Meet Heather from Oklahoma

Heather Wheeler, RDH was born in Coffeyville, Kansas and raised in Duncan, Oklahoma.  She dreamed of being a dental hygienist since she was eleven years old and fulfilled that goal when she graduated from the University of Oklahoma in 2012 with a Bachelor of Science in Dental Hygiene.  She began working at Neighborhood Services Organization after graduation where she not only provides dental care to patients, but also does outreach events to inform the community about proper oral care and NSO’s low cost clinic for those who are uninsured.  She recently helped implement a program in Oklahoma City Public Schools that allows students in desperate need of dental care receive that care at NSO at no cost. Heather’s favorite part about working at NSO is “being able to make a long term difference in someone’s life by teaching them the importance of oral health and how it affects their overall health.”  In her spare time, Heather and her husband enjoy spending time with their four dogs and taking road trips.
