Get To Know Dr. Shane Wingler

A native of Ferguson, NC, a very small, rural town in the northwestern part of the state, Dr. Wingler spent a lot of time outdoors either recreationally hunting and fishing, or working on his family land. Learning a lot about craftsmanship, it was embedded in him to problem solve on the fly, work with his hands, and take pride in the work he had created.

After spending a great deal of time in the dental chair, he developed a great relationship with his family dentist, and came to admire his lifestyle and outlook on life. Combining his passion for health and fitness with problem solving and service to others, Dr. Wingler realized that dentistry would be the path for him.

Dr. Wingler received a Bachelor of Science in Biology, and a minor in Chemistry from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He went on to receive his Doctor of Dental Surgery Degree (DDS) from the UNC School of Dentistry. He has gone on to refine his craft through continuing education in various areas particularly in dental implants where he completed the Implant Pathway Continuum in Tempe, Arizona by providing free care to Veterans.

He is a member of the American Dental Association, the North Carolina Dental Society, the Academy of General Dentistry, and the International Congress of Implantologists. He is also a member of the Spear Study Club.

Dr. Wingler is providing exceptional care to the Lexington community, and is passionate about treating each of his patients with the warm-hearted care that he received as a young boy.

In his spare time, Dr. Wingler is an avid outdoorsman, so you might find him hunting, fishing, kayaking, hiking, running, or anything to do with outdoors and fitness. He also enjoys cooking and grilling and spending time with his family.
