Interview with Dr. Wright:
Q. What made you want to get started in orthodontics?
A. I’ve always enjoyed working on the mouth and orthodontics is the “fun” part of dentistry. Patients you see are easy, happy, and wanting to come see you. You are changing their smile and they are happy to be there.
Q. What is your favorite part of your job?
A. I love seeing the changes as patients start to smile more, become less self-conscious, and gain self-esteem.
Q. Your office decor is pretty cool! Tell us a little more about that?
A. I love music and wanted to incorporate into my practice. I also love sports, so our new office in San Tan will be sports themed with some really cool autographed memorabilia.
Q. What are you looking forward to most this summer?
A. I look forward to seeing new patients in our offices, and traveling with my family.
