Dr. Wheeler’s passion for OMS began while working as a surgical assistant for another oral surgery practice in Northern Virginia. He realized how much he enjoyed getting to help patients look and feel their best that he decided to get into this fulfilling field. While he enjoys all aspects of oral & maxillofacial surgery, he is most interested in dentoalveolar, dental implants, facial reconstruction and pathology.

Dr. Wheeler keeps busy in and out of the office. He, his wife/fellow Dentist, Jennie and their dog Paisley, currently live in The Fan and don’t plan to leave anytime soon. They love all the restaurants and museums RVA has to offer.

Outside of work, Dr. Wheeler enjoys spending time with family, skiing, hiking, water-sports, golf, soccer and competing in triathlons. This VA native is also a lifelong Washington DC sports fan – GO CAPS!Dr. Wheelr - Sporting Event
