Pedo grad Wheeler in Aggie 100
Jon Wheeler, a 1999 graduate of HSC-Baylor College of Dentistry and 2001 pediatric dentistry graduate, was named on the 2009 "Aggie 100" - a list of the 100 fastest-growing businesses in the world owned by Texas A&M University alumni.
Wheeler's private pediatric dentistry practice in The Woodlands, Texas, was number 68 on the list. His practice grew 29.94 percent last year, according to the compounded annual growth rate calculated by Texas A&M. He started his practice in 2004.
Wheeler attributes his success to HSC-BCD, the pediatric dentistry department and its former chair, Dr. Suzi Seale.
"Your efforts as an educator played a major part in my winning this award and I wanted to thank you," Wheeler said in an e-mail to Seale.
The Aggie 100 was created by the Center for New Ventures and Entrepreneurship at Texas A&M's Mays Business School. The center provides encouragement, education, networking and assistance to entrepreneur-minded students, faculty and Texas businesses.
