Sommer Wisher is a proud Tarheel, graduating with her BS in Dental Hygiene from UNC School of Dentistry. Prior to being in the dental profession, Sommer worked for 12 years in the nonprofit sector both locally and globally.  Her career in private practice and volunteer work with Wake Smiles is a perfect combination to keep her passion for dentistry and access to care alive and she gets to put this into play in her new role as Executive Director of Wake Smiles, a free non-profit dental clinic in Wake County. 

Sommer is also an Adjunct Clinical Professor at UNC School of Dentistry in the Dental Hygiene Department, a member of the UNC Dental Hygiene Community Advisory Committee and UNC Dental Hygiene Strategic Planning Advisory Board. Outside of her career, she enjoys her family and seeing her sweet children grow!
