Meet Dr. Wheeler, D.M.D, P.A

Dr. Wheeler grew up in the small town of Lilly, Pennsylvania. After graduating from the University of Pittsburgh School of Dental Medicine in 1997, Dr. Wheeler joined the United States Army. He completed a one year general dentistry residency at Fort Campbell, Kentucky. Dr. Wheeler then served four years as a brigade dental surgeon for the 82nd Airborne Division at Fort Bragg, North Carolina. Following his service, he worked in a group practice in Fayetteville from 2002-2009. Dr. Wheeler left Fayetteville to pursue his dream to become his own boss. He bought Dr. Hal McKinnon’s well-established practice in April 2009 and is excited by the growth and improvements that have come to make it what it is today, his very own practice!

Keeping abreast to changes that can impact patient care in the dental profession is critical. Dr. Wheeler regularly advances his education in all aspects of dentistry in order to enhance his knowledge of dental practices and improve his skills so that he can provide his patients with the best quality care.

Outside of the office, Dr. Wheeler enjoys spending time with his wife and four children.  When time permits, Dr. Wheeler tries to get in a game of golf, and do some hunting.
