After graduating from NC State University with dual degrees in economics and business management, Dr. Richard (“Whip”) Wetherill, III continued his studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill’s School of Dentistry, where he received his degree in 1998. After obtaining his Doctorate of Dental Surgery, Dr. Wetherill returned with his family to Wilmington to set up his practice. He is currently a member of the American Dental Association, the North Carolina Dental Society, and the Wilmington Tri-County Dental Society.
Dr. Wetherill is a native of Wilmington, and resides there with his wife Susan and their three children. When he is not busy helping people with their smiles, you can usually find him at one of his children’s sporting events or other activities. In his free time, Dr. Wetherill is apt to be on the golf course, deep in the woods hunting, or simply in his yard trying to fight the weeds! Dr. Wetherill also enjoys playing coed soccer, serving on the parking and host team at his local church, serving Meals on Wheels once a month, and even helping BSA Troop 13 as a member of the Scout Committee.
