DDS, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio
Why He Was Nominated
Seven years after starting a practice at 25 with just one employee, Dr. Wright now runs a booming multi-specialty practice. He was also instrumental in starting a facility that offers free dental treatment to patients who can’t afford to pay.
As a general dentist, Dr. Wright loves the variety in his work. “Having the ability to do over a dozen types of procedures in one day keeps me on my toes and keeps things from getting monotonous,” he says.
Exciting New Trend
The integration of cone-beam technology with CAD/CAM restorations and their application in various implant procedures.
Advice For Aspiring Dentists
