Meet the Team

The Team

Michael Wexler, DDS

Dr. Wexler was born and raised in a south suburb of Chicago, IL by his father, Samuel S. Wexler, DDS, also a dentist, and mother, Charlene S. Wexler, who is a bookkeeper and published author. After graduating Homewood-Flossmoor High School, he left Chicago area to go to University of Colorado in Boulder where he earned a BA degree in biology. In Colorado he enjoyed the outdoors by hiking, fishing, downhill and backcountry skiing, rock climbing, tennis, golf, mountain biking and softball. After enjoying sunny and mountainous Boulder for 4 years, he headed back to Chicago, IL where he spent the next 4 years attending University of Illinois Dental School earning a Bachelor of Science in Dentistry in 1996, Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 1998, and a Best-Of-the-Best Award for Excellence in Prosthodontics. He also met his lovely wife, Allison, there. She has been a great influence in his life and the community of Tucson where she keeps busy raising their three beautiful daughters, Lily, 17, Bella, 15, and Sage, 10, among her numerous volunteer and community leadership duties.

In order to advance his education in dentistry and get back to the mountains and warm weather, Dr. Wexler enrolled in an Advanced Education of General Dentistry residency at El Rio Health Center in Tucson. He loved the Tucson area so much that he decided to carry out his duty as a health care provider here by taking over the prosperous and well established practice of Dr. Jeff Van Deventer in 2003.

Celeste, R.D.H.

Celeste has been in dentistry for over 18 years and has been a Dental Hygienist for 16. Celeste is originally from the Midwest and decided to earn her dental hygiene degree in Big Spring Texas at Howard College, graduating Phi Beta Kappa. Celeste moved to Tucson to help care for her aging grandfather in 2002. This same year she began her career keeping her patients mouths happy and healthy.  Celeste strives for each patient to understand their oral health is essential to the health of their entire body. Over the years she has enjoyed earning her patient's trust and actively building professional, interpersonal relationships. Celeste takes pleasure in giving back through organizations such as the Tucson Hope Festival, Operation Christmas Child and the Bolivian Children's Fund. She also enjoys spending time with her son, hiking, biking and traveling on weekends.
