    Dr. Wheeler’s work is exceptional. He is ethical and honest. His staff is great and the office is immaculate. Each person I have recommended to him has been just as pleased.


    I’ve been coming to Dr. Wheeler for years because I trust him. I know he knows what he’s doing, he’s been working with the same people, and I know I can rely on and trust all of them. He’s been in business for so long and there’s a reason why.


    I had a complex case when coming to Dr. Wheeler. I was so nervous when he first brought it up to me, but as he went through the details over the condition I had and the work he’d do, I could tell he knew what he was doing. Then when the teeth were corrected, you couldn’t tell I had an issue to begin with. I feel great!


    I’m always so hesitant to go to the doctor or dentist, just out of my own phobias. Going in, I always want to make sure I know exactly what’s going to happen during and after any procedures or check-ups. Thankfully Dr. Wheeler answers all of my questions thoroughly and efficiently. So I make sure I always go back to him. His staff even know I’m like that too, so they talk me through anything they do too.


    At my last dentist, I felt like I wasn’t really cared for because it was a quick in and out, no questions asked. But here I feel like I’m really taken care of and that my time is well spent. On the other side, I know he’s not keeping everyone else waiting forever. The staff is really on it here without being a rush job.
