Why He Was Nominated

Together with his father, Dr. Wright offers patients comprehensive treatment, from the latest in cosmetic dentistry to advanced periodontal therapy. Since joining the family practice, Dr. Wright has put himself through extensive training courses that enable him to practice most kinds of dentistry.

Inspiration

His father. “My dad is 72,” Dr. Wright says. “He’s been practicing since 1968. He comes to work eight hours a day, four days a week, just like he did 20 years ago. I’m a dentist because of him.”

Tool He Can't Live Without

CT scan. “You’d never be able to take my CT scan away from me,” he says. “It’s an invaluable tool. I don’t know how people do without it.”

Something People Don't Know

Dr. Wright loves offshore fishing. His biggest catch was a blue marlin, somewhere between 300 and 400 pounds, which he reeled in from the waters of the Atlantic Ocean.
