About Us

Dr. Tara J. Wheeler, DMD

Dr. Wheeler is a native of rural south Alabama, having been born in Mobile, then raised in the small town of McKenzie. She earned a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from Troy State University, and wore a pair of steel-toed boots to work for several years before hanging up the hard hat. She earned her degree in Dentistry at the University of Alabama in Birmingham, where she graduated with honors. She is a proud member of the American Dental Association and Alabama Dental Association.  


She feels strongly that dental care should be made accessible to those who need it most, and pursues this passion close to home by volunteering with the Alabama Free Clinic. She has also participated in Remote Area Medical, a non-profit volunteer work force of professionals who provide free health care to rural and under-served areas of the United States and the world.


Dr. Wheeler's family includes her husband Brian, her daughter Morgan, and their two miniature dachshunds - Gracie and Piper. The Wheelers are active members of their church. They enjoy outdoor activities, including hunting, fishing, camping, and golf (when watching college football isn't keeping their autumn weekends busy)!
