dr. Graham Wilson was born in Raleigh, North Carolina and was raised in the town of Goldsboro, NC. He graduated Magna Cum Laude with a B.S. in Biology from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington in 2008 and earned his D.D.S. from the University of North Carolina – Chapel Hill School of Dentistry in 2012, where he graduated with distinction. He then went on to complete his residency training in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Virginia Commonwealth University in 2016.
Graham is married to Hallie, a physical therapist at Physical Therapy Solutions. They live in the Short Pump area and enjoy spending time with family, travelling, appreciating nature, and being on the water, boating and fishing. They appreciate all that Richmond has to offer: the restaurant scene, parks and hiking, and proximity to both the beach and the mountains. They are expecting their first child in December 2016.
When asked why Graham chose to join COFS, “I had come to know most of the doctors at COFS throughout my residency at VCU and they seemed to not only be good surgeons, they more importantly were extremely kind, humble people. The culture of each office just seemed to fit my personality, and the atmosphere seemed light-hearted and fun.”
Dr. Wilson is excited to practice full scope oral and maxillofacial surgery with particular interests in dental implant surgery, dentoalveolar surgery including wisdom tooth removal, orthognathic surgery, facial trauma and reconstructive surgery.
Dr. Wilson has co-authored multiple articles and a book chapter in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery literature. He presented on the topic of horizontal ridge augmentation to facilitate dental implant placement in the Dental Implant Session at the AAOMS Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. in 2016.

People would be surprised to know… “Even though I attended UNC – Chapel Hill, I am a Duke fan. Hallie was a cheerleader at UNC Chapel Hill and is a diehard fan, and since I am a Duke fan, Duke-Carolina games at our house can get intense. We sometimes have to watch separately.”
Dr. Wilson will begin accepting patients at our Brandermill, Huguenot and Westerre Commons locations in late July, 2016.
