Associate Dean of UF Dental College Demoted For Relationship With Student
Published September 17th, 2012
GAINESVILLE - The University of Florida has demoted an associate dean in the College of Dentistry after he was accused of having a relationship with one of his students.
In an anonymous complaint filed earlier this year, Dr. Timothy Wheeler is accused of having a physical relationship with a 31-year-old student in the college's residency program.
The same complaint accuses Wheeler of giving that student favors and opportunities that were not offered to other residents.
The university launched an internal investigation shortly thereafter, and concluded that Wheeler displayed "poor professional judgement" although both he and the student deny any physical relationship ever existed.
As a result, Wheeler lost his position as associate dean, but will continue teaching students at the college.
