Dr. Wheelock's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Wheelock "Born and raised in Sioux City, Dr. Douglas Wheelock graduated from Sioux City Central High School in 1969. He then received his Bachelor of Science degree in biology from Briar Cliff College in 1973. He attended dental school at the University of Iowa and earned his Doctor of Dental Science degree in 1976 (and became a devoted Hawkeye fan in the process). After graduation from dental school, Dr. Wheelock returned to Sioux City. He began supervising the construction of his first dental office at 3901 Transit Avenue, working for Dr. Jerry Smith in South Sioux City, NE, until its completion in February 1977. In 1996, Dr. Wheelock moved his practice to its current location. He is a proud member of the Iowa Dental Association and the Academy of General Dentistry. Dr. Wheelock became business partners with Dr. Brian Bursick in 2004. Together they have created a highly successful practice focusing on the dental needs and desires of their patients. They have continued to grow with countless hours of continuing education to ensure that each patient receives the best possible care. They have also invested in their practice with cutting-edge technology such as CEREC and lasers. Dr. Jaicee Post joined our team of skilled doctors as well in 2016. In addition to his commitment to providing excellent dentistry, Dr. Wheelock is also dedicated to being involved in his community. He is active in his church, Third Presbyterian, where he serves on several committees. Dr. Wheelock earned his Eagle Scout Award as a youth and has served as an adult scouter in many capacities, including Webelos leader and Scoutmaster. Dr. Wheelock is married to his college sweetheart, Marilyn, and has three adult sons and three daughters-in-law. He is also the proud grandfather of five incredible grandchildren. When not working, Dr. Wheelock enjoys hunting with his two German Shorthaired Pointers, Sadie and Delle. He is a passionate fisherman who never passes up an opportunity for “one last cast.” Dr. Wheelock received his private flying license in 2004 and is qualified to fly a Cessna on wheels or floats. Dr. Wheelock is proud to call Siouxland home and enjoys providing quality dental care to the community. "
