Dr. Wiggins graduated from Loma Linda in 1974, then went on to UCLA to earn a certificate in pediatric dentistry in 1976. He returned to Loma Linda in 1976 where he became chair of the pediatric dentistry department.

In 1979, Cisco--as he is known by his friends--created Loma Linda Children's Dental Group with Wil Nation. He relocated to Lewiston, Idaho in 1981 where he later served as president of the Lewis Clark Dental Association, chair for the scientific sessions for the Idaho State Dental Association, and a member of the Medical Services Bureau/Blue Shield Insurance procedures advisory board.

Dr. Wiggins has shown his interest in the well-being of the next generation by serving as a member of the Head State Board of Directors and the Walla Walla College Parents Advisory Board.

One of Dr. Wiggins' favorite pastimes is taking his family to Broadway plays.
