Dr. Wright began his interest in dentistry when he was young, by observing his father practice as a Periodontist (gum specialist). As he grew older he had a natural sense of helping others, especially those with discomfort. Dr. Wright is quite fond of science and dentistry- dentistry allows him to help others as well as apply scientific principles. Through proper education to the patient, Dr. Wright helps patients understand their true dental needs, and wants all patients to understand that dentistry involves their total health not just their oral health. Dr. Wright was also privileged to work closely with two mentoring doctors for the first eight months post graduation from dental school who are MAGD’s (masters in the field) and helped to advance skills in diagnosis & treatment planning as well as gain expertise in restorative, endodontics and oral surgery.
Currently Dr Wright continues to take several hours of continuing education to stay abreast of the latest technological advances in the field. Dr. Wright earned his BS in Biological Sciences and his MS in Biological Sciences-Microbiology from Illinois State University in 1997 and 2000 respectively. Dr. Wright completed his DDS (Doctor of Dental Surgery) at the University of Illinois-Chicago in 2005. Dr. Wright is a member of the American Dental Association (ADA), Illinois State Dental Society (ISDS), as well as the Chicago Dental Society (CDS). In his free time, Dr. Wright enjoys the cosmopolitan lifestyle Chicago offers which involves participating with social organizations and attending fine arts events like plays and the cinema. From January of 2011 to 2015 Dr. Wright proudly served as a junior board director for the Art Institute of Chicago- Evening Associates group which focuses on getting young professionals interested in the art and culture with several events throughout the year. Dr Wright has now become an lifetime alumnus of the Evening Associates group to which he still participates.
