Tyler J. Wheeler DDS

Tyler J. Wheeler DDS

Dr. Tyler Wheeler grew up just south of Lapel in Fishers, Indiana and is a 2010 graduate of Hamilton Southeastern High School. While at Hamilton Southeastern, Dr. Wheeler was a member of the National Honor Society, Student Athletic Council, and was elected as Hamilton Southeastern’s Riverview Hospital IHSAA Role Model his senior year.  Dr. Wheeler was also a 4-year basketball player and a captain on the team that helped capture the school’s first Sectional Championship in 2009. 

Dr. Wheeler’s interest in dentistry started from his grandmother’s obsession with her grandchildren’s oral health. While growing up, if something was wrong with his grandmother’s teeth, they were simply removed. As a result, she found herself in a full set of upper and lower dentures at the young age of 25. She was so determined to not pass on her adolescent disregard of oral hygiene to her grandkids, she would keep her false teeth on display until every one of the grandkids brushed their teeth in the morning. Dr. Wheeler found himself fixating on dentistry as a result of her constructive scare tactics. 

After graduating from Hamilton Southeastern High School, Dr. Wheeler went on to major in Biology at Indiana University-Bloomington. During his time in Bloomington, Dr. Wheeler was involved in organizations such as Indiana University’s Dance Marathon, Student Association, and Pre-Dental Society. As an active member, Dr. Wheeler also held leadership and executive positions within the Sigma Chi fraternity on campus. After receiving his bachelor’s degree from Indiana University, Dr. Wheeler earned a Master of Science in Biology degree from Purdue University. Dr. Wheeler worked as a Biochemist for a private contractor at Eli Lilly’s Technology Center before attending dental school. 

In 2021, Dr. Wheeler received his Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) degree from Indiana University School of Dentistry and he accepted an offer from Bailey & Wright Dentistry to work at their new satellite office in Lapel -  Wright & Wheeler Dentistry. While Wright & Wheeler Dentistry was under construction, Dr. Wheeler worked at Bailey & Wright Dentistry in Indianapolis. 

Dr. Wheeler is a member of the American Dental Association, Indiana Dental Association, and Indianapolis District Dental Society. 

Dr. Wheeler married his high school sweetheart, Chelsea, in May 2021. They also recently bought a home in Fishers and have loved returning to a familiar location close to their families. Dr. Wheeler enjoys spending time with family and friends, exercising, playing golf, and trying out new restaurants. His favorite aspect of dentistry is building relationships with patients and working with his hands. He could not be more excited to meet and get to know the people of Lapel and other surrounding areas!
