For his post-graduate training, he received his Fellowship from the Academy of General Dentistry, and in 2004 was presented the Mastership Award, a prestigious honor earned by no more than one percent of dentists in the nation. It signifies Dr. Wilhite has taken more than 1,100 additional hours of continuing education in a variety of disciplines in dentistry.

The state of Texas requires dentists to take only twelve hours of continuing education each year, but Dr. Wilhite chooses to heighten his knowledge by taking at least 100 hours annually. He has studied at the prestigious Dawson Center for Advanced Dental Studies, learning major restorative techniques, and how to solve TMJ and bite-related problems. In October 2005, Dr. Wilhite was inducted as a Fellow in the American College of Dentists (ACD).

Less than 1% of dentists have reached this level of recognition.
