Wheeler Orthodontics Serving Toledo
We love serving the people of Toledo and helping them achieve their properly aligned smile goals. Whether that means traditional metal braces to treat a complex orthodontic problem or low-profile clear aligners to treat something simpler, we can help. We also help patients who are in the retention phase of their treatment. Check this map if you need directions to our Toledo location, or you can learn more about us on our business page.
If you aren’t sure which type of braces is best for your situation, we’re happy to help you find out at an initial consultation. We will determine what kind of treatment your smile will need. Traditional braces with metal wires and brackets can treat a much wider array of orthodontic issues, but many patients are good candidates for treatment with clear aligners.
Directions to Our Practice
If you aren’t familiar with our location in Toledo, we can help using a few notable starting points in town as a reference. For anyone coming to us from the direction of the Toledo Lucas County Public Library, get onto Michigan St heading southwest, then turn right onto Washington St. Get onto the I-75 on-ramp. Stay on I-75 until you can exit onto I-475 W. Take exit 18 onto Monroe St. After most of a mile, turn left onto Sylvania Ave across from the Dollar Tree. It can be easy to miss our turn from here. We’re on the second left and a couple of buildings in on the right.
If you’re coming to us from the direction of Urban Air Trampoline and Adventure Park (hopefully not because there was an accident and someone requires emergency orthodontic care, although we can definitely help if that’s the case!), head north on Reynolds Rd. Stay on it even at the Walgreens where it does a shallow zig-zag, then around the curve. Turn right onto Central Ave, then left onto Talmadge Rd. Turn right onto Sylvania Ave. Careful here because our turn is easy to miss, but after you pass Woodley Rd, it’s the third right (the first two are into parking lots).
Why Is Toledo Called “The Glass City”?
How did our city get its nickname? By being the glass capital of the world (not the glass-blowing capital of the world—that’s definitely Venice), with a long history of glass industry and glass art. A place you can’t miss seeing are the Museum of Art with its beautiful glass pavilion.
Get an Unusual and Nostalgic Workout in Toledo
If you want to get an exciting and very intense workout in town, as mentioned above, there’s a great trampoline park not too far from our practice. This isn’t the trampoline you used to have in your backyard as a kid. Urban Air Trampoline and Adventure Park is a great place to take the kids and even a good way to do something different for a date! Try out the Warrior, ropes, and wipeout courses, play a game of dodgeball, test out your ninja skills, or just see how high you can bounce. They even offer summer camp programs for especially bouncy kids.
