About Your Dentist
For Dr. Wissler, dentistry has allowed him the opportunity to tap into a few of his passions, like doing things hands-on and taking care of people. But he also has a creative side, and in his free time he uses woodworking as a creative outlet. “Since I was 13 years old my brother and I would find scrap wood in the construction areas near our home and we would build things together with it,” he said. That eventually turned into a hobby for him. He and his wife even tackle projects together. Some of their homemade creations include coffee tables, a shoe rack, and even a cat perch for their cat, Snow.
